A couple years ago, a luxury hotel had attempted to filter their entire water supply. Their desire was to provide their guest with the best experience possible. While with good intentions this also gave way to some negative consequences. Understanding what to remove and what to leave in your water supply can affect not just the taste and odor of the water, but the safety of the water as well. This particular facility had wanted to remove all the chlorine from their incoming water supply and made the decision to utilize a whole building system to do so. The side effect of removing all antibacterial properties in a large water system is the introduction of bacterial growth after the point of entry system. This bacteria growth will occur in the piping after the filtration system and will cause exposure to the user’s downstream. What Filter Pure would have recommended was utilizing a mechanical filtered system with Ultraviolet at the point of entry. This would eliminate any possible contaminants entry into the building water supply. It also maintains the appropriate levels of disinfectant to ensure pipes are not permitting bacterial growth. For taste and odor concern, these should always be handled at the point of use with a system similar to the Insurice Single PF-i2000 system (EV9324-21). We recommend Everpure for all water point of use systems. Every location has different water quality concerns that require direct and special attention. If you have any questions regarding your facility’s water filtration systems, please contact me, Todd Leach, or our customer service team at 1-800-942-7873. Ask me a questions!
Do you ever get confused about all the different types of water filtration systems and which one you should use? Well don’t worry. We can help eliminate some of that confusion. Here are some things you should know to help you understand more about water filtration. There are essentially only two principle locations for installing water treatment systems. Which of the two systems you need depends upon what you hope to accomplish. One is Point-of-Entry water treatment (POE), the other is Point-of-Use water treatment (POU). What’s the difference? Picture the water supply where your local municipality or other supplier delivers water to your house, office building, factory, plant or other facility. At the point where the supply enters the building, it’s connected to a water meter. Your side of the meter is your responsibility and expense. You might be stuck with the water as delivered, but you don’t have to like it or settle for its quality (or lack of quality). There are a lot of POE and POU systems that can help you improve the quality of water before you drink it, cook with it or bathe with it. A Point-of-Entry water treatment system is installed on your side of the meter with the express purpose of treating all of the incoming water before it goes into the individual supply lines that feed your laundry, bathrooms (including toilets), dedicated outside faucets and others as well as your kitchen. POE systems often include softeners, large bed carbon filters, and some systems which are specifically designed to remove (or trap) sediment, foul tastes and odors. POE systems are sometimes considered pre-filters. A Point-of-Use water treatment system is installed in an individual source line ahead of any or all of the building’s taps, faucets or other dedicated outlets used to dispense water for drinking, cooking or bathing. Good POU systems are often expected to capture whatever escapes the POE system.

The Everpure Claris Flow Meter is an Everpure Claris water filter monitor system that was developed to monitor the usage rate of the Claris water filter system. The Claris Flow Meter is used to determine the best cartridge replacement interval for a person’s Claris water filter system by continually measuring the filtrate volume and then calculating the remaining filtration capacity. The Claris flow sensor provides several pieces of information to the user. First, the Claris flow sensor will alert a user when it is time to change the filter cartridge. The Claris Flowmeter will also inform the user of the residual capacity of the installed filter cartridge and the total filtrate volume since the Claris filter monitoring system was installed. Finally, the Everpure Claris flowmeter will inform users of the filtrate volume of the previous five installed filter cartridges and the operation time of the previous five installed filter cartridges.
The Everpure Claris water filter monitor system has several specifications that make it one of the best filter monitoring products on the market. The sensor unit has an operating pressure of 2 to 8 bars and a flow rate of 10 to 100. The Claris Flowmeter has a water temperature range of 39 to 86 degree Fahrenheit and an ambient temperature range of 39 degrees to 104 degrees Fahrenheit. The Everpure Claris filter monitor uses a 3/8“ BSP F nut for an in connection and a 3/8“ BSP M for an out connection. The Claris Flow Sensor has dimensions of 3.15″ x 1.81″ x 1.69″ and a horizontal installation is recommended.
To install the Claris flow sensor system, a person should first decide if they are mounting the product to the wall. In order to mount the system to the wall, a person should first make sure the device is securely mounted and then screw it into place. Once meter is placed, the user must make sure that its shut off valve is installed upstream of the filter. Upon installation, purchasers should review the Installation, Operation & Maintenance Manual for programming and startup information.
Pentair Incorporated, one of FilterPure Systems leading brands has shown record growth over the last 52 weeks and during the first financial quarter 2011. Driven by sales growth in emerging markets as well as across Europe and the United States, Pentair reported $790 million in first quarter sales, improving company financials and prospects for future growth. “The first quarter was a great start to the year, with 12 percent organic revenue growth, meaningful margin expansion and excellent earnings growth. Our investments are yielding positive results, particularly evident in our geographic expansion, strong innovation and productivity gains,” said Randall J. Hogan, Pentair chairman and chief executive officer. Hogan added “Strong demand in the industrial end markets continued, along with rapid growth in fast growth markets, led by China where sales were up 26 percent. While the U.S. residential end market continues its modest recovery, demand for our energy-efficient and sustainable product offerings remains solid.” Pentair and investors alike are taking these improvements to be a positive signal for the future. While the company is banking on its hefty Q1 sales figures and growth in working capital to push free cash flow north of $240 million for the whole of 2011, investors are fixated on the firm’s 18.3 P/E ratio, a healthy margin below the industry average of 19.9, making Pentair the obvious immediate choice when considering the addition of water or technical products to the portfolio. Additionally, Pentair offered a 2.1% dividend yield, adding further allure to their present stock. The future looks bright as well. According to Hogan, Pentair’s plans for the remainder of the fiscal year include margin expansion, as well as “pricing and productivity [that] more than offset inflation.” Further bolstering Pentair’s outlook is the recently announced acquisition by the firm of Norit’s Clean Process Technologies, the 2011 winner of the Global Water Summit’s “Water Technology Company of the Year” award.
