Small Businesses Can Now Switch Water Supplier

Posted on: November 8th, 2011 by admin No Comments

The news that small businesses will be given the option to switch water suppliers will have big ramifications for the drinking water industry.

Currently only large businesses that use huge amounts of water every year are allowed to switch, but the change in laws could open this possibility to another 24,000 businesses across the UK.

This week the UK Parliament heard proposals to bring down the threshold cut off point from 50 to five megalitres.

More Small Businesses Can Now Switch Water Suppliers

Richard Benyon, the Environment Minister, said: “This change will allow a huge number of extra businesses to search out better water deals by switching supplier.”

The proposals have taken a couple of years to be implemented, having been made following the 2009 Cave Review into water markets. At the moment there is a monopoly on water supply in the UK
with businesses having to rely on their rates from the same companies that offer you and I water supply in our homes.

However businesses do have the benefits of lowering their water costs should they run the water supply efficiently, which effectively makes them water supply licensees.

Ofwat, the industry regulator, said that this had meant that although seven companies are registered as water supply licensees, just one of more than 2,000 eligible businesses has ever chosen to switch providers.

By the end of 2011 a White Paper will be released which details changes to the industry. Ofwat is hoping that the changes will make the industry more competitive and less open to monopolisation.

That in turn should be good news for small and medium sized business owners. The same changes were made in Scotland three year ago and are generally thought to have lowered prices and increased customer satisfaction, even though Business Stream is still the main service provider.

Currently in England the only businesses which can be said to be truly competitive are in the water waste disposal sector and the water purification systems industry.

Water Purification Tablets Make The Perfect Xmas Gift

Posted on: November 4th, 2011 by admin No Comments

Christmas is a time of giving and so makes the ideal occasion to spare a thought for those who are less fortunate than ourselves.

That means that for much of the developing world, Christmas is more about necessity – what we need rather than what we want.

With this is mind the worldwide child charity UNICEF has announced the release of special Survival Gifts. This truly is the gift that keeps giving.

Give a Child a Give of Water Purificiation Tablets

The gift categories are organised into six categories of main importance and for that reason water is listed among them. The others are emergency, food, play, health and emergency. The idea is to get important gifts which help children around the world to survive distributed, no matter how remotely they are located.

Although the gifts range in price from therapeutic milk at the bottom of the list to a Range Rover at the top of the list, one of the most important among them are water purification tablets.

Unclean drinking water is the biggest killer of children in the world. More than 900 million children worldwide lack access to pure water. However only $20 worth of water purification tablets can provide an entire family with three whole month’s of clean water, enough to last them through Christmas and into the New Year.

If you want to give your family the gift of pure water for Christmas, why not contact Aquatec Bristol before the holiday season? Our water purification systems can help to turn hard water into soft water and make your drinking water cleaner and healthier, as well as make sure that all your home appliances work better.

Japanese Minister Challenged to Drink Nuclear Water

Posted on: November 2nd, 2011 by admin No Comments

There was a moment of high drama in a Japanese press conference when a government official was heckled to drink water from an area that had
been contaminated by the nuclear fallout.

The Japanese parliamentary secretary was challenged to drink nuclear water

The country is still recovering from its biggest disaster since the atomic bomb was dropped in the Second World War. On March 11, 2011, a huge
earthquake triggered a massive tsunami which wreaked havoc on the Japanese coastline.

Thousands of people were killed and entire communities washed away by the gigantic wall of black water which swept over the sea boundaries. As if
that was not bad enough, the flooding then caused the main nuclear power plants along the coastline to malfunction. Japan has already suffered from high levels of radioactive fallout and this was like Hiroshima mark two.

Understandably tensions are running high in a country which has seen its prized economy dealt a double blow by this natural disaster and the
global economic crisis.

Therefore local journalists did not take kindly to the efforts of senior parliamentary secretary Yasuhiro Sonoda to prove that the ground
around the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant was yielding pure drinking water. They told him to put a glass of water where his mouth was and drink the water.

And sure enough he did so, despite the risk that this water could still be suffering from nuclear contamination. The government, on the other hand, argued that the water has been put through a water purification system and showed no traces of the dangerous chemicals.

Water Purification Protects Life

Posted on: October 27th, 2011 by admin No Comments

While home water purification systems can improve the quality of your water, we have to acknowledge that living in England puts us among the lucky few in the world.

Despite our problems with excessive rain and occasional flooding, there are very few waterborne diseases to look out for in England.

Swimming in the Thames is never a good idea, as witnessed by the recent illnesses suffered by celebrity comedian David Walliams as he did his charity swim, but diseases such as typhoid, tuberculosis and malaria are not something that British people usually have to contend with.

However for one sixth of the worldwide population they are a daily occurrence and unclean water is the biggest threat to life in the countries that are affected.
While the Aquatec home water purification system can soften the water in your area and lessen the worst effects of skin conditions (and it can also give peace of mind to people who have weak immune systems) it would not guarantee protection against these sorts of diseases.

For that you would need a product such as the Lifestraw, a new portable piece of water purification equipment. The Lifestraw can literally allow people to drink river water or stagnant water, and by the time the water has gone through the straw it will be suitable for drinking.

Take a look at the excellent video below to get an idea about water purification means to people around the world
