Water treatment/filtration system for a well. The installation of a new pump, new holding tank, 2 stage water filtration system, water softener and a UV light.
The following is a quick walk through for a whole home, well water treatment system. This system is designed for hard water, with some major discoloration caused by sediment in the well water. After examining the water test we came up with a comprehensive system that best fits the clients needs and desires. I will present to you each filtration/treatment option we used and why.
REMOVAL OF THE OLD WATER SYSTEM
The customer was telling us the water softener that was currently installed was not working very well. So after some testing of the water quality, we determined the Resin on the interior of the unit was no longer good. Instead of replacing the RESIN the customer wanted to purchase a new system and change their storage tank as well as their old water pump. We recommended a couple other upgrades and the client agreed, so off we were on the installation of the new equipment.
Step 1: NEW WATER STORAGE TANK AND PUMP.
We installed a new water storage tank with a 44 gallon capacity. This tank was more than double the size of the old storage tank and will much better meet the needs of the entire family. This tank helps with the water pressure which comes from the pump. The next step was installing the new 3/4 horsepower pump. We took the one inch copper line that comes into the home and installed a special NPT fitting for the 1 1/4 female NPT fitting that went inside the pump. ALWAYS REMEMBER TO PRIME A PUMP WHEN INSTALLING A NEW ONE!!
Step 2: New water treatment/filtration devices.
Step 1 : 2 stage 20 * 4.5 inch water filtration system with pressure gauges. Stage 1 is sediment filtration to 5 microns, to remove larger particulates in the water. Stage 2 is a activated carbon filter to remove and reduce VOCS, pesticides, herbicides as well as heavy metals to name a few.
Step 2: 40,000 grain water softener. Get's rid of the calcium and magnesium that over time will choke the plumbing in your home. The Ion exchange system creates soft water and protects your the plumbing fixtures in your home, the laundry machine, hot water tank, dishwasher and any other machine using water in your home. It also with the laundry, dishes and glassware, your skin and your hair.
Step 3: 8 GPM UV sterilizer. The use of ultraviolet light to kill any water born microorganism’s bacteria or viruses such as coloform, e.coli, cryptosporidium, or giardia.
Step 4 : Reverse Osmosis drinking water system: Offering a impressive 75 galoon per day output you can be assured that you will be drinking the best water possible.
