The human body is about 70% water and is the second most vital nutrient. It flushes out toxins, regulates our temperature, prevents dehydration, promotes good health, facilitates weight loss and dissolves the body’s waste products. Therefore it is vital that you consume good quality water. By definition, it is H2O – two parts Hydrogen, one part Oxygen. That’s it – nothing else! No odour, colour or taste!
Water supplies from the aquifers are certain to contain some of the following: pesticides, herbicides, fertilisers, other chemicals, minerals, bacteria, viruses, cysts and other toxic materials.
Water suppliers (including municipal supplies) are regulated to supply a standard of potable water, which is governed by WHO (World Health Organisation) and NHMRC (National Health and Medical Research Council).
When choosing to drink treated water, there is either filtered (spring) water or purified water. And there is a vast difference in the quality of both these types of water!
Let’s do a comparison of the two different styles:
Example 1 – Spring water
Most people imagine spring water comes directly from way up in the mountains. This is not so! There are many thousands of springs, which feed creeks, rivers and dams, or go directly into underground aquifers. These springs carry substances that may be on the ground or already in the soil, as they seep through the earth. Manufacturers of bottled water must meet health standards as previously mentioned, which means they have to be filtered to meet these standards.
We must remember that this water is constantly replenished from rainfall which seeps into the aquifer to feed the springs. The ground, on which the rain has fallen, can contain elements which have to be filtered to make the water safe to drink.
Example 2 – Bottled Water
The best quality water is purified water. Let me explain – a simple filter is sediment removal and carbon absorption (to remove any colour, taste and odour).
A purified water system utilises a filter (as above) with an addition of a Reverse Osmosis Desalination Membrane, to further remove more of the contamination including dissolved salts. A typical Desalination Membrane removes all contamination, down to 0.0005 of a micron (1 micron is 1 millionth of a meter). This is finer than cigarette smoke. Reverse Osmosis membranes are the ultimate mechanical filter, straining out virtually all particle matter, turbidity, bacterial, micro-organisms, pesticides, herbicides and molecules of heavier organics.
With the use of ultra-violet sterilisation at bottle washing points, bottle filling locations and inside storage tanks etc. This is the ultimate system of bottled water production.
Our system is professionally designed and monitored by the designer to guarantee that the purity of water we manufacture and deliver far exceeds the criteria needed to meet all standards required.
Remember “Your body is the filter for what you put into it!”
