Understanding Water Filtration – Part 2

Now that we identified the different types of filtration technology let’s discuss particle sizes a bit. Depending on the type of contaminant and the type of filtration we are using, science uses three main conventions to describe particle size. Micrometers or microns – 1 micron = 0.00004 inches Angstrom units – 1 angstrom = 10(-4) microns. Or 10,000 angstroms = 1 micron Molecular Weight Units – 0 – 500,000. The…

Water Watch. A Matter of Life Or Death!

Water is crucial to us; Potential contamination sources grow more numerous every day and the risk to our safety and health are no longer something we can ignore. I think it would be wise for every community to work with their local utility and form a Water Consumer Awareness Board. Realize that each and every day water treatment plants are required to run quality tests and record the results into…

Dangerous Water !

In my E-book  -Water- I call water a dangerous substance that can literally be deadly in the wrong hands. Case in point examine what happened in Flint Michigan. The city of Flint switched from Lake Huron Water to a local river water. The chemistry of these two waters is so vastly different than residents had been exposed to lead poisoning and other harmful contaminants. I can say this over and…
