A fundamental principle in helping ensure drinking water stays safe for you to consume is making use of a "multibarrier approach" to reduce risks in your water supply.
The approach is similar to skydiving with a backup parachute. If your main chute fails, you are still safe and depending on the risk there may be more than one backup!
This approach starts at the water source and continues throughout the treatment process. However, New Zealand has a significant problem with its water.
According to the Ministry of Health Annual Report on Drinking Water Quality, published 30 June 2020, over 970,000 people connected to registered drinking water supplies receive water that does not comply with the Drinking Water Standards for NZ.
Furthermore, there are 840,000 people in New Zealand drinking water of "unknown" quality, unless they are testing it themselves. This includes "self suppliers" where people drink rain and bore water.
Despite the best efforts of a town water treatment system, the water still needs to get to your tap. While there are some great treatment plants around the country, they can deliver high quality water into an aged, poor quality distribution system where your water can be compromised and all that hard work is undone.
A Whole Home Purification system helps ensure your household receives top quality water.
As Waiheke residents we all understand the value of drinkable water and appreciate it is a precious resource. There are two main sources on the island, rainwater and bore water. It's 2020, we live in "Clean and Green” New Zealand – no one should be getting sick from the water they drink.
Hon Nanaia Mahuta - The Government has today (28 July 2020) introduced legislation to Parliament that will transform drinking water safety in New Zealand and improve environmental outcomes for our wastewater and stormwater networks.
A key principle in helping ensure drinking water stays safe to consume is to use of the "multi-barrier approach" to reduce risks in your water supply. The good news is you can easily purify and protect your home with a Whole Home Purification system.
