SO why not drink the best and purest water.

2.    Town Water (see below)

  •    Chlorine and chemicals
  •    The health risks and benefits

3.    Tank and Bore water (see below)

  •     To be safe from Bacteria Parasites and cysts that can make you sick
  •     Reduce hardness, iron & salt levels in bores

Frui and Vegetables4.    Not only pure drinking water BUT use for cooking, washing fruit and vegetable, tea & coffee, beer making, pets and plants.  Reduced chlorine showers/baths

5.    Save money and our environment

  •     No more wasted money on bottled water

2.    Town Water Supply

Tap water contains chlorine, lead, copper, pesticides, bacteria and cysts (giardia & crytosporidium) and many other pollutants that travel into our water supply dams.under bench-town water system

There are also many other chemicals added at treatment plants (up to 40 in total) such as:

  • Aluminium Sulphate – to help bind and settle sediments (linked to Alzheimer’s)
  • Copper sulphate – to combat algae growth
  • Ammonia – to extend the life of chlorine as it travels through kilometres of rusty and sludge filled pipes containing bacteria and cysts such as  giardia & crytosporidium
  • Chlorine alone has been directly linked to many forms of cancer, heart problems, blocked arteries, birth defects, asthma and skin irritations such as Exzema

  • Fluoride is also now added to many town water supplies and has links to reducing Brain IQ, Bone Strength, Kidney Function, Thyroid and Teeth Mottling

3.    Tank and Bore Water

Tank Water Filter OptionsTank and Bore water can become contaminated from harmful micro-organisms such as bacteria, parasites from bird and animal droppings, decaying leaves, atmosphere pollutants and from roof or plumbing materials.

The Microbiological quality of rainwater in tanks will be poorer than many public water supplies.

Problems

The buildup of these Bacteria Parasites & cysts can cause:
–    Giardia & crytosporidium – which cause Diarrhoea, vomitting, headaches, gas, abdominal cramps and weight loss.

Crytosporidium can be life threatening for the elderly, sick or those with a weak immune system

Bore Water can also have the added problems of high Iron and Salt levels which can make them unsafe to drink or use in the house
