People worldwide are becoming increasingly concerned with municipal mains water supplies, and in New Zealand, in August 2016 some 45 people were hospitalised which resulted in 3 deaths due to contaminated water coming from underground water supplies.
It is therefore important to know where the water you drink comes from and in Australia municipal mains water is monitored for 70 different contaminants, including cryptosporidium, bacteria and some pesticides.
There is evidence to suggest that when people are exposed to more than one pesticide, the blood concentrations of the individual pesticides are up to 100 times greater than during exposure to a single toxin. Furthermore, lead in Australian plumbing fittings was legal until 1989 while chlorine is commonly used to disinfect water from deadly diseases including dysentery, typhoid and cholera and has been linked to various health problems.
The RainWatch filter makes sense in ensuring that rainwater from the heavens remains pure as nature intended it to be and when combined with a complete filtration system, rainwater has the potential to be a safe and viable source of drinking water all year round.
