Chlorine is used in domestic water to stop pathogenic (disease causing) microorganisms that cause such illnesses as typhoid fever, dysentery, cholera, and gastroenteritis. Whether a person contracts these diseases from water depends on the type of pathogen, the number of organisms in the water (density), the strength of the organism (virulence), the volume of water ingested, and the susceptibility of the individual. Purification of drinking water containing pathogenic microorganisms requires specific treatment called disinfection.
Chlorine disinfection reduces pathogenic microorganisms in water to levels designated safe by public health standards. This prevents the transmission of disease. An effective disinfection system kills or neutralizes all pathogens in the water. It is automatic, simply maintained, safe, and inexpensive. An ideal system treats all the water and provides residual for long term disinfection.
Chlorine Injection for Water Supply
Aqua North Water Systems uses the Injecta Athena dosage pump to inject a chlorine solution into the water supply at the required dosage. Our systems use a meter to communicate with the pump to allow for controlled dosages and better results. A contact vessel after injection is installed to give the chemical time to work and be tested quickly when making adjustments.
Water Tank & Line Sanitizing
Aqua North Water Systems has all the necessary equipment to properly sanitize water line and storage tank being used for commercial operations. Any water lines should be sanitized and sterilized upon start-up of a new building, camp or apartment. Water storage tanks should be cleaned and sanitized every year.
