- The sieve filter (or lamella filter): it will capture large particles such as plants, small rock fragments or various sediments. It can also retain sand and microparticles, depending on the size of the sieve mesh, but is less effective in these cases. They require regular emptying because they quickly accumulate particles or sludge.
- The disc filter: it is often used for industrial or agricultural irrigation facilities, and allows a large flow of water. Nevertheless, its filtration is a bit coarse.
- The cartridge filter: this solution is interesting, but it has the disadvantage of requiring frequent cartridge changes with significant costs in terms of equipment and intervention.
- The self-cleaning filter: it has the advantage of integrating an automatic cleaning system, which avoids dismantling the filter. In addition to this technical and economic advantage, the filtration is fine and efficient enough to offer optimal water quality.
The use of Hectron industrial water filters for individual boreholes If you wish to drill an individual water well on one of your properties, the choice of the associated filtration is essential. A good filtration solution must guarantee a filtration threshold adapted to your water, but also a certain ease of use of your installation by avoiding manual interventions and filter changes. This is the case with the Hectron automatic filters, which also have other advantages. Individual water drilling: a real advantage Drilling for water is often an advantageous alternative to city water. Indeed, it is a source of significant savings because the resource is free. Moreover, borehole water can be considered safe and viable, as it contains no chlorine or other chemical substances. Finally, individual drilling is even more interesting if your applications require large volumes of water. This is the case for car washes, watering systems or geothermal heat pumps, or even for the daily use of large families. Even if the construction of a borehole has a cost, it is often considered that the investment is quickly profitable in comparison with its life span (often several decades). However, it remains to control the maintenance costs of the borehole and therefore to find low-cost filtration solutions. Why and how to filter water from an individual well? The water from wells and boreholes is very often loaded with sand, mud or clay and various particles. This is inherent to this water collection technique and does not indicate the quality of the pumped water. Nevertheless, your water needs to be cleaned of these suspended elements. For this, there are several methods, more or less interesting:
