Signs of the problem – Cloudy, murky or discoloured water. This can be caused by suspended solids in the water, rain water runoff, or the presence of heavy metals.
Solution. Install a Turbidity reduction filter. The correct type of turbidity reduction unit will need to be specified based on the feed water quality, water flow rates and water demand. A backwashing filter vessel would be used. In many cases where the level of turbidity is low a simple cartridge filter arrangement would suffice.
Commonly used turbidity reduction medias include Turbidex, Filter Ag & Filter AG+, Gravel, sand and Anthracite.
