Taking the bad stuff out and putting the good stuff in
A typical Pure Water People Purification and Filtration system provides you with luxuriously treated water around the home and
98-99% pure water at the kitchen sink for all your drinking and cooking needs. Here we provide a brief description of the individual stages of this process.
Read on to find out more - if you have any further questions, we always have someone from our
technical department on hand to help you out, so don't hesitate to get in touch!
The water provided by your water purification system is filtered using a multi-stage, multi-media process as follows:
Highly efficient Pre-Filtration Unit that removes all of the larger particles of sediment, dirt and heavy metals.
Dedicated ‘C/C’ Unit that removes most of the harmful organic and inorganic compounds that make up most pesticides. Industrial solvents (halogenated hydrocarbons), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are also totally removed or made harmless.
Chlorine and chloramines are removed together with the Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) e.g. benzene, trichloroethylene, trihalomethanes (THMs) and methyl tertiary-butyl ether etc.
Computerised demand-initiated Ion-Exchange Unit – This unit removes all of the calcium and magnesium hardness-causing cation particles in your water supply, as well as a host of other problematical cations that may be present in certain water supplies, utilising the finest cation-exchange resin on the market today.
The conditioned water from these three Stages goes to your bath, shower, household taps, washing machine and dishwasher for general everyday use. The water from Stage 3 now continues on its purification cycle to Stages 4 to 8 to produce probably the purest Drinking & Cooking water on the market today.
Dedicated ‘C/C’ Filter removes any remaining low-level Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s).
Ultra-Fine Membrane removes or significantly reduces pathogenic bacteria and parasites plus most of the following compounds:- aluminium, arsenic, barium, cadmium, chloride, copper, fluoride, manganese, selenium, silver, sodium, sulphate, zinc, nitrate, soluble particulates, dissolved solids and radium.
Drinking Water Post-filtration Unit that removes any remaining tastes and odours.
Dual Media Filter, comprising of calcium and magnesium compounds. These put the naturally-occurring electrolytes of calcium, that are essential to health and wellbeing, back into your drinking water.
It you're technically minded you may be wondering what the 'flow rates' of our systems are. Often you will see this figure quoted on the specification of a basic softener, however we want to be totally clear and transparent with our customers and this is not neccessarily an accurate figure. There are many factors that affect this, for example a softening unit may have a specified flow rate, but is then connected using a flexible hose with a lower capacity, so you can see on its own a flow rate figure for one component does not give you a clear picture.
It is most likely that any system quoting a flow rate will be showing a figure below that of your incoming water supply, otherwise why quote it?
We don't show flow rates, because quite simply our systems do not reduce the flow of water into your home, which makes our systems perfect for homes with multiple bathrooms.
Over time, our systems actually improve your flow rate where you may have had limescale built up inside your plumbing, as eliminating this increases the aperture size of the pipe allowing more water to flow through.
