How do water softeners work?

The traditional salt decalcifier is an anti-scale chemical treatment system. The procedure used to remove lime is based on ion exchange, i.e. calcium and magnesium ions are exchanged for sodium ions. This method is used by filter brands like Brita or Tappwater in addition to their active carbon filter.

The Real Cost of Bottled Water

Bottled water cost is astounding when you think of how much you’re paying for production and distribution compared to the water itself.

‘Forever Chemicals’ in your tap water

You may not recognise the name PFAS, short for poly and perfluoroalkyl substances, but you likely come into contact with it regularly, maybe multiple times a day. You might even consume it.

Filtered tap water vs. bottled water, which one is healthier?

1 million water bottles are purchased worldwide every minute. Why is that when most people have easy access to tap water?
In this article, we will explore the pros and cons of bottled water vs filtered water so you can make an informed decision about what type of water you would like to drink.

Drugs on Tap: Dangerous Tap Water Contaminants on the Rise

There is a growing concern about the occurrence of pharmaceuticals in drinking water. Pharmaceuticals get into the water supply via human excretion and by drugs being flushed down the toilet. You might think wastewater treatment plants would take care of the situation, but pharmaceuticals can pass through.

Ozone an alternative to chlorine water sanitising

Ozone is a powerful oxidising agent which, when dissolved in water, produces a broad spectrum biocide that destroys all bacteria, viruses and cysts. Ozone water treatment has been used commercially for the treatment of potable water since 1904.

Reverse Osmosis vs. Ultrafiltration

Reverse osmosis and ultrafiltration are two of the most powerful and effective water filtration systems on the market. Though both RO and ultrafiltration possess remarkable filtration properties, the systems do have key differences. From mineral retention to ease of installation and cost of maintenance, each system has unique advantages and disadvantages. We break down the main differences between the two.

The truth about biodegradable and compostable plastics (bioplastics)

Are bioplastics good for the planet? What is the difference between biodegradable and compostable plastics? What is left when bioplastic breaks down?
In this blog we will attempt to reveal the true nature of bioplastics and explain why not all bioplastics are created equally.

The past, present and future of the plastic bottle

The history of bottled water consumption is the story of us getting dependent on single use plastic. The negative impact of our behaviour is becoming more and more obvious and the urge for change is inevitable.
