‘Green Touch’ to make Hard Water as soft as the morning Dew

Hard water can have adverse affects in various ways. Not only does it take away the taste of fresh fruits and vegetables when they are washed & cooked, hard water also reduce the lifespan of expensive household appliances like geysers, washing machines, dishwashers etc. Hard water increases the consumption of gas, increasing utility bills manifold. It leads too blockages in the piping system, thereby reducing water pressure because of corrosion and rust accumulation and increased bacteria in the drinking water. Life expectancy of cloths is reduced when washed with hard water. It also dulls surfaces in bathrooms and kitchens, leading to higher cleaning costs which require aggressive cleaning chemicals and increased labor. Hard water also has adverse effects on health and could cause skin damage and hair loss.

“Hard” water has high levels of dissolved calcium and/ or magnesium minerals. These minerals may occur in ground water passing through limestone, or other rocks with a calcium mineral content. As water evaporates, these minerals harden themselves as mineral deposits, also known as scale. The level of hardness is related to the amount of dissolved mineral in the water.
There are proven solutions soften headwater. It can be corrected by the use of a water softener/conditioner. The water passes through a tank containing resin beads holding “soft” sodium ions. The “hard” calcium and magnesium ions are then exchanged for sodium ions, thus softening the water.

The water that enters the house is filtered through the zeolite minerals. A reaction occurs during the treatment process which replaces the magnesium and calcium ions to be replaced by sodium. The minerals containing zeolite require change on a periodic basis. This system includes a large tank where the bags of softener salts are regularly added. Chemical method is the most inexpensive way of treating hard water. Two chemicals used in the water treatment are Sal soda and Calgon.
Ion Exchange a global leader in providing safe water has one of the best solutions to treat hard water. The Zero B series of Water Softeners incorporate the proven technique of counter flow regeneration which has been pioneered by Ion Exchange. This technique is ideally suited to treat water with high hardness. The flow of water and the flow of brine (Salt Solution), which is used for regeneration, are opposite to each other during operation.

Zero B New Generation Softeners Series are compact, manually & automatically operated units that are easily and quickly installed. Zero B Softenizer Unit consists of a tank containing Ion Exchange Resin Media, which removes hardness from water to acceptable level. The hard water passes through this sodium-rich ION Exchange Resin. The media exchanges minerals that cause hardness like calcium (CA) and magnesium (Mg) for sodium. This results in the softness of water that comes out from the outlet. After continuous usage, the resins get saturated with minerals and have to be replaced using Zero B Palletized Salt.

The Zero B New Generation Softeners Series can be used for water treatment in housing societies, hotels, shopping malls, hospitals and corporate parks.

Stay Hydrated this Winter

dec-blog-04In winter as the temperature begins to drop, the air starts becoming drier. Due to this our bodies too show signs of de-hydration with roughness of the skin, dry cough, chapped lips, etc. Our intake of water during winter also falls appreciaably as we dont experience the kind of thirst that we do in summer or other seasons of the year.

70% of our body is made up of water and thus require a good amount of hydration anytime, any season. But during winters as we tend to get less thirsty we tend to feed our body with less water than during other seasons.

When we keep our bodies well hydrated, our appetites are more regulated. But, in case we are not drinking enough fluids, our metabolic functions get affected resulting in our inability to assimilate fat. This in turn prevents us from recognizing thirst, believing it to be hunger and leading us to eat more than its needed.

The amount of water one should drink varies from person to person. Factors such as our weight, activity level, gender and age needs to be taken into account before arriving at the ideal water intake level.

For people leaading a sedentary life 6-8 glasses per day is good enugh but if someone is indulging in physical activities one needs to drink 8-12 glasses of water per day

At times it can be difficult for us to keep up with the water intake levels in winter weather as we really dont feel the urge to drink. In such cases water-based foods – can act as a natural source of water while also providing rich vitamins and minerals. Some of these food include watermelons, apples, grapes and cucumber are a few fruits which can help up the water levels in our body.

Leaving on a vacation?.. Here a few precautions to be taken if you have a RO Purifier at home

If your RO Purifier is not exposed to water at freezing point, you can just turn off the water supply to the purifier and drain all water from the tank before you leave.

When you come back from vacation, simply turn on the water supply and drain off the first tank-full of water. Once this is done, water will be fresh and ready for consumption from the 2nd fill onwards

However in case you experience freezing temperature at your home during these times then you should turn off the water supply to the system, empty the storage tank, and remove the pre-filters as well.

In such a case you need to drain all water from all the pre-filter housings. If the pre-filters are dirty, discard filters and use new filters when the RO purifier is put back into operation.

If filters are still reusable, put them in zip bags and store them in your refrigerator’s compartment which is normally meant to store vegetables but never inside the freezer

At last remove the RO membrane from its housing and store membrane filter in the sane compartment of your refrigerator within a zip bag. Care needs to be taken to drain out all water out from the membrane housing and screw all housings back onto the water purifier.

Once back home, the pre-filters need to be put back to their designated housings and care should be taken to flush out the first tank of water before the water from the RO Purifier becomes ready and safe for consumption

IS RO WATER ACIDIC AND NOT GOOD FOR HEALTH ?

Some people are of the opinion that Water from an RO Water Purifier is Acidic and hence unsafe and not good for health. This is not correct. Water from an RO water purifier is the best water to drink.

The fact is, though carbonic acid gets generated to some extent in the initial stages of purification, the special cartridges, containing alkali chemicals. that are used in the later stages of purification in an RO Purifier helps in removing all traces acid from water.

