23 Oct Water companies experience a clean water crisis
As a fresh water company, we understand that pure and clean water is vital to human survival. The problem is that most people don’t have much of a choice when it comes to the water they consume. Most South Africans can still enjoy drinking tap-water, but sadly the quality of clean water is questionable. According to the Times LIVE in 2012, drinking water from 14 municipalities in seven different provinces were found to be unsafe for human consumption.
The easiest alternative for the average South African is bottled water. However, research has shown that bottled water can be just as bad, and in some cases even worse than tap-water. This means that it is important to consume products from reputable suppliers, even when it comes to a commodity as simple as water.
Chemicals such as Fluoroscilic Acid, Aluminium Sulphate, Sodium Silicofluoride, Calcium Hydroxide and liquefied Chlorine are frequently added to tap water to make it safe to drink. Furthermore, many houses built before 1970 are likely to still have lead water pipes, which has been known to negatively affect the quality of one’s water. If you don’t know when the water mains around your house have ever been replaced, there is a good chance that your “safe” drinking water could be contaminated. For these reasons, more and more people are now turning to even more scientific water purification techniques and technology for clean water.
