How to Remove Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in Tap Water

Removing Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in Tap Water

Most people are aware of Volatile Organic Chemicals (VOCs) because they are frequently discussed when selecting paint for their home, but many don't realize that they can contaminate drinking water supplies. This blog discusses VOCs as they pertain to drinking water and water used for indoor gardening/hydroponic applications, and provides information on filtration products available to reduce VOCs in municipal water supplies and well water.

How CO2 Can Impact Di Resin Consumption

If you use DI resin to make 0 TDS water, you may have read about various factors that impact deionization resin life. One of the most common reasons for reduced DI cartridge life is high carbon dioxide (CO2) content in low pH (acidic) water. CO2 levels in low pH water like well water can be as high 50-100 ppm. Since carbon dioxide is a small dissolved gaseous molecule it passes right through the reverse osmosis membrane and into your DI cartridge. Carbon dioxide is usually weakly ionized and not detected easily by conductivity meters, so it impacts the anion-exchange process in the deionization cartridge significantly, thereby reducing its expected life. Therefore, CO2 removal from RO product water will significantly increase the usable life of a deionization cartridge.

What's In Your Water? How To Remove Chloramine With Your Reverse Osmosis System

What's In Your Water? How To Remove Chloramine With Your Reverse Osmosis System

Chloramine is quickly becoming a concern for an increasing number of aquarium hobbyists because more and more municipalities are using chloramine to sanitize local water supplies. According to the EPA, more than 1-in-5 U.S. households use water treated with chloramine. If not removed, chloramine can get into your aquarium and have serious negative effects, ranging from excessive algae growth to the deterioration and death of fish and corals.

 

Is Reverse Osmosis Wasteful? Understanding RO Wastewater

 

Is Reverse Osmosis Wasteful? No. Here's Why.

"I had no idea a RO unit wastes so much water and I want to be conserving our water resources". That is something we hear quite frequently. We completely understand wanting to conserve our natural resources, but often that same customer was driving several miles and back to get bottled water for their aquarium, which was probably made by reverse osmosis too, all the while wasting precious fossil fuels and polluting our air. That may seem a bit extreme to say, so let's see if we can put it into better perspective for you. Please read on...
