Filtered water helps protect the body from disease and leads to overall better health. It removes the Cryptosporidium and Giardia parasites that exist in rivers and lakes and can cause intestinal illnesses in humans. It’s estimated that removing these from drinking water helps to reduce the risk of gastrointestinal disease by more than 33%. Filtered water is also important for children’s developing immune systems.

Other Common Elements Removed with Filtered Water include:

Arsenic: Tap water can contain dangerous levels of arsenic, a powerful toxin and carcinogenic that has been linked to an increased risk of several types of cancer.

Aluminium: Municipal water that is unfiltered can lead to an increased consumption of aluminium, a metal that has been linked to Alzheimer’s disease, hyperactivity, learning disabilities in children, skin problems, liver disease and more.

Disinfection by-products: DBPs are harmful elements that result from disinfecting water with chlorine, itself a powerful carcinogenic.

Fluoride: While fluoride is commonly associated with improving oral health, it can actually cause a wide range of health problems such as a weakened immune system and cell damage that accelerates ageing.

Water

Our High Performance Drinking Water System is fitted with high capacity filters that last twice as long in comparison with others.

It provides contamination free water that is especially pure because it has a 100% lead-free chrome outlet. It comes with the highest grade of a 5-stage ultra-pure filter system that removes 99% of the contaminants, and leaves your water healthy to drink and with a crisp, pure taste.

Features:

5 Stage Ultra Pre-Filter System

1st stage:

Uses a high capacity and high grade polypropylene filter to remove particles, rust and dust.

This ensures protection of the membrane system and extends its life.

2nd and 3rd stage:

A carbon block removes unpleasant tastes, chlorine, colours and cloudiness along with some common chemicals.

4th stage:

Uses the highest quality, high rejection TFC reverse osmosis membrane

This removes 99% of the Total Dissolved Solids and contaminants such as lead, arsenic, radium, viruses, fluoride, chromium, bacteria and much more.

5th stage:

Uses advanced coconut shell refining carbon.

The Total Contamination Removal Filter will remove any residual taste from the tank.

What about Bottled Water?

You may be surprised to learn that 40% of bottled water is bottled tap water! In addition to this, there are some other risks that stem from drinking bottled water:

Many of the plastic bottles themselves are created with a chemical called Bisphenol A or BPA, a synthetic hormone disruptor that has been linked to many health problems, including:

  • Learning and behavioural problems
  • Altered immune system function
  • Prostate and breast cancer
  • Risk of obesity
  • Early puberty in both genders

Bottled Water is the fastest growing segment of the entire beverage industry and it also happens to be one of the biggest polluting ones. The realization that bottled water is seldom of higher quality than tap water has brought the environmental aspect of the industry to new heights.

By filtering your own water at home, you will be doing your part to help the environment and reduce the massive amount of plastic sent to degrade at landfill sites. A process that takes at least 400 years.

It takes three times as much water to produce a plastic bottle than it does to fill it, and even recycled plastic water bottles require the use of petroleum in addition to the cost of transport for the recycling process.

A household with 2 adults should consume 6 litres of water everyday
50 cent a bottle – 3€ a day
365 days = 1095€ per year
5475€ over 5 years
an investment worth while

So what are some of the specific health benefits of drinking filtered water?

An increased intake of pure, healthy water will enhance:

  • Nutrient absorption

  • Weight loss

  • Skin hydration

  • Detoxification

  • Overall health

  • The Environment
