Water Turbidity is a measure of the degree to which the water loses its transparency due to the presence of suspended particulates. The more total suspended solids in the water, the murkier it seems and the higher the turbidity.
Turbidity is considered as a good measure of the quality of water.
Over 70% of Irish drinking water is classed as surface water. Our traditional multi-media sand filter is your first line of defense from turbidity, suspended solids, colour and bacteria. We have the exclusive agency for the Vortech™ system, a water treatment technology that will reduce back-wash water usage and save on your water bill.
What causes Turbidity?
There are various parameters influencing the cloudiness of the water. Some of these are:
- Sediments from erosion
- Re-suspended sediments from the bottom (frequently stir up by bottom feeders like carp)
- Waste discharge
- Algae growth
Water Turbidity Solution
The Uisce 4 U solution harnesses layered media beds that work at high flow rates, however, other more specialist media may be utilised to achieve better polishing results with certain waters.
