Water Treatment Solutions for Drinking Water Industry - Water and Wastewater - Drinking Water
Water is the most strictly controlled consumer commodity, and for good reason. We set the highest standards for our drinking water. It must be clean, safe and free of contaminants and should have no properties that might pose a risk to health. It should be rich in vital substances and supply our bodies with essential minerals. By the same token, water should not damage our pipe systems, taps, shower heads or any domestic appliances that use water.
The Cillit product range for perfect drinking water treatment in your home is as varied as the water quality in different regions!
In many countries, water delivered by the water company is basically clean and safe when it comes out of the tap. However, tap water can often contain sand and other particles which enter the water system during repairs and new connections. Fluctuations in pressure and vibration can also loosen rust and dirt particles that have lain in the local pipe network undisturbed for decades, resulting in taps, shower heads and the valves in household appliances becoming blocked.
In some countries drinking water from the tap is either unpleasant to the taste, due to the strong odour of chlorine, or contains contaminants (arsenic, lead, nitrates, etc.). Other regions may have to contend with high levels of calcium in the water, which can lead to deposits in pipework, burst pipes or other problems.
