“Make sure you purify at least the water that you use for drinking purposes,” he says. “For as little as R550 per year you can protect the health of your family and have peace of mind that the your water is pure 365 days a year. It makes such economic sense to invest in a water purifier for your home. Municipalities are doing their best with the limited resources that they have at their disposal. Throughout the world the responsibility has shifted from municipalities to private individuals to make sure that their drinking water is pure. Only 0.5 % of water that is delivered is used for drinking purposes, why purify 100% of it to the nth degree when it is so economical to take care of your water at point of use? It does not make economic sense. Get everyone in the family to love their healthy purified tap water. This will stop one from having to buy alternatives that are loaded with sugar and artificial chemicals. To me it’s a no brainer.”
