The big water FAQ
50.facts about water
1. what is water
Water is chemically called H2O and came to our planet after the formation of the earth by millions of years of hail of comets. It is always the same water since the beginning, it is in a constant cycle and never leaves our earth, because it cannot escape through our atmosphere into space. It evaporates up to high into the clouds, condenses there and falls then by the gravity again as snow or rain on the earth. In this state, it is comparable to distilled water and contains little to no minerals. These do not belong in our drinking water as the water industry would like to make us believe, but come exclusively through a good diet of fruits, vegetables, meat (who likes it) and Himalayan salt in our bodies.
2. what is water used for
Water is a solvent as well as an information carrier and is the basis of all life for plants, animals and humans. It provides all these life forms with sufficient liquid, without which the so-called metabolism (the exchange of all vital substances which must enter and leave the organism), could not function in all life forms. This metabolism can also be called a combustion engine for our organism, since our so-called food is broken down by chewing in the mouth and then converted into our vital body energy with the help of water, oxygen, acids, enzymes and many other substances. In the process, many deposits, waste products and slags are produced, just like in a combustion engine, and without water, these cannot be sufficiently excreted.
3. how much water should you drink
The human being consists of up to 72% water, the brain of up to 90%. In order to be able to guarantee an optimal supply, an adult human being should drink between 2-3 liters of the cleanest and absolutely pollutant-free, H2O/water. With only a 10% undersupply, the first problems begin, such as circulatory problems, headaches, heart palpitations, and much more.
4. why we should filter our tap water
Thousands of years ago, it was still safe to drink water from lakes, rivers and streams. But since the beginning of the industrial age, many dangerous pollutants have been entering our water system unhindered. Since the filters of the sewage treatment plants are not fine enough to remove ALL relevant pollutants such as drugs, industrial chemicals, fertilizers and up to 3,500 other pollutants and their compounds, which are often in the nano range, completely up to 100% from our drinking water.
5. how dangerous is tap water
Since it is often impossible to see the contamination, it is difficult and expensive to find out what is in our drinking water. Unfortunately, the mass media deliver only untruths about this. There is actually our drinking water ordinance that should solve this problem, but can not and is not intended for this. It only determines the level of pollutants (in so-called limit values) of up to 50 pollutants, without removing them. All other more than 3,500 pollutants and their compounds are not controlled at all and can therefore not be found.
6. how dangerous is PET mineral water
The so-called mineral water contains the same pollutants as tap water, because it is partly mixed from springs (which are now also heavily polluted by environmental influences) and tap water.
7. what is the drinking water ordinance
The so-called Drinking Water Ordinance (TVO) applies to the FRG and is intended to regulate the use of drinking water and the impurities and pollutants present in it. This means that water samples are taken at certain intervals and only up to 50 pollutants are tested. If the pollutant load is within the specified limit, everything is normal according to this regulation. However, there are far more than 3,500 pollutants and their compounds which are demonstrably present in our drinking water. These are not tested in the TVO and can therefore logically not be found. In the TVO only pollutants are tested and these are not removed from the drinking water. On the one hand, the TVO is not intended for this and this would not be financially and logistically possible.
8. what is the UNESCO drinking water comparison
In 2012, UNESCO tested the quality of drinking water in 122 countries worldwide, and Germany came in 57th, far behind Holland, Spain and Bangladesh. So much for the drinking water ordinance and the best controlled food.
9. why you do not smell chlorine in tap water
Chlorine is added to tap water to kill germs, so people can't smell it an odorant is also added to neutralize it.
10. how dangerous is chlorine in tap water
Chlorine is a highly toxic industrial chemical and can cause cancer as well as other diseases.
11. how dangerous is lime in tap water
Lime destroys water pipes, instantaneous water heaters, washing machines, bathroom fixtures, etc., thus calcifying our vessels and depositing in the joints. Many get from it among other things kidney stones, heart attack, stroke uvm. This is played down and one speaks here lapidary around the usual age-conditioned calcification.
