You either use a water filter or your body is one

July 2015


A word from Richard

Hello everyone.

It’s a new financial year yippee. Let’s hope consumer confidence picks up and people start spending again.

Do you have a shower filter? Oh they’re so good. It is like showering in rain water. Warning from manufactures: Perth water has a lot of silts/sediments and high levels of copper and lead in it which causes filters to block prematurely so we urge you to reverse your shower filter on a monthly basis for optimal effect and flow rates. If you leave it too long the cartridge becomes so absorbed with contaminants that it swells making it very difficult to open and service.

David and Goliath Battle. Yes it’s true. West Coast Water Filter Man is now one of the last remaining owner operated water filtration companies left in Perth. Why are we still here and going from strength to strength? You’re not a number in a system to appease shareholders, you’re a V.I.P and we care about each and every individual clients needs with a friendly reliable and informative service team. Customers are not an interruption to our work. They are the reason for our work. We thank you all for to choosing to deal local and supporting us over the many years.

In October this year I will be crewing for my good mate Alan Hamer who will be riding 200KM through Western Australia over 2 days in The 2015 MACA Ride to Conquer Cancer - and we need your help. Every donation made to his Ride is invested into the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research, fuelling ground-breaking research into conquering cancer in our lifetime. Your generosity could save someone's life TODAY! Please donate to support this vital research. This article can be found at conquercancer.org.au Click on this link to find out more.

So keep warm. Keep hydrated, yes especially through Winter. And we’ll back next month. Don’t forget; You either use a water filter, or your body is one! Cheers Cheers.

Faster, more durable water filters:

For faster, longer-lasting water filters, some scientists are looking to graphene --thin, strong sheets of carbon -- to serve as ultrathin membranes.

Graphene's unique properties make it a potentially ideal membrane for water filtration or desalination. But there's been one main drawback to its wider use: Making membranes in one-atom-thick layers of graphene is a meticulous process that can tear the thin material -- creating defects through which contaminants can leak.

Now engineers at MIT, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals (KFUPM) have devised a process to repair these leaks, filling cracks and plugging holes using a combination of chemical deposition and polymerization techniques. The team then used a process it developed previously to create tiny, uniform pores in the material, small enough to allow only water to pass through.

Combining these two techniques, the researchers were able to engineer a relatively large defect-free graphene membrane -- about the size of a penny. The membrane's size is significant: To be exploited as a filtration membrane, graphene would have to be manufactured at a scale of centimeters, or larger.

Water facts

Our polluted Seas.

Death and disease caused by polluted coastal waters costs the global economy US$12.8 billion a year. The annual economic impact of hepatitis from tainted seafood alone is US$7.2 billion.

Plastic waste kills up to 1 million sea birds, 100,000 sea mammals and countless fish each year. Plastic remains in our ecosystem for years harming thousands of sea creatures everyday.

Over the past decade, an average of 600,000 barrels of oil a year has been accidentally spilled from ships, the equivalent of 12 disasters the size of the sinking of the oil tanker Prestige in 2002.

Health Tip

Winter hydration

Water is vitally important to our health and well-being all year round, even in winter when you might feel less inclined to drink it! In fact, we may even have more of a requirement in winter due to being in heated rooms and cars so much of the time, as this can really dehydrate us.

You may notice that your skin is often more dry in winter than it is in summer and our heating systems can be one cause, along with reduced water intake. So drink up!
