Response to CNA News

Response to CNA News   As a manufacturer of premium water systems, we are happy to receive coverage from CNA. It mostly reflects our point of view, solutions and technology. And it helps to distinguish inferior quality products and services from professional standards. Taste: Non-neutral water taste can be a result of chemical- (eg. chlorine, pesticides) and/or microbiological contamination. Swisspro 3-stage filtration address both potential causes and are in the correct sequence. After a prefiltration, the extruded activated carbon cartridge eliminates taste, odor, chemicals and heavy metals. The 3rd stage microporous ceramic filter eliminates bacteria and cysts and avoids any recontamination based on silver impregnated quartz stones. Cancer prevention: The statement made by many competitors that water filters prevent cancer is effectively misleading. However, it is correct and scientifically proven…

Living in one of the cleanest cities in the world and given Singapore’s strict standards to water hygiene, buying and installing a water purifier at home may seem superfluous.

How Often Should You Change Your Filter?

[siteorigin_widget class="SiteOrigin_Widget_Image_Widget"][/siteorigin_widget] HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU CHANGE YOUR FILTER? It may hardly be a consideration when purchasing a water filtration system or dispenser: while some focus their purchasing decision purely by the outlook and functionality of the product, while only a meticulous few focus on reading the labels on the filters itself.

TOP 3 Criteria a SAFE Water Filtration must have

TOP 3 Criteria a SAFE Water Filtration must have

[siteorigin_widget class="SiteOrigin_Widget_Image_Widget"][/siteorigin_widget] TOP 3 Criteria a SAFE Water Filtration must have   1. Performance Against Chemicals & Heavy Metals Most filtrations in the market boast chemical removal using activated carbon as an adsorption media.  However, few realise that there are different grades of activated carbon and carbon filtration types that determine its performance: E.g. Purity and source of carbon, Granular activated carbon, Powdered activated carbon, Pelletised activated carbon, and the list goes on. Cheaper filtration usually offer granular, powdered, or mixed media to remove chemicals.  These options often have limited adsorption effectiveness due to quality and water channels created over time through its loose medium. (Read More about this here: https://www.swisspro.sg/2017/07/not-all-carbon-filters-are-made-equal/) Swisspro uses the highest-grade Swiss-made activated carbon (extruded solid block) with incorporated Zeolite which effectively remove not just chemicals…

The TOP 3 Features that truly define the quality of a Water Dispenser

The TOP 3 Features that truly define the quality of a Water Dispenser

[siteorigin_widget class="SiteOrigin_Widget_Image_Widget"][/siteorigin_widget] What do you first look out for when buying a water dispenser? Is it the appearance of the system? Multiple Functionalities? Where it is made from? Unknown to most, much of the actual important features are on the inside of the system.   No. 1: Tank Storage - Dispensing Method The ‘Gravity Tank’ method: Most conventional water dispensers use the ‘float valve’ to top up and dispense water. This is similar to that of the toilet cistern that we are all familiar with – when you flush (dispense), the water flows down based on the existing weight of the volume of water, causing the float to drop and trigger incoming water to top up the tank. This method can produce a nice flow rate of dispensing even if…

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…

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…
