A word from Richard

Hello everyone.

Well April sure was a quick month. No surprises there, we were only here for half of it! With School holidays, Easter and Anzac Day all piled into April, we all decided to have the whole two week period off to enjoy good times relaxing with family and friends.

Erin and I took the kids down to stay on a family member farm at Cowaramup for a nice peaceful break. We did however make the time to do our yearly charitable water cooler and water supply for the Town of Bassendean’s Anzac Day which was a great success. Lest We Forget.

Today May 6th is International No Diet Day. Well how about that and of course don’t forget to spoil all the Mum’s this Mother’s Day. We’ll all be down at Gavey Park enjoying our usual family day out with the Mum’s.

It sure is darker and much chillier in the early mornings now and with chillier weather we usually don’t think to drink enough water so folks, drink up and keep hydrated. Cheers Cheers.

See you all next time and remember, If You’re Not Using A Water Filter, Your Body Is One!

Under sea, fresh water supply

Scientists have discovered vast reserves of fresh water located deep beneath the ocean that could prevent a global water crisis.

A study published late last year reveals that an estimated half a million cubic kilometres of low-salinity water are buried beneath the seabed on continental shelves around the world. The water is located off the coast of Australia, North America, China and South Africa.

"The volume of this water resource is a hundred times greater than the amount we've extracted from the Earth's sub-surface in the past century since 1900," says lead author Dr Vincent Post of the National Centre for Groundwater Research and Training (NCGRT) and the School of the Environment at Flinders University. Dr Post says that while scientists knew of freshwater under the sea floor, they thought it only occurred under rare and specific conditions.

"Fresh water on our planet is increasingly under stress and strain so the discovery of significant new stores off the coast is very exciting. It means that more options can be considered to help reduce the impact of droughts and continental water shortages," Dr Post said. These reserves were formed over the past hundreds of thousands of years when on average the sea level was much lower than it is today, and when the coastline was further out, Dr Post explains.

"So when it rained, the water would infiltrate into the ground and fill up the water table in areas that are nowadays under the sea. "It happened all around the world, and when the sea level rose when ice caps started melting some 20,000 years ago, these areas were covered by the ocean," he said.

Dr Post says that these aquifers (underground layers of water) are protected from seawater by the layers of clay and sediment that sit on top of them. The aquifers are similar to the ones below land, which much of the world relies on for drinking water, and their salinity is low enough for them to be turned into portable water.

Water facts

Over 1400 ships have been wrecked on the coast of Western Australia.

This relatively large number of shipwrecks is due to a number of factors, including:

A long and very difficult coastline with very few natural harbours.

At certain times of the year powerful storms and gales are very common. These winds are normally on-shore.

A long 'cyclone season' rendering all sea travel hazardous and many harbours ineffectual in providing a safe haven.

The inability to accurately measure longitude until the late 18th Century and the tendency to reduce their travel time by keeping their ships in the "Roaring Forties" for as long as possible saw many ships fail to turn north for the Indies at the right time; As a result many were wrecked on the coast of Western Australia.

Health Tip

This month's health tip brought to you by "Richard Scholes" "The" water filter man

If you think you need to be drinking more, here are some tips to increase your fluid intake and reap the benefits of filtered water:

Have a glass of filtered water with every snack and meal.

Add a flavour you enjoy; you're likely to drink more liquids if you like the way they taste.

Eat more fruits and vegetables. Their high water content will add to your hydration. About 20% of our fluid intake comes from foods.

Keep a bottle of filtered water with you in your car, at your desk, or in your bag.

The best way to keep check on your level of hydration is monitoring urine output. The motto here is, "Don't go for gold!" When fully hydrated your urine should be clear and odourless.

Customer testimonial

Wicked Web Design.

I love the sink-top water filter and Shower Filter form Richard "The West Coast Water Filter Man".

Richard is great to deal with and I couldn't imagine living without my water filters now that I know how good and convenient they are to use.
