LEARN| An Overview of Water Testing

The first step in water testing is to identify what it is you are testing for. The quality of your water will depend on a number of factors. When protecting equipment and appliances we recommend testing for the following: calcium, magnesium, total hardness...

 

LEARN| Quality and Cost Benefits of Variable Bypass Heads

Variable bypass heads utilise technology that allow you to individually set your water filtration system to suit your water quality specific to your location. The heads can be set at increments (dependant on brand) from 0%-70% allowing you to filter 100% of all particulate matter and chlorine whilst bypassing a fixed percentage of the water away from the ion...

LEARN| Water Hardness

‘Hard’ water is the term commonly used to describe a quality of water which contains an above-average amount of dissolved calcium and magnesium ions. Levels of water hardness vary significantly across Australia with some areas as low as ten parts per million (ppm), right up to areas of South Australia that are reaching...

 

LEARN| Types of Water Hardness

The degree of hardness in a water source is determined by its level of positively charged ions such as calcium and magnesium. These ions usually find their way into a water source by slowly dissolving and leeching over time from minerals such as calcite and gypsum that are found in aquafers, bores, river systems, and other natural water...
