October 2019


A word from Richard

Hello everyone.

Well what a big weekend that one was. The Queens Birthday for one.

Grand Final Long Weekend too. I was happy it was a non Victorian team that was in the Grand Final. It wasn’t a very exciting spectator viewing game being such a walk-over by Richmond but I guess all credit to the team on the day.

It was also Royal Show opening weekend. Did you go? I haven’t been for many years. My kids are all grown up now and off living their own lives so all good by me.

We had a huge bonfire and party at Margaret’s place on Saturday night. It was great to have good friends and plenty of nice food and drinks to share while the dam was lit up. There was 12 months of tree and garden refuge from her 5 acre property all piled into that dam. It is still smouldering away today but safe to be doing so.

The extra long weekend I had in Newcastle recently catching up with mates I met at age of 25 travelling around Australia was so much fun. There are so many pubs in Newcastle and a fantastic mature age culture of going out to live band music to socialise, drink and eat. I had the best time ever and can’t wait to return.

So here comes October and boy oh boy there are a lot of Librans in my world having birthdays this month including myself. Hope you all have a great month.

Always remember; You either use a water filter or your body is one.

Circulation of water in deep Earth's interior

An important role in geodynamics

The existence of water in deep Earth is considered to play an important role in geodynamics, because water drastically changes the physical properties of mantle rock, such as melting temperature, electric conductivity, and rheological properties. Water is transported into deep Earth by the hydrous minerals in the subducting cold plates. Hydrous minerals, such as serpentine, mica and clay minerals, contain H2O in the form of hydroxyl (-OH) in the crystal structure. Most of the hydrous minerals decompose into anhydrous minerals and water (H2O) when they are transported into deep Earth, at 40-100 km depth, due to the high temperature and pressure conditions.

However, it has also been reported that some hydrous minerals, called dense hydrous magnesium silicates (DHMSs), may survive in the deeper part of Earth's interior if the subducting plate is significantly colder than the surrounding mantle. DHMS is a series of hydrous minerals which have high stability under the pressure of deep Earth's interior. DHMS is also referred to as "alphabet phases": phase A, phase B, phase D, etc.

Until recently phase D (chemical composition: MgSi2O6H2) was known to be the highest pressure phase of DHMSs. However, Tsuchiya 2013 conducted first principles calculation (a theoretical calculation method based on quantum mechanics) to investigate the stability of phase D under pressure and found that this phase transforms to a new phase with a chemical composition of MgSiO4H2 (plus stishovite, a high pressure form of SiO2, if the system keeps the same chemical composition) above 40 GPa (GPa=109 Pa). This predicted phase has been experimentally confirmed by Nishi et al. 2014 and named as "phase H." The theoretical calculation by Tsuchiya 2013 also suggests that phase H finally decomposes into the anhydrous mineral MgSiO3 by releasing H2O by further compression.

Water facts

Whale Migration off the W.A. coast

Each year thousands of humpback whales make their annual migration. They leave the feeding and breeding grounds of the Southern Ocean near Antarctica, and travel to the warm waters of the Kimberley region where they give birth to live young.

They suckle their calves, in the protected waters of Camden Sound Marine Park, the “maternity ward” for around 35,000 humpback whales. Calves are nurtured in the tropical waters while they build up strength for the 3000km+ journey back to the Antarctic.

As they are often travelling with a calf on the southern migration, they tend to stay much closer to the shore than they do when heading north. The whales follow the continental shelf, hugging the coast as they travel south through the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, playfully breaching, diving and showing off their water-skills.

Health Tip

Dehydration Dangers : Toxic overload

Water helps our bodies to get rid of waste through sweat and urination, so a lack of adequate hydration can lead to increased Toxicity. This can cause us to feel generally unwell, as well as increase the risk of kidney stones and urinary tract infections. Water is also essential to digest our food and helps prevent constipation. Remember, feeling thirsty means you're already dehydrated so don't wait until then before you take a sip.

Customer testimonial


Yes theses water filters are amazing. Been talking about getting one for years and finally got fed up of the filter jug and the refill cartridges. Love the water filter on tap. Thank you to Richard and Troy and the rest of this amazing team. Don’t wait any longer - just do it!

A closing thought

A dangerous drug

The medical evidence is clear and mounting. It's no exaggeration to say that bitterness is a dangerous drug in any dosage and that your very health is at risk if you stubbornly persist in being unforgiving.
