Last year Springbore conducted a home buyers survey on a house for a potential buyer. A full report was written up and a laboratory analysis was carried out on the treated water. During the survey a borehole test was carried out, which highlighted a poor yield. From a static water level to running out was around 120 litres with a recovery rate of <6 litres/minute. This wasn't enough water to successfully backwash the iron/manganese filter. Recommendations for improvements to the system including costs were sent to the customer which helped achieve a reduced purchase price for the property.
Today the upgraded system was installed using a mix of existing and new equipment. The water flow into the tank is limited to less than the recovery rate so as not to allow the borehole pump to dry run.
The stored treated water is then used to backwash the filter by way of a booster pump, normally open (borehole) and normally closed (clean water backwash) solenoid valves which energise to change state when backwash/rinse is in progress.
A new pressure vessel, water tank, booster pump, additional cartridge filter and UV steriliser were added to create the upgraded system.
