Safety Tips for water systems

# Water Filter Cartridges should be changed regularly. Once they have reached their capacity for filtering, they can begin to release substances previously filtered or block the flow of water altogether.
# Always allow the cold water faucet is opened when the heater is in use.
# Never store combustible or flammable, such as gasoline, paint thinners, aerosol cans, etc., in a room with a gas water heater. These elements can give off vapors that may come into contact with the control gas and cause a fire.

Hot Water Tank

# Can run on either gas or electricity.
# Copper, stone and glass lined water heaters perform better than uncoated aluminum or hot dip galvanized steel.
# A stainless steel alloy called HWT is designed to resist corrosion and models lined.
# Unlined galvanized steel tanks to perform less well, but they are less expensive and may be satisfactory in areas where water has no adverse effects on equipment.
# To stop the corrosion of the tank, a metal rod magnesium coating is available. It is hung inside the tank 3 "or 4" away from the bottom. Because paper magnesium will eventually be eaten, the stem should be inspected periodically and replaced if necessary.
# Better quality, non-metallic gas water heaters are also popular.
# Tanks, although more expensive than metal models are lightweight, easy to install and resistant to corrosion.
# Advise owners to partially drain their water heater once or twice a year to remove sediment, which may affect the operation.

Tankless Water Heaters

# Can run on either gas or electricity.
# Instantaneous water heaters are small heating units that are hooked into the plumbing pipes and heat water only as needed. They do not store water, but the heat by moving into the unit.
# Most tankless heaters are installed where water enters the house, smaller units are installed where the water is used and require more than one in a house. Some work on AC, others on gas.
# Some of the larger units require plumbing and different size vents sized combustion than tank-type heater.
If #, gas, heating must be properly ventilated, if electric, it may be wired in series with two units that can not be practical for existing home wiring. Larger units require a 220V or 240V line. Smaller units will operate on standard 110 lines.
# Tankless heaters are more expensive than the types of tanks. However, they do produce annual savings in energy consumption and cost.
Although tankless heaters # provide continuous hot water, they are limited in quantity. The CPU can not support the demand of hot water at several points simultaneously, obviously, the small units heat water delivered only at the points where they are installed.
# Because of the high initial cost and that American consumers are not used to the limits of heater rather than the availability of hot water, their use is recommended to supplement the heaters of type reservoirs or in summer homes or places where the demand for hot water is light.

Water Softener

# Help remove minerals (magnesium, calcium, iron) that cause "hard" water.
# Softening water quality fittings are either fiber glass or steel tanks that have double epoxy coatings rust guaranteed.
# Fiberglass tanks to prevent electrolytic action which causes rust and corrosion too, because there is no metal to metal contact. When water enters the house, it is directed into the water softener. The water passes over a bed of minerals, mineral exploitation of lime and magnesium in the water.
Chemicals in unit # water softener must be regenerated, cleaned or replaced. The regeneration process happens by reversing the flow of water in the tank water softener and the addition of sodium chloride or potassium chloride. The flow of hot water spilled quickly accumulated minerals from the chemical
# Softening water quality are solid brass and copper valves and bearings. Of iron or steel parts are rarely used as a softener because salt can cause rust.
# One of the best ways to sell water softeners is to offer free testing for the owners to determine the hardness of their water. If the water shows 8-10 grains of hardness, a water softener are recommended to ensure the reception of sufficient fresh water. If tests show 15 grains of hardness, a water softener is needed. The test is easy to perform. Ask the customer to bring a water sample at home in the store are soaked paper specially treated water. paper color will change depending on the hardness of the water. test kits contains tables of hardness.

Water Filter

# Used to kill bacteria and / or chemicals suspended in water to improve taste and smell. Filters should be installed under the sink or where the water enters the building (filters, whole house). Others climbed onto the faucet or countertop.
# The basic types of filtration devices are water activated carbon filters, reverse osmosis, distillation and aeration.
# Activated carbon filters are the filtration devices of the cheapest water. They can remove impurities and improve taste and odor of water, but do not eliminate the dissolution of minerals or bacteria. One solution is to combine a carbon filter with a chlorination system.
# Reverse osmosis systems out dissolved mercury, cadmium and other heavy metals that are present in the water, but will not eliminate the microorganisms. They are also relatively expensive.
# Distillation removes most impurities in the water system. Working slowly and distillers should be cleaned regularly
# Aeration reduces, but does not necessarily, the levels of iron, chlorine and other gases in water. It works best when combined with other forms of treatment.
# Some filter cartridges feature that can be cleaned and reused several times before replacing it.
# Filters based on ceramic technology will remove up to 100 percent of bacteria and chemicals, tastes and smells. Some have proven effective in removing contaminants such as algae, chlorine and detergents found in many water supplies in urban areas.
# Another model under-sink even reduced levels of MTBE, a gasoline additive that contaminates wells and some municipal water systems.
# The study information about Always specific filters that you sell.

