Health News Dam levels are low. Emotions are high. Let’s keep our good health consistent. February 13, 2018 Since we started our business in South Africa in the early 1990s we have been selling products that help you live healthily and sustainably. Our water purifiers and coolers use the world’s best materials to give you the healthiest drinking water. And, at this critical point in time, when our dams are running dry and any long-term, large-scale infrastructural solutions do not appear to be on the horizon, it is arguably the most important time to install a purifier. Water quality deteriorates when dam levels are low. When they are low and temperatures rise, blue/green algae blossoms tend to form in our dams. This results in the forming of Geosmins, causing the water to taste increasingly earthy. Geosmins are not harmful, but when these Geosmins and any other organic matter react with chlorine, harmful carcinogens could form. These carcinogens and chemicals can be easily removed from the municipally supplied tap water by purifying it with a quality water purifier. The better the technology used inside the purifier and the larger the media bed, the more you can be certain that you are not subjecting yourself or your loved ones to the chlorine, other chemicals, disinfectant by-products and bacteria that could be present. We do not use reverse osmosis technology to purify the drinking water. Reverse osmosis is known to waste up to 3 litres for every 1 litre of purified water. Instead, our H2O International water purifiers use the world’s leading and unique GAC/KDF/Riolyte technology that does not waste a single drop of water.
