Borehole Filter System
Why use Borehole Filter System’s with rising costs of municipally treated water many people are turning to wells, springs and boreholes for their household water supply for a more cost-effective solution.
Much of the time the water is of good quality and being chlorine free, pleasant to taste. In other cases, there can be problems, including staining, corrosion, murky unpleasant appearance, harmful bacteria and other problems. Borehole Companies manufacture a range well water treatment systems & borehole filter systems to ensure the high quality of your private water supply.
Treatment of private water supplies can be complex and not always rectified by what may seem the most obvious answer. The suitable borehole filter system will vary according to levels of contaminants present, and the amount of water used.
Borehole Companies recommend that you obtain a water quality test report for your supply, which will help identify any issues that are essential to deal with and those you may wish to improve. Look for water testing services in your local directory or contact your local council for information.
The most commonly treated problems are the following through borehole filter systems:
- Low pH level (acidic water)
- High Iron and Manganese Levels
Borehole Companies offer a complete service in borehole drilling, from water borehole prognosis to monitoring boreholes after their completion. As with all their drilling services, they offer a national coverage. They also drill to various depths and sizes to meet South Africa’s guidelines.
As a minimum standard, boreholes should be fitted with borehole filter systems with an Ultra Violet filter. This borehole filter system eliminates any bacteria that may be present in the borehole water. With the UV filter, additional water well filtration may be required to ensure that the borehole water meets national drinking water standards. Water boreholes must provide safe and clean water for drinking.
Borehole Water can be an effective way of gaining water for both industrial and domestic use, but treatment of some kind is both desirable and often essential for safety and clean looking water.
Water from a borehole can hold both the good and the bad from the neighbourhood surrounding it. A borehole through rock is likely to be clear to the sight and the rock can act as a filter. Water passing through clay, coal or even disused mines may contain contaminants which may make the water look contaminated.
