Making Florida water potable
Florida is a peninsula and people all over the world like to come to visit, to live, work and play. Why? because it’s truly Beautiful. Don’t you agree?
The Florida aquifer and contaminants
Being a Peninsula carries an inherent problem, the water supply comes from the Florida Aquifer. This means we need to pump our water from the ground which requires a huge investment in energy and electro mechanical infrastructure. Pumping water from the Florida aquifer brings up several water contaminants: Iron, Sulfur, Tannins, Lignins, Calcium, Magnesium, Manganese, Nitrates, Nitrites, Coliform Bacteria, and e-coli bacteria just to name a few.
Treating Florida water
Florida Cities have to treat their water at the local Water Treatment plants with various chemicals namely Biocides like CHLORAMINES (MIXTURE OF CHLORINE AND AMMONIA), GAS CHLORINE, limestone is added to maintain proper PH and water must be filtered through special filters containing Sand and Anthracite. The final product goes to our home as POTABLE WATER; All of this means that there are a great deal of contaminants in the water that is delivered to our homes. That’s why we all have to treat the water at the point it enters our homes. For Private well water applications, Central Florida Water Treatment offers pre-treatment filtration and purifications systems specifically for your application to treat the entire home and deliver clean water 24/7 .
