Water Quality

Help with rainwater test results


can anyone help me? I am doing a project on rainwater harvesting and I have a sample of rainwater to be analysed in a laboratory. I would like to know more about the results obtained, whether it is in the acceptable range.

Here are the results:

Phosphate: 3.34 mol/dm3

Nitrite: 0

Nitrate: 2.26 mol/dm3

I would also like to know if I can use the rainwater for bathing.

Water Hardness Assessment Issues - Bangalore, Advice Required!

Hi Experts,

We recently shifted toan apartment in Bangalore situated in Kundelhalli. The ground water is very hard in this area and the builder has installed a water softener plant. But we had not observed any major change in taste of the supplied water from the plant, even a water purifier company salesman measured the TDS value of the supplied water at around 800.

We contacted the apartment maintenance department and they measured the CaCO3 ppm of the water using an ion-exchange test kit. Samples were taken of the input, output from the filter plant and in apartment. In all the samples the CaCO3 ppm was around 400ppm, which we found surprising as the plant does not seem to be doing anything.Read More
