It's an essential component in our nutrition and hygiene. Our water should be clean and free of nasty chemicals. However, not every town has water wi...

Bottled Water vs Tap Water

Bottled Water vs Tap Water

Water is eternal. As long as there has been the earth, there has been water. Similarly, the debate over bottled water vs tap water seems to have lasted an eternity. We have all got stuck into this debate at some point with friends and family members. One way or another, it is a conversation that rarely finds a satisfying resolution. Environmental change and increased water scarcity are focusing minds more and more on this question: Should we drink bottled water or tap water? While many peopl...

Is Tap Water Safe to Drink?

Living in the 21st century, there is an abundance of different types of water you can choose from. From bottle, to tap, to filtered, to sparkling… the list goes on. So, how do we know which one to choose from? And why are we paying heaps of money to drink something that our body actively needs?

Chlorine in your Water

Chlorine in your Water

A necessary evil? All municipal water treatment facilities use chlorine in some form or another—that is a given—because it is such an effective way to kill bacteria.  However, even if you use well water, there’s still a chance that chlorine is a component.  All sorts of things can get into your water supply which is why some things should not be downhill of other things, and minimum distances should be maintained. Chlorine is pretty accommodating though; when it is present in large amounts ...

Running Afoul of Clean Water

Running Afoul of Clean Water

What is that smell? Okay, okay, maybe it’s not quite as bad as we all imagined when the heroes ended up in a garbage masher aboard the Imperial Death Star while rescuing the princess. However, it is hard to argue that any sort of odor is acceptable when we’re in the shower. Water is supposed to be pristine and pure; it’s supposed to make us feel like we’re removing everything that has accumulated, not adding another layer. Where do odors come from? There are innumerable possibilities for the ...

Toxic Metals

Toxic Metals

Leaching: Metal escaping into the water supply Having just received a letter from the city Health Department (because of the age of the house) suggesting the incoming water pipe should be inspected to see if it was made from lead reminds us that this is a good time to talk about toxic metals in your water supply.  This is particularly important if someone is pregnant or there are young children in the house. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) tells us that if the levels of dissolved le...

Activated Carbon and Water Filters

Activated Carbon and Water Filters

activated carbon

Getting rid of Organic Solutes There are two mechanisms by which activated carbon removes contaminants from water.  The first one is called adsorption, which is not to be confused with absorption.  The second one is called catalytic reduction. Adsorption vs Absorption Since the spelling is very similar people often confuse these two terms.  When you clean up some spilled water with a paper towel, the moisture is absorbed, and travels inside the actual structure of the paper fibers.  That does...

KDF 55 Filters Kinetic Degradation Fluxion

It sounds complicated… What is it? It really isn’t that difficult.  With activated carbon filtration, you may remember, it works because the carbon has an immense surface area.  An amount that would just cover your thumbnail possesses the same surface area as a full-sized NHL hockey rink.  Carbon filtration relies on the fact that the water (and the impurities within) comes into contact with the carbon surface and the impurities get trapped like flies on flypaper. KDF filters use a completel...

Pharmaceuticals in the Water

Pharmaceuticals in the Water

Not what the doctor ordered You may find this astonishingly hard to believe, but the FDA (yes, the Food & Drug Administration, of these United States) recommends washing your old drugs down the sink, or flushing your old drugs down the toilet!  In the case of the latter, it includes things like transdermal fentanyl patches (Isn’t that just terrific for your plumbing). Why do they suggest this?  Apparently not everybody has access to proper disposal facilities, they tell us.  They are so c...

Pesticides & Fertilizers

Pesticides & Fertilizers

Yes, but not in our water supply! In English we use of the suffix “–cide” to denote something that kills or destroys something that we don’t want, such as germicide or bactericide.  In agriculture there are some invasive species of plants (“weeds”) that could compromise the quality of the crop, and so farmers carefully select herbicides which are deemed harmless to people, but target the undesirable plant.  Insecticides kill insect invaders, and fungicides handle the remainder.  All of these ...
