Source Water and Their Related ECOsmarte Treatment in Horticultural Applications

 

Source Water Typical Treatment Flow Rates in GPM Pathogen Contamination Required Degree of Sanitation Means of Sanitation Typically Filtration + Glass Media Fertigation and Conditioning
Fresh Water from Well, Surface, Public water supply 5 -1200 Low to medium High Filtration to Copper Ionization Filtering solids, Adding nutrients, Wetting the water
Recirculating Water from Closed Irrigation Systems, Flood Floors/Benches, Gutters. 30 1200 Low to medium Medium to high Filtration w/ Copper Ionization, possible CO2 pH control As needed to adjust nutrients, surface tension and DO levels
Leachate from closed drip and overhead watering (typical for vegetables) Greenhouses, fields and hydroponics 5 60 GPM (with or without recirculation) Medium to high High; possible topical microbial Coliform and EColi kills Filtration w/ slow sand, Filtration w/ glass, O2 Oxygen Copper Ionization As needed to adjust nutrients, surface tension and DO levels
Runoff field water (tail water incl. differential) and coupled ponds from Overhead/drip irrigation, often collected in pond For Re-use Outdoors/greenhouses 5 60 High; Glass Media Filtration In slow sand filter, likely vault Medium to high, topical microbial w/ vegetables Coliform and EColi kills Glass Media Filtration, Oxygen, Copper Ionization, Possible H202 Injection (27%) As needed to adjust nutrients, surface tension and DO levels
Any runoff field water (tail water incl. differential) and coupled ponds from Overhead/drip irrigation, of For discharge or intermediate storage and re-use after further treatment Outdoors/greenhouses 5 60 TNTC Colony levels Low to medium Filtration (Glass) Oxygen Copper Ionization Possible CO2 pH control Possible H202 Injection (27%) Possible filtration (glass) on discharged water
