April 2014


A word from Richard

Hello everyone. Wow there goes March and here is April. Must be having too much fun.

It’s no wonder we’ve been so busy lately! As I reported in the last issue of our Newsletter the shortest month of the year, February 2014 had our greatest turnover in a month ever and I just found out recently that our Gross turnover for the month of February 2014, was within a couple of thousand dollars of our whole first years Gross turnover 9 years ago. Wow that sure was a huge month and we’re looking forward to a breather this month.

We have noticed that the seasons have changed as we have started selling a few caravan filters lately as the Grey Nomads get their caravans all set up for the trip North. You can travel all over the countryside with your you beauty West Coast Water Filter Man filter and feel safe to drink the water where ever you are!

So what else is happening in April? Well we’ll be going to Fun as usual. We don't go to work, we go to FUN! and loving it. We’ve got World Health Day on the 7th, then school holidays and Easter and of course World Book and Copyright Day on the 23rd. Don’t forget that one. Then there is the 99th commemoration of Anzac Day on Friday the 25th. Lest we forget.

I’ll be looking forward to few days with the family and friends at Erin’s Uncle Alan’s farm at Cowaramup to chill out and soak up some of the South West activities. Cheers Cheers.

West Coast Water Filter Man office will be closed from 4.30pm on Thursday 17th April and back at 8.30am on Monday 28th April. And there goes April.

Well we hope you all get to enjoy an Easter break and some fun and relaxing times with friends and family and we’ll look forward to the next one. Don’t forget; “You Either Use A Water Filter Or Your Body Is One ®

Bushfires and water supply

During a bushfire your water supply and pressure can't be guaranteed.

If you live in or near bush land, fire is a real risk to you and your family. When developing your bush fire survival plan, you need to consider what you will do and what you will need. Start planning now for the next bushfire season, it's never too early.

Whilst the Water Corporation will always do all that it possibly can to maintain water supply, achieving that should be a bonus for property protection efforts rather than something that is relied upon.

If your plan is to stay and actively defend your home from fire, you need to have an independent water supply because public water supply and water pressure cannot be guaranteed. It is likely that you will lose water and power supplies during a bushfire.

The Water Corporation is prepared for bushfire season. However, they cannot guarantee that water pressure or water supply will be maintained in the event of a bushfire. Loss of electricity may cause pumps that transfer water to their storage tanks to fail. They may not be able to access water supply or respond to system failures in areas that are deemed by DFES or Western Power to be unsafe for their staff to enter.

For more information about preparing your family and home for bushfire season, visit the Department of Fire and Emergency website

Water facts


WD-40 was developed in 1953 by Dr. Norm Larsen, founder of the Rocket Chemical Company, in San Diego, California.

WD-40, abbreviated from the phrase "Water Displacement, 40th formula", it was originally designed to repel water and prevent corrosion and later was found to have numerous household uses.

Larsen was attempting to create a formula to prevent corrosion in nuclear missiles, by displacing the standing water that causes it. He claims he arrived at a successful formula on his 40th attempt. WD-40 is primarily composed of various hydrocarbons.

WD-40 first became commercially available on store shelves in San Diego, California in 1958.

Health Tip

This month's health tip brought to you by "Box 33" adaptive strength

Eat more vegetables and enjoy greater health.

Did you know that less than 10% of the Australian population is consuming the recommended daily intake of 5 or more serves of vegetables? One serve is equivalent to ½ cup of cooked or 1 cup of raw vegetables. 5 serves represents the minimum amount to maintain good health so it’s quite alarming that 90% of Australians are not even meeting this requirement.

So here are some novel ways to incorporate more vegetables into your daily diet.

• Aim to have at least 1-2 vegetarian based dinners each week.

• Incorporate vegetables into your snacks such as crudités with dip

• Enjoy a cooked breakfast on the weekend with grilled tomatoes, mushrooms and wilted spinach

• A freshly squeezed vegetable juice with a small amount of fruit to sweeten

• Add 1 cup of spinach or kale to a berry smoothie

• Ditch the sandwich for lunch and have a big colourful salad with grilled chicken or tuna

• Make pasta and rice alternatives with vegetables such as zucchini ribbons instead of spaghetti or grated cauliflower instead of rice

• Replace hamburger buns with 2 grilled/barbequed Portobello mushrooms

For recipes and more ideas search the internet. There are so many fantastic food blogs and websites with healthy recipes; you will be spoilt for choice.
