Ensure Your Drinking Water is Pure & Hygienic
Fresh drinking water is something we all take for granted. But with the water quality in Ireland constantly coming into question, it is common for people to install a water filter system in the home to protect their family from harmful bacteria and chemicals often found in today’s water. The filtration and purification process removes impurities such as bacteria, algae, fungi, fertilisers and more.
There are numerous water filtration systems available today and they are relatively inexpensive and simple to fit.
Depending on the water problems or the individuals concerns on water quality, there is a water filtration system to suit all.
Not all water filters are exactly the same, as not all water problems are exactly the same either. Sometimes one water filter can solve the problem or it could be a combination of water filters. We look after both domestic and commercial sectors and we can recommend the best solution.

The removal and freeing of water from all types of impurities, contaminants, odours, tastes and micro organisms is called water purification.
Water purification has come a long way over the past number of years. Medical and science labs have always required a certain quality of water as well as big industries and now water purifiers are available for domestic use.
Hard water leads to accumulation of limescale in household appliances. It also reduces soap’s lather. A Water Softener installed on your incoming mains will remove the hardness from the water and allow you to enjoy the benefits of soft water while protecting appliances.
The unit consists of two parts, the first: a pressure filled vessel containing a resin, and the second: a container for the salt. An ion exchange takes place where the calcium and magnesium causing the hardness is softened or replaced with the salt and this is what is known as softened water.
Periodically, depending on how much water is used, the system will regenerate or recharge itself and backwash the calcium and magnesium down the drain. This is a fully automatic process and is usually timed to happen at night. Softened water provides real cost savings in service, maintenance and replacement of water heaters, dishwashers, washing machines and showers and also extends their life.
On average a Water Softener system will use around 1 bag of salt a month and units can be supplied and fitted either in the utility room, outside the back window or inside in the garage. There are many great benefits to using softened water besides protection of your pipes and electrical equipment, including saving on detergents, cleaning products, brighter clothes, cleaner dishes, sparkling glasses, cleaner taps, no more stains on bathroom fixtures, reduce razor burn, healthier, softer skin and hair.
Iron & Manganese in water supplies are known to cause health problems and staining. Mid Cork Pump Services provides a number of standard, proven technologies in removing iron and manganese from drinking water.
Iron and Manganese is commonly treated with Iron and Manganese Filters. Depending on the quantity of Iron and Manganese in the water, a Manganese Green Sand Filter may be incorporated into the water filter. These water filters are usually custom built after analyzing the water chemistry in your water source. Commercial and domestic applications are available and depend on the quantity of water required.
In many areas, particularly in mountainous regions, you may suffer from a low pH value and as a result this can cause corrosion in water pipes or a metallic taste in your drinking water. Signs that your water may have a low pH are a green / blue stain in baths, sinks and cisterns.
A simple solution is the installation of a pH Correction Filter that adjusts the pH of acidic waters. Inside the water filter you will find a substance called calcite, specially activated masses of calcium carbonate that slowly raise the pH of the water. Backwash happens periodically to maintain an optimum performance level. A chemical analysis of the water determines exactly how much is needed to neutralize the water.
We stock a large range of UV filters for the treatment of bacteria, etc. These ultraviolet rays destroy the DNA inside the cells of micro-organisms. It is a fast and efficient way to purify water.
UV water treatment offers many advantages over other forms of water treatment for microbiological contaminants. Most importantly, it does not introduce any chemicals to the water, it produces no bi-products, and it does not alter the taste, pH, or other properties of the water. In addition to producing safe drinking water, it is not harmful to your plumbing and septic system. Furthermore, it is easy and cost-effective to install and maintain.
