WASTE WATER TREATMENT
Wastewater treatment is the process of taking wastewater and making it suitable for discharge back into the environment. Wastewater can be formed by a variety of activities, including washing, bathing, and using the toilet. Rainwater runoff is also considered wastewater. This water is full of bacteria, chemicals, and other contaminants.
Despite, extensive methods of treating this water, the possibility of contamination is real and poses a long-term risk to the environment.
LAKE AND POND TREATMENT
We’ve all experienced that smell of musty, rotten smell that ponds or outdoor water fountains can bring. One of the most common causes for the odor is the lack of aeration. In the summer, ponds that aren’t aerated, stratify into different layers of water that have different temperatures. The bottom layer of water can be trapped for months! In the trapped layer, the water’s oxygen level is used up quickly, creating an anaerobic environment — perfect for slow-moving bacteria that utilize enzymes to ferment and digest the decaying plant and animal waste in your pond, otherwise known as ‘pond muck.’ The bacteria ultimately produces waste products, like hydrogen sulfide, the culprit of that rotten egg smell we all flee from.
These treatments are very expensive, time consuming and have bad byproducts. Red Oxy 3 is a catalyst for a biological systems and is completely green technology. No equipment needed.
Typical water remediation includes technologies such as mixing, diluting and dosing pumps to add oxidative or reductive conditions. Typical treatment usually includes chlorination, multi-media filtration, ultra violet light systems and carbon filters. These treatments are very cost effective and time consuming.
IRRIGATION SYSTEM TREATMENT
Irrigation water sources commonly contain a high level of contamination, which is challenging for any irrigation system. Micro irrigation systems can become fouled and plugged and emitters can stop working due to the contents in the water source, biological contaminants, sand or debris.
Treatment is done by injecting the concentrated chemical into the water line, either with an electric chemical pump or with a passive siphoning system powered by the flow of water itself.
