Big Blue Filtration System
Also referred to a “Point-of-Entry” or “Whole House” Filtration System
Big Blue water filters work as point-of-entry (POE) systems, meaning they filter water as it enters a home’s plumbing system. This type of treatment provides chemical free filtered water to every faucet and water source in the house. Filtering water through a whole house water filter eliminates the risks of showering in contaminated water.
Some Advantages of using a Big Blue Descale Filtration System:
- Friendly to the environment.
- Can be used for domestic and industrial applications.
- Supplies pre-filtered water to every tap in house.
- Reducing chlorine and chemicals in water supply.
- Removes sand, silt, slime, rust, mud and other suspended solids.
- Removes contaminants that cause water to smell unpleasant, taste poor and take on unusual colors.
- Siliphos prevents scale and stops corrosion.
- Require no electricity.
Big Blue Water Systems Are Easy To Maintain And Upkeep Costs Are Minimal.
Big Blue Filters will need to be replaced every 6 months to 12 depending on the type of filter, your feed water quality and water usage volume.
Replacement Filters for a basic 3 Stage Big Blue Filter System
Stage 1 –
The Sediment Filter removes visible particles such as rust, mud, dirt and any other floating particles from the water.
Stage 2 –
The Carbon Block filter is the next in line defense for any chlorine of organic molecules which might have got through. It also has a 5 micron filter ability.
Stage 3 –
Siliphos is an economical and reliable water treatment system for portable and industrial water. It consists of a glass-like polyphosphate silicate spheres and dispenser. Siliphos prevents scale and stops corrosion. As a rule of thumb one can say that 1mm of scale on the heating coils of a boiler, increase the energy cost by 15%. Siliphos forms a thin protective layer on the inside of pipes and metal parts. The film or layer is microscopic in thickness and will not build-up with time. All components used in Siliphos are 100% pure food grade materials and comply with FAO/WHO standards.
Hard Scale, i.e. calcium carbonate cannot so easily be removed by Siliphos. Here the advantage is again that Siliphos will prevent further scaling up.
Big Blue Descale Units are intended for municipal water filtration and limits apply to water quality and quantity. Have your borehole water tested before installing a Big Blue Descale Unit to ensure that it is the right solution. It is important to note that the volume of water put through the unit as well as the quality of the water, will greatly influence the life time of the filters.
