Sustainable Water Systems for the Home: Softeners, RODI Pure Water & Quatreau Tap.
Crucial to the design and planning stage of your new home or renovation project is sustainability after the build is complete. In this article we take a look at water systems serving appliances, heating systems and drinking water supply in the home and what can be done to safeguard your investment.
When it comes to kitchens and bathrooms, a softener system may be a wise choice. Softeners improve the bathing and hand washing experience especially in hard water areas, affording more comfortable skin and reduction in detergent use by around 50%.
By removing scale they also protect all appliances that use water: wet heating systems, washing machines, dishwashers and so on. This means your appliances and systems are less likely to breakdown and need repair or replacement, avoiding further financial outlay and consumption of resources.
‘Home’ evokes thoughts of design, comfort and convenience. It’s a place of safety and we take the safety of our water for granted. But you may have heard recent news stories about water quality, most recently that levels of cyanobacteria – or ‘blue-green algae’ as its commonly known – are massively increasing in the UK’s lakes, leading to fears it is present in UK tap water. Perhaps surprisingly, water treatment plants do not routinely test for cyanobacteria even though it’s a neurotoxin linked to the development of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
So is now the time to consider safe and sustainable alternatives to tap water? Many people opt for bottled water, but this involves high levels of plastic use and waste, not to mention food miles. A sustainable alternative that can be installed in your home either during your renovation / build project or afterwards is a RODI (Reverse Osmosis with De-Ionisation) purifier.
A RODI purifier typically fits under the kitchen sink. It automatically ‘cleans’ tap water of naturally-occurring and man-made impurities including disease-causing micro-organisms, pesticides from runoff, chemicals, medications and hormones. Studies show that the RODI process produces the purest water and is also environmentally responsible, achieving a 95%+ lower carbon footprint compared to drinking bottled water.
The result is 99.99% pure water delivered through an unobtrusive small tap fitted in any kitchen sink. The Quatreau tap system, which delivers RODI pure water as boiling, chilled, sparkling and hot/cold from a single, touch-screen tap, is also available – visit http://www.quatreau.com
So when it comes to water and the home, don’t forget to plan for the sustainability of your water systems to reduce future costs and safeguard your water supply.
