Description

Colour and turbidity in water are two different ways water quality is measured, although they can be related. Here's a breakdown:

  • Colour: This refers to the hue of the water, caused by dissolved organic matter like decaying plants or industrial pollutants. It doesn't necessarily impact safety, but highly coloured water can be unappealing.

  • Turbidity: This describes the cloudiness or haziness of the water due to suspended particles like clay, silt, or algae. High turbidity can harbour bacteria and affect the effectiveness of disinfection treatments.

     

    The Connection:

    • Organic matter can sometimes contribute to both colour and turbidity. For example, decaying leaves might colour the water brown and also create a cloudy effect due to tiny particles.

    So, what does it mean for your water?

    • Colour: Generally not a safety concern, but can be aesthetically displeasing.
    • Turbidity: High turbidity can indicate the presence of harmful bacteria and may require treatment before drinking.

    How to address them:

    Low to moderate levels can be addressed by  sediment prefiltration , however higher levels  may need a backwashing treatment system such as Filter Ag .

    We recommend you contact us after you've done a water test so we can advise accordingly.
