A word from Richard

Welcome to Winter everyone. It’s not so bad!

I hope you all enjoyed a nice day off work and avoided life’s hussle and bussle yesterday. I had a dark cold early start to the day at the gym and have been pottering around my 3 acre property for the rest of the day collecting fallen timbers for a nice bonfire. I also got in the good books by building wife and daughter a horse shelter for their horse named Kitty. Oh yeh the girls are happy and so yippee life is great.

This is it!!! The End of Financial Year again and a great time to make your staff happy with a new tax deductible water cooler system for the office. The more hydrated your staff are the better the concentration levels and that means greater productivity and they’ll be healthier too.

Hmmmm so what’s happening out there for you? Business is going along just nicely for us and we’re pretty happy we’re weathering the storm well. I hope you enjoy another fab Newsletter and I’ll be back in touch next month. Cheers Cheers.

It was a very sad month for me and many others that were blessed with having Brian Leaning-Mizen presence in their world. He died of a heart attack the poor fella. You will be dearly missed by many my friend. RIP

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

Common antibacterial triclosan found in most freshwater streams.

Most U.S. homes are full of familiar household products with an ingredient that fights bacteria: triclosan. Triclosan seems to be everywhere. When we wash our hands, brush our teeth, or do our laundry, we are likely putting triclosan into our water sources.

Triclosan is in antibacterial soaps, detergents, carpets, paints, toys, and toothpaste. These products can feel comforting to germ-wary consumers. However, these products are only slightly better at removing bacteria than regular soap and water. And in antibacterial soaps, triclosan may not add any benefit to removing bacteria compared to regular soap and water.

The problem with triclosan is that it kills both good and bad bacteria. Studies also show that it contributes to medically necessary antibiotics becoming less effective. Triclosan is also toxic to algae and disrupts hormones in animals. This can hamper normal animal development. The FDA is currently investigating its impact on humans.

Most of the triclosan is removed in waste water treatment plants. However, a U.S. Geological Survey found the antibacterial in nearly 58% of freshwater streams.

"What you use has an impact even though you're probably not thinking about it," says Monica Mendez. Mendez is an associate professor in the Department of Biology and Chemistry at Texas A and M International University. She is interested in triclosan-contaminated streams and rivers. These streams often serve as the water source for crops

"If a river happens to be a source of irrigation, could triclosan possibly get into our food?" Mendez wonders.

Water facts

Celsius scale of temperature measurement

There are 100 degrees between water freezing point and boiling point.

It is named after the Swedish astronomer Anders Celsius (1701–1744), who developed a similar temperature scale two years before his death.

The unit was known until 1948 as centigrade from the Latin "centum" translated as 100 and "gradus" translated as "steps".

Health Tip

How much should you drink every day?

Finding the right water balance for each of us is important.

This is based on our body size, level of physical activity, exercise and sweating, the local climate, and our diet.

A diet that is dry and high in proteins and fats creates a need for even more water to flush these foods healthfully through our system. The average person drinks only 4.6 servings/cups of water a day. That’s a bit shy, especially when most of us do not consume our share of fresh fruits and veggies.

Water drinking should be a habit, something we do without having to think about it. Only one third of us claim they drink eight glasses of water a day; 28% have three or fewer servings, and nearly 10% say they don't drink water at all.

The most frequent reason given for not drinking water is lack of time, as reported by 21% in a recent survey. Like anything, preparation saves time and allows us to engage in these healthier habits.

Prioritize water hydration. And during hot weather, drink 2 to 3 glasses more than usual. When we have a cold, or for many illnesses and symptoms, like headaches and allergies, it is helpful to hydrate the body fully with water and herbal teas.

We can know this by our urinary output, generally every couple hours during the day.

Customer testimonial


Hi Richard,

Just wanted to say thanks for organising the installation of my twin undersink filter and Culino mixer. I love it!

Troy was very friendly and very punctual which was great. He is actually the first plumber in all my years that has arrived at the time he said he would, and he also left no mess at all.

Thanks again
