Aluminum in Water


Source of Aluminum in Water: Aluminum (Al) is one of the most abundant metals, making up about 8% of the Earth's surface. Aluminum is used in the production of many home items including antacids and deodorants. Aluminum sulfate (alum) is also used as a coagulant in water treatment plants. Geological factors can increase the amount of water found in private wells through soil and water interactions. However, the EPA lists aluminum on their Secondary Drinking Water Standards list, viewing it as having few negative effects on human health. 

Symptoms of Aluminum: As human beings come into contact with aluminum daily, high levels of exposure are required to cause any adverse side effects. Short term exposure to high levels of aluminum in drinking water may lead to nausea and vomiting, mouth and skin ulcers. Long term exposure effects are unknown, and studies have been inconclusive. 

Filtration Solutions for Aluminum: A cation exchange cartridge can be used to remove aluminum from water, but hydrochloric acid or sulfuric acid must be applied for regeneration to remove the aluminum from the resin. While this is suitable for industrial water treatment applications, it is not recommended for domestic water treatment applications unless it is in the form of a cation exchange tank. Reverse osmosis systems will reduce aluminum in drinking water by more than 98%. Water Distillation, another option, will reduce the aluminum content of water by more than 99%.