Moreover, its important to note here that the Carbonic Acid that gets generated during the RO purification process is the same as the one that is present in aerated drinks we consume but in far lesser concentration. The final output water from the tap of the RO Water Purifier does not contain traces of carbolic acid as the acid gets neutralised by the alkaline cartridge before flowing out of the Water Purifier. It is worthwhile to also mention here that our stomach has far more stronger acid in the form of Hydrochloric Acid compared to the Carbonic acid that gets generated during the RO Purification Process.

All RO water purifiers also have pre-filters which help in removing dissolved chemicals and chlorine from water before the water flows through the RO membrane. The RO membrane filter out organic molecules of pesticides, herbicides and VOC’s.

For most of us having safe water means consuming water that is free from germs and viruses to prevent us from diseases like Cholera, Typhoid, Dysentery, etc. Though these are serious ailments but modern day medicines can easily cure these ailments. Also just by boiling the water one can make sure that water is free from such germs.

But much more dangerous than microbiological impurities are the impurities present in the form of dissolved chemicals, especially the salts of Heavy Metals like Arsenic, Chromium-6, Lead, Mercury, etc. which can cause lifelong damage and early death. We may not even know that we are being slowly poisoned due to heavy metal contamination, because there appears no difference in taste or smell of water. These can only be detected by chemical analysis of water.

The Heavy Metal in water tend to ‘bio-accumulate’ in our body, which means that once heavy metal is absorbed, our body cannot get rid of it. So even though there are no immediate problems the heavy metals in our body keeps on accumulating as more and more water gets consumed by us. Finally Heavy Metal poisoning symptoms start showing up. By then it usually becomes too late. Heavy metals in water causes life threatening diseases like cancer can cause nerve damage, stunted growth in children and also early death. Children suffer most from heavy metal pollution of water. Boiling the water does not remove dissolved heavy metals from water.

So how can we be absolutely safe from being poisoned by heavy metal in drinking water. The answer is to use a Reverse Osmosis or RO water filter purifier.

Only an RO Water Purifier can remove heavy metal and other dissolved salts present in water while also removing bacteria and viruses present in water to provide almost distilled quality water.

Is the water you drink at home safe enough for your children?

blog-image-dec-01For most people living in metropolitan areas in India, the primary source of drinking water is the Tanker Water. The tankers are primarily fed with water from private wells. These private wells are not at all regulated and hence the safety of this water may be compromised due to some of the following reasons:

– Where the well is located
– How well it is being maintained
– Quality of the aquifer supplying the well
– Environmental conditions in the close proximity of the well

Hence the well water needs to be treated before being completely safe and fit for consumption.

Apart from contamination of water at the source, the tap water can also get contaminated due to leakages in the pipeline.

The lead used in manuufacturing of these pipes contaminates the water passing through it.

How this contaminated water effects you and your children’s health depends upon the type and concenntration of contaminants present in water.

Here are some of the contaminants that are generally found in tap and well water and their affect on the children:

1. Cryptosporidium, a pathogen that can at times cause fatal gastrointestinal disease.

2. Nitrates can contaminate water and pose a great threat to infants and small children. The nitrates get converted into nitrites that prevent blood from transporting oxygen. This affects the infants and small chldren more as older children develops an enzyme in their system that helps restore blood’s ability to carry oxygen.

3. Thirdly the presence of Lead in water can cause both physical and mental developmental problems in infants and children. Adults who have been drinking lead-tainted water for a number of years can experience kidney problems and high blood pressure.

So we need to ensure that the water that is being drank at home is free from these contaminants.

Now the question is how do we ensure this?

Boiling of water can only take care of some types of pathogens present in water but the water will still be unsafe for drinking as the contaminants like lead, nitrates, and pesticides do not get eliminated in the course of boiling. On the contrary boiling reduces the volume of water and increases the concentration of those contaminants rendering the water more unsafe.

So the only effective way of making the water free from contaminats is by using an advanced water purifier – A water purifier that can remove physical, chemical, biological impurities and also the salts of heavy metals and make it safe and fit for your family.

Why RO Purifiers are considered better than UF Purifiers?

To understand how RO Purifiers score over UF Purifiers we need to delve slightly into the purification process of both these purifiers.

Lets start with the RO Purifiers first.

In RO Purifiers purification happens following a process of Reverse Osmosis. To understand the process of Reverse Osmosis, let us take a closer look at the Osmosis process. Osmosis is a process in which water molecules flow across a semi permeable membrane – from a region of lower solute strength to a region of higher solute strength. The solute strength in this case refers to the TDS (Total Dissolved & Suspended Impurities) level of water. The water thus in an Osmosis process moves from across the membrane from a region of lower TDS level to the region of higher TDS level

In the RO process the Opposite happens. Hence the name Reverse Osmosis. In this process water is forced to move from a region of higher solute concentration to the region of lower solute concentration. This is achieved by pumping water at a higher pressure inside the RO Chamber causing water molecules to be flow through the membrane to the other side leaving behind dissolved solids and other impurities. The impurities that are left behind are drained out through another outlet. The water that passes through the semi permeable membrane in the RO Purifier has a much lesser concentration of TDS than the original inlet water.

So, when the water has high TDS and is Hard, RO Purification is the most effective

Since the water needs to be pumped at a high pressure to help it pass across the membrane, RO Purifiers will need electricity to perform this task. Hence the RO Purifiers cannot operate without electricity

In an UF or Ultra filtration Purifier, a semi permeable membrane like in case of RO Purifier is used but the holes in the UF Purifier are much larger compared to the holes in the RO purifier and as a result water passes through the UF Filter using the force gravity and without any additional applied pressure. Thus UF Filters work without electricity and should be considered for use where the TDS level of water is low and the water is not Hard
