A word from Richard

Hello everyone.

We are officially into Winter now and isn’t it just beautiful?

Maybe not so for the four new lambs we have and one still due! Crickey it must be chilly for them without much wool the poor little fella’s. They’re so funny to watch as they run around chasing each other and jumping about. Life is good.

We hope you all enjoyed a wonderful WA Day weekend off. The weather was fantastic to be outdoors. I got the hammer swinging, the hand saw going, the ride on lawn mower and chain saw out, crickey, even got on the end of a shovel. Life on the land is always busy and I love it.

Our office and workshop is on the same 3acre property that we live on here in High Wycombe and being close to the new Forrestfield Link Train Station sure is getting exciting as building ramps up. The big drilling machine is onsite and being put together. That is just amazing how they can drill under a City etc, and put train lines through. Just amazing.

Oh it’s end of financial year time again for tax deductions!!! Be quick to book in an office water cooler to keep staff and clients well hydrated and happy. Great tax deduction and one that just keeps on giving.

I hope you enjoy a short read and a glass of filtered water and remember; You either use a water filter or your body is one! Take care. Cheers Cheers.

West Coast Water Filter Man

Water-based, recyclable membrane filters

Membranes comprised mostly of water, that self-assemble in water have now been developed by scientists. They can filter out particles based on size, and can be easily disassembled.

Separation technology is at the heart of water purification, sewage treatment, and materials reclamation, as well as numerous basic industrial processes. Membranes are used to separate out the smallest nanoscale particles and even molecules and metal ions. Prof. Boris Rybtchinski and his group of the Weizmann Institute of Science's Department of Organic Chemistry have developed a new type of membrane that could extend the life of a separation system, lower its cost and, in some cases, increase its efficiency as well.

The membranes Prof. Rybtchinski and his group have created may be produced in different ways, with different materials, and they come together in water and contain water as a major component (the membranes are akin to hydrogels). The group's first-generation membranes were made of unique molecules that organize themselves into the membrane material. This property also enables the membrane to be easily recycled, and the particles trapped in the separation process to be reclaimed. The membranes can separate particles based on size, from one to several nanometers.

The second-generation membranes also contain a second self-assembled polymer layer, thus broadening the range of applications for this technology. These new membranes can sustain high pressures and are capable of purifying water from poisonous heavy metals and organic molecules, showing, for the first time, that self-assembled "aqua materials" can be used for demanding industrial application.

Water facts

Water Molecule Structure

Water is a tiny bent molecule with the molecular formula H2O, consisting of two light hydrogen atoms attached to each 16-fold heavier oxygen atom. Each molecule is electrically neutral but polar, with the center of positive and negative charges located in different places.

Each hydrogen atom has a nucleus consisting of a single positively-charged proton surrounded by a 'cloud' of a single negatively-charged electron and the oxygen atom has a nucleus consisting of a eight positively-charged protons and eight uncharged neutrons surrounded by a 'cloud' of a eight negatively-charged electrons.

On forming the molecule, the ten electrons pair up into five 'orbitals', one pair closely associated with the oxygen atom, two pairs associated with the oxygen atom as 'outer' electrons and two pairs forming each of the two identical O-H covalent bonds.

Health Tip

A cosy night in, good for the heart.

A good book or movie, a bottle of red wine a block of dark chocolate and a glass of filtered water before bed.

Customer testimonial


Just to let you know that my wife spoke really highly of the man who came and swapped the filters today, Derek - great stuff.

As a result, book us in for our annual filter replacement.

Kind Regards,

Mark Humphreys

A closing thought

"Water is H2O, hydrogen two parts, oxygen one, but there is also a third thing, that makes it water and nobody knows what it is."
