The Taumata Arowai (water regulator) establishment unit is looking to develop an acceptable solution for household point-of-entry type water treatment systems in New Zealand for use in rural/agricultural supplies. As part of this we are collecting information about the range of cartridge filter and UV disinfection systems currently available. It is our goal that the equipment compliant with this acceptable solution is widely available and economic whilst setting a standard that provides potable water with an acceptable level of risk. If your company currently sells drinking water treatment equipment of this type it would be helpful if you are able to provide some brief information about the products that you sell. The Taumata Arowai establishment unit are hoping to further develop cooperative relationships in the water industry as their work on the new water regulator progresses.
The acceptable solution will define limits of application of these units in terms of water quality. These limits are still being developed, and the input from this enquiry will assist in informing the limits that will be defined. It is expected a reasonably low untreated turbidity limit will be defined, likely in the range 2-10 NTU. Consideration will be given to the use of cartridge filters for both pre-treatment and for protozoa removal.
For household-sized installations, we are particularly interested in:
• The make/models of UV disinfection units that you sell. Please provide all models of a capacity likely to be suitable for this application. For these units:
Technical and commercial information provided from this enquiry will be incorporated in reports in a summarised form only, that will not allow individual suppliers to be identified.
The table below may make it easier for you to compile the information, however, information can be provided in other formats if preferred.
