Nitrate reduction

Water with high nitrate levels is not recommended for human consumption. It causes many problems, ranging from blue baby syndrome (if fed to babies under six months old) to a build up in the meat of poultry (leading to the meat no longer being white). The source of nitrate in ground water is usually from farming fertilizers. The EEC permitted maximum level is 50mg/l with an advisory of 25mg/l.

Nitrates dissolved in water cannot be removed by simple filtration. They can only be reduced by either re-generable or disposable ion exchange systems or eliminated by Reverse Osmosis (RO).

The first step is to have the water tested; from the results we will be able to advise and design suitable treatment system.