Sump Pump

# Used for groundwater that accumulates around the landfill a basement which is below the waterline. The basement must have a drain around to collect water from the soil and deliver it to the sump in the basement.
# A submersible pump is a type of motor and pump in a sealed unit that rests in the sump.
# A pedestal pump is in the water, but the engine is mounted on a column above the water. They are available in models with automatic or manual, either by gravity or the operation self-priming.
# Pump capacity is rated by gallons per hour pumping and pressure generated in lift high the liquid must be pumped. Submersible sewage and effluent pumps are for continuous use in moving large volumes of water containing solids.
# Some pumps have a battery backup, and a combination electric and battery operated sump pump is now available.

Purpose Pumps

# Lightweight pump flooded basements used to clear, drain low spots after a heavy rain, etc. used by farmers, boaters and campers and owners.
# A guy works with a 12V battery and can be attached to a car, truck, tractor or boat battery.
# Another type uses a standard 115V household current.
# Most units pumping 250-500 gallons per hour, and are self-priming, easy to use

Utility Pumps

Gasoline powered pumps # Larger than all purpose? and often.
# Used to pump manholes, irrigation and lawn watering, for fire protection and as a source of emergency water during a power outage.
Capacities range up to 85 # gallons per minute. Suction lifts up to 25 '.
# Another type is a high pressure pump, hand tool that adds up to 80 lbs. the manifold pressure. It operates on 115V current, and when connected to a standard garden hose can be used to water the fairways hard surfaces and windows, wash cars, boats and clean areas of housing policy. They can also draw water from shallow wells, cisterns, etc.

Systems Homewater

# It consists of a pump, pressure tank and switch.
# The water tank between the cup and the pressure on the threshold setting of the pump, usually 20-40 PSI. Although 20-40 lbs. the pressure is sufficient, 30-50 lbs. or 40-60 lbs. is the best for home deliveries. Since the reservoir supplies small amounts of water, the pump does not need to light every time a faucet is used.
# The pumps are shallow wells or from deep wells. Shallow-well pumps are installed at well depths of 25 "or less. After pumping from deep wells can be used in water depths of 300 'or more, depending on altitude.
# Power Rating HP determines the size of the pump. Pumps used in the home are the average 1/3-, 1/2-, 3/4- or 1-HP. When customers choose a pump to assist in finding the capacity needed by counting the number of taps in the house (tub faucets account for two) and multiplying by 60. This is the number of gallons per hour pump must provide from the well. Remind your customers to allow devices that use more water.
# Home-water system pumps are usually centrifugal or jet. Such built a centrifugal force, which raises the water.
# Old houses can have a piston pump. A piston pump builds pressure that draws water through the casing.
# There are several important terms to know when the sale of a pump: the well-enterprises. The inside diameter of the pump wells indicates the proper size, the ejector cylinder or down pipe (pipe that is lowered into the casing for water transport) and foot valve (located at the bottom of the pipe the drop to prevent the backflow of water in the well). Pumping level. The vertical distance in feet from the pump to the water level when the pump is running. If pump is installed away from the well and is on higher ground, this elevation must also be included.
# Most wells draw down (the water level falls in the well water is pumped into the house) so this should not be confused with the level of permanent water.
# Head Pressure medium: the discharge pressure normal average is 30 lbs., Halfway between 20-40 lbs knob of most water systems. When the tank is installed near the pump to a higher level or when the garden and home accessories are above the pump and tank, greater pressure is needed and a larger pump must be used.
# Power Requirements: It is the discharge capacity of the pump gallons per hour for the services necessary satisfactory. The pump must have sufficient capacity so it does not need to work more than the equivalent of two hours a day in intermittent service.
# Of Points: They used to drive holes in the ground is soft and mostly free of rocks and where water is known to be close to the surface. Points are screwed to the end of the hose down into the ground, then the point and pipe are driven into the ground with a hammer or mallet. Many items have filter baskets on the ends that sift the dirt and small stones.


# A large catch basin that holds tight when sewage decomposes by bacterial action.
# In asphalt? coated steel tile, redwood, concrete, concrete block, clay brick.
# Tanks should be sized according to the house. Two bedroom houses must have at least 750 tanks per gallon, according to the U.S. Public Health Service. Three bedroom homes need 900 gallon tanks 1,000 tanks require four bedrooms gallon. garbage disposals, washing machines and dishwashers are represented in this estimate.
# Flow of household wastewater in the septic tank and decomposes. Sludge accumulates in the bottom of the tank and liquid waste flows on a distribution network. The distribution system is a series of underground storage lines radiate outward from a central distribution point, the effluent seeps into the ground.
# Sludge remaining in the tank must be cleaned regularly to prevent accumulation of this layer sufficiently to cause obstruction or disposal lines sanitary sewer line.
# In normal use, the tank can be cleaned at intervals of two to four years, but most experts recommend that the sludge be inspected every 12-18 months. Verify by opening a manhole or special trap located at or near ground level.
# Cleaning of septic tank sludge dissolve by activating enzymes that regenerate the activity of natural bacterial decomposition whose tanks were designed. These natural activators of bacteria continue from the tank into the drain and septic.
