What is water treatment is it chemical

Chemical and physical water treatment

More on the subject:

Water decalcification not only reduces the lime content in drinking and service water, it also protects against rust. There are several options for water softening:

1. Chemical water treatment

The heart of a water softener is the ion exchanger. It is a granular synthetic resin that is layered in a pressure vessel. Calcium is removed from the water and replaced by sodium. Its capacity depends on the hardness of the raw water. It indicates how much lime can be absorbed from the water before the ion exchanger has to be refreshed with the selected regenerant. The regeneration takes place completely automatically through time control. Corresponding maintenance and refilling of the regenerant is required.

Danger! If drinking water is post-treated in your own area (disinfection, decalcification, filtration, etc.), you must ensure that this water does not end up in the public pipeline network. A backflow preventer or a pipe network separator must therefore be installed. To protect against pitting and broken pipes as well as to protect the fittings and devices, the installation of a water pollution filter is recommended.

2. Physical water treatment

This method works on an electrostatic or permanent magnet basis (without electricity). There is no decalcification / softening and therefore no change in the natural water quality. Without the addition of chemicals, the lime is kept in suspension in a purely physical way, thus preventing the formation of solid limestone on fittings, devices and pipelines, and at the same time these physically based devices break down existing incrustations and put on a protective layer against further corrosive attack the inner walls of the pipe.

Maintenance is not required, devices on a permanent magnetic basis also work without external energy and do not cause any electr. Installation costs and no running costs. Physical water treatment devices do not cause environmental pollution. The installation of a water protection filter is recommended to protect against pitting and broken pipes as well as to protect the fittings and devices
