A chemical we all know is inserted into our public water supplies at the treatment centres is the chemical called chlorine. There is many chemicals inserted but one that is obvious to us due to the actual quantities inserted and to the pungent smell is Chlorine. The same chlorine is put into swimming pools to treat the water. In fact, its hard to believe although it is true, the EPA allows a higher level of chlorine in tap water (4 parts per million/ppm) than the recommended chlorine levels for public swimming pools (1-3 ppm). To remove all the chlorine and other chemicals from your drinking water only , the best solution is the Irish Model NSF Reverse Osmosis system Read More……
However, with the increase in skin (etc itchy rashy skin ) and hair complaints (etc: hair going yellow or green after getting expensive highlights or hair dye) being attributed to chlorine and chemicals In the water, many people are now also looking to remove the chlorine from the entire house ensuring that they can bathe comfortably in baths and showers knowing that their skin is not absorbing all the chlorine into their bodies. The Filtercal Chlorine and Chemical removal system is an amazing system to alleviate this issue Read More……
With the high levels of Chlorine inputted into our water along with many other chemicals there is always the chance of creating other chemicals as each mixes together. When some organic matter in the water prior to treatment is mixed with high levels of Chlorine, there is always the risk of creating a by-product of chlorine called Trihalomethanes or THM’s for short. This by- product is certainly unwanted and has been linked to some very serious health issues. To remove all the Trihalomethanes and other chemicals like its parent Chlorine from your drinking water only , the best solution is the Irish Model NSF Reverse Osmosis system Read More……
As with Chlorine , The trihalomethanes thm’s and other chemicals and heavy metals are now causing people to worry about absorbing it into our bodies particularly during bathing or showering as chlorine and its byproducts are absorbed easily into our bodies as we wash. The Filtercal Chlorine and Chemical removal system is an amazing system to alleviate this issue Read More……
Over the last number of years there has been a massive increase in the contamination of well water due to a multitude of factors resulting in levels of total coliform bacteria , enterocci and e-coli being found in the water. It is not advised to drink or bathe in water that is known to have any coliforms in it whatsoever. The good news is that it is fairly easy to protect against Read More..
Arsenic can be present in your well water supply due to a number of reasons. Either the Arsenic is from natural deposits in the earth or even due to industrial or agricultural pollutants.
Boiling your water will not remove Arsenic , in fact it may indeed increase its concentrated levels as water is evaporated during the boiling process. Bleaching , chlorinating or any adding of chlorine will not remove Arsenic either.
There is 2 options available. One is to remove the Arsenic for one tap only at your kitchen sink .
To do so , the best solution is the Irish Model NSF Reverse Osmosis system Read More….
However, many people opt to remove the Arsenic levels in the entire house. This is achieved by installing in a 10×44 filter vessel with a Clack Auto back wash head valve , containing a special mix of Bayoxide media inside .This is installed after the pump and expansion vessel but before the water enters the property. After this 10 x 44 Arsenic Bayoxide Filter unit is installed, the arsenic will be removed from the water.

Levels of Ammonia in some well water can be over the advised ammonia limits. Water with a
high ammonia level can be removed easily with cation resin used in an ion exchange water
softener. Click the link here to the water softeners section.
See below the accepted levels of Ammonia. (Note that the unit of analysis shown is mg/l , some
test labs show results in ug/l , so in that instance divide the ug/l x 1000 to get the mg/l result)
If there are other contaminants like turbidity,color,odor,iron,manganese, magnesium to name a
few ,that are over the recommended levels in addition to Ammonia, we would require checking
these levels also before advising the solution required as the treatment could require a Filter Ag
Unit and/or CrystalRite unit, if the other levels are high in addition to Ammonia.
Nitrates and nitrites are commonly found in well water supplies on or close to farmland in
rural areas. The chemical fertilisiers used on farmland contain a lot of nitrates and/or nitrites
and this is one factor in it entering the water table. Nitrate is a chemical seen in most fertilizers,
manure, and liquid waste discharged from septic tanks and soak pits. Nitrite is prevalent in most
fertisilers and in liquid waste from septic tanks also. There is very little difference between
nitrates and nitrites other than the number of oxygen atoms is different to one another.
Drinking water with high levels of nitrates and/or nitrites is not advised , particularly for babies.
Boiling your water will not remove the nitrates or nitrites, it actually could make the
concentration of them higher as the water evaporates.
To remove all the nitrates and nitrites from your drinking water , the best solution is the Irish
Model NSF Reverse Osmosis system Read
See below the accepted levels of Nitrates and Nitrites. (Note that the unit of analysis shown is

For wholehouse removal of nitrates and nitrites, we install a strong nitrate specific resin inside an 8×35 Litre vessel with a Clack auto backwash volumetric head with ion exchange and a 35L brine tank. This will reduce the levels of nitrates and nitrites all over the property. It is advised to install both the wholehouse nitrate filter unit aswell as the point of use Reverse Osmosis system when nitrate levels are high.
