Honestly UV does kill bacteria BUT.... unfortunately u need to let it be in contact with the water for about 15 - 20 mins.

so the answer for you is rather than killing bacteria, u filter them off which most filters if you look for 0.01m filters will already do this job very well.

nothing bad about UV but seriously not necessary

if u boil then there is no need to UV sad.gif

The concern of bacteria in the water is actually too overly sensitive. Our bodies can handle bacteria (killing them via stomach juice) but the main concern is more of the dangerous bacteria, these bacteria do not live inside the water supplied.

You should be looking at how the water can help make the body healthy not just clean water...

Depends on your views.

Cost of normal filters do not go that high. Its only systems that enhances the water would cost that high. Even then the recurring cost of the filter is lesser than 1RM a day.

Think about it, the everything you have mentioned requires water to be absorbed into the body.

Point made

huh?

what???

this is untrue

nutrients do not need H2o to be absorbed by the body (since we are discussing absorption)
h20 is absorbed together in the small intestine
water is essential, and healthy water is not essential
just normal water would do

Could u show me where does it says nutrients need not have a medium (water) for absorption?

Unless u have learnt something new when i was already out of uni.

In general water is needed for everyday function from ingestion, digestion, absorption n excretion. Kindly check your science textbook if its true or i might need to go back to school....

I think missing the pt here..

Water is required for absorption through the body fluids, eg saliva stomach acid etc... This fluids contain water... Tis what i am talking abt

Water filter healthy or expensive is another thing altogether. Of course normal water will work... But as we all know better technology is always there if we want to go for it...tats all...

Hello,

I'm surprised to see such a long running blog about water system in Malaysia.
I've been using a water purification unit in my hosue for the last 3 years.
The brand is ForbesLux
Model: INOVA
The system uses a sediment filter + Activated Carbon + UV

The company is from India.
website: www.forbeslux.com
India HQ website: www.eurekaforbes.com

I have had no problems with the unit and the water taste good. I found this company have moving away from RO systems.

They current ly retail the same Inova unit for RM2798.

Any comments on this brand?

Just joined in this thread, according to the tittle of this thread,
the answer should be, the Water Purifier + inside the replacement component, must be at least NSF 42 + NSF 53 fully certified. biggrin.gif

Water filters are very important equipments for purification of water. You can search the best water filter or water distiller companies on internet. You will be able to find so many reputed brands on the internet, which are selling best water distillers. JDHarris is one the best water distiller providers. Its distillers are of very good quality. I have the distillers of this brand at my home.

Water Purifier with NSF Standard 53 tested & certified will remove most of the contaminants which including heavy metals as well. We may don't mind to have Bacteria in our water but there are still have others micro-organisms such like Viruses or Cycts in our water too.

Well, UV technology is safe to use and also need to be tested & certified by NSF Standard 55 using in Water Purifier. UV light was first used to treat water in 1919. It also well recognised as an method for treating water without the use of chemicals. It is often used by food processors, beverage companies, bottled water suppliers, pharmaceutical manufacturers and others to treat water used in their production processes.

Drinking Alkaline Water regarding Better Health in Singapore

Since body is primarily comprised of water, it makes sense that this water you consume should be as healthful as possible. It's always best if you replace acidifying soft drinks, soda pops and coffee with normal water. However, drinking alkaline water will provide many health benefits for your body that common tap water or even water in bottles cannot provide. Producing your own alkaline water at home can be one of the easiest means of improving your health.

Health Benefits of Alkaline Water
It is just a wonderful choice if you have doubts with indigestion. Many individuals who have suffered for many years from digestive problems have discovered relief by changing to alkaline water. It can help to cleanse the colon, removing a lot of accumulated waste. Bowel problems can also be alleviated. It helps the body eliminate poisons, thus purifying one's body and allowing it to operate more efficiently. When the body's pH is kept slightly alkaline, it is a lot more resistant to diseases.

Research indicates that cancer cells grow faster within an acid environment, therefore keeping the body's ph at a slightly alkaline amount can help increase your effectiveness against this terrible illness. It can also help prevent premature aging, both simply by drinking the water as well as using it for cleansing purposes, since it ends in better hydration and may actually help alleviate the skin. It is also a powerful antioxidant, helping to counteract the free radicals in your body. Alkaline normal water has been successfully used by so many individuals to treat hypertension, diabetes, headaches, and a lot of other common health problems. It is also a good idea to eat if you are on a weight-loss diet, or if you are trying to maintain a healthy weight level. When the body's pH is stored at a slightly alkaline amount, weight loss and fat maintenance is easier. Lots of people think of ionized alkaline water as their own personal elixir of youth, because it can be used to relieve so many negative health issues.

How to Make Alkaline Water
There are a variety of different ways to create alkaline water. If you are on a budget, you can make your water using a simple gallon jug. Add a 50 % teaspoon of baking soda to the jug after that fill with h2o. Shake well then check with a pH strip. Your water really should have a pH a higher level 8.5 in order to 9 for optimum final results. You can also use alkaline tablets or drops to be able to alkalize your own water. There's also jug filters which can be used to make out of regular water.

However, a normal water ionizing apparatus is generally easy and simple and most convenient strategy for making sure you have lots of alkaline water for having, cooking and personal washing. These devices can be put in under the sink or perhaps on the counter. Though water ionizers are not usually inexpensive, most people whom own them feel they are worth the expense in convenience and also health benefits.

Thanks for such good healthy info above, but seriously, where is the source that claim Diamond Brand is #1 Alkaline Water Specialist in Singapore?

Most importantly, do the company have minimum of NSF Standard 42 + NSF Standard 53 tested & certified for the Water Purifier? hmm.gif

So far there only few brand only in Malaysia are both NSF 42 + 53 tested & certified.
My house is using eSpring which is both above standard tested & certified and an extra of NSF Standard 55 as well because Water Purifier consists of UV Light.

If any other brand you currently surveying or someone trying to approach you and you not sure about it,
you can search their brand/model here: http://nsf.org/Certified/DWTU/

* Smart consumer will never buy a water purifier that do not have 3rd party NSF International tested & certified.
