We have brackish water.

People think that they have brackish water and when they search for brackish water they find that their water is salty. You will then get information about the treatment of salt in your water. The best thing that you could do is to get the water tested at an accredited laboratory. Please do not take your water to the water shop. Some of the water shops would inform you that they have a laboratory that could test the water. The laboratory that they use is their own and the focus is to sell their water systems.

How to treat brackish water.

The water system to treat brackish water is called a water softener system. The system use a resin media that collects the calcium and magnesium as it flow pass the resin. The system is then back washed once every second or third night depends on the level of calcium and magnesium in the water. The backwash process involves the use of a salt solution that flow pass the resin and that cause the resin to discharge the calcium and magnesium that have collected around the resin. This system is very effective. If you have this problem please feel free to contact us. We will assist you to solve the problem.
