Hello,

I am Praveen from Chennai (11km from coastal region) I have a 2 month old baby.

The TDS level of borewater was 1250ppm, so we deployed a RO plant for my apartment of 108 houses. The output of RO plant is 125ppm.

Please advise if I can use this water with some UV filter for my baby. Let me know whether I need to test the RO output for any essential minerals? Do I have to test if it still has harmful content like lead, mercury, nitrate ,etc ?

Thanks in advance

Hi,

I am from Chennai. I live in a gated community with individual houses. Unfortunately in our house, the location chosen for the septic tank is wrong (we guess that ground below septic tank is rocky) and hence natural soak-away is not happening. Our septic tank gets filled up very soon. We are emptying the septic tank through sewer lorry every 3-4 months whereas our neighbours have not used sewer service for past 2years.

Hello,

I am from Chennai and live in an apartment of 24 houses. Recently we found out a foul smell in our borewell water and cleaned the borewell completely using an air compressor. After cleaning we pumped out the water for 2 weeks and did not use it. We gave the water for chemical/microbiological analysis before using it.

Following are the results

Odour - Objectable 

Colour (TCU) < 5, PH Value - 7.8

Conductivity  1214 Us/cm2

Turbidity -3.5 NTU

TDS - 825 mg/l, Total Hardness - 915 mg/l

Carbonate hardness - 41mg/l

Hi,

20 days ago we dug a borewell 170ft deep, 5" diameter. There is about 145ft of water in the bore. We installed a 1.5hp monoblock compressor pump- Suguna. The air pipe from the pump is CPVC for about 10ft and then 0.5" hose all the way down to about 164ft (50m). The delivery pipe is a 1" hose 164ft deep. At the end of the hose is a PVC nozzle provided by Suguna which is 3ft. All together the pipe depth into the bore is 164+3 = 167ft.
