Water Purifier Displaces Bottle Water Industry’s Dominance*
By Sayer Ji
Huge companies like Pepsi, Nestlé, and Coca-Cola sell billions of units of Reverse Osmosis purified tap water each year, the inevitable consequence of which is the littering of our planet with plastic that will pollute the environment for hundreds of years. What if you could eliminate the “middle men,” thousands of dollars in costs, and tons of plastic in the process?
If you have followed our work at GreenMedInfo.com you know that water quality concerns figure top on our list, especially considering how toxic the environment and municipal tap water have become, as well as the fact that 99% of water molecules by number in your body are water. Clearly, people are waking up to the vital importance of consuming clean water, but a common question emerges: what water should I drink?
I, personally, drink Mountain Valley water out of glass whenever possible. But when it comes to cooking, or making hot beverages like tea and coffee, its simply not economical to use Mountain Valley. So what’s the solution?
I have the great pleasure of introducing our followers to my friend Peter Spiegel’s groundbreaking solution: the AquaTru™ water purification system. He has managed to make available, for the first time, the same 4-stage Reverse Osmosis technology used by the world’s largest beverage corporations to produce bottled water, but has miniaturized it to fit your countertop with no installation or plumbing required. He also is contracting directly with the membrane manufacturer, eliminating thousands of dollars of “middle man” costs. This system also provides a cost effective alternative to extremely bulky and costly under-the-sink RO systems. Not only will you save a ton of money on pure water you will also save the environment from millions of pounds of plastic. For instance, the Pacific Institute estimated that the U.S. consumer, in 2006 alone, bought 31.2 billion liters of water sold in plastic containers weighing a total of 1,800,000,000 pounds!
AquaTru™ is the first and only counter top water purifier that makes bottled-water-quality water right from your tap without any plumbing or installation. AquaTru’s exclusive, patent pending TruPure™ technology miniaturizes the same reverse osmosis technology used by all the major bottled brands and puts it into a compact countertop water purifier for the first time. AquaTru™ removes or substantially reduces virtually all the toxic chemicals in your tap water [more details provided below].
What’s wrong with Tap Water?
The EPA has not set a new drinking water standard since 2001.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulates about 100 contaminants in our tap water, but a study conducted by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) found over 300 harmful contaminants in tap water serving over 53.6 million Americans.
Harmful contaminants in our unregulated drinking water include:
– Disinfection byproducts (over 600 have been identified!)
– Perchlorate (rocket fuel – read the Greenmedinfo.com exposure on “Perchlorate Gate“)
– MTBE (gasoline additive)
– Prescription drug residue like anti-depressants & hormones from birth control.
Disinfection byproducts are carcinogens which are produced when drinking water-disinfectants like chlorine and chloramine react with naturally-occurring or decaying matter in the water to form byproducts that pose serious health risks.
Nitrogen and phosphorus from agricultural runoff contaminate our groundwater supply posing health risks.
A study by the EWG found that over 43 million Americans in 42 states drink water that is polluted with chromium, much of it likely being in the carcinogenic form of Chromium-6.
What’s wrong with typical fridge & pitcher filters?
They are filters, not purifiers. Most pitcher and refrigerator filters are only designed to make your water taste better, but not necessarily safer, which is of primary importance. Filters remove simple chemicals like chlorine, but may leave behind a toxic chemical concoction for you to drink.
What’s wrong with bottled water?
According to the Pacific Institute, it takes over 17 million barrels of oil to produce the plastic required for bottled waters consumed by Americans in a year, which is enough oil to fuel more than 1 million cars for an entire year.
The Pacific Institute estimates that it takes 3 litres of water to create 1 litre of bottled water.
Over 73 billion half-litre bottles of water are consumed in the U.S. per year. Only 29% are recycled, meaning 50 billion bottles end up in landfills or polluting our waterways.
The recommended eight glasses of water a day (1460 pints). At $.25 a pint (if you buy at Costco) that will cost you $365 a year. At a $1.00 a bottle at a convenience store that’s $1460.
What’s right about AquaTru™?
With AquaTru™, your water isn’t just filtered….it’s purified. Affordable and easy to maintain. No installation is necessary. It utilizes patent-pending TruPure™ reverse osmosis technology for nearly 4X the efficiency of regular RO systems. The 4-step reverse osmosis filtration process includes:
- Mechanical Pre-Filter: Removes sediments and cloudiness (turbidity) from water
- Reverse Osmosis Pre-Filter: Removes more than 99% of chlorine and chloramine which can damage the RO filter
- High Efficiency U.S.-Made Reverse Osmosis Membrane: Takes out metallic ions, salts, viruses, pollutants, drugs, etc.
The Japanese RO membrane manufacturer’s data shows it removes the following contaminants:
- Arsenic = 95.00%
- Asbestos = 95.00%
- Barium = 99.90%
- Chlorine = 99.90%
- Chloramine = 99.00%
- Cadmium = 99.00%
- Copper = 99.00%
- Chromium (hexavalent) = 99.00%
- Cysts (cryptosporidium & giardia) = 99.99%
- Fluoride = 90.00%
- Lead = 99.00%
- Mercury = 99.00%
- MTBE = 90.00%
- Nitrates = 90.00%
- Perchlorate = 90.00%
Mike Adams of NaturalNews used ICP-MS instrumentation to assess the unit’s ability to remove heavy metals and radionuclides and found it removed the following:
- Aluminum reduction = 92.99%
- Copper reduction = 99.79%
- Arsenic reduction = 99.90%
- Strontium reduction = 98.80%
- Cadmium reduction = 100.00%
- Cesium reduction = 100.00%
- Mercury reduction = 100.00%
- Lead reduction = 99.90%
- Uranium reduction = 100.00%
- Activated Coconut Shell Carbon Filter: “Polishes” the water and removes any remaining volatile organic compounds (toxic gases)
- Bisphenol Free, Non-Estrogenic Material Used (Tritan™): AquaTru™ uses Tritan™ copolyester material, which is the same material used by the Vitamix and Nutribullet and which was evaluated by 3rd-party research to be free of estrogenic and androgenic activity in 2012 (email us for the research document: email@example.com). Also, Tritan™ copolyester material is free of not only bisphenol A, but all bisphenols, e.g. bisphenols S, F, M, etc.
The filter features a compact footprint; sits easily on your counter or under any standard kitchen cabinet. Its easy-to-use dispensing button makes filling up your glass or water bottle fast and convenient. The removable dispensing tank can be stored in the fridge for cold drinking water. The digital display tells you when it’s time to change filters. The filters last two years or more. The unit is completely portable, so you can take it with you if you move.
We all need to drink water – a lot of it. What are you doing to make sure it’s safe, pure and healthy? Make sure you get the full story before choosing what goes into your body, what comes out of your pocketbook and what’s best for the world around you!
