A word from Richard

Wow did you just blink and miss it too??? That was April.

So here we are into some nice May weather patterns as mornings get cooler and darker as we all rise for the day. Don’t you just love the fresh morning smells? With chillier weather we usually don’t think to drink enough water so folks, remember to drink up and keep hydrated.

Did you manage any holidays last month? April has a lot being School holidays, Easter and ANZAC Day etc. We did manage a quick 4 day family holiday in Bali at an all-inclusive resort. The kids had some great activities and of course there were plenty of bars and restaurants to enjoy.

Don’t forget to spoil all the Mum’s this Mother’s Day. How about a nice cup of coffee in bed to start the day. Hopefully if the weather’s nice a picnic at the local park or a nice restaurant lunch to spoil your beloved Mother Whatever you do we love all you Mum’s. You do an amazing job and are a tower of strength to us all.

Business is still steady steady and we’re happy with that. A lot of businesses are battling along out there but are really happy to be helping a local owner operator being Thermo King West expand into new larger premises as they continue to grow. So good to feel the positive energy that starts from the GM and filters down. Great work team.

So here we go again, please enjoy a quick break to hydrate and check out this moths Newsletter; And remember, You either use a water filter or your body is one!

Bacteria to purify water

A University of British Columbia-developed system that uses bacteria to turn non-potable water into drinking water will be tested in West Vancouver prior to being installed in remote communities in Canada and beyond.

The system consists of tanks of fibre membranes that catch and hold contaminants -- dirt, organic particles, bacteria and viruses -- while letting water filter through. A community of beneficial bacteria, or biofilm, functions as the second line of defence, working in concert to break down pollutants

"Membrane treatment can remove over 99.99 per cent of contaminants, making them ideal for making drinking water," said project lead Pierre Bérubé, a UBC civil engineering professor who developed the system with support from the federally funded Canada-India research organization IC-IMPACTS.

Membrane water treatment is not new, but Bérubé says the modifications developed by his team, described recently in Water Research, produce an even more effective solution.

"Our system is the first to use gravity to scour and remove captured contaminants, which otherwise accumulate and clog the membrane. It's low-maintenance and as efficient as conventional approaches that need chemicals and complex mechanical systems to keep the membranes clean," said Bérubé. "The biofilm also helps by essentially eating away at the captured contaminants. You just open and close a few valves every 24 hours in order to 'lift' the water and let gravity and biology do their thing. This means significant savings in time and money over the lifetime of the system."

Water facts

Water loss

Simply breathing in and out uses more than 1/2 Ltr of water a day.

Even in the absence of any visible perspiration, approximately half of water loss occurs through the operation of our lungs and skin.

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!

Customer testimonial


Thanks Richard

For a great job from Troy installing my purifier in my new kitchen and the shower filter, too.

I'm hugely enjoying the stunning drinking water from the tap and everyone who tries it agrees it's the best ! The gas free shower is wonderfully healthy - why isn't it standard for all homes ??? One day.....
