Turbidity and Sediment Removal admin
Much of the water that comes into our homes or businesses is surface water. So what exactly does this mean to you. Specifically, it means that at times there are going to be traces of dirt, rust, and other particles in your water supply. Not exactly the ideal situation.
Johnny Flood Water Pumps’ sand and media filters for turbidity and sediment removal have numerous layers of filtration media. Particles are trapped in the filter media thereby creating pure and clean water.
What causes turbidity?
There are various parameters influencing the cloudiness of the water. Some of these are:
Sediments from erosion
Resuspended sediments from the river floor
Organic particles from peat bogs
Suspended sediment and turbidity can protect pathogens from disinfection. Dangerous microorganisms such as cryptosporidium can be shielded from sterilization by cloudy water. They can then easily pass through filters and enter your water supply.
