Giardia Lamblia Water Treatment


Source of Giardia Lamblia in Water: Giardia Lamblia is a single-celled protozoan cyst. It is found in animal and human feces. People swimming or playing in creeks or rivers are at risk for swallowing the cyst, as well as hikers and campers who drink untreated water. People relying on untreated surface water may also swallow the parasite. International travelers may also be at risk when drinking untreated water. 

Symptoms of Giardia Lamblia: Giardia lamblia symptoms include diarrhea, fatigue, and cramps. Symptoms can last 2-6 weeks, and those coming in contact with the infected person are also at risk. The symptoms can lead to severe dehydration; elderly, pregnant women, and infants should drink extra fluids to avoid serious side effects. 

Filtration Solutions for Giardia Lamblia: Most municipal water suppliers will use some type of disinfectant to reduce giardia, including ozone. Ozone appears to be very effective against the cysts when utilized in the chemical oxidation disinfection process, instead of chlorine. Ultrafiltration and reverse osmosis all effectively remove giardia cysts. The most economical and widely used method of removing giardia is mechanical filtration with a filter that has a nominal 1 micron pore size. Solid carbon block filters, ceramic candles, pleated membranes, or string wound sediment filters at a 1 micron size will also eliminate the danger. UV systems can be another great option, disabling the parasite and preventing it from harming humans. Because giardia most often affects hikers and campers, they should always use a handheld UV treatment system before ingesting surface water.
