SpectraPure’s Complimentary 5 Point Assessment Can Help Save Marine Life!

Imagine!

Imagine spending your hard earned savings on the best water filtration system, exotic corals and fish, and most gorgeous reef tank you could find. It quickly becomes your family’s pride and joy as you have spared no expense in making sure everything you purchased was top of the line. A few months after set up however you notice something is not right and as you look closer you see that your corals are dying! 

How can this be?

You bought the best of the best! You have even purchased SpectraPure’s spare filter kits, with dates clearly marked on your calendar for replacement. 

 

 

All too often…

Situations like this seem to “appear out of the blue” however, if you haven’t yet received your complimentary 5 Point Assessment, chances are the problem may have existed well before you even installed your RODI system.

SpectraPure’s SpectraCare team is often called to the rescue for situations like this!  Situations that could have easily been avoided had our customers booked a complimentary 5 Point Assessment. 

Incoming sediment, dissolved solids, chemicals, water temperature and water pressure all play a significant role in how well your top of the line filtration system performs on startup and play an even bigger role in how your system continues to perform over time.

Let’s take a look at how SpectraPure’s complementary 5 Point Assessment can save the day!

Your Ultimate Guide to a Healthy Reef Tank;

Before Getting Started Provide Your Zip code:

As the local water for each geographical area differs substantially, we need to ascertain your local zip code. If your incoming water source is municipal, from a well, or a cistern, this can play a key role in the amount of pre-filtration required to produce the desired quality of RO and DI water that your precious marine life needs to thrive.

Step 1: Evaluating Your Incoming Source Water

Water hardness, chlorine levels, chemicals and other contaminants can all take their toll on your RODI filtration system. Knowing what your incoming water contains, helps us safeguard your investment and keep your system performing at its peak no matter where you live.

To measure the total dissolved solids or hardness levels of your incoming water we recommend using a TDS Meter. Most of our RODI systems include TDS meters, however, if you require a stand alone meter we also have those available for purchase here>> 

To measure your incoming chlorine levels, it’s important to allow your tap water to run long enough to flush out any water that has been sitting as chlorine can dissipate quickly and throw off the accuracy of your reading. Once you have flushed your tap water thoroughly, please use a chlorine test kit that you can purchase at any local pool supply.  

To determine the amounts of lead, chloramine, chemicals and other contaminants in your water supply, we recommend that you acquire a Water Quality Report from your City and upload it here prior to your 5 Point Assessment.

Step 2: Assessing Your Incoming Water Pressure 

Most of our systems included an incoming water pressure meter (gauge). However if you are wanting to evaluate your incoming water pressure prior to purchasing an RODI system, a stand alone water meter is also available for purchase. 

If your incoming water pressure is too low, you will need to add a booster pump to increase the pressure to your system. And, if your water pressure is too high, this can damage your RO membrane. In cases where water pressure is too high, we recommend a water pressure regulator. 

Calibrating your water pressure to your production requirements, is key to the longevity and performance of your system.

Step 3: Calibrating to Your Production Requirements

If you require 90 gallons or more per day, let us know and we will make sure you are equipped with the right system for the job!

In addition, ph and total dissolved solids can affect production rate and need to be accounted for. By allowing our experts to work hand in hand with you, we will fine tune your system requirements to your environment for maximum performance.

Step 4: Pre or Post Filtration Requirements

Do you have high levels of metallic and chemical contaminants in your source water? Adequate pre and post filtration can insure that your precious marine life not only stays alive, but THRIVES! Our 5 Point Assessment will help to ensure the best performance of your RODI system. Regular filter changes, are imperative  to ensure the ongoing health of your reef tank and marine life. For those who live in areas with higher levels of lead, chloramine or high levels of hardness, it is vital to account for this and calibrate your system to adequately accommodate for these types of pollutants, during your 5 point assessment!

Step 5: Product Features – Automated or Manual Operation & Add on Kits

Finally, SpectraPure’s add on kits allow you to maximize both the possibilities and full capabilities of your RODI system.
