You either use a water filter or your body is one

February 2019


A word from Richard

Here we are in a New Year, 2019. We wish you all much happiness and success.

This is our first Newsletter for 2019. We sure hope you all had a wonderful, happy and safe Christmas and New Year. I managed to escape to Busselton with my partner Margaret staying at Mum’s for her 73rd Birthday and it was so relaxing.

Margaret and I went back for another stay at RAC Karri Valley Resort recently, only this time we took with us her two Grand Daughters. My mate Alan and his kids came too. We stayed in a Forest view cottage this time which was just divine. There is so much to do on site and in the surrounding townships etc. I certainly needed a holiday after that holiday as having two little ones constantly in need of attention and looking after was very tiring by Crickey. Such a lovely time all the same.

My son Sydney started his new job in a building company in sales, design and other roles while they settle him into his role as designer and estimator. I’m so proud of him to have lobbed such a great job earning fantastic money too. It certainly was reward for his effort to have landed so well.

The kids are back to school this week and my gorgeous daughter Leah is now in Year 11. How time flies. Even more exciting for her is that she has just bought herself her first car. Yep 16 years old and bought her first car. It’s a red Mazda 3. Such a great little car for her. She is so excited as you would be. Zoom Zoom Zoom she goes.

So take care on the roads around schools and remember to keep them well hydrated for better concentration levels. You too of course.

Until next time remember “You either use a water filter or your body is one”

West Coast Water Filter Man

Perth has the saltiest drinking water in Australia

Ian Wright | Jason Reynolds | Michelle Ryan | The ConversationPerthNow December 12, 2018 2:43PM

As the drought drags on, small communities in eastern Australia are turning to emergency water supplies. Often, this means bore water, which has prompted health fears over its high salt content.

As alarming as this is, drinking water right around Australia can have surprisingly high levels of salt. All capital cities have water salinity levels that are within the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines of 500 milligrams per litre (mg/L) – however the guidelines do not regard salinity as a health consideration, but rather as an “aesthetic” guideline, based on taste.

But Australians consume too much salt, and many need to reduce salt in their diet, so the sodium component of salt has key health implications. For people following low-sodium diets for health reasons, the salt in their drinking water may be important. It is generally recommended that people on low-sodium diets drink water with less than 20mg of sodium per litre, but Brisbane, Adelaide and most of Perth have saltier water than this.

What salinity means

Water salinity is commonly reported as “total dissolved solids,” which includes all organic and inorganic substances. “Salts” are soluble compounds of sodium, calcium, potassium, magnesium, chloride, sulfate and bicarbonate. Salts enter our waters from everywhere: the ground, the ocean, the air and living creatures.

We investigated drinking water in Australian capital cities, and some regional locations to compare salt content. When data was not publicly available for capitals, we approached water authorities for data on water salinity.

We found four major groupings for the capital cities:

The highest salinity water was in some Perth districts.

The second and third highest were in Adelaide and Brisbane.

Sydney and some supply districts within Perth (such as Tamworth Hill) have the joint second lowest salinity.

Melbourne, Hobart, Darwin and Canberra all share the lowest salinity.

Water facts

How many Litres of water does it take to wash a car?

A standard garden hose uses about 35 Liters per minute. This means you use 350 Liters of water with only a 10-minute car wash.

When you use a shut off nozzle on your hose, water does not flow continuously while you wash your vehicle, saving as much as 250 Liters per wash.

Use a bucket of water instead of an open hose. Using a bucket and a wet sponge or rag to rinse your vehicle will help you save water.

Fill your bucket with 10 Liters or less of water. Instead of washing your car down with a garden hose, rinse your car by using a wet rag or sponge dipped in clean water.

Health Tip

Weight loss, fitness and drinking filtered water.

Whilst drinking more filtered water is beneficial to your overall health; that in itself is not enough.

Other lifestyle changes in conjunction with drinking plenty of filtered water through out the day are imperative to healthy weight loss and fitness, including regular exercise and consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables.

Customer testimonial

Cambridge Insurance Brokers

We didn’t realise how poor our water quality was but should have noticed the effects on our kettle, coffee machine and other appliances.

It is scary to think we were also putting the same water into our bodies.

We would recommend the West Coast Water Filter Man in the highest regard to solve your water issues.

Don’t let your body be a filter any longer!
