Borehole Water Systems
Boreholes make a great source of water. Once processed this can be used for large scale irrigation, feeding livestock or industrial processes.
With the right treatment it can also be used as drinking water
Lubron’s quality borehole water systems will allow you to remove any impurities or contaminants before use.
Iron and Manganese in Boreholes
Iron is a major problem in borehole water. Agricultural use of water with high iron content causes irrigation equipment and drippers to clog up and eventually needs replacement. It also suppresses crop, vegetation and plant growth.
Domestic use of water with iron content will stain walls, laundry, baths, basins, toilets, and affect foods and beverage taste.
Water with high iron content will be seen as red discoloured water and forms insoluble rust particles. Concentrations above 0.3 mg/litre can cause staining over time
Treat this with our range of Iron and manganese filters
Hardness in Boreholes
One of the other major contaminants found in borehole water is Hardness caused by Calcium and Magnesium.
In industrial and commercial process water systems, this hardness can cause scale in pipework and boilers.
Hardness can be removed by Ion Exchange where the harmful Calcium and Magnesium are replaced by Sodium
