a separate tap is not required.

 

Water flows up to 8 litres per minute are
acceptable with a small UV system.

Kitchen Setup 01

 

 

 

 Ceramic Filter

 

       
 

A ceramic filter can be used in either a bench top or under sink filter housing. 

 

It combines activated carbon for the removal of chemicals with an absolute 0.4 micron ceramic cartridge, which is so fine bacteria will not pass through it.

 

As the cartridge blocks up with sediment, the cartridge is cleaned by scraping the sides of the ceramic part with a knife or flat tool to remove the outer layer of ceramic material. This can be done several times. 

 

If there is a lot of sediment in the supply water, a pre filter may be required to enhance the life of the ceramic filter. 

 

A minimum of 40 PSI ( 280 KPA ) water pressure is required to allow the water to pass through the cartridge.

 Water Distillation

 

       
 

Very effective at providing pure water no matter what the quality of the incoming supply is. 

 

Water is boiled - the steam collected - then condensates back to water again. All contaminants are left in the boiling chamber.

 

Distillers do require some planning and patience as the water is slow to process ( between 5 & 7 hours depending on the starting temperature of the water ).

Notes On Rural Water Quality

 

 

  To Purify Roof Water We Need To Consider The Following:

 

  1. Removal of leaf material from gutters so water entering the tank is as clean as possible.

  2. Having mesh around any holes into the tank to prevent animals entering the tank.

  3. Final filtration and / or purification of the water. 

    Tank water can be reasonably clean, but in practice it often contains traces of pesticides and herbicides from agricultural sprays as well as dirt and sediment from material washed off the roof.

    Giardia & Cryptosporidium cysts can also be deposited on the roof by birds, cats and possums. If organic material such as leaves and bird manure enter the tank then we have the added problem of both general and faecal bacterial growth inside the tank.

 

 

  The General Principles Of Rural Water Treatment

 

  • Organic Material & Sediment: Filter using one or more filter housings and cartridges to remove the solid material. Strainers are available to remove large particles and cartridges are available to remove material from over one millimeter right down to one micron. ( The smallest particle we can visually see with the eye is around 20 microns ).

  • Chemicals: Removed by using a filter with Activated Carbon.

  • Giardia & Cryptosporidium: Must be filtered using a one micron mesh filter. Giardia is resistant to chemicals and most UV light frequencies so must be filtered.

  • Bacteria: Depending on the situation this can be controlled by either regular dosing of the water with 'HydroPure' ( a safe liquid disinfectant ) to kill bacteria or by using ultraviolet light. There is also a purification cartridge which can be used at a point of use situation ( typically the kitchen sink ) to purify and remove bacteria. An ultra violet light system is the most convenient method in most cases.

Summary

 

As you can see, there are many options for you to consider, depending on your personal requirements.

 

Any variation can be achieved by determining what water supplies need to be purified and to what extent. eg. Do you require bath water to be clean for young children to safely use or do you only require drinking water to be purified?

 

The above recommendations are only common samples and we are able to supply any solution to any problem, which may even involve a combination of the above options. 

 

Please feel free to call me to discuss your individual requirements. I am also happy to visit you on site to show you the products and review the practical options.
