You either use a water filter or your body is one

December 2014


A word from Richard

Hello everyone.

Look out Christmas is just around the corner. Have you booked your staff luncheon yet because restaurants are filling up fast. This year we’re taking our team and partners to Darlington Estate Winery. You should check it out yourselves. It’s just divine.

We have two brand new unused cream coloured 5300 litre rainwater tanks for sale for just $895 Inc GST. Be quick if you want them as these won’t be here for long I’m sure.

After 10 successful years we recently investigated and invested in the possibility of changing our logo but thanks to many guru’s and supporters, 99% of people surveyed said our existing logo looks more professional than the new proposed logo so it’s here to stay and we’re very proud to say so too.

Well schools just about out for the Summer Holidays. Aren’t they lucky. This year our office will be closed from 4.30pm Friday 19th December to 8.30am Monday 5th January. We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and look forward to seeing you safe and sound back in the New Year. Our next Newsletter will be out on the first Tuesday of February.

Take care. Keep hydrated and don’t forget; “You either use a water filter, or your body is one!”

West Coast Water Filter Man

Perth scheme water

Raised iron levels

It has become more and more evident that Perth mains water in a range of areas is becoming much poorer quality when it comes to seasonal weather changes, this is due to raised iron levels I have seen in test results which is iron levels above 0.30mgl which is the amount needed to leave staining however not considered dangerous for human consumption. If you were to drive around the Perth suburbs and notice walls, hotel building and anywhere where sprinklers come into contact with you will see this staining.

The way to know if your water suffers from this is to view any outside wet areas of your property where water comes into contact with (Sprinklers, outside taps and showers) if it has left orange staining then this issue is affecting you. A great way to treat your issue is to treat the problem with water softening and filtration, a whole of house dirt filter and Water softener are ideal to treat problem, for ideal results an addition of a carbon filter is always beneficially for taste and chlorine removal.

A water softener will remove any iron not visible to the human eye (Soluble iron) which once exposed to oxygen will leave the orange staining along with iron it will also remove all the hardness which averages from 50ppm to 120ppm in test I have done. The dirt filter will remove any chelated iron (iron specs you can see in the water) which has to be removed before entering the softener and a carbon filter clarifies the water by removing contaminants, chlorine and any odours associated with your water.

The end result is fresh, clear, soft and great tasting water throughout the whole house which will not leave any staining if left to dry on a surface.

Water facts

What is the Integrated Water Supply Scheme?

The Integrated Water Supply Scheme (IWSS) is the system that delivers 289 billion litres of water each year to over 2 million people in Perth, the Goldfields and Agricultural region and some parts of the South West. It is the largest scheme we manage, and in 2013–14 water supplied into the IWSS came from the following sources:

18% surface water (from our dams - this water can also contain a proportion of water that originated from groundwater or desalination, as we bank water from these sources in our dams).

43% groundwater

39% desalinated seawater.

In future, less water will come from our dams and more from desalination and secure groundwater sources.

Health Tip

Get your body moving.

Take every opportunity you can to move your body. Take the stairs. Get off the bus one stop early. Ride a bike. Run after the kids. Get those endorphins pumping!

Remember to drink plenty of clean filtered water as it helps the body naturally replenish the supply of the neurotransmitter serotonin.
