Abstract: The aim of present work was to remove nickel from drinking water. Synthetic zeolite was chosen to reduce concentration of nickel below 0,02 mg/l, which is determined as maximum allowed value by law in drinking water. Model sample solutions were prepared. Regarding to the results of these measurements nickel removal efficiency in real drinking water samples was tested. The results showed that nickel could be removed by using NaCl modified synthetic zeolite below maximum allowed value of 0,02 mg/L. The presence of other metals has a minor impact on nickel removal.
