September 2014


A word from Richard

Hello September. Oh wow, can you feel it? Summer is on its way and so is Christmas!!! Yes it’s true.

Aren’t these warmer mornings nice and especially with the sun coming up earlier! Great for getting up and doing some exercise before heading off into the working day.

I’ve been enjoying spending time converting our horse stable into a nice granny flat/Peaceful Retreat on my weekends. Lately I have had some veranda extensions done and new carpet and vinyl laid throughout. It’s coming along just nicely and a great spot for a movie night.

How are you all finding business out there at the moment? We are steady steady at the moment which is nice as Summer is just crazy busy and that’s when we’ll need another service technician to help out.

This month is Blue September; This is a nationwide awareness and fund-raising initiative about all the cancers that affect men – not just prostate and testicular cancer, but also bowel, lung, liver, pancreatic and other cancers. The campaign aims to raise funds for Australian Prostate Cancer Research and Australian Cancer Research Foundation charities to raise men's awareness of cancer and help them to reduce the risk of developing and dying from cancer by making better lifestyle choices and seeking help sooner rather than later.

Well I hope you enjoy another quick look at our newsletter this month and we’ll be in touch soon. See you all next time and remember, If You’re Not Using A Water Filter, Your Body Is One!!!

Where the river meets the sea

There is the potential to harness a significant amount of renewable energy, according to a team of mechanical engineers at MIT.

The researchers evaluated an emerging method of power generation called pressure retarded osmosis (PRO), in which two streams of different salinity are mixed to produce energy. In principle, a PRO system would take in river water and seawater on either side of a semi-permeable membrane. Through osmosis, water from the less-salty stream would cross the membrane to a pre-pressurized saltier side, creating a flow that can be sent through a turbine to recover power.

The MIT team has now developed a model to evaluate the performance and optimal dimensions of large PRO systems. In general, the researchers found that the larger a system's membrane, the more power can be produced -- but only up to a point. Interestingly, 95 percent of a system's maximum power output can be generated using only half or less of the maximum membrane area.

Water facts

The Royal Australian Navy (RAN) fleet is made up of 51 commissioned warships as of February 2014.

The main strength is the twelve frigates of the surface combatant force: eight Anzac class and four Adelaide class. Six Collins class boats make up the submarine service, although technical and manpower problems mean not all of the submarines are active at any time. Amphibious warfare assets include the dock landing ship HMAS Choules, the heavy landing ship HMAS Tobruk, and three Balikpapan class heavy landing craft. Fourteen Armidale class patrol boats perform coastal and economic exclusion zone patrols, and four Huon class vessels are used for minehunting and clearance (with another two commissioned but in reserve since October 2011). Replenishment at sea is provided by two ships, Sirius and Success, while the two Leeuwin class and four Paluma class vessels perform survey and charting duties.

In addition to the commissioned warships, the RAN operates the sail training ship Young Endeavour, the support vessel ADV Ocean Shield, and two Bandicoot class minesweeper tugboats.

The lion's share of the RAN fleet is divided between Fleet Base East (HMAS Kuttabul, in Sydney) and Fleet Base West (HMAS Stirling, near Perth). Mine warfare assets are located at HMAS Waterhen (also in Sydney), while HMAS Cairns in Cairns and HMAS Coonawarra in Darwin host the navy's patrol, survey, and small amphibious vessels

Health Tip

This month's health tip brought to you by "Box 33" Personal Training Perth

The power of deep breathing.

Deep breathing, otherwise known as diagrammatic, abdominal or belly breathing is the practice of slowing down your breathing and drawing oxygen through your nose deep into your belly. This is opposed to quick and shallow breaths into your chest, which is often what occurs when sitting at a desk all day, when you're stressed or have undertaken intense exercise.

The benefits of deep breathing are:

• Maximises the amount of oxygen supplied to the body and brain

• Slows down the heart rate and can lower/stabilise blood pressure

• Switches nervous system from the sympathetic "fight or flight" response to a parasympathetic "relaxed" state

• Aids sleep

• Improves mood and mental focus

• Aids recovery from exercise

Deep breathing is a powerful but more importantly a simple and free tool that can be done anywhere, any-time. A tutorial can be found on Youtube. Practice it everyday standing, sitting or lying down, when you're stressed, between/after bouts of exercise or before going to bed for general health and well-being.

Customer testimonial

Towerhill Estate Wine

I am thrilled with our new filter and very stylish tap. It is a delight to have clean water at good pressure and no drips and jugs required.

Can't believe I put up with the previous system for nearly 4 years.

Thank you Richard
