Whether your tap water comes from the city or a well, it is guaranteed to contain some levels of pollution from inorganic minerals to man-made chemicals and by-products. Many of these contaminants can have a negative effect on your health and quality of life, but fortunately they can be treated by a home water purification system.
As the quality of water is directly linked to the quality of life, good quality water supply can mean an improvement in overall performance and health. Globe well offers world-class solutions for domestic water, delivering natural taste and pureness in the same time.
Globe well configures solutions including:
- Water testing
- Design of advanced, high efficiency water treatment systems
- Installation and regular maintenance
- The water treated by a system is tested before and after installation
Domestic water contaminant:
Drinking water can be contaminated with a wide variety of contaminants, include microbes from human and animal waste, chemical pollutants such as pesticides, heavy metals like arsenic and lead and even chemical by-products created by drinking water disinfection processes.
Both chemical and microbial, can cause illness and disease. Contamination can occur in drinking water derived from surface waters (lakes or rivers) or underground aquifers, and in water obtained from public water utilities or private wells.
List of substances that can contaminate water:
A number of harmful bacteria, viruses and parasites can enter the drinking water supply from human sewage, animal feces or rivers, lakes and streams.
This includes substances like asbestos which may leach from cement water mains, cyanide (used in insecticides, emissions from metal refineries and in plastics and pigment manufacture), Nitrogen fertilizers used in agricultural
Synthetic Organic Compounds (SOCs)
More than 50,000 SOCs, such as pesticides, solvents, industrial products and ingredients for cosmetics, cleaners and plastics, are produced today., This class of chemicals includes VOCs.
Drinking water can be contaminated by naturally or man-made radionuclides such uranium, radium, strontium.
Chlorine and Trihalomethanes
Chlorine is used by most water treatment facilities to kill bacteria. But chlorine reacts with organic chemicals forming a group of chemicals called trihalomethanes (THMs).
Heavy metals, such as lead, mercury, cadmium and arsenic, exist in nature, but their industrial use and subsequent disposal in landfills and through incineration has increased levels in water.
