Overview of an Effective Water Treatment Program

There are six main factors that determine the effectiveness and reliability of any water treatment program.

  1. The appropriateness of the treatment program.
  2. The consistency of the system parameter control.
  3. The care taken in monitoring and interpreting results.
  4. The accuracy of assessing upset conditions.
  5. The speed of response to correct upsets.
  6. The shared determination by everyone involved to make the system work.

No program will be complete or totally effective without all of these items. One of, if not the most important factor, is Item 6. The success of a program can normally be traced back primarily to the dedication, determination and commitment of the plant personnel and the technical representative. An extra effort exerted by these people to understand the operation of the system and the ability of these people to work together are key factors to attaining the desired results.

Setting up the appropriate chemical program is also a crucial factor. A complete survey and analysis of the water quality, application, usage (quantity), and related pieces of equipment is a must. Based on careful consideration of this information, recommendations can be made for both chemical products and related equipment. It is not always most economical to select the cheapest water treatment program. There are many factors to take into consideration, including:

  • System and chemical compatibility
  • Possible system contamination
  • Ease and safety of handling the products

Once the program has been established, consistency must be maintained within the system. The greater the fluctuation in the system variables, the less effective the program will be. If all parameters are established and kept as constant as possible, they can be dealt with and compensated for to obtain optimum results.

In determining the consistency of any system, care must be taken by all associated personnel to monitor the system and related functions. Monitoring and testing must be done on a frequent and regular basis. A reliable technical service representative should carefully go over the testing results for interpretation. Plant personnel should also be educated in interpreting test results. After viewing the results, one must decide if changes are necessary. If changes are warranted, informed actions on how to prevent or correct a problem, not to cover it up, must be taken. Long term, as well as, short term water treatment program goals should also be assessed.

It is important to be very accurate in uncovering problems and upsets to prevent unnecessary work and alarm. When your car runs out of gasoline, you do not replace or rebuild your motor. Get to the heart of the problem as quick as possible and do not cut corners or "monkey-rig" to "get-by."

The response time to individual problems can prevent or increase further damage and /or headaches. The longer a problem is tolerated or over-looked, the more costly it becomes and the longer it will take to straighten out once it is addressed. Immediate attention to any and all situations promotes success and results.

With the proper emphasis placed on these six items, an effective water treatment program is assured, regardless of the size of the plant or systems maintained. Plan ahead, see it through, and follow-up your water treatment program and remember to select a reputable, reliable, experienced water treatment consultant
