Water can contain heavy metals, sediment and unhealthy chemicals that have either been added to the water or have found their way there by mistake.
Right through the ages, drinking water has been treated. And depending on where you stay, the climate and the quality of the water all determine how it is treated. Often, chemicals like chlorine and chloramine which are used to rid the water of bacteria and disease are added.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in the US confirms that “dichloramine and trichloramine are chloramine compounds sometimes found in and around indoor swimming pools, which cause skin, eye, and respiratory problems”.
It goes without saying that we should be removing all harmful chemicals and other impurities from the water we drink. It’s pretty easy to reduce chlorine levels with a simple water purifier, but chloramine compounds aren’t as easy to deal with. To remove this chemical, it first needs to be separated into two separate chemicals, and few water filters can do this.
The problem lies with standard carbon filters only being able to remove small amounts of chloramines, if any. With this in mind, we have formulated a proprietary media bed that does more than just filter your water. Our range now includes the Chlora+ ‘dual-purpose’ water purifier that can extract the chlorine as well as the difficult-to-remove chloramines from your water.
Additionally, we also produce other media beds such as GAC, KDF and Riolyte, that are capable of removing chloramines. These media beds each have their own unique set of benefits and are designed for specific water conditions and end results. Aside from removing unwanted chemicals, H2O products also remove microplastics, which have been found in increasing amounts in some water sources in South Africa.
H2O aims to give you more than just purified water, by removing the bad and leaving you with water that tastes and smells great and most importantly, is healthier for you and your family. Additionally, the majority of our products also improve water palatability and increase its pH levels.
