You either use a water filter or your body is one

May 2018


A word from Richard

Hello everyone.

Here we are now in May and in May we can start planting Winter vegies. Yippee.

I took my Harley out early for a run to the Blackboy Hill ANZAC Service. It was so quiet and so many people paying their respects. It was very moving and emotional time for all attending. We are so lucky today in Australia. Lest We Forget.

Back to School go all the kids so the traffic will thicken up again. Remember to keep hydrated as this will aid in better concentration levels and a safer journey.

My daughter Leah just got back from an amazing action packed School Tour to New Zealand (North Island) for a Science and Cultural Excursion. Wow they sure got to do and see some fantastic things. NZ is known to be the extreme sports capital of the world and it sure wore her out. Such a lucky bunch of kids.

For some fun if you have a desire it is World Gardening Day May 6th. It’s on Facebook so it must be true! Oh well we’ll see.

So short n sweet this time but remember “You either use a water filter or your body is one”

Cactus roots inspire creation of water-retaining material

During rare desert rainfalls, cacti waste no time sopping up and storing a storm's precious precipitation.

Like all living things, cacti need water to survive. Yet they thrive in some of the world's driest places. The key is the plant's shallow, but extensive root system that quickly soaks up rainfall, which seldom penetrates more than just a few inches into the soil. During droughts, the roots dehydrate and shrink, creating air gaps that prevent water from escaping back into the soil.

Intrigued by these traits, Sang Joon Lee, Hyejeong Kim and Junho Kim wanted to create a durable material that could effectively absorb and store water, without changing other physical properties.

The research team sought to replicate the key features of the cactus root system. To imitate the cactus root and its outer covering, they made a material composed of cellulose fibers, agarose cyrogel and microparticles. Then, they made a cylindrical-shaped gel and freeze-dried it to form a structure that mimics the layered composition of cactus root epidermis.

Laboratory tests suggest that the resulting cactus-root-inspired material (CRIM) is capable of absorbing water nearly 930 times faster than it loses through evaporation. The researchers say the mixture of cellulose fibers, microparticles and cryogel is adjustable for particular needs.

For example, adding water-repellant microparticles to this system could produce CRIMs useful in oil separation and other oil-based engineering processes. They conclude that CRIMs could eventually have a host of applications in agriculture, cosmetics and medicine.

Water facts

The Tasman Sea (Te Tai-o-Rehua :Maori)

This is a marginal sea of the South Pacific Ocean, situated between Australia and New Zealand. It measures about 2,000 kilometres across and about 2,800 kilometres from north to south.

The sea was named after the Dutch explorer Abel Janszoon Tasman, who was the first recorded European to encounter New Zealand and Tasmania.

The Tasman Sea is informally referred to in both Australian and New Zealand as The Ditch; crossing the Ditch means travelling to Australia from New Zealand, or vice versa. The diminutive term "The Ditch" used for the Tasman Sea is comparable to referring to the North Atlantic Ocean as "The Pond"

Customer testimonial

Rams Home Loans, Canning Vale

Thank you Richard and his team.

We recently purchased a cold filtered water machine for my RAMS office and put in a chilled filtered water tap at home.

I honestly can say I don't know how we used to live without them both.

My staff and family absolutely love having cold filtered water on tap.

We all drink far more water now which is great for our health and it is so tasty and free of chemicals.

I am also saving so much money as I no longer have to buy bottled water.

Thanks again you were all so efficient, I wish I had purchased sooner.
