Features and Benefits Summary
It re-mineralises and ionises ordinary tap water while filtering out chlorine, chemicals, heavy metals, fluoride & bacteria. 5.25 Litre reservoir capacity makes it ideal for domestic & light commercial use.
13 stages of sterilising, filtration & activation, multi stage cartridges contain:
- Sub micron prefilters
- Silver ionised activated coconut shell carbon,
- Ion exchange cation resin for upto 99.9% Fluoride removal
- Bio organic coral mineral sands
- Silica sands
- Far infrared ceramics
- Bio ceramic Somelite™
- Magnets and other patented filter medium.
Waters filters significantly reduce chemicals, heavy metals and bacteria from tap water.
Water quality tests show that Waters filters remove up to 99.9% of chlorine - a harsh, unpleasant tasting toxic chemical used to disinfect bacteria in municipal tap water.
Clean water, every time
Water remains fresh even during storage.
To help remove and prevent the propagation of harmful bacteria the Waters filters contain long lasting silver-activated coconut shell carbon, magnets, bio ceramics and Somelite™ coral sand.
The result? Cleaner, healthier, great tasting drinking water for you or your family’s hydration needs.
Supplies trace elements
The Somelite™ coral sand re-mineralises water, working together with bio ceramics to enrich water with around 60 essential sea based minerals such as calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium.
A mineral-deficient diet can contribute to significant health problems, causing mental and physical symptoms that affect everyday behaviour.
A good source of mineral-rich hydration, together with proper nutrition, can give the body minerals it needs to stay in good health.
Introduces negative ions
Beneficial negative ions abound in Nature in good quality air and some naturally occurring minerals.
The minerals in the Waters filters significantly reduce the positive ion count of the tap water filtered through its filter medium.
Our patented Bio ceramics, which emit a far-infrared energy into the water creating negative ions which increase the energetic nature of the water giving it life & creating a clean fresh taste.
Also helps to reduce the water molecule size to help you hydrate faster & reduce acidic build up in our cells.
It’s an Alkaliser
Alkaline water neutralises acidity
Stress and over consumption of processed, acidic foods and drinks disturb the blood's natural alkaline balance of pH 7.4.
This balance is critical to preserving good health and immunity as degenerative disease thrives in an acidic environment.
The Waterman minerals produce an alkaline pH of around 8.5 – 9.5 to the filtered water.
This aids your body in neutralising the acidic build up from our lifestyles & diets & helps to restore optimum functionality to major organs & immune system while noticeably increasing energy & concentration.
It efficiently delivers fresh, easy-to-drink alkaline water, wherever you are.
It is lightweight and easy to take it with you so that you never need to go thirsty or drink acidic drinks again (Teas, coffee, soft drinks & most bottled water).
The taste is excellent, clean & crisp as water should be!
Restores water's natural structure
Waters filters contain special magnets, which restore waters natural hexagonal cell structure giving a reduced cluster size & surface tension.
This enables the water to penetrate into your cells faster & with greater ease thus increasing your rate of hydration.
Combats cellular damage
The ORP (Oxidation reduction potential) value of the mineral water from the Waters Bio Mineral Pots is very close to the structure of the water in a living cell.
Giving this water a greater cellular affinity for hydration & helps to combat cellular & DNA damage from acidic lifestyles.
BPA Free and no leeching
Once the water has been filtered it is of critical importance that it is kept in a vessel that will not contaminate it.
Waters Co use a number of different reservoir technologies as appropriate to each products purpose. Most importantly they are BPA (Bisphenol A) free an non leeching. Below is a list of the types of reservoirs used and which models they are designated to.
Bio Ceramic Reservoir. Auto plumbed in
WATERS Bio Ceramic Jade (Thousand-Years-Fountain-water-purifier) is world’s only water purifier made from ceramic. Ceramic is made from a mixture of various metals and non-metal elements that have the potential of generating Ki (Otherwise known as Chi or life energy). The ceramic substance is treated (Kiln fired) at a temperature of over 900?-1300? polished, retreated to the same temperatures and polished again. As mentioned previously, in ceramic, Ki is generated, which is absorbed and stored in water. Drinking water is thus synonymous to drinking Ki. Furthermore, the far infrared ray is also transmitted.
Glass Reservoir. 5,10 litre and H&C model
Unlike many competitor products, which use a plasic or perspex reservoir in bench top & commercial filters. Our bench top range BMP 400 (5 litre), BMP 1000 (10 litre) and Commercial BMP H&C Floor Standing all use hand blown blue glass reserviors.