Depending on where you live, your drinking water may need some type of filtration, but which is right for you? Do you need a water filter or a water softener? What if you need both? How do you know which one is right for you? Well, to answer these questions, let’s take a look at what water filters and water softeners do, then you can decide on the best solution for you and your family’s water filtration needs:
So, what exactly does a water softener do and why do you need it? Well, simply, they soften hard water. Hard water is full of minerals and deposits such as calcium and magnesium. Although no harm will come to you from hard water, it’s nightmare for cleaning showers, tubs and causes problems for pipes and plumbing fixtures. By using a water softener, you will break down the hardness or materials in the water. Different softeners use different methods including: ion, electrical and magnetics. It’s best to get your water tested to find out for sure, if you have hard water. Then decide on what method works best for you.
Without purifying our drinking water, you could consume things that contribute to disease and illness. To prevent this, most water treatment facilities employ chemicals such as chlorine to treat the water. This, however, introduces new problems for us. I mean, you would you want to drink something that resembles the water in a swimming pool? I didn’t think so. So counter this, there’s water filters. Basically, water filters take out all the bad things in your water like the chlorine and other chemicals – leaving you with clean tasting and smelling drinking water. The most common filter is a carbon-based filter – it can remove the majority of chemicals in your water.
What’s Best For Your Water?
For many a water filter is all they will ever need. For others, a water softener plus water filter is a requirement. Remember how we said to test your water? Well, if you find out you have hard water, it’s best to get yourself a combination filter and softener to clean out the impurities in your drinking water. Otherwise, stick with a single water filter for your water purification needs.
It is estimated that from 1990 to 2006, global bottled water sales (that is, sales of water ranging from “PET” single-serving bottles to larger water cooler “carboys”) more than quadrupled, topping $61 billion. Since then, profits have been on the rise, totaling a 51% increase in the past 5 years. Along with this massive industry goes massive pollution. Though technically recyclable, the vast majority of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) water bottles are disposed of improperly, and thus, will not be reused, contributing to the growing problem of landfill accumulation. As the bottled water industry grows, so does our global pollution epidemic. All is not lost, however. Recognizing this looming danger, several companies, including Seychelle Water Filtration Products, have stepped up to the plate. As a worldwide leader in the development, manufacture and sale of a proprietary filtration system for portable water bottles, Seychelle has their sights set on ending global abuse of natural resources for a single serving of water. It seems as if the idea is catching on as well. In the last five fiscal quarters, Seychelle has experienced marked growth.
“We are seeing growing demand for some of our newer products such as our stainless steel bottles, straws and pure water bags and pumps,”
said Seychelle President and CEO Carl Palmer,
“All of these have been redesigned to improve performance and enhance consumer appeal and are being widely used in problem drinking water areas in many different markets of the world.”
In fact, over the past few weeks, Seychelle has received several orders representing over $1 million in new business. With Seychelle’s products, and those from companies like it, the world can put an end to its dependency on plastic. No matter where you are, or what water source happens to be close by – a river, a lake, a pond, and yes, a tap, you can rest assured that you’ll have the clean water you need, without the pollution the earth doesn’t.
Over 1.2 billion people around the globe don’t have access to potable water. Many of them live in the continent of Africa. So it should come as no surprise that a solution to this problem might come from an inventor who lives there. Meet Dr. Eugene Cloete. A microbiologist by training, Cloete is currently the Dean of Natural Sciences at the University of Stellenbosch, just outside Cape Town, South Africa. In addition to his teaching ability, Dr. Cloete apparently has a knack for invention. With nine patents to his name, the first of which he earned at the age of 23, Eugene has adopted a way of thinking different than that of most peoples’. “[creativity is] like reading and writing,” said Cloete, “the more you use it, the better you get.” With much of South Africa’s tap water riddled with disease-causing bacteria, heavy metals, and pesticide residue, something needed to be done. In short, Dr. Cloete has invented a disposable filter, which looks very similar to a tea bag, to filter water as it is poured from a bottle. Each filter is capable of ridding bacteria, heavy metals, and harmful chemicals from about 15 liters of water before it needs to be thrown away. Cloete, an expert on inhibiting growth of bacterial slime, says he came up with the idea while on a faculty tour of his current department. He happened to notice a tea bag sitting on the break room counter when he started to explore the idea. It wasn’t until he watched a presentation at the university during which a student demonstrated how to spin nanofibers – filaments finer than human hair – that he figured out how to do it. He combined this technology with both that of the anti-bacterial membranes he had already been working on, and the traditional water filtration component activated carbon to yield the filter. Since announcing the invention in July, Dr. Cloete and his team of two post-doctoral colleges have received hundreds of inquiries from excited philanthropists, aid organizations, and retailers. This little tea bag is sure to save lives.
