Water Softening

Here at The Pure H2O Company we understand how frustrating it is to deal with the problems that hard water causes. Not all of us are lucky enough to live in an area where soft water is natural, and you have to pay out for the expenses hard water causes.

Hard water can cost you a lot of money over time and increases your cleaning time – meaning you are spending a lot of time at the washing up sink. Water softening is a way to stop these problems occurring, meaning you will not be paying out to fix appliances that have broken within your home due to limescale build up.

Money is thrown away when you don’t go through the process of water softening, it can be quite shocking when you look at the actual figures of money that is being wasted.

If you are a property owner, looking after your home should be your main priority. If you go through the process of water softening, it removes impurities from the water, hydrates your skin and improves your bathing water quality. Soft water is even proven to help with conditions such as eczema and psoriasis – you can’t go wrong. This is why you should really invest into a water softener with The Pure H2O Company.

Water softeners use a process called ‘ion exchange’ to remove the calcium and magnesium minerals from your water as it enters your home. These are the minerals that cause limescale and removing them makes the water ‘soft’. So If you want to eliminate limescale and improve the health and wellbeing of your household, then you should buy a water softener from us today.

We offer three different ways to soften your water here at The Pure H2O Company. No matter what budget you may have in mind or what your needs are, I’m sure you can find the perfect solution to your hard water problems on our website.

We have an incredibly skilled and experienced team here at The Pure H2O Co., we can offer you lots of advice whether it is on installation, servicing, surveying or warranty support, we are always here to support you throughout this journey.

You will always be backed up by our Customer Services team as well, so you know when working with us you will always be supported. We want to ensure the experience our customers have when using our services is exceptional, and is our main priority.

Limescale Problems

We are The Pure H2O Company and we understand the everyday problems you face with the buildup of limescale within your home. Does your water cause a buildup of limescale within your appliances, causing you unnecessary expenses? If you are having limescale problems within your property, our team at The Pure H2O Co. can install a water softener within your home, effectively eliminating the problem.

Hard water impurities like calcium and magnesium carbonates as well as iron are the cause of the hard build up within your appliances. Over time, this build up reduces the heat emission from heating elements and that means increased costs for heating water and the home. Not only that, the unsightly scale coats glass shower screens, appliances such as shower heads, surfaces and pipe work, all of which eventually require replacing so the true costs are extensive yet something that can simply be solved by installing a water softener within your home. The salt efficient water softeners we offer you will not only remove the problems that hard water causes you, but also bring you a lot of benefits.

If you install one of our salt and water efficient softeners, limescale will no longer be a problem, you will spend less time washing up and cleaning surfaces, your energy bill will not be rising through inefficiencies. In addition to this, soft water improves bathing water quality and leaves your skin hydrated and soft. Soft water is even proven to help with various conditions such as eczema and psoriasis; it is really something you should invest in.

Our team here at Pure H2O is incredibly experienced, and understands these problems you are experiencing with limescale inside out. When installing your water softener we can offer you advice on installation, servicing, surveying and warranty support. Our customer service team is also always here to help you out, so you know when you are working with us throughout the entire process, you will be supported all the way. Our customer’s wellbeing is our main priority, and we want to ensure you are 100% satisfied when we are dealing with your limescale problems.

We offer three different ways to soften your water here at The Pure H2O Co.

The Green Parent: pure water for children

Have you discovered The Green Parent magazine? The April / May issue explores foraging, shares 50 ways to get fresh air with young children, plus there are regular features on child-led learning, family life and the best natural products for children.

We’re so glad to be on page 12 of the current issue, explaining why we believe that there are no acceptable levels of contaminants in the water your children drink.

In 2013, the Guardian reported that levels of a toxic pesticide, more than 100 times the EU limit were present in a source of English drinking water. The discovery of record levels of Metaldehyde – slug poison – was reported by Natural England and the Environment Agency. This problem is not going to go away, because water utilities have no methods for removal.

In fact, tap water contains a myriad of impurities including chemicals, pesticides, heavy metals, hormones and medications. Bottled water is damaging to the environment and still contains impurities. Luckily, there is a solution to safe hydration – Pure H2O.

Our RODI (reverse osmosis with de-ionisation) tap water purifiers typically fit under your kitchen sink and designed specifically for treating UK tap water, they remove 99.99% of organic and inorganic impurities, ensuring a safe source of drinking water for your family.

It tastes pure, too so your children will more readily drink enough water.

As Renee Elliot, founder of Planet Organic says:

“Children absorb impurities at 10 x the rate of adults so it’s important they avoid toxins in food and water. I’ve been drinking Pure H2O for over 25 years and I wouldn’t give my children anything else; it’s the safest, most natural drinking water and has a great taste.”

