Title: Is your drinking water good enough


1
Is your drinking water good enough?
  • What can you do about it?
  • Find out.

2
What is Reverse Osmosis?In order to understand
Reverse Osmosis, we need to know..
  • What is Osmosis?
  • The natural tendency of a solvent liquid, such as
    water, to pass through a semi-permeable membrane,
    that allows the passage of the solvent but not
    the dissolved solids, from the side of the
    weaker concentration to the more concentrated
    side . Without added pressure, a solution divided
    in such manner will undergo Osmosis, in order to
    equalize the concentration of the two sides.
  • In Reverse Osmosis, by means of applying pressure
    on the side with the heavier concentration of
    dissolved solids, the tendency to equalize the
    concentration of solids is reversed, hence the
    name Reverse Osmosis or RO.
  • By applying pressure, the water with higher
    concentration of dissolved solids is forced to
    pass through the semi-permeable membrane, or
    simply membrane, that prevents the vast majority
    of solids to pass through, delivering water of
    dramatically reduced Total Dissolved Solids or
    TDS and as a result, of the highest purity.
  • Some of the TDS found in water are fluoride,
    arsenic, lead, chlorine, pesticides,
    petrochemicals, hormones, cysts viruses just to
    mention a few.
  • No other method is as effective in removal of
    TDS as the RO method and for that reason it is
    used in all large scale water purification
    plants. In the case of the large scale plants,
    the membrane density is designed to deliver the
    acceptable level of TDS, as if the membrane grade
    was overly tight, the delivery rate would not be
    sufficient to keep with demand, therefore the
    average TDS reading in municipal varies according
    to location and source of water.

Municipal water
  • Whilst municipal water treatment plants do clean
    the water to acceptable levels, that in itself is
    not always a guarantee it will arrive at the
    point of use (tap) in the same quality. Many
    factors in the water distribution system, such as
    rusty pipes etc. contribute to adversely
    effecting its quality.
  • News Update According to a recent news release
    at an American Water Works Ass'n workshop, EPA
    field engineers reported that although the water
    leaving a municipal treatment plant may comply
    with all US EPA criteria, events occurring in the
    water distribution system after water leaves the
    plant can lead to significant spikes in
    contaminant levels.
  • Case histories were reported in which
    deterioration of pipe walls have caused drinking
    water levels exceeding tens and thousands of
    milligrams per liter for iron and copper and
    exceeding hundreds of micrograms per liter as
    well for arsenic, lead, zinc and manganese well
    above levels considered safe for consumption, the
    release stated. Dated February 11, 2004, Water
    Tech Online news.
  • All the more reason to protect yourself with a
    quality water purifier.

What lurks in drinking water?
  • The natural filtration systems that water used to
    go through in the past are now becoming polluted
    and water is being increasingly effected as a
    result. Among the dissolved solids can be found
    many chemicals, prescription drugs, naturally
    occurring solutions, poisons cysts viruses such
    as
  • Anti-biotics anti-depressants effecting the
    immune and nervous systems.
  • Fluoride responsible for dental fluorosis,
    crippling skeletal fluorosis, immune system
    deficiency, negative effects in bone, tendon,
    muscle, skin, cartilage, lungs, kidney and
    trachea. .There is a large natural fluoride belt
    starting from Western Turkey, going through
    Iran-Iraq-Afghanistan-India-Thailand and
    finishing in China
  • Arsenic effecting skin circulatory system,
    risk of cancer.
  • Lead delays physical/mental development, suspect
    for ADT
  • Chlorine contains thrihalomethanes causing
    liver, kidney or nervous system problems and
    increased risk of cancer
  • Pesticides accused for causing immune
    deficiency, cancer and speeding the ageing
    process.
  • Petrochemicals responsible for a variety of
    immune system effects.
  • Cysts and viruses (depending on the water source
    and location) just to mention a few.
  • Hormones leaching in the waterways from sewerage
    treatment plants.
  • To grasp the reality of contaminants in drinking
    water , their source and side effects, one HAS to
    visit the following link to a US EPA website

The solution?
  • A quality water purifier will ensure adequate
    protection from the nasty pollutants and provide
    you and your family with safe drinking water.
  • Having any purifier does is not a guarantee of
    quality. One has to engage in some research to
    successfully choose the right purifier for their
    needs and situation.
  • The choice will depend on your needs,
    expectations as well as water source quality.
  • Twin and triple purifiers with Polypropylene (PP)
    and Carbon block cartridges remove chlorine,
    odour, some organic chemicals but DO NOT remove
    TDS.
  • Reverse Osmosis or RO purifiers are equipped with
    the PP and carbon block cartridges and have a
    membrane filter to successfully remove up to 98
    of TDS.
  • If your water source is a well or tank, where the
    water has not undergone sterilization treatment
    then a RO purifier equipped with UV sterilizer is
    a MUST. The UV sterilizer will successfully
    destroy any cysts and viruses that may be present
    in the water.
  • When using Reverse Osmosis, a mineral cartridge
    installed just before the faucet (tap) is
    recommended to replenish the essential minerals
    that were filtered by the membrane along with the
    nasty TDS.

