SO why not drink the best and purest water.
Town Water (see below)
Chlorine and numerous chemicals
The health risks and benefits
Tank and Bore water (see below)
To be safe from Bacteria ,viruses ,Parasites and Cysts that can make you sick
Reduce hardness, iron & salt levels in bores
Not only pure drinking water BUT use for cooking, washing fruit and vegetable, tea & coffee, showering , pets and plants.
Save money and our environment
No more wasted money on bottled water
Don’t discard wasted plastic bottles in our environment
Much better tasting water

Why Filter Your Water Continued
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.
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
WIKI – Drawbacks to Water chlorination
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
WIKI – Fluoride Toxicity
Tank and Bore Water
Tank 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.
The buildup of these Bacteria Parasites & cysts can cause:
– Giardia & cryptosporidium – 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