Are you keen that your children avoid toxins and impurities? Do your children find tap water unpalatable? Pure H2O is the answer. Visit our website www.PureH2O.co.uk to find out more: or call us on 01483 617 000 we’d be happy to answer your questions and advise how we can help your family enjoy safe, pure water.

And visit The Green Parent online or pick up the latest edition, we’re sure that you’ll find it full of helpful and inspirational features.

Eve Kalinik: Understanding Hydration with Pure H2O Co. Ltd

Here’s guest blogger, Eve Kalinik, on the importance of adequate hydration with pure water

Hydration, or the lack thereof, is something that I’m consistently reinforcing with my clients, many of us wonder why we have afternoon slumps, food cravings, headaches and sluggish digestions but often this can be a simple fact of not taking in enough water. When you think as we are almost 60% water and pretty much every cellular process is conducted in a water environment its no wonder we need to make sure that our bodies are well hydrated. This also contributes to supporting digestive processes & juices as well as transporting oxygen and vital nutrients in the blood and around the body. And a hydrated body also burns fat more efficiently. Fact.

As a general guide we need to take in around 2 litres per day but this should be increased if you are exercising or traveling. Whilst pure water is the obvious and most bio available source, hydration isn’t just about straight up h20. It is also important to eat plenty of water rich food based sources too. Cucumber, green leafy veg and strawberries are up there at around 90% water but generally most vegetables will contain good levels. Try not to get so fixated on having a certain amount of fluid per day but also ensure to have hydrating foods as part of your daily intake. Juices & smoothies are a great way to max this but making sure you are hitting your 8 portions of veggies per day will have an impact on your hydration levels too. When drinking water the key thing is to make sure that your water comes from a clean source, trying to avoid plastic bottles where possible as these contain hormone mimicking substances and other chemicals that can leach into the water itself. Repeated and long term exposure to these are not beneficial for our health so try to buy your water in glass bottles where you can. Investing in a home filtration unit is well worth the money, rather than wasting it on filter jugs that don’t get rid of a lot of the contaminants and general nasties. In my opinion the best filtration system uses a reverse osmosis process, like the pureh2o.co.uk systems, that also takes out hormones, since most regular filters won’t do this.

Here’s some more of my better hydrating tips…

WAKE & HYDRATE – start the day as soon as you wake up with a glass of water. The body will be pretty thirsty first thing so try to get into a routine with this. Warm water and lemon juice can be a nice twist and also stimulates digestive processes.

MAKE IT INTERESTING – add things like slices of lemon, mandolin sliced cucumber, fresh mint or fresh lime & pinch cayenne can make all the difference and certainly make your water look and taste more inspiring. Avoid the flavoured waters as these often contain high levels of sugar.

SIP THROUGHOUT THE DAY – don’t get to the end of the day and realise that you haven’t had enough and chug back in one go. We can over hydrate ourselves too so little and often is the key mantra here.

WINE NOT WATER – when it comes to meal times that is! Avoid drinking a lot of water when you are eating as this can dilute gastric juice secretion and impair breaking down food. A small glass of wine can assist this though.

HAVE A GOAL – buy a beautiful jug and have it on your desk at work or in the kitchen. That way you’ll be more inclined to drink regularly. A plastic bottle with its label peeling off isn’t the most appealing things and clients often tell me they don’t have time to go to the water machine so having this to hand will make it a lot easier. Check out BKR bottles that are chic and make you want to drink more.

HERBAL TEAS COUNT – in all their variety are another great and delicious way of increasing your intake. Coffee has a dehydrating effect so just stick to one organic freshly ground cup in the morning after breakfast.

Mineral Supplement Linked to Dementia

The Telegraph newspaper recently reported on a study which found an increased risk of dementia in women taking calcium supplements, who have previously had a stroke.

“Patients who had survived a stroke were  seven times more likely to go on to develop dementia if they took the daily supplement, say scientists at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden.”

Reassuringly, organic calcium found in food is perfectly safe. As Eve Kalinik advised in her recent blog for us: Mythbusting: Osteoporosis, there are plenty of food sources of calcium, as well as lifestyle changes, that can be taken by women seeking to reduce their risk of osteoporosis.

We know from our Mythbusting blog series that inorganic minerals found in tap water and supplements do not support health, cannot be absorbed by the body, and are therefore unnecessary – and according to the study the Telegraph reported on – downright dangerous, in some cases.

Neither mineral supplements, nor tap water, nor ‘remineralised’ water is useful to our bodies. All the minerals we need as humans can only be derived from food; plants convert inorganic minerals to organic, which the human body is capabable of asbsorbing and putting to use to protect our health.
