One of the biggest concerns for water operators is being able to provide a water supply of consistent quality. WEARS Australia have been working with water authorities in Australia and the Middle East to achieve this by successfully stabilising chlorine residuals in treated water reservoirs.

To achieve this stabilisation, WEARS Australia have been installing the ResMix Vital system. The highly efficient ResMix Vital, which incorporates an optional chlorine dosing system, requires only 10 percent of the energy used by alternatives, and is the only water management solution capable of preventing dead spots and short circuiting while generating homogenised conditions in the water column.

Achieving Reservoir Stability

WEARS Australia recently presented their paper on “Maintaining Chlorine Residuals for High Quality Water Supply,” citing the 12 months of performance of the ResMix Vital system at the Trangie Reservoir for the Narromine Shire Council.

12 Months of Performance

With ResMix Vital installed and the reservoir stabilised, instances of free chlorine exceeding minimum or maximum control points were reduced to 3% of readings, thus providing a consistent and stable reservoir with almost no sediment build-up or chlorine atomisation.

Doug Moorby, Manager of Engineering Operations for Narromine Shire Council noted, “..there is no doubt about it, the ResMix system works! Having started with a volatile and inconsistent chlorine residuals in our supply, we are now using the WEARS product to mix and dose our tanks. We are not alone in our experiences here. All I can say is that the results speak for themselves."

The ResMix Vital in The UK

Gurney Environmental, WEARS UK partner, is working with water companies to demonstrate the benefits of this system for use in the UK and have achieved DWI Reg 31 approval for use in Potable Water reservoirs.

Adding the Accel-o-Fac® system to South Gippsland Water treatment cells where traditional surface aeration was previously used allowed the corporation to significantly reduce energy use. The savings in kWh are excellent with one application saving 72% in energy compared to the previous year.

The fact that there is no associated sewage odours [with the Accel-o-Fac wwtp] meant that the system could be located relatively near to the village, and, after 10 years of use, no sludge removal has been needed.

These results show that the [ResMix] mixer is providing a fully mixed water column and preventing conditions for manganese and nutrient release from the sediments.

We are very pleased to be using this innovative management system in the reservoir at Pontsticill. This investment will improve the water quality for customers in the area and ensure they continue to receive a top quality supply of drinking water long into the future.
