The purification process by ultrafiltration alone does not guarantee to produce drinking water from any type of water. It is therefore imperative to know the origin, microbiological and physicochemical composition of the water that is to be addressed to choose the right model water purifier.

The following table summarizes the types of water and adequate treatment systems:

Table on water treatment and adequate systems

  1. Water from the public network (tap water in the kitchen) = usually drinking water. 
    Water purifiers ultrafiltration FT Line are ideally suitable provided they use only purified water to drink and culinary use because their rate does not support the total consumption of a home.

    Purification of water by the FT Line 3 ultrafiltration system which replaces Cintroclear UF 400 and 500Purification of water by the FT Line 91 ultrafiltration system which replaces Cintroclear AC 110

  2. Rain water, well water and optionally spring water. Most of these waters are clear, no mineral content whose pH is lower than the average of 7 to 8. The storage quality is paramount. For reasons of safety and failing to have an exhaustive physicochemical analysis, it is advisable to use rather an model equipped with an additional device sterilization by ultraviolet treatment that neutralizes the risk of infections pathogens.
    Overall the source water does not need to be processed. It is especially storage and routing that can pose health concerns. However, some source of water can be polluted if it gushes in an unprotected agricultural or industrial environment and exposed ...
    However, if you want to purify and secure all of the water collected for the entire house, go in Cintropur UV systems that provide more throughput capacity per hour, up to 10 m3 / hour, enabling powering a large building, a house or a house according to the available models: Cintropur UV-2100, Cintropur DUO-UV, Cintropur TRIO-UV and Cintropur UV 10000 for example.

  3. Drilling water. Increasingly opted for more isolated dwellings and where mains water is nonexistent and whose land or technical work would be too expensive. Here, there is no standard. Each borehole water is very different depending on the region of the original geology and agricultural or industrial location. A comprehensive water analysis by a laboratory is essential, mandatory if we want to consume this water for drinking, cooking, laundry or shower / bath. The well water is often charged with sediment and is hard. When you got a scan, refer to the table and do not hesitate to contact a specialist via the contact form HERE.

By following a few rules in the water treatment, we can use them all under certain conditions according to their type of use. See the table of water treatment to use DRINKABLE and NON-DRINKING.

 Some websites claim that rain water should not be treated! Prudence, a single undetected outside contamination can threaten your health or even your life. Indeed, the quality of the collection, storage, and transportation of rainwater or well water are not always present. 

Rule number 1

All waters outside of public control should be treated by filtration, ultrafiltration, safe UV germicidal preventive.

Rule number 2

The water hardness (from where it comes) must be reduced by sodium softener, that is to say physically reduce the hardness when using a germicidal UV treatment system.

Rule number 3

Cartridges or filtration masses with activated carbon, compressed or not, must be replaced every year.

Rule number 4

UV lamps (ultraviolet) ideally should be changed every year at the latest after 2 years continuous operation.

Rule number 5

Must be cleaned with a vacuum device decontaminating product (without cartridges) and pipes at least once every 3-4 years.

Last advice before opting for a water treatment system: consult a specialist in the treatment of the water!

When in doubt, several tips are better than commercial speech. So is your health ...
