You either use a water filter or your body is one

February 2018


A word from Richard

Hello everyone.

Yippee we’re back, in 2018. Crickey there’s a real feel of change in the air, can you feel it too?

So February! What an interesting month for numbers! This is the last “4 x 4’s” February for another 823 years!!! This year February has 4 Mondays, 4 Tuesdays, 4 Wednesdays, 4 Thursdays, 4 Fridays, 4 Saturdays and 4 Sundays. Now isn’t that interesting?

I hope you’re all rehydrated and back into the swing of life and business again. Business is going great for us and we hit the road running with multiple new clients lined up waiting for our plumbers to come back from holidays. We’re pretty happy about that.

Progress on the Forrestfield Train Link is moving along steadily but nothing much to report on that at this stage. It’s just all about progress at their pace!

So we get to live on our beautiful property for a bit longer yet. I love the noisy black Cockatoo’s and all our trees and privacy.

So here’s Cheers Cheers to a fantastic 2018 and don’t forget: You either use a water filter or your body is one!

Super-adsorbent MOF

MOF captures twice its weight in water

Material chemists in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia have developed a superporous solid made up of a patchwork of metal ions and organic linkers (a metal-organic framework, or MOF) that can suck up to 200% of its own weight in atmospheric moisture. The technology, presented January 11 in the journal Chem, could be applied to regulating humidity levels, particularly in confined environments such as aircraft cabins and air-conditioned buildings.

"I am not surprised that MOFs surpass existing solids in their water capacity uptake," says senior author Mohamed Eddaoudi, of the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology. "MOFs' modularity, ultra-high surface areas, and large pore volumes, combined with the ability to control the pore surface functionality and pore size and shape, place MOFs as prospective candidates for energy-efficient and cost-effective humidity-control systems."

Permanently porous superabsorbent materials, with the combined requisite hydrolytic stability and significant water uptake, are challenging to make because most porous solids are either too dense or too reactive to water. Eddaoudi and his collaborators overcame this problem with their design of Cr-soc-MOF-1, a MOF made up of chromium ions linked together by carboxylate-based organic ligands that leave well-defined cages and channels for water to collect. The chromium ions are held in place by carboxylate moieties in a bidentate fashion, forming a rigid hexacarboxylate oxo-trinuclear chromium(III) cluster, ensureing that the resultant Cr-soc-MOF-1 adsorbent possess the required hydrolytic stability.

Water facts

Esperance Port

The Port's history dates from 1792 when French explorer D'Entrecasteaux explored the south coast of Western Australia and gave names to prominent locations around Esperance. Matthew Flinders raised the British Flag in the area in 1802.

The 1890s saw the discovery and subsequent gold rush to the Eastern Goldfields, which resulted in the building of what became known as the Town Jetty. In 1935 Esperance's second jetty, now commonly known as the Tanker Jetty, was completed.

On November 19, 1965, the Premier of Western Australia at the time, Sir David Brand, opened the first land-backed berth at Esperance. A second land-backed berth was constructed in 1972.

A dredging program carried out in 1988 saw the harbour deepened by approximately two metres from 11 metres to 12.8 metres. On February 26 2002, Premier Dr Geoff Gallop officially opened a new $54 million upgrade of the Port, which included a third land-backed berth being constructed, the Port basin being deepened to 14.5 metres, and the shipping channel to the new berth being dredged to 19 metres.

Health Tip

7 Science-Based Health Benefits of Drinking Enough Water.

7) Drinking More Water Can Help With Weight Loss.

Drinking plenty of water can help you lose weight. This is due to the fact that water can increase satiety and boost your metabolic rate.

In two studies, drinking half a liter (17 ounces) of water was shown to increase metabolism by 24-30% for up to 1.5 hours.

This means that drinking 2 liters of water every day can increase your total energy expenditure by up to 96 calories per day.

The timing is important too, and drinking water half an hour before meals is the most effective. It can make you feel more full, so that you eat fewer calories.

In one study, dieters who drank half a liter of water before meals lost 44% more weight, over a period of 12 weeks.

It is actually best to drink water cold, because then the body will use additional energy (calories) to heat the water to body temperature.

Customer testimonial

Aged and Community Services

Thanks For your very prompt response to my request for investigating the possible service/replacement of the water filtration system in our offices.

It was great to finally find a tradesman who not only gave a time and a commitment to complete a project but actually followed it through and got the job done with a minimum of fuss, It was fantastic.
