  1. Is Whole House Reverse Osmosis Right for You?

    The article will aim to help assist you in the understanding of determining the water processing equipment you may need while also providing clarification on some of the small details within determining the correct equipment and chemicals to use within your house or place of business.

    Whole House RO

    To first begin we can discuss why water processing is so important. I don’t have to tell you the importance of water as it is used from everything from drinking water or consumable products, to use within energy systems, boilers and many other applications. The one trouble however that water poses is that it is a universal solvent. It has the ability to dissolve many different chemicals or substances. Now depending on the substance, it may dissolve more or less but most things

  2. Is Nanofiltration Right for Your Industrial Application?

    According to a report published by the United Nations, clean water sources are under increasing pressure as global population increases. In turn, many industrial facilities are under pressure not only to treat the water they need to operate, but also to reduce overall water consumption. Nanofiltration can help industrial facilities filter water, soften water, and generate potable water while helping to save energy and valuable industrial space.

    In commercial settings, nanofiltration can remove:

    heavy metals—which in some cases can be demineralized and reused

  4. Nominal Rejection Performance of Standard TFC Reverse Osmosis Membranes

    Nominal rejection performance table below is extracted from Water Quality Association knowledge base for standard thin film composite reverse osmosis membranes operating at operating at a net pressure (feed pressure less back pressure and osmotic pressure) of 60 psi and 77°F water temperature. Performance of ro systems utilizing TFC membranes may be less due to changes in feed pressure, temperature, water chemistry, contaminant level, net pressure on membrane, and individual membrane efficiency. Tank-less RO systems (such as countertop ROs) and ROs with atmospheric tanks produce better overall rejection performance than undersink ROs (or ROs with pressure tanks) due to maximizing of net pressure on membrane.

  5. Can a Water Softener Treat Iron?

    Our experts can help you determine the correct system, so please consult us before ordering.  The limiting factors in choosing the proper filtration media include the amount of dissolved oxygen, pH level, oxidation-reduction potential (ORP), water temperature, and carbon dioxide (CO2).  Let WECO help you find the proper system to best meet your needs.

  6. How do I boost pressure in a reverse osmosis system?

     WECO Permeate Pump Installation Diagram

    What is the perfect water pressure for my RO?

    Most revers osmosis membranes are designed to work with 60 PSI or higher water pressure, where they are tested to yield a stable rejection rate of at least 97.5%. If the water pressure feeding an RO system is less than that, the system will produce less water and at a lower quality. Additionally, production is reduced whenever the water temperature is below 77 °F. Private well systems most commonly have pressurized storage tank and pump systems with 20/40 psi or 30/50 psi on/off pressure settings. In such cases an electric pressure boosting

  7. Laboratory Water Testing

    Municipal water supplies are tested at the treatment facility to maintain the mandated water quality standards set by US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). However, if you own or manage a private well, you should already know that there is no federal or state oversight of your water supply. If you buy or sell the property there may be a requirement to have the well tested. You are responsible for the quality of your well water. All testing, conditioning and filtration is your responsibility.

    How frequently should I test?

    EPA recommends you test your well water supply every year for total coliform bacteria, nitrates, total dissolved solids and pH levels, especially if you have a new well, or have replaced or repaired pipes, pumps or the well casing.

  9. Benefits of Alkaline Water

    If you’re health-conscious you’ve heard about the benefits of drinking alkaline water.  Independent research is beginning to verify a link between drinking alkaline water and health benefits. At Montana State University, Dr. Dan Heil discovered that drinking alkaline water is beneficial to our health. Dr. Heil conducted an experiment comparing blood characteristics of people who drank alkaline water versus a group that consumed non-alkaline water. The test group that consumed alkaline drinking water had measurable increases in urine and blood pH during the second and third week of the experiment. Dr. Heil also found that the alkaline test group had higher levels of hydration. These positive changes reversed after the group started drinking non-alkaline water during the fourth week. The health benefits were observed only when alkaline water was consumed regularly. Our bodies try to maintain a neutral pH because it makes biochemical reactions run smoothly. However, our

  10. The Importance of Water Filtration in Your Home

    Just about everyone is talking about the quality of their drinking water. But what is “good” drinking water? We hear about contaminated water supplies, chemical spills, bad tastes and odors but don’t understand what it all means. Unless you’re a water expert, it can be hard to understand what defines water quality. Not to worry! We’ll break it down into an easy to understand guide that will make you a well-informed consumer of drinking water.

    Let’s start by defining your water source. If you have a well your water is being pumped from an individual well located on your property. There is no federal or state oversight of your water supply. If you buy or sell the property there may be a requirement to have the well tested. You are responsible for the quality of your well water. All testing, conditioning and filtration is your responsibility.

    Municipal water sources are under the oversight of federal and state regulations. The water supply