Choosing a purifier
  • When it comes to choosing a purifier it is an
    arduous chore. There are enough varieties,
    models, and systems to confuse even the most
    devoted researcher.
  • The criteria the purifier should be judged upon
    are
  • a) quality first and foremost the purifier MUST
    deliver quality water or it has failed its
    fundamental role. No looks, low cost,
    convenience, or any other reason should be
    considered. After all it is of benefit to your
    health.
  • b) construction the material its made of, will
    determine and effect the quality of your water
    and ultimately your health. Choose a natural
    material like food grade stainless steel that
    will not adversely effect your water. Plastics
    and rubber have no place in something your body
    absorbs on a daily basis. Purifiers made of
    plastic rubber will eventually need to be
    replaced due to the breakdown of the materials
    and become landfill.
  • c) capacity the purifier should be able to cope
    with the demands and serve your needs. A good
    flow rate is an important feature of a good
    purifier. Most ROs are burdened with a inadequate
    flow rate as a result of the rubber in the tank.
  • d) Function a reliable purifier that will not
    breakdown leaks due to rubber/plastic
    degrading, or rust in the tank shell. RO tanks
    with rubber, even food grade rubber, should be
    avoided as they at the very least adversely
    effect the taste and odour in your water making
    it un-palatable. Often a non food grade rubber
    (black colour) is used with undesirable effects
    in water. This is the reason a carbon block
    cartridge is installed post-tank in an attempt to
    control odour and taste. With time the rubber
    brakes down and the rubber particles contaminate
    the cartridge rendering it useless and adding to
    the cost of replacing consumables.
  • E) Economics a cheap purifier is NOT always the
    most economic. A long lasting purifier is the
    most economic. Being the most important item in
    your household it should be chosen wisely and
    with your health in mind.
  • F) Warranty is vital. If the manufacturer offers
    a long warranty, it is evident they have faith in
    the quality of their product and its worth
    considering.

Downside of plastics
  • When you eat or drink things that are stored in
    plastic, taste it, smell it, wear it, sit on it,
    and so on, plastic is incorporated into you. In
    fact, the plastic gets into the food and food
    gets into the plastic and you
  • According to Dr. George Pauli, Associate Director
    of Science Policy, FDA Office of Food Additive
    Safety, the regulations mandated in 1958 assume
    that all plastics migrate toxins into the food
    they contact. Migration is the movement of free
    toxins from plastic into the substances they
    contact in this case its your food.
  • How is it made?
  • In a nutshell, plastic is made by combining
    monomers into polymers under great heat and
    pressure in a process called polymerization. Each
    manufacturer has its own proprietary formula for
    each plastic. And each uses a variety of
    additives such as plasticizers for flexibility,
    UV filters for protection from sunlight,
    antistatic agents, flame-retardants, colorants,
    antioxidants, and more. Heavy metals such as
    cadmium, mercury, and lead are common additives.
    There are also chemicals used to facilitate
    production such as mold releases, and countless
    other toxic chemicals regularly added to plastic
    consumer goods without our knowledge or approval.
  • The unsolicited financial burden on society
    manifests itself as increased taxes to finance
    municipal curb side recycling programs, landfill
    space, and incineration. It also increases health
    care and insurance costs as a result of its
    incineration polluting the air, water, and food.
  • Water Stored in Plastic
  • Water bottles are made from various types of
    plastic   polycarbonate (PC), polyethylene ter
    phthalate (PET), Polypropylene (PP), high-density
    polyethylene (HDPE), low-density polyethylene
    (LDPE), polyvinyl chloride (PVC or vinyl), and
    others To reiterate, they all migrate to some
    degree.
  • Bisphenol-A (BPA) is a monomer used in the
    synthesis of PC plastics, epoxy resins, and
    composites, as well as a heat stabilizer in PVC.
    The list of products containing BPA is long. Some
    rigid containers such as water and baby bottles
    are made of PC. The popular Nalgene water
    bottles are made of Lexan brand PC.
  • .In the year 2000, Consumers Union (CU) tested
    water from five-gallon PC plastic bottles for
    BPA, They found from 0.5 ppb to 11 ppb in water
    samples from eight of the ten 5-gallon jugs.
  • As consumers, we always look for ways to maintain
    the status quo of our modern lives. However, the
    only logic I can see in the regulation of food
    contact plastics is profit at the expense of our
    health, the economy, society, and environment.
    You neednt be a polymer scientist to know that
    plastic shouldnt contact food. What is essential
    though is a firm standing in reality and a good
    grip on logic.
  • Make your point by choosing the natural, not the
    nasty alternative

Waterstream or no Waterstreamthats a question
  • Many spend a small fortune on RO purifiers for
    their tropical goldfish without raising an
    eyelid.
  • Some spend more beautifying their car than
    providing clean water for them and their family.
  • A set of good golf clubs can buy 3-4 quality
    water purifiers.
  • Yet, when it comes to providing the most vital
    element to our wellbeing, clean water, they
    engage in some serious penny pinching.
  • The following is for those who think
    WaterStream is uneconomical

10

WaterStream Vs bottled watereach set of filters
cleans 8000lt of waterwhich equals 400 x
20ltbottles. Now you can use clean water for
more than just drinking.
  • More economical
  • Better quality water
  • No heavy bottles to carry
  • Convenient
  • Fresh, uninterrupted water at your fingertips
  • No waiting for deliveries
  • No water stored in plastic
  • Drinking, cooking, tea, coffee, shakes, now will
    all taste so much better with purified water
  • More expensive
  • Questionable quality
  • Heavy loads to carry
  • Inconvenient
  • Stored for ages
  • Waiting for deliveries
  • Stored in plastic
  • Some water bottles were found to have been filled
    straight from the tap.

13
This is why bladder/diaphragm tanks fail
  • RUBBER the common denominator in all RO tanks
    (except the WaterStream RO tank).
  • The cause of leaks, rust (due to moisture/leaks),
    poor pressure/flow rate, rubber taste/smell,
    breakdowns, post tank cartridge contamination,
    slime/microbial growth,
  • Rubber bladder dissected, taken from steel shell
    tank that had rusted due to leaking bladder.

14
is more
economical
as
  • The minute you purchase your second purifier or
    tank (and you will have to, if its not a
    WaterStream) .
  • .you have paid too much
    for an inferior product !

15
because ..
  • Is
  • forever!

  • your water is our life
