Thevipuram GTMS water filter project

Blue Wave Water Filter Installation for Thevipuram GTMS

Thevipuram GTMS is a school situated in the Northern province of Sri Lanka. The school had to function under a challenging condition due to the scarcity of pure water. Teaching-learning processes get interrupted due to it. Teachers and children at school found it difficult to survive with the bottle of water they brought from home. When they had to find water from the neighbourhood, they got distracted from their regular educational activities. It also, unfortunately, put them at the risk of developing waterborne diseases due to lack of sanitization and hygiene within the school premises. In order to overcome this situation, the Thevipuram GTMS water filter project was initiated with the assistance of PureHydro.

PureHydro Blue Wave was used for the Thevipuram GTMS water filter project. It is an industrial water filter that can purify up to 1500 L of water. It also can provide clean water for 150-500 people daily. Blue Wave can be used at schools, institutions, small-scale factories, hospitals, and hospitality to purify well water, tap water, or brackish water. It is equipped with several purification systems. UV purifying technology is one of the main technologies used. UV rays treat microbiologically unsafe water. They can penetrate through pathogens like bacteria, viruses, and cysts and scramble their DNA structure, avoiding further reproduction. UV filtration cannot remove physical impurities or bad taste from water; it can only deactivate living organisms in the water. RO filtration is another purifying technology used in Blue Wave water filters. Water is forced under pressure through a semipermeable membrane during this filtration to trap and remove harmful contaminants and dissolved salts in water. Carbon filtration technology removes harmful pathogens, chemical lead, arsenic, mercury, and other microbiological contaminants in water. Activated carbon can remove chlorine that gives an odd smell and taste to the water. Therefore it improves the esthetic quality of water. Sediment purification technology is also used to trap suspended solid particles from your water. Debris that wash off with water and rust flakes from water pipes may remain in your water and change the colour. A sediment filter will easily trap them. Along with these purifying technologies, a pressure pump is also used in the Blue Water filter to ensure a steady flow of water. The Thevipuram GTMS water filter project done by PureHydro made it possible for students and teachers to have clean water within the school premises.
