A word from Richard

Hello everyone.

Another Election Year and oh boy what a mess as we’re looking at another hung Parliament. I only hope that now it is over business will get back to normal with people lifting the pause button and getting back to the business of doing business again. Oh well let’s see what happens as life goes on. Enjoy the ride.

We are in the thick of Winter alright with dark chilly early mornings. It does make getting out of a nice warm bed early to be active with recommended daily exercise a bit harder but then again perseverance and commitment deliverers a healthy body and mind and yippee also that hot summer body and nice new clothes.

School holidays are upon us again and wow don’t they come around fast? It’s been a busy weekend already running kids here and there in our very busy lives. I will be looking forward to going to the movies to see the new Tarzan movie with my kids. I really feel like we need three day weekends nowadays. Life is just far too busy.

Business is steady which is always good in this slow economy but stock-take needs to be done this time of the year and we all hate that job but the sooner it’s done the better. Hope you all got your tax deductions put through in time.

Although it is still a bit chilly remember to keep hydrated with some nice filtered water and don’t forget; You either use a water filter or your body is one!

Bye for now Cheers Cheers.

Purifying tap water.

Tracking aluminum used to purify tap water.

Scientists have developed a new analysis method that uses magnetic fields to quickly and accurately measure the concentration of aluminum used to purify tap water. These findings can potentially be used in developing efficient and environmentally-conscious coagulants for water treatment.

A Kobe University research group including Associate Professor Maki Hideshi (Center for Environmental Management), PhD candidate Sakata Genki (Graduate School of Engineering, Department of Chemical Science and Engineering, currently employed at Central Glass Co., Ltd.) and Professor Mizuhata Minoru (Graduate School of Engineering) have developed a new analysis method that uses magnetic fields to quickly and accurately measure the concentration of aluminum used to purify tap water. These findings can potentially be used in developing efficient and environmentally-conscious coagulants for water treatment. The findings were presented on May 29, 2016 at the 76th Japan Society for Analytical Chemistry Symposium.

In order to provide clear, safe tap water it is necessary to remove particles called colloids from raw water. These particles are very small, between nanometer order and micrometer order in diameter. Polychlorinated aluminum is used as a coagulant in the water treatment process to collect and dispose of these particles. However, aluminum ions can be toxic for fish and inhibit plant growth. The Japanese Water Works Law specifies that aluminum concentration in water must be limited to below 0.1ppm (1:10,000,000).

Various hydrolyzed species of aluminum ion can be detected in water. Until now the "ferron method," involving pigments and absorption meters, has been widely used to calculate the concentration of these compounds. However, this method has some disadvantages: the analysis takes several hours and the results often contain errors.

Water facts

Environmental Impacts of Bottled water.

Spring water is extracted from underground aquifers upstream from where the water surfaces. This disrupts aquifer flow, affecting flora and fauna.

Most bottled water is packaged in PET(polyethylene terephthalate) plastic bottles which are derived from crude oil. It can take up to 3L of water to produce 1L of water.

Transportation of bottled water around the world requires burning of fossil fuels.

Although plastic bottles are recyclable, many end up in landfill and take up to 1000 years to break down. When littered they often end up in the sea where they break up in small pieces, killing marine life that mistake them for food

Health Tip

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

Gwelup

Just wanted to let you know that we were most impressed by the service that Troy gave us to solve the taste in our R/O water filter.

He is an absolute credit to the business and his attitude and persona are top class.

Thank you for your help and also, thank you to Troy for all he did to help us enjoy our water.

Alan and Niki Morcombe

A closing thought

The Power of Positive Thinking

"We have the choise whether we are beaten by change or whether we use it as a positive force for new experience. We should never underestimate our capacity to change society."
