Nitrates can be found in both tap and bottled water. It's made when plant matter decomposes naturally in the soil. Nitrate from the subsoil is washed into the groundwater by rain. Nitrogenous fertilisers used on arable agriculture can cause considerable nitrate contamination in groundwater and surface water.
Despite the fact that there are many different types of water purification systems on the market, reverse osmosis systems have a unique place in the hearts of customers looking for pure water. As a result, it is widely employed in residential, commercial, and industrial settings, and its popularity is growing globally. NETSOL offers the most cutting-edge line of whole-house water filters, which you can install and maintain yourself or have done for you by our professionals. NETSOL WATER SOLUTIONS delivers great customer service in addition to high-quality products.
WHAT IS REVERSE OSMOSIS SYSTEM?
Reverse osmosis (RO) is a technology that removes a feedwater stream containing dissolved contaminants (salts and organics) into two flows: one of removed solids (concentrate or reject) and one of purified water, producing soft permeate water.Even as feedwater passes through the membrane, ions and organics are left in the reject, leaving the permeate with 96 to 98% fewer impurities. Because of the limited solubility of the dissolved salts left behind in the reject, permeate recoveries are typically limited to 75%.
NITRATE AND CANCER
Several experiments have shown that extremely high nitrate dosages can cause cancer in laboratory animals. A lot of epidemiological studies have looked into the link between nitrate in tap water and cancer incidence. None of them have given any proof of a link. Indeed, multiple studies have found an inverse relationship between cancer incidence and nitrate levels in water, with cancer incidence decreasing as nitrate levels in water increased.It's crucial to remember that nitrate is found naturally in a variety of foods, including green vegetables, and that food accounts for the majority of our dietary nitrate consumption.
NECESSARY TO CONTROL NITRATE WATER
In extremely young children, high nitrate levels in the water can induce methemoglobinemia (blue baby syndrome). This is a disease that can be fatal. In the intestines, nitrate is turned to nitrite, which prevents the blood from absorbing oxygen. Only extremely high nitrate concentrations cause this extremely rare sickness.
HOW MUCH NITRATE IS IN YOUR WATER?
In England and Wales, 99.94% of nitrate tests on samples taken from public water supplies in 1999 met the nitrate criterion. In the few instances where the standard has been exceeded, corrective action is being taken. This action entails the installation of nitrate-reduction treatment processes. To ensure compliance with the nitrate standard, high nitrate water is blended with low nitrate water. It is very important to check the nitrate levels in water to safeguard ourselves and our families from various diseases.
