Possible causes of turbidity are:
- Strong dirt entry
- Environmental influences (pollen, algae, insects, flowers, leaves etc.)
- Calcareous water
- Damage to the equipment
- Insufficient or incorrect cleaning / water care
- Pump running time / circulation too short
- Wrong dosing of chemicals
- Wrong amount of filter material
- Bad filter material
- and many more.
Recommendation for grey cloudiness:
Check the lime content of your water. However, lime in dissolved form can also be deposited as solid matter on the bottom of your filter. If the contamination lies under the filter material, the tank must be emptied and cleaned.
Recommendation for green cloudiness:
See Algae / Care
Recommendation for reddish cloudiness:
If there are iron and manganese components in the water, this often occurs with well water / deep well production, they discolour as soon as they come into contact with oxygen. We have special filters for iron and manganese separation. Please get in contact with us.
PureFlow is a fine filter to increase and maintain water quality. PureFlow is not suitable for cleaning systems that are already heavily contaminated.
