Why you should not drink from Plastic Bottled Water

Why you should not drink from Plastic Bottled Water

[siteorigin_widget class="SiteOrigin_Widget_Image_Widget"][/siteorigin_widget]   "Exposure to BPA is a concern because of possible health effects of BPA on the brain and prostate gland of fetuses, infants and children." The worlds’ yearly plastic production is 300 Million tons of which only 14% are recycled! A lot of the unrecycled materials gets into oceans, lakes, and rivers and finally – as microplastics - into our food chain and drinking water. Individual countries, cities and supermarket chains already started to ban plastic bags and straws. Some places like San Francisco and Toronto started to stop using plastic bottles for drinking water and carbonated drinks. This trend is unstoppable and growing. But what about microplastics which already floats in the oceans and rivers? Based on definition, microplastics are smaller than 5mm in size. Regardless of…

We are participating in Ground Zero Run

[siteorigin_widget class="SiteOrigin_Widget_Image_Widget"][/siteorigin_widget]  Running a small distance can help make a BIG difference.

Harmful Compound found in Plastic Bottled Water

Harmful Compound found in Plastic Bottled Water

[siteorigin_widget class="SiteOrigin_Widget_Image_Widget"][/siteorigin_widget]   "Risking our health over expensive and unsafe drinking water is not so smart." Who does not know the world famous natural mineral water from the Alps? This world famous water subtly gives us the illusion of drinking natural mineral water directly from the glacial plateau in the Alps. In Singapore many consumers are ready to spend more than S$2.00 on a bottle of this noble source of mineral water. We are all the more so astonished by the latest report from Swiss researchers, that this famous and well-known mineral water contains more Chlorothalonil than the amount that can be found in the Lake of Zurich! Chlorothalonil is a pesticide. The substance (2,4,5,6-tetrachloroisophthalonitrile) is an organic compound and known as a broad-spectrum organochloride pesticide. It is a non-systemic…

Our SUPERSWISS filter takes on the NSF certification challenge – Will we pass the test?

Circuit Breaker: 10 Signs You Are Dehydrated

Circuit Breaker: 10 Signs You Are Dehydrated

The current Circuit Breaker makes us stay at home. One possible challenge is too little exercise with too much food consumption. Many of us intend to break this vicious circle with more exercise either at home, or brisk walks or jogging. While we move less, it does not mean we do not need to drink sufficient water. Warning signals from our body If we drink only when we are thirsty, our body already contains insufficient liquids. Our metabolism sends various warning signals to alert that we are dehydrated and should drink more. It is important to always drink enough water. About two to three liters a day are recommended for an adult. With increasingly warm temperatures, the need to consume more liquids also increases. [siteorigin_widget class="SiteOrigin_Widget_Image_Widget"][/siteorigin_widget] 10 signs that you did not drink sufficient water:…

We Know They Are Cheaper…

We Know They Are Cheaper…

[siteorigin_widget class="SiteOrigin_Widget_Image_Widget"][/siteorigin_widget]   "At the end of the day, you are drinking the water, not the design. " Running a water filtration business in Singapore for more than 15 years, we saw how the market is flooding with new brands of water filtration in recent years. Besides, the awareness on “no plastic” campaign  has somehow given a warning message about the danger of single-use plastic to the public. Subsequently, PUB continuous effort to maintain drinking water quality at the highest possible level stands out to calm some confused consumers that tap water is safe for drinking, or consumers can get any filtration system in the market based on their preference. The increased awareness on drinking quality drinking water is a good sign, encouraging the local market to flourish with different water filtration products. Introducing with lots of…

Water Test Kits – Were You Fooled?

Water Test Kits – Were You Fooled?

[siteorigin_widget class="SiteOrigin_Widget_Image_Widget"][/siteorigin_widget]   "Based on our experience, even the most popular mineral water brands in the market such as Evian, Spritzer and Fiji, will get the same testing results due to the minerals content. " Have you ever seen a water testing demonstration using some electronic devices? Imagine, the crystal-clear water turning brown colour and looking awfully dirty within few seconds right in front of your eyes. It sounds like a horrible nightmare since you drink from that water source every day. Beware of these water test scams given by biased or inexperienced sales people because these testing kits are designed for other purposes. Unfortunately it is quite common that these fraudulent sellers in the market are trying to sell water filter with dirty and unethical tricks. These sellers usually…

Filtered Water for Lombok

Filtered Water for Lombok

[siteorigin_widget class="SiteOrigin_Widget_Image_Widget"][/siteorigin_widget]   "Lombok was again struck by a 5.5 magnitude earthquake where at least two people were killed, and dozens injured. We continue to pray for more financial aid to reach the shores of Lombok so that they can return to normalcy." In February 2019, as the exclusive agent and distributor of Katadyn Group, Swisspro has visited Lombok for 4 days. Knowing that multiple earthquakes and aftershocks have struck Lombok badly and causing numerous locations with no access to clean drinking water, the trip was to look into Lombok’s situation after the earthquake in 2018. Attended by Alan Chan, International Business Development Executive and Mr Joshua Tan from bgri.org, some of the Katadyn products was deployed to showcase to local residents on how to filter water using the right…
