Water quality issues can have a variety of consequences, from scale-build-up blocking pipes in our home to high salinity in bore water affecting crop yields and livestock performance. In this blog, we look at some of the ways Hydrosmart technology resolves common water quality issues in Australia and why we’re the leaders across domestic, commercial, industrial and mining water conditioning solutions.
Scale Build-Up in Pipes
Hard water can cause scale build-up across domestic, commercial, industrial and municipal water pipes. The most common minerals responsible for blockages and poor flow rates include calcium, magnesium and iron. As scale build-up develops over the years, pipes start to narrow and eventually lead to slow drainage, clogs, backups, cracks and leaks.
Hydrosmart water conditioning technology removes mineral build-up in water pipes using computer-generated frequency resonance technology. This achieves de-scaling and scale prevention by converting large mineral particles into tiny particles, progressively breaking down the existing mineral scale, algae and other biofilms. The smaller particles mean these minerals become bioavailable as a plant nutrient, providing an additional benefit in addition to preventing blockages in pipes and other equipment such as taps, hoses, showers and sprinkler heads.
High Concentration of Salts
Bore water is commonly used for domestic, commercial and industrial applications ranging from watering gardens and lawns at home to sports grounds, crops and livestock. Due to bore water being stored underground, it tends to contain higher levels of salts such as sodium chloride, magnesium, calcium, sulphates and bicarbonates than surface water supplies. This excess salinity can cause major issues such as poor yield, plant/crop damage and poor soil conditions.
As an experienced water-softening for the agricultural industry, Hydrosmart technology can effectively combat high salinity levels in bore water supplies. It works by breaking down the bonds between minerals and charged compounds through uniquely programmed resonance frequencies. Unlike other bore water treatment systems, Hydrosmart doesn’t require any chemicals and also prevents recurring salt build-up.
Corrosion From Mineral Precipitation
Corrosion occurs when minerals on metal surfaces precipitate. Corrosion can cause trace metals from pipes, pumps, sprinklers, water mains and other equipment to enter the water supply. Severe corrosion can even lead to the presence of toxic heavy metals in water. Metals like lead and copper are known to be toxic, leading to gastrointestinal problems and liver and kidney damage with prolonged exposure.
By dissolving mineral buildup and preventing mineral precipitation, Hydrosmart water conditioning technology controls corrosion. By neutralising corrosion, health risks from corrosion are mitigated while ensuring infrastructure such as pipes, taps, tanks, nozzles and valves last longer and work better.
