Acceptable Solutions

FILTEC has a range of Acceptable Solutions in various sizes to ensure small drinking water suppliers can provide safe drinking water in a practical, compliant and cost-effective way.

What are Acceptable Solutions?

Taumata Arowai has created acceptable solutions so particularly small suppliers can easily meet their obligations with ready-made water treatment options for varied water sources, qualities and volumes, with separate guides for Roof Water, Spring and Bore Water and Rural Agricultural supplies. These guides clarify what treatment is required and the complete solution must be in place to ensure compliance.

The new water services regulator, Taumata Arowai is dedicated to promoting supplier responsibility and ensuring suppliers meet their duty of care and regulatory obligations. Taumata Arowai is looking to partner with the water services sector and provide good practical guidelines and information to make understanding and achieving compliance easy. The goal of Taumata Arowai is to improve water quality across Drinking Water, Wastewater and Storm water.


How do our Acceptable Solutions work?

The first step is to identify the water source and determine the quality of the water through a standard laboratory water test. From here the following steps can be taken,

  • FILTEC Design form completed and supplied with water analysis
  • Water treatment system design created based on and sized for your requirements
  • FILTEC Partner engaged to provide installation and ongoing support
  • ?

What water treatment issues can it solve?

At the heart of all the Acceptable Solutions is disinfection. Disinfection ensures the water is safe to drink by preventing illness causing pathogens that can be present in raw water infecting people. Water analysis also ensures we create simple treatment steps to prevent any other harmful contaminants or undesirable taste, odour and visual aspects affecting water quality.

Common issues that are encountered are,

  • Rainwater:
