Our bodies are at least 75% water. Adults should drink a minimum of 8 glasses of pure water a day to prevent dehydration. Water is essential for our bodies to function properly as it facilitates nutrient absorption and removal of wastes.
The water from our taps is now heavily polluted with contaminants such as lead from petrol fumes, dirt, hair, rust, slime, hydrocarbons, algae, agricultural pesticides, industrial wastes just to name a few. Add to these the contaminants added by water authorities such as chlorine, aluminium and copper and you have a foul smelling and foul tasting toxic cocktail.
If you are drinking tank water the quality of the water may be worse. Birds, frogs, rodents, reptiles and insects can all get into rainwater tanks and their droppings can pollute the water. Material such as dust, leaves, twigs, cane ash, corroded metal, residues from roofing products, smoke, woodfire particles and remains of agricultural aerial spraying can also find its way into your tank and taint the water.
If your water supply comes from dams, springs, streams or underground bores you have the added concern of faecal contaminants leeching from septic tanks as well. The need for effective purification of drinking water has never been greater.
The Epic Water Systems Water Purifying system together with a carbon activated ceramic filter are extremely efficient at removing impurities such as bacteria, chlorine, amoeba, suspended solids, organic pesticides, heavy metals and cysts. Specifically laboratory test results show that our water filter used in our water filter system will remove up to:
- Bacteria Reduction (E.coli, Cholera, Salmonella) 99.99%
- Cyst Reduction ( Cryptosporidium & Giardia) 99.99%
- Algae,Rust,Sediment Reduction 99.99%
- NSF Turbidity Reduction std.53 99.69%
