December 2018


A word from Richard

Hello everyone.

December and hot Summer days are upon us again and this means lots of functions fun and games.

On the first day of Summer my lovely partner Margaret and I attended ‘Equestrian in the Park’ down on Taylor Reserve Victoria Park. We checked in to the Equestrian Lounge and had lovely food and beverages served to us all day. Yep by Crickey it was a swim through. I’ve never been into the horse scene but I really enjoyed my day. I sure need lots of water and a recovery day on Sunday too oh boy….

My daughter Leah rides and at her fun and games day at the stables during the egg and spoon race she jumped off her horse and went crack as she rolled her left ankle rupturing her ligaments and was raced off to hospital by her Mother and spent a whole afternoon there. Crutches and the good old RICE principle is required but that didn’t stop her from having a day off school. Too boring staying home she said.

With only a few weeks left until Christmas our clients are already calling in to book in services beforehand so if you’d like your system serviced before Christmas please call Pete in the office ASAP to book it in as our service technician calendars fill up fast this time of the year.

Well here’s wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year.

We thank you for your support throughout 2018.

Please note that our office will be closed from 21st December 2018 to 7th January 2019.

Keep hydrated and remember; "You either use a water filter or your body is one."

Plasma water purification

Many of today's methods of purifying water rely on filters and chemicals that need regular replenishing or maintenance. Many plasma-based approaches are expensive, but a new class of plasma devices may change that.

Researchers at the University of Alabama in Huntsville have been studying a new type of plasma generator for water purification. The new generator pulses voltage signals to ionize gas at atmospheric pressure and produce many useful byproducts, including hydroxyl radicals, which cause a cascade of reactions that lead to purer water samples.

"We're finding ways to speed up the purification process," said Ryan Gott, a doctoral candidate in aerospace engineering at UAH who will present the research next week at the American Physical Society 71st Annual Gaseous Electronics Conference and the 60th Annual meeting of the APS Division of Plasma Physics, which will take place Nov. 5-9 at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland.

"In theory, if this technology can be developed in a real-world, practical system, it would be able to purify water at lower costs than current methods can," Gott said.

While the term "plasma" conjures images of superhot solar jets traveling through space, most plasma-based water purification approaches work through plasma's ability to generate reactive free radicals, rendering many compounds in the water inert. The plasma and ensuing chemical reactions release energy and chemical species that can kill even tough microcystin bacteria, one culprit in algal blooms that lurk in our water supply.

"The pulses are so fast that it doesn't change the temperature of the water," Gott said. "You can touch our plasma jet with your hand."

Water facts

Perth Dams

Traditionally Perth has relied heavily on our dams as a water source. Today, the water in our dams is no longer just made up of inflows from rain.

Perth's rainfall this winter is welcome but it has made little difference to our dam levels. While it may look like dam levels are increasing slightly during the colder months, this may not be the result of increased streamflow.

Water produced from deep groundwater and desalination is transferred into our dams for storage during periods of low demand so it is available when it is most needed in the hotter months. This will help ensure climate independent, year-round water production.

We use dams to move water around, including supplying towns in the Goldfields and Agricultural areas through the CY O’Connor Goldfields Pipeline.

Health Tip

Drinking water at a certain time maximizes its effectiveness on the body:

2 glasses of water after waking up - helps activate internal organs.

1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal - helps digestion.

1 glass of water before taking a bath - helps lower blood pressure.

1 glass of water before going to bed - helps avoids stroke or heart attack.

A closing thought

Food for thought

Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.
