Fracking Threatens UK Water

Posted on: April 25th, 2012 by admin No Comments

Opponents of hydraulic fracturing have written into the Guardian to complain about fracking getting the ‘green light’ in the UK.

Having read the Guardian’s Gas Fracking gets the Green Light article which was published on April 17, 2012, Marion Watson of Sheffield wrote to say that: “It beggars belief that fracking is recommended to be extended and earthquakes are the only risks that are taken into account.”

While in the past the risks of fracking may only have been theoretical, they are now very much real as a number of rural areas in the US have had their water supplies contaminated by fracking.

Fracking threatens UK water

While fracking has helped the US to become almost self reliant in terms of producing its own energy, environmentalists wonder about the impact that this has on groundwater, in both the US and the
UK, where fracking is also becoming increasingly popular.

But there have been cases of people finding that the water from their kitchen tap is dangerous and unusable due to methane contamination (which also raises the risk of explosions in a kitchen).

And with Britain suffering from a drought, can we risk polluting what remaining sources of water we have? In the hydraulic fracturing process around 2-3m gallons of water are used for each well, which can be fracked up to 18 times.

Furthermore fracking has an aesthetic consideration as it would involve numerous well heads spread out over the gas fields which, unlike wind turbines, carry the risk of toxic emissions.

If you are worried about the quality of your drinking water, why not purchase a home water purification system from Aquatec Bristol? Our pure water consultants have over 18 years experience in the field and we can guarantee up to 98% purity in your drinking water, creating water so pure that even a new born baby could drink it.

Water Meters for UK Homes

Posted on: April 24th, 2012 by admin No Comments

With the news that water suppliers will be installing water meters in UK homes to monitor water usage and prevent droughts, we will all have to get smarter with our water usage.

Thames Water has stated that it plans to install meters in 85,000 British homes by 2015, which will help residents to comply with hosepipe bans and identify anyone who is breaking the laws.

A spokesman for Ofwat, the water regulator, said: “The water sector in England and Wales is actively considering the potential for smart metering. We are especially interested in the opportunity for water to share communications infrastructure with the energy sector.”

UK Drought - Water Meters

Water meters are proposed to combat the UK Drought.

It is strange to imagine that Britain could ever have a drought considering how much rain we get. However, not only do we have an outdated water infrastructure which fails to retain rain adequately, but we consume vast quantities of water every day.

Currently seven water companies in the south and east of England have hosepipe bans and despite the recent wet weather the drought is expected to last unfor the rest of the year. As a result Thames Water has started trialling the water smart meters in London and Reading.

America has also suffered from water shortages caused by excessive demand and is already using the water meter technology across its 50 states. It works via an electrical transmitter which informs both the homeowner and the water company of the latest water readings.

However, if you want to lower your energy costs and save money on your water bills, there is another smart way. The water purification systems sold by Aquatec Bristol have been proven to reduce energy costs by 40% and stop your hard earned money going down the drain. As the water meters will cost up to £250 to install, which will be paid by the customer in their water bills, why not save yourself money in the long run by purchasing a water purification system?

UNICEF Tap Water Purification Scheme

Posted on: April 19th, 2012 by admin No Comments

Many of us take our access to pure water for granted, even in spite of the recent drought that has affected the south east of England.

However contaminated drinking water is a serious global problem which accounts for the death of thousands of children every day. It is a frightening statistic when you realise than approximately half of the world’s population does not have access to clean drinking water.

A number of initiatives are run to improve worldwide access to clean water including the UNICEF tap water project which encourages restaurants to raise money for water purification projects by levying a small charge on glasses of tap water with each meal. It sounds small but for just $1 you can ensure that a child has access to clean drinking water for 40 days.

UNICEF Water Purification Project

There are not many worthier causes, access to clean water is a basic human right and lack of access is the root cause for many of the world’s problems including ill health and disease.

While we do what we can to ensure a better quality of life for less fortunate individuals around the world, the ability to have clean drinking water in our own homes is in our own hands. The Aquatec water purification system purifies drinking water to 98% purity, and provides water so pure that even a new born baby could drink it. So why not call us out for a free water test today and wrap a ring of protection around you and your family?

Guarantee the Purity of your Water

Posted on: April 10th, 2012 by admin No Comments

UK homeowners are increasingly choosing water purification to guarantee the purity of their water.

There are a number of different ways to control the quality of your water, including softening the water to prevent limescale and removing contaminants and minerals.

There are four main methods of purifying water – Reverse Osmosis, Microfiltration, using an Activated Carbon Filter and Distillation.
• Microfiltration can be used to remove some bacteria and large pathogens, but not all of them.
• Activated carbon filtration reduces unwanted taste, odour and low concentrations of organic chemicals.
• Reverse osmosis is best known for its use in water desalinization projects, and can also reduce chemicals associated with unwanted colour and taste.
• Distillation effectively removes inorganic contaminants from water. Since distilled water has no minerals, some people claim that distilled water has a sweet or ‘flat’ taste.

However at Aquatec we use a unique process to filter the incoming mains water supply at a micron level to remove all of the larger particles of dirt and heavy metals.
Our advanced electrolytic media nano scale formulation uses redox (reduction/oxidation) to remove 98% of all harmful organic and inorganic compounds including chlorine, lead, mercury, iron and hydrogen sulphide.

But this is just one of eight stages which make sure that your water is completely pure by the time that it gets into your glass.

Once it has gone through an intensive water purification process. At stage 8 this includes the drinking water post filter media which removes any unwanted tastes and odours to produce purified water.

Finally Aquatec water purification systems have health benefits because they put back in the naturally occurring electrolytes that other systems remove. To guarantee the purity of your home water supply contact Aquatec Bristol today and book your free water quality test.
