Why Carbon Filtration?Carbon is a natural adsorption media used to remove harmful chemicals such as chlorine and its carcinogenic by-products. It also helps to improve the taste and smell of water.Not All Are Made EqualThere are two predominant types of carbon filters used in the filtration industry: Solid-block Activated carbon and Granular activated filters (GAC). Solid-block Activated carbon filters are known to be much more effective at removing contaminants due to its larger ratio of surface area that allows a consistent rate of water exposure to maximise adsorption. These filters usually cost slightly more due to the additional manufacturing process to give them a solid block state.Granular activated filters consist of loose granules of carbon that high pressured water can create potential gaps to pass right through without contacting the…

Message from MD: Passion for Water in Our DNA

News
Understanding Each Other in Work Place Due to our growing organisation, all employees recently completed the MBTI test. The Myers–Briggs Type Indicator is a self-report questionnaire designed to indicate psychological preferences in how people perceive the world around them and make decisions. Results are not right or wrong, nor good nor bad. But they encourage the understanding and cooperation of differences. In the ultimate case, our team consists of many different personalities. Perceivers for example are equally important as judges (planners) – foresighted planning ideally is combined with courageous action. Focus on Quality, Not Quantity On a different occasion I was asked what the DNA of our company was. I thought this is an interesting question since it does not primarily aim at our external characteristics but rather on how…

“Millions of Babies Die Each Year Because They Don’t Have Access to Neonatal Care” Invented by Sir Ray Avery from Australia, the revolutionary baby incubators -LifePods provide expert 24/7 hospital care for premature or sick babies.

Potential Risk of Cooking with Tap Water and Salt

Potential Risk of Cooking with Tap Water and Salt

News
According to a recent study, cooking with chlorinated/chloraminated water can react with your food and ingredients producing potentially harmful toxins in your food. This is due to the fact when iodized table salt is added to tap water that is chlorinated or chloraminated during the cooking process, it can react and create hypoiodous acid. This acid can potentially react with other foods and organic matter to create iodinated disinfection by-products (I-DBPs) in the form of toxic molecules. Some of these molecules were found to be 50 to 200 times more toxic than others. Studies are still being conducted at this time to determine the full extent of how it affects our health. Content reference from: https://www.elsevier.com/about/press-releases/research-and-journals/cooking-with-chloraminated-water-and-salt-could-create-toxic-molecules Swisspro Water filtration reduces more than 90% chlorine and its by-products, including other chemicals and heavy…

Water is essential for maintaining good health. Keeping our bodies hydrated reduce risk from increased toxicity in the body, constipation and even organ failure.  It is recommended that our kidneys excrete at least 300ml of waste daily, and that we consume enough fluids to dissolve uric acid & urea and aid expulsion. As we age, our kidney functions start to diminish to some extent, and quite often we lose more fluids from more frequent trips to the toilet; since our bladders don’t hold as well as before.  This increases the need for our elderly to re-hydrate more often to maintain an optimal level of water in the body, so as to prevent pro-longed de-hydration risks and eventually hefty medical bills. Encourage your loved ones to hydrate often and ensure they…
