Turbidity in water - please suggest how to overcome

Hi all,

Good morning.

We are using a one horse-power bore to pump water into our water tank which will be supplied to a RO-water plant ( reverse osmosis) to make the water potable.
Initially, the water coming out of the bore will be very clean but after a few minutes, there seems to be some mud coming out in the water.
So, we have stopped supplying this water to the RO-plant until the turbidity issue is resolved.

1) I request you to suggest how to overcome this problem.
2) Also, if I use alum to treat the mud in the water, will it going to effect the RO-plant filters? If so, what are the other alternatives?

Thanks in anticipation.

Look into a multi media depth filter or filter Z meida. I've used the multi media for lake water and the filter Z media here in Fla for sand. Both work great. With the use of alum, you should have some type of filtration prior to the RO system for sure.
