Home Water Treatment Systems

People have become increasingly concerned about the quality of their water, including the possibility of contamination with hazardous substances. Sources of this contamination are solvents, pesticides, household cleaners, industrial wastes, and underground storage tanks. Chemical compounds, including methylene chloride, trichloroethylene (TCE), lindane, benzene, chlorobenzenes, carbon tetrachloride, and vinyl chloride have also been found in water supplies. 

Chlorination of drinking water can produce trihalomethans (THMs), which may be a cancer causing substance, according to some research. Radon, a radioactive decay product of natural uranium, is found in groundwater as well as in the air of buildings and have been correlated with an increase in lung cancer.

Water & Wastewater Reuse Solutions

Recycling wastewater can provide a reliable water source for industry, irrigation, and municipal use

Treating wastewater for reuse has become an accepted and reliable technical solution to address water scarcity problems around the world. Previously considered a disposal liability, reused wastewater can now become a valuable resource.

Ntesco has decades of experience around the globe in the advanced treatment of wastewater to purity levels that allow its reuse for industrial, agricultural, or municipal applications. We help our clients optimize their costs and minimize their environmental footprint.

Our energy-efficient solutions for industry can treat wastewater to a quality suitable for reuse in power generation, boiler feeds, cooling systems, beverage bottling, food production, and more.

Recycled treated wastewater can be used for surface irrigation of food crops, orchards and vineyards, golf courses, and landscaping. Other uses include recharging groundwater and preserving or augmenting wetlands or riparian habitats, as well as toilet flushing, street cleaning and other similar purposes.

With the high cost of transporting water, our decentralized wastewater treatment solutions are particularly suited to reuse applications close to the point of use. They provide a cost-effective solution, reduce the need to invest in large infrastructure projects, and help protect the environment.

Our water reuse solutions provide the following benefits, and more:
  • Preserve freshwater resources
  • Postpone or eliminate the need to develop a new water resource
  • Reduce disposal and energy costs
  • Improve visibility of long-term costs of water supply
  • Minimize the environmental impact of wastewater discharge
  • Attract new industry
  • Improve the sustainability of local communities and economy

Home Water Filtration Systems

Even though your water source is deemed safe by the EPA, in most cases water must travel a long way to reach your home. Along the way it can pick up bad tastes and odors which are caused by chlorine, low pH, sediment, iron, sulfur and manganese. In addition, the minerals and chemical compounds found in unfiltered water can be hard on your home’s plumbing system and major appliances such as dish washers and washing machines.

Iron and water treatment for iron

Iron and water treatment for iron can take many forms. Iron will cause an orange stain and many times it will be accompanied by manganese and hydrogen sulfide gas odor. Iron staining will be chocolate brown when it is combined with manganese. At high concentration (> .3ppm ) iron will cause the water to have a metallic taste and metallic odor. Water treatment for iron will depend on the form of the iron and the other contaminants found in the water.

Biological Filter Systems

Biological filter systems use air to assist microorganisms, worms and beetles to break up organic material in wastewater with very little or no odour. Typical systems use a single chamber and two pumps, one for wastewater and one for air.
