Bore water treatment systems in Australia require high-quality solutions. Bore water stores are often large and prone to excess amounts of mineral build-up and salinity. With a Hydrosmart bore water softener, mineral content can be effectively managed. In this blog, we explore ways in which bore water irrigation systems are increasingly being used in Australia.
What is Bore Water?
The term ‘bore water’ refers to groundwater that has been obtained by drilling a bore into underground water storages called aquifers. It is extracted using a pump and is frequently used for drinking, irrigation and mining water supplies. Bore water is, more often than not, high in mineral content and potential contaminants. The usage of bore water is determined by its quality and salt levels: if salt levels become too high, water usage is limited, ineffectual and even harmful until a bore water softener can be installed.
What Makes Bore Water Different?
Compared to other water sources such as lakes, rivers and reservoirs, bore water is pumped from the ground. Often composed of rainwater that has seeped into the ground and been stored in spaces between soil and rocks, bore water is chemical free and high in nutrient-rich minerals. In comparison to city-treated water, groundwater significantly reduces water bills as you’re using the water on your land. The main outlays are for pumps and water conditioning. As mineral content can be much higher in bore water, iron removal from bore water can become difficult if you use the wrong equipment.
Hydrosmart and Bore Water
Hydrosmart technology is designed to break down mineral bonds present in your bore water supply. Once these mineral bonds are weakened by Hydrosmart’s unique resonance frequencies, iron removal from bore water becomes much easier, and blockages and scale build-up are prevented. Bore water irrigation becomes much more effective with Hydrosmart technology, safeguarding the health of your home, livestock, and crops, with guaranteed longevity of your infrastructure.