12. what is the mineral and table water ordinance
In the Mineral and Table Water Ordinance, only up to 20 pollutants are controlled and, as with the TVO, the remaining 3,500 substances are not, of course.
13. are there also pollutants in PET bottled water
PET bottled water is a mixture of spring water and tap water which is carbonated for disinfection and contains the same 3,500 pollutants as our tap water.
14. how dangerous is PET mineral water
Who would like to drink gladly a cocktail from various pollutants can do that for a liter price of 0.60 to over 1.80 € gladly. However, there are healthier and far cheaper ways to produce good drinking water yourself.
15. how dangerous is well water
In Germany, well water is only tested by order of the owner and is not subject to the TVO, so not even 50 pollutants are tested. Conclusion: The quality of well water is often many times worse than tap water.
16. is low mineral water healthy
Drinking water low in minerals has a high absorption capacity for substances and is therefore ideally suited as a solvent as well as a cleansing medium for our body.
17. is our drinking water the best controlled foodstuff
In principle, yes, because no banana is checked for up to 50 substances. However, here only controlled and nothing is removed.
18. what do the limits mean
Limit values in the TVO are values that are allowed to be in our drinking water according to this so-called regulation. Whether these are now harmful to our body and our health plays no role here. The TVO is not intended for this. The decision to drink such water or not must make each person for themselves alone.
19. who controls the water pipeline network
No one. There is no legal basis for the quality of the water flowing in the network. In this respect, we are in a lawless area.
20. why there are so many different water filter systems
There are many producers who pursue different goals, health is not always the focus. But the quality usually prevails and only a critical consumer will also find his ideal system.
21. what filter systems are there
The only systems that are really capable of effectively removing pollutants up to 99.99% are distillation devices and multi-stage reverse osmosis systems. Simple activated carbon filters are only able to remove certain pollutants up to 30%. Water ionizers are not water filters.
22. why are there such large price differences
Since cheap production is not prohibited, and its efficiency is often not controlled, nothing stands in the way of this sale. However, quality has always proven itself and this is still true today. This quality is composed of good food-safe components, best efficiency, high efficiency, long durability, good service and finally a good price-performance ratio.
23. how to get really clean and healthy drinking water
By making sure that I filter my water where it comes out of the tap and that there is no possibility that pollutants, germs or bad frequencies can get into this water.
24. which system can I rely on 100%?
Reverse osmosis, because it has the finest filtration capacity (0.0001 µ) that is currently technically possible.
25. is osmosis water dead water
No, these are fake news and false statements by reverse osmosis critics and the mineral water industry, which no longer hold water when examined closely. There is osmotic pressure in every cell of the body and this is exactly the principle used in reverse osmosis. It is often claimed that because osmosis water has no minerals it is dead water. Minerals do not come from water, but from a good diet and some Himalayan salt. Osmosis water is comparable to distilled water or rain. This was drunk by the primeval people exclusively and also had no minerals.
26. how important are minerals
Minerals are as important as the air we breathe. They set processes in motion and maintain our metabolism, without these minerals no life could exist.
27. where to get good minerals
Water is not intended to provide our body with minerals as they are often not bioavailable to us. The best minerals we get from our diet such as fruits, vegetables and also meat (this will want) or from a good salt (eg Himalayan salt, with over 80 vital minerals), because this is not refined, as well as commercial salt from the supermarket which consists of only two substances such as (sodium and chloride).
28. how dangerous is pipeline pressure for our drinking water
Pipeline pressure is not dangerous for our water at all, because it exists almost everywhere and without it, the water could not reach us at all. Even rain creates pressure when it falls on the earth and a drop explodes. This panic is staged by Fake News and many false reports from certain people to unsettle people and put them in fear, so that they do not even come to the idea of buying an osmosis filter.
29. what is energization
Energization describes a process of bringing water, which has gotten into a state of stress or chaos due to external circumstances, back into an orderly structure through certain mechanisms. For this there are many different possibilities which can be more or less helpful. What exactly is the best process is explained in detail in our blog posts.
