What’s So Important About Drinking Pure, Clean Water?
What is pure water? It is simply H2O – two parts hydrogen, one part oxygen. Sediment Filtration—Removes particulate matter such as sand, silt and rust particles.
Activated Carbon Filtration—Removes unpleasant tastes and odour, chlorine, THM’s, volatile organic contaminants, herbicides and
Reverse Osmosis—Water is forced under pressure through a special membrane, which removes up to 99% of dissolved solids such
as lead, copper, sodium, nitrates, radium mineral salts and bacteria.
Carbon Block Filtration—Removes organic chemicals and polishes the purified water for superior taste.
Ultraviolet Sterilization—This final stage ensures that any bacteria are destroyed before the water is dispensed into your bottle.
Independently Tested and Inspected—Water quality is monitored and tested periodically by an independent laboratory. Our water
system is inspected and maintained by a qualified technician.
Enjoy the Benefits of Purified Water.
Essential to Good health—Tastes so good you’ll enjoy your 6-8 glasses of water per day. With over 99% of contaminants found in
tap water removed, you won’t have to worry about their long-term health effects.
Delicious Drinking Water—Pure and healthy water that tastes great! The most economical beverage available.
Better Beverages—Coffee has richer flavour and less bitter taste while using 20% less grounds. Tea is brighter in colour and does not leave an annoying film in your cup.
Clear Ice Cubes— Expect clear, hard ice cubes that melt slowly, tastes better and leave no sediment in your glass.
Better Cooking—Enhances the tastes of foods! Brings out the natural flavours of vegetables, soups and pasta.
Protects Appliances from Damaging Scale—No scale build up in your tea kettle and coffee maker.
Perfect for all kinds of use: juices, baby formula’s; low sodium and weight loss diets, pets, aquariums, plants, photography, wine making and so much more.
Do we need the minerals in drinking water?
The subject of minerals in water is one over which there is much controversy. There is even disagreement among health authorities. Some inorganic minerals found in water can actually be harmful to human health. Minerals such as nitrates, cadmium and lead can be toxic in small amounts. No water treatment process can separate the harmful minerals from those that are not. Either all of the minerals are removed or they are left in.
To help you decide for yourself, consider the following information:
Minerals in water exist as INORGANIC minerals. This form is not nearly as biologically acceptable to the human body as are ORGANIC forms of minerals found in foods and quality mineral supplements.
Plants have the unique ability to convert inorganic minerals absorbed from the soil and water into organic forms that our bodies can use.
In food, these useful minerals are linked with proteins and natural sugars (e.g. Calcium lactate found in milk).
In water, the mineral exists in salt form (e.g. Calcium carbonate). Our bodies can use few, if any, of the minerals found in water. There are absolutely no minerals found in water that you cannot find in adequate quantities in the foods that you eat. An 8 ounce of glass of milk typically contains more calcium and magnesium than 5 gallons of water. Over 95% of the major and trace minerals ingested daily come from the foods that we eat. Tap water can be an unreliable source of minerals since water supplies vary greatly from place to place and even from day to day. Even if minerals in water were in good form, their amount is small compared to that found in foods.
As its name implies – is the reversal of the natural flow of osmosis. By applying pressure to the water solution of higher concentration (the incoming water), the flow of liquid is reversed. Under these conditions, the membranes still rejects the contaminants, but allows the fresh cleansed water to pass through.
Reverse Osmosis (RO) is a water purification technology that utilizes normal household water pressure to force water through a selective semi-permeable membrane that separates contaminants from the water. The purified water is collected in a holding tank and the contaminants are flushed away.
The process, originally designed to make seawater drink- able for the Navy, removes sodium, as well as lead, arsenic, nitrates, asbestos and a range of many other contaminants from household drinking water.
What Are My Alternatives?
Water Filters— Filtered water has passed through a fine strainer and/or activated carbon. While carbon filters reduce bad taste and odours like chlorine, most are not effective in removing contaminants like nitrates, lead, sodium, bacteria…and the list goes on, Bottled Water—Consumers today are seeing a wide variety of bottled water on the market. How do you know what you are really getting?
Spring Water—All of these bottled waters come from an underground source such as a well or spring. However, these waters may still contain many mineral salts, inorganic metals, and chemicals.