Glass is a much better medium for storing water:
- More natural than Plastics & Perspex
- Helps to maintain a lower ambient temperature in warmer climates.
- Non Porous
- Does not harbour bacteria & viruses
- Easier to clean
- Not affected by detergents & cleaning products
- Provides UV filtration from sunlight
- Aesthetically more attractive
Perspex Reservoir. 1.5 litre jug
The 1.5 litre BMP Ace jug is made from Perspex which has glass like qualities without the fragility of glass. Perspex is BPA free, hard wearing, resistent to heat & detergents.
PET 1 & Tritan. Waterman Portable
All Waterman units produced prior to Oct 2012 have a PET1 reservior which is a food grade plastic and is certified BPA free.
Waterman Units produced Post Oct 2012 have a reservior made using Triton, which is harder wearing, more resistent to heat, detergents and most importantly is still BPA free.
Notes on the PET Bottle
The PET bottle itself poses no danger when refilled. PET is an inert plastic and does not leach harmful materials into its contents — either when a beverage is stored unopened, or when bottles are refilled or frozen. The PET container has been safely used for 20 years and has undergone rigorous testing under FDA guidelines to ensure its safety as a food and beverage container suitable for storage and reuse.
Any opened bottles can harbour bacteria, however, as will mugs, glasses or any other beverage container. PET bottles are no more likely to foster bacteria than any other packaging or drink container. Ideally, all drinking containers — including PET bottles — should be washed with hot, soapy water and dried thoroughly prior to reuse.
There are no dangers inherent in the freezing of PET bottles, and absolutely no truth to the internet-circulated rumours that dioxins are leached from frozen PET bottles into bottle contents.
Dioxin is a chlorine-containing chemical that has no role or presence in the chemistry of PET plastic. Furthermore, dioxins are part of a family of chemical compounds formed only by combustion at temperatures well above 700 degrees Fahrenheit — not at room temperature or below.
PET packaging is selected by companies because it is safe, recyclable, convenient and suitable for food and beverage. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has reviewed migration testing data and concluded the PET containers do not leach harmful contents under foreseeable conditions of use.
The idea that PET bottles “leach” chemicals when heated in hot cars is not based on any science, and is unsubstantiated by any credible evidence. This allegation has been perpetuated by emails until it has become an urban legend, but it just isn’t so.
There is no connection between PET plastic and Bis-phenol A. Bis-phenol A is not used in the production of PET material, nor is it used as a chemical building block for any of the materials used in the manufacture of PET. Bis-phenol A is used to make polycarbonate, a different plastic from PET.
“Phthalates” (pronounced THA-lates) are a class of chemicals that include three subsets, each with different properties. PET or polyethylene terephthalate belongs to one of these phthalate subsets, but not the one most commonly associated with the term.
Orthophthalate is the phthalate subset most commonly referenced and discussed in popular literature and on internet sites; it has been the subject of some negative press. Often used to make various plastics more flexible, this type of phthalate is also called a plasticizer. PET does not contain plasticizers or orthophthalates. Plasticizers are never substituted for terephthalates used in the manufacturer of PET, nor are the two ever mixed.
PET packaging is selected by companies for a wide variety of product applications because it is safe, strong, shatter-proof, and recyclable. Antimony is often used as a catalyst in the production of PET plastic. Catalysts speed chemical reactions and are commonly used in manufacturing to ensure that a process happens fast enough to make it commercially practical.
Antimony was chosen based on its performance against various selection criteria, including effectiveness as a catalyst; productivity; safety, few, if any, adverse effects; and an acceptable overall cost. Antimony, used in PET as the oxide of antimony, has been used and researched for decades. Metallic antimony is not used.
In the science of toxic effects (toxicology), two key factors are used to determine a hazard: 1) How dangerous is the material?, and 2) How much of the material is released? A 1997 study showed that antimony oxide has very low toxicity.1 The compound is relatively inert and does not participate in biological life. As for how much antimony oxide is released from PET, long-term studies indicate that it’s very little. A report by the International Life Sciences Institute showed “less than five parts per billion” being released into liquid contents.2 This is compliant with the Environmental Protection Agency’s National Primary Drinking Water Standard.
Multiplied together, antimony oxide’s very low toxicity combined with very low occurrence means very, very low risk. Its use in PET does not endanger workers, consumers, or the environment.
