    Reverse Osmosis Purification Process

    How to remove salinity inside water?
    How to make salt water drinkable?
    Can we remove salinity of water?
    What does the RO process look like?
    How does refining work in RO?

    Reverse osmosis purification process is best suited to remove salinity of water. This technology is also used in reducing chemical contaminants like flouride, sodium, total dissolved solids (TDS) or chemicals like arsenic, radium, nitrates present in water.

    That is why Reverse osmosis technology has the reputation of being the ultimate in water purification and is prepared to treat a wide variety of water sources including sea water and water contaminated with chemical, biological and even radioactive contaminants

    Reverse Osmosis water filters helps in reducing a wide variety of contaminants such as dissolved salts, Lead, Mercury, Calcium, Iron, Asbestos and Cysts by using a mechanical barrier that is more than suitable for the reduction of biological contaminants such as protozoan cysts, bacteria and viruses.

    How does water purifier reduce wastage?
    Is Zero B eco friendly?
    Are the extraction methods of water cheap?
    What are some eco friendly features of water purifier?

    In spite of the fact that majority of our planet is made up of water, water scarcity, wastage and water pollution continues to be the biggest problems faced by us.

    Our planet has an acute shortage of clean and usable water since most of the water bodies are polluted due to improper domestic and industrial waste disposal mechanism. Moreover the methods of extraction of water and its purification are also expensive.

    In such a situation, it becomes highly important for us to look for ways in which we can not only conserve water but also manage it well.

    As an environmentally conscious citizen its our duty to help reduce our carbon footprint by using environmentally friendly gadgets and appliance that help lessen wastage of natural resource.
    Like when

    installing a water purifier we need to look at eco-friendly features like those which help reduce wastage of water.

    One such appliance that can help reduce wastage of water while purifying it is the Zero B Eco-friendly Water Purifier which helps in reducing water wastage by 80% compared to any conventional RO Water Purifier

    Water Pollution in Maharashtra

    What are the facts about the water pollution in Maharashtra?
    Does Krishna river have sugar plants?
    Are the rivers near Maharashtra affected by effluents?
    Do industrial areas have water purifiers?

    Surface water of Maharashtra is polluted by industrial effluents, agro-chemicals, domestic and sewerage dirt, oil spillage and sediment. Industries throw toxic waste to water thus contaminating it.

    The Krishna river which runs through Sangli, Solapur, Satara, Kolhapur and Ahemdnagar has large number of sugar plants. These sugar plants consume large quantities of water for their operation and at the same time dispose a lot of untreated waste water into nearby rivers.

    Similarly majority of the other rivers of Maharashtra like the Godavari, Bhima and Wardha-Wainganga are affected by industrial effluents from adjoining industrial belts.

    Do industrial areas have water purifiers?
    The industrial areas in Maharashtra with food processing, chemicals and heavy metal processing industries, are situated in the midst of densely populated region and hence it becomes all the more necessary for people staying in these areas to use water purifiers which are capable of removing harmful chemicals, heavy metals and microbiological impurities that can be present in the water of these regions.

    Ground Water Contamination by Septoc Tanks

    How are septic tanks contaminating water?
    Does septic tank contaminate water?
    What are the harmful effects of septic water tanks?
    Where does the percolation happen in septic tanks?
    How does the process of septic tanks work?

    Bore well Water is getting increasingly contaminated due to high level of pollutants being found in ground water. Ground water sources gets polluted due to overflowing sewage, septic tanks, leaking sewer lines and untreated waste water. Sewage which is a complex mixture contains many types of contaminants in the form of bacteria, nitrates, heavy metals, toxic materials and salts.

    Sewage overflow leads to ingestion of microorganisms like E coli, Giardia, Cryptosporidium, Hepatitis A, etc

    Underground septic tanks happen to contaminate water reservoirs. Large portions of the population here uses a septic tanks.

    Contamination of water from septic tanks occurs under various conditions:

    Treatment of waste in septic tanks occurs by bacterial decomposition.

    Poor placement of septic leach fields can result in partially treated waste water percolating into a drinking water source. Leach fields consists of an area where waste water after treatment percolates through soil as part of the treatment process.

    Badly constructed percolation systems may allow water to escape without proper treatment.

    The septic system may fail due to clogging resulting in overflowing to land or surface water.

    Due to the density of population in our country, a high density placement of tanks, can result in localities containing very high concentrations of waste water. This water may run-off into surface water or flow directly into the water table thus contaminating the Ground water sources.

    Hence it is essential to purify the bore well water properly – freeing it from different types of contaminants.

    Storage Tank Causing Water Contamination

    Does storage tank contaminate water?
    Is storage tank harmful?
    Is water harmful inside storage tank?
    Do people have overhead tanks in houses?
    How to clean storage tanks?

    In any municipal water distribution system, the water is first chlorinated and pumped into large reservoirs. From these reservoirs it is pumped into overhead tanks of various localities.

    These overhead tanks supply water to the consumers

    Consumers usually have overhead tanks in their houses or societies to store water. As a result, the water happens to pass through three to four levels of storage before it reaches the tap of the consumer.

    If we do not take precautions, water can get contaminated at each stage of storage.

    The storage tanks thus needs to be cleaned frequently with bleaching powder to check accumulation of sediment and slime.

    No sunlight should be permitted to enter the tanks as in the presence of sediment and sunlight, algae grows vigorously. This promotes the growth of harmful bacteria. To block sunlight from entering the overhead tanks, black plastic sheets can be used to cover the lids of the over head tanks to prevent water from entering

    Diseases such as hypertension, gastritis, ulcers, hepatitis A and E, inflammation of the gall bladder, osteoporosis, goiter and nephritis are becoming very common in urban households in India. Even young adults are getting affected by this pretty easily.

    Have we ever wondered what could be a possible reason for all these?

    Apart from a sedentary lifestyle and the quality of food that we consume, a major cause of some of these diseases could be hidden in the water we drink or may be due to the purifiers or filters that we use to purify our water for drinking purpose.

    Majority of these purifiers are incapable to remove the chemicals, pathogens and heavy metals present in water and so we are left with water that looks fresh and clean but is technically impure and can have adverse health effects.

    So before going ahead and buying a water purifier it is important for you to do the following:
    1. Get your water tested to ascertain what type of purifier is right or you
