It has been proven that water softeners can reduce running costs in your home or business, thereby providing real savings in the areas of maintenance and replacement of appliances. In hard water areas, appliances have a life expectancy of 40% less than those in soft water areas. If you need to buy a water softener system anywhere in Ireland, well then, you have come to the right place. We at CWS are committed to providing home owners with the very best quality water softeners available.
Reverse Osmosis (RO) water filters are the most popular type of water filter used for drinking water in Ireland. Reverse Osmosis is a filtration process that is used to remove a wide range of contaminants to give water of a very high purity. Most reverse osmosis systems are five or six stage filtration units and fit in under your kitchen sink. Most people are aware that filtering tap water can improve its quality.
We supply many different types of water filters, filters for drinking water at your tap,filters for water coolers and filters for whole house or commercial water treatment. They vary from block carbon water filters to sediment removal and taste & odour filters. We also carry a range of Ultrafiltration Water Filters. We supply 10" or 20" sizes or larger if required. We also carry all replacement filters for reverse osmosis filters.
We supply many different types of water coolers, both for home/private use and business use. Both systems offer the same high quality drinking water filtered for that crisp, refreshing taste. We sell and install water coolers throughout Ireland and all of our office and home water cooler systems comes with our standard quality guarantee.
For Iron & Manganese removal the ion exchange water softener is one of the most common tools of water treatment. Its function is to remove scale-forming calcium and magnesium ions from hard water. In many cases soluble iron can also be removed by water softeners, Birm and/or Crystal Rite.
The presence of iron in water is not considered a health problem. It will cause:
* orange/brown staining on sanitary ware, laundry etc.
* brown deposit in pipes
* very low taste threshold
At high concentrates in water manganese will cause:
* an unpleasant taste
* deposits on food during cooking
* stains on sanitary ware
* discoloration of laundry
* deposits on plumbing fittings and cooking utensils
Iron & Manganese Removal Systems
CWS offer a range of filter systems to eliminate iron and manganese from water.
Automatic back washing filter system using a Birm media. Birm is an efficient and economical method of removing dissolved iron and manganese compounds from raw water supplies. It acts as an insoluble catalyst to enhance the reaction between dissolved oxygen and the iron/manganese compounds. When using Birm for iron removal it is necessary that the water contains no oil or hydrogen sulphide, organic matter does not exceed 5 ppm, the dissolved oxygen content is at least 15% of the iron content and the pH is 7 or higher. For manganese removal the above also applies but the minimum pH is 8.0.
Automatic back-washing filter using crystal rite media which regenerates using tablet salt. Crystal rite provides superior removal of iron, manganese & hardness while raising pH levels of acidic water at the same time. Crystal rite crystals provide better filtration and are thoroughly cleaned by back-washing faster than ordinary resins without loss of product. Crystal Rite is available in two types;
Crystal Right 100 is used where the raw water pH is between 6.0 and 7.0. (if the pH is lower than 6.0 then conventional pH correction will also be needed.)
Crystal Right 200 is used where the raw water pH is 7.0 or above, its advantage in this situation is a higher capacity.
