I installed my first lake water treatment system over 40 years ago and since then we have treated hundreds of lake water systems in the traditional manner, like the system in the above photo (link is below):
Chlorination and/or Ultraviolet rarely get to log 3! This is incredible technology that is revolutionizing water treatment around the world. Quantum Disinfection requires no contact time – just “contact” with the media (pictured to the right). The media is contained inside a small 10” cartridge that flows up to 10 GPM. If you need more, you just add a “parallel” system.
Now, in some cases it is possible to eliminate the chlorine, but here is the limitation of Silecte™, or for that matter the Charged Membrane Filter: The water needs to be clean and clear and not contain algae or other matter than can “blind” the media.
Iron, manganese, tannin, turbidity, algae and other organics have to be removed BEFORE the CMF or Silecte™ Quantum Disinfection, so there is no “one system fits all” application. You do need to understand that with ultraviolet, the bacteria are still alive but rendered harmless by virtue of eliminating their ability to reproduce, but they are still “dead men walking.” With CMF, they are trapped. Literally, they are “in jail” and cannot escape due to the zeta charge.
With Silecte™ Quantum Disinfection, the electrons are literally “sucked out” of the microorganism and they cease to exist. They aren’t dead men walking or in jail – they are totally and completely destroyed! I don’t know about you, but if it were my water, I think I would prefer that the little critters were just totally gone.
