Water that is too high in salinity to be labeled as potable water, but too low in salinity to be labeled as seawater, falls into the category of brackish water. Brackish waters contain significantly lower levels of dissolved minerals and salts than sea water and typically has higher levels of dissolved solids in comparison with ground waters. Brackish water reverse osmosis feed water typically has Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) levels measured between 1,000 and 15,000 ppm or mg/L. Typically these TDS impurities create water that is very hard to use as is in many applications. In regards to well water, generally fresh groundwater can mix with more briny water and produce brackish water. This brackish well water if not treated correctly, can damage home infrastructure, irrigated agriculture or other applications where better quality water is needed.
Aqua Clear manufactures and specializes in brackish water reverse osmosis systems from 500 to 1,000,000+ gallons per day.
