You either use a water filter or your body is one

March 2017


A word from Richard

Hello everyone.

Strange weather…. Summer is officially over and the heat waves are about to start!!! It sure is thirsty weather.

Gosh it seems like kids are always on holidays these days!!! Then again we do get a few Public Holidays in the first part of the year and I hope you’re all making the most of quality time with family and friends. Can’t wait for the next trip to Busselton.

You know I get it a lot that people say to me, “Oh I’m so sorry Richard but we can’t use you as we already have a water filter!” Well folks if you already have a water filter then that is just sensational as the health benefits are many, but we most certainly are your best option in Perth for having your existing system serviced by my amazing, friendly and professional team that would love to be of service to you so please think of us next time your filters need replacing!

SUPPORT LOCAL!!! Many of you may not be aware that we are quickly becoming one of the last owner operators left here in Perth due to Global domination of my industry and we’d really appreciate your support through these tough economic times. We all need to work smart and support local small business where ever we can if we’re to ride the wave and pop out at the other end in better economic times.

So keep hydrated on these swelteringly hot days and look after your pets too.

Always remember; You either use a water filter or your body is one!

Microbes altered by wastewater.

Wastewater from oil and gas operations -- including fracking for shale gas -- at a West Virginia site altered microbes downstream, according to a Rutgers-led study.

The study, published recently in Science of the Total Environment, showed that wastewater releases, including briny water that contained petroleum and other pollutants, altered the diversity, numbers and functions of microbes. The shifts in the microbial community indicated changes in their respiration and nutrient cycling, along with signs of stress.

The study also documented changes in antibiotic resistance in downstream sediments, but did not uncover hot spots, or areas with high levels of resistance. The findings point to the need to understand the impacts on microbial ecosystems from accidental releases or improper treatment of fracking-related wastewater. Moreover, microbial changes in sediments may have implications for the treatment and beneficial reuse of wastewater, the researchers say.

Water facts

How wastewater is treated

1. When wastewater enters a plant, the debris and large objects are removed by passing the waste water through specially designed filter screens – this material is disposed of at approved landfill sites.

2. Wastewater is transferred into tanks where solid matter sinks to form sludge.

3. The wastewater flows on to stage three which involves biological treatment. Here, diffused air provides oxygen for the processes that break down and remove any organic pollutants.

4. Finally, the wastewater enters our settlement tanks where any remaining micro-organisms and sludge sink to the bottom. From here, the treated water can be returned to the environment safely. Most of the sludge produced is then digested and conditioned to create a stable material suitable for recycling for agricultural uses - this is called biosolids recycling.

After wastewater is treated it will either be: Returned to the marine environment via ocean outfalls. Recycled and re-used to irrigate open spaces and recreational areas, supplied to industry, used to replenish our groundwater and allowed to infiltrate back into the ground, or evaporate.

Health Tip

It's important to drink water spread throughout the day.

It is not healthy to drink all the water at one time, just as it is not healthy to cut back on the amount of water you drink.

Try to pick three or four times a day when you drink large glasses of water and then sip water in between.

If you feel yourself getting thirsty you've already become dehydrated.

You must condition yourself to drink even when you're not thirsty.

A closing thought


“What fills the eye, fills the heart”

The things we focus on and let into our lives will undoubtedly be more present in our lives. If we focus on the beauty around us and how wonderful nature is, then we start to see more and more things in our lives as beautiful. They become part of what we love more and more.
