Flirting with another disaster: Puerto Ricans tap into potentially unsafe water.

According to this recent article, ( http://www.cnn.com/2017/10/16/americas/puerto-rico-superfund-water/index.html) by CNN Puerto Rico residents are tapping into water that does not currently meet the EPA safe water act guidelines and in some cases they are actually drinking water from contaminated sites that contain heavy metals. One complete solution although you need electricity but if you have it or have a generator to run a PURA UV system you can both filter and disinfect the water coming into your home or building. Add an undersink RO system, ( Reverse Osmosis Systems) and you will also be taking out additional contaminants  including, (metal ions sodiumchloridecopperchromiumlead, arsenicfluorideradiumsulfatecalciummagnesiumpotassiumnitrate, and phosphorous.

PURA UV

 The UV BigBoy™ Series is the most versatile commercial ultraviolet disinfection system on the market today. This 15 to 60 GPM series is manufactured with versatility in mind, and is virtually unlimited in the possible filter configurations and manifold sequences. The series is designed with the same traditional style that Pura® has made an industry standard – worldwide. One advantage of the UV BigBoy™ Series is the convenient manifold mounting rack. The rack can be used to configure up to four UV chambers in parallel or in series. This allows the user to achieve either a higher UV dosage or higher flow rate (up to 60 GPM). This mounting rack configuration provides easaccess for cleaning and maintenance to the individual units without the need to shut down the entire water distribution line. The standard LED lamp monitor provides a visual verification the lamp is in operation. The UV BigBoy™ Series, with its capacity, versatility and cost, is the world’s most flexible, complete water disinfection system in its class.

qcro-cutawayThe first stage of filtration is the sediment filter, which reduces suspended particles such as dirt, dust, and rust. The second stage of filtration is the carbon filter. This filter reduces volatile organic chemicals (VOCs), chlorine, and other compounds that might impact the taste or odor of the tap water. Chlorine should be removed from the water before the water enters the membrane. This will help preserve the life of the membrane. The center and third stage of a reverse osmosis system is the semi-permeable (RO) membrane.It is responsible for rejecting up to 98% of the total dissolved solids in the water.
