SECURING DRINKING WATER
How do we ensure that our family is drinking water that is both clean and safe? Unlike most water filtration systems that merely remove larger contaminants like sediment, nasty smells and colour, a water purification system that uses Reverse Osmosis (RO) technology gets rid of virtually all contaminants to yield pure drinking water. That’s why RO is used throughout the world in any application that demands high purity water.
In the RO technology, water is forced by pressure through a special membrane which has incredibly small pores that allow water molecules to pass through. Virtually all other contaminants – inorganic contaminants, chemicals, drug traces, even radioactive compounds simply cannot pass through the RO membrane.
Now you and your family can have a peace of mind with Elken Bio Pure. Elken Bio Pure is the region’s leading RO system with a 5-stage purification process that removes contaminants as minutes as 0.0001 micron in diameter (that’s about 500,000 times tinier than the diameter of a strand of hair!) to produce pure water. The sole recipient of the prestigious S300 WQA Gold Seal in Asia, Elken Bio Pure has garnered numerous international awards including 2 Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Awards for 2 consecutive years and is trusted by over 2 million people. Not only that, Elken Bio Pure is also backed by the expertise of 4 WQA Certified Water Specialists and the largest service and support network in South-east Asia.
As frightening as the E.Coli bacteria scare in Malaysia was, bacteria is a relatively large contaminant in water that can be easily removed or inactivated by a good water treatment system. More alarming, as can be seen in the previous post, is the discovery of increasingly microscopic chemical contaminants from agricultural production and mining run-offs, radioactive compounds and minutes traces of over 100 different pharmaceuticals that have been discovered in lakes, rivers, reservoirs, streams, wastewater, groundwater and other drinking-water supplies.
Unfortunately, most municipal or even water treatment systems are simply not equipped to remove these contaminants that are only measurable at the nanogram level per litre. As a result, most of these extremely tiny and invisible contaminants are found in filtered drinking water worldwide, heightening worries among scientists about the long-term consequences to human health.
