Nitrates are tasteless, colourless and odourless compounds that you cannot detect unless your water is chemically analyzed. If you drink water from a private well, it is important to get a qualified independent laboratory to test the water for Nitrates.
High levels of nitrates in the water are DANGEROUS and the legal limit in potable water is 50mg/l. Levels higher than this, and the water can cause problems to people and animals alike; often we see this as a common threat to farm animals. This is generally the only way to tell (without testing) if there are nitrates in the water. In fact, it has been suggested that water with a high nitrate concentration can turn an infant’s skin a bluish color after extended exposure.
Nitrate Filtration System
At Johnny Flood Water Pumps we provide a range of solutions to deal with nitrate problems.
The most common solution is to install a nitrate reduction vessel. With this particular filtration system, the water flows through the resin and nitrates become trapped and flushed to backwash. This leaves you with clean, safe water. The system is automated, making it a cost-effective, hassle free solution to a dangerous problem.
