What is the Multibarrier Approach?

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.

Does treated water stay treated?

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.