30. what can healing stones
Certain healing stones or even crystals can, through their own positive vibrational structure, pass this on to the water (which is an information carrier) and thus also put it into positive vibrations. However, this process is not suitable for removing pollutants from the water, as these must first be removed. Everything else makes no sense here.
32. how important is energization
Energization is very important so that our body cells can optimally absorb and utilize the water. This is mostly not the case with tap water and/or PET bottled water.
33. what are water ionizers
These devices are not water filters, because they do not filter out the relevant pollutants from the water, since these substances serve as the basis for the function of electrolysis. Without these substances, electrolysis could not take place. Only alkaline water is produced which has a very low energy value. However, alkaline water can be produced much healthier and cheaper by reverse osmosis + sodium bicarbonate.
34. what is distillation
This technology is an intermediate solution to produce pure water through an evaporation process by means of boiling. However, this technique achieves a very low yield at very high electricity costs.
35. what is reverse osmosis
Reverse osmosis is a technology developed by NASA over 60 years ago to provide astronauts and soldiers with the purest drinking water at a very high yield and very low cost. Water is passed through a very fine membrane which is able to remove up to 99.99% of all contaminants from drinking water with a fineness of 0.0001 µ. This technology is now used worldwide for the production of drinking water. This technology is now used worldwide for the production of the best drinking water and has now successfully established itself in almost all areas where pure, healthy and tasty drinking water is required.
36. what is back contamination
Recontamination occurs wherever there are no closed filter systems, self-cleaning systems, UV sterilization or quick-change technology. So-called recontamination can occur through room air and body contact. This is excluded with our filter systems.
37. how dangerous is back contamination
Back contamination can cause infections as well as other symptoms and should be avoided urgently.
38. how many filter stages should a good system have?
A good system should have at least 4 filter stages to ensure high quality. This does not include the so-called remineralization stages.
39. how often should the individual filter stages be changed?
epending on the load of the tap water flowing into the filter system, the pre-filters should be changed every 6-12 months, the membranes every 18-24 months. This can be tested by means of a PPM meter in between. If the conductivity continues to increase from over 30 ppm, it is time to change the filters.
40 What is UV sterilization
This technology eliminates any germ contamination in drinking water by means of UV light and is ideally suited for this purification stage.
41 What is Hydrogen ( H2 ) Water
H2 water is osmosis water 1 (H2O molecule) which is additionally enriched with 1 (H2 molecule - hydrogen) and this creates an antioxidant process which is able to capture free radicals and thus protect the organism from premature aging.
42. what is alkaline water
Alkaline water neutralizes acids in the body for a certain time and helps to stop acidosis (disturbance of the acid-base balance). An over-acidified body is very susceptible to many so-called diseases/symptoms and reduces cellular respiration, which is the basis for a good oxygen supply and thus health of our body. Throughout the day our body goes through different acid/alkaline cycles, because acids are also very important for our digestion and metabolism of our food. However, if the acid level is permanently too high, it should be neutralized regularly by means of light sodium bicarbonate filter water.
43. how do i make alkaline water myself?
I add a pinch of baking soda to 1 glass of 250 ml filter water, stir it and drink it in the evening before going to bed. In doing so, I achieve a pH value of over 7.5.
44. why do people still drink tap water
Because these have not yet informed themselves about the real conditions and effects and still believe our tap water is 100% uncontaminated.
45. why people still drink PET bottled water
Because the mineral water industry wants it that way and people have forgotten how to question things.
46. is a filter system difficult to install
No, there are now quick sets which make it possible for any customer to install a filter system within 15 minutes without much effort.
47. how important is the price
Here, as in many other areas, inexpensive devices are often inferior and lack important components such as protection against back contamination, on-site service, warranty, and much more. It usually turns out after some time that there was saved in the wrong area.
48. how important is the service
Since a filter system is a technical device, malfunctions can occur from time to time; good service and quick availability are very important here. This can not provide cheap suppliers.
49. what are the most important components for a good filter system
- 5-stage filter system
- 3-temperatures: Hot, Cold, Room
- Integrated coffee maker
- Integrated ice maker
- Integrated soda fountain
- Closed system
- No recontamination
