Water Saving Week 2018 with Pure H2O

Water Saving Week 19 – 23 March, 2018

Did you know that despite abundant rainfall, water supplies in the UK are under pressure? Waterwise warns:

“the UK has less available water per person that most other European countries… and the South of England has less water available per person than some African countries”. (1)

This threatens not only water security for humans, but also that of wildlife and aquatic ecosystems which depends on healthy, abundant riverways.

The UK is one of the highest water consumers, using on average a massive 150 litres per person, per day. Reducing water waste helps protect one of our most vital environmental resources and it saves you money, too.

The main message is simple: use only the water you need.

Environmental concerns are at the heart of everything we do at The Pure H2O Company. We’re proud that our tap water purifiers, kitchen taps and other products help people reduce their environmental impact whilst protecting their health and enjoying their lifestyle.

Quatreau Kitchen Taps: dispensing only what you need, in an instant.

Quatreau Touch

Waterwise recommends you don’t boil more water than you need and — we make this easy with our Quatreau range of taps which deliver exactly the amount of boiling water you need, straight into your cup, teapot or saucepan.

There’s no need to waste water whilst you keep your ‘cold’ tap running until it gets cold enough for a refreshing drink, either — just select the Chilled option on Quatreau Touch or Quatreau SmartTap for instant, efficient chilled water.

Water Efficient

Our tap water purifiers don’t just guarantee water purity, providing unlimited drinking water free from the microplastics, pesticides, neurotoxins, hormones, medications and heavy metals found in tap water; they are extremely water efficient, too. In fact, we are the only company to have achieved high levels of water efficiency in our domestic systems.

To get technical, our reverse osmosis (RO) process achieves 2:1 production ratio whilst our reverse osmosis with de-ionisation (RODI) process achieves 3:1. Additionally, we use unique, high-quality micro switches in our systems to ensure water efficiency, whilst RO systems from other companies only use basic mechanical valves which are much less efficient. Our purifiers also have an inbuilt intelligent management system that minimises water use whilst maximising water purity.

Water treated in this way is not only water-efficient, pure and safe, it’s also much more environmentally friendly than bottled water and its associated single-use plastics pollution, carbon footprint, air-miles and resource degradation.

So, it’s a win-win on the environment front with The Pure H2O Company’s tap water purifiers and multifunction and smart kitchen taps.

Find out more at www.PureH2O.co.uk, call us on 01483 617 000 or email customerservice@pureh2o.co.uk — we’d be delighted to help you protect your health with pure water, maximise your lifestyle and reduce your environmental impact, too.

The Pure H2O Company enters the Marine market with the Quatreau SmartTap.

We’re delighted to announce that as well as supplying domestic and commercial settings with our multifunction taps and water purifiers, we now serve the marine market.

Maintaining ample quantities of drinking water of sufficient quality poses several problems to the boat owner, most significantly finding storage space for plastic bottled mineral water, or risking the effects of stomach-churning impurities present in a fresh water tank.

The Quatreau SmartTap solves both problems and delivers additional benefits. The compact drinks station dispenses chilled, sparkling, boiling and / or ambient water at the touch of a button, which means no trips to the supermarket for mineral water, no lost storage space for all those plastic bottles, and no kettle required on board for hot drinks.

MotorBoat & Yachting* features the Quatreau SmartTap in their November issue, commenting:

“Really convenient and will put a stop to the familiar bottled water avalanche every time you open the fridge after a rough trip”

Recently featured in Boating Business*, innovator and company M.D. Roger Wiltshire advises that the Quatreau SmartTap is suitable for retrofit or new builds and is available in a range of finishes including brushed or polished solid 316 stainless steel, with left and right hand options.

The recently refitted Mia Elise II*, a 197 ft custom motor yacht with impressive leisure and entertainment facilities currently available for charter, benefits from the Quatreau SmartTap. Accommodating 12 guests and 15 crew, the yacht’s water requirements are assured thanks to the high volumes delivered by our Quatreau SmartTap, with purity guaranteed by the addition of our RODI water purifier.

The Quatreau SmartTap was also specified on performance cruiser Elfje. As Yachting World* reports, energy efficiency and sustainability were top of owner Wendy Schmidt’s priorities for her custom built 172ft ketch. Quatreau SmartTap ensures the lowest possible energy consumption and highest performing thermal insulation, its solid 316 stainless steel build ensuring strength and longevity with low environmental impact.

The SmartTap’s standard in-line filtration removes impurities from the vessel’s water tank, but for extra peace of mind specifiers and vessel owners will undoubtedly opt for the optional under-counter water purifier which delivers up to 99.99% pure water, guaranteed free from micro-organisms and every other health-compromising contaminant or impurity. This purifier is the only system on the market to carry EPA certification for the removal of micro-organisms, and the Quatreau SmartTap is the only one of its kind manufactured in the UK, which guarantees excellent build quality compared to imported systems.

Contact The Pure H2O Company to specify the Quatreau SmartTap with optional tap water purifier in your vessel: call 01483 617 000 email customerservice@pureh2o.co.uk or visit our website http://www.pureh2o.co.uk/taps.html

Guest Blog for KB-Network: Smart Taps

After the launch of our new The Pureh2o SmartTap™ we recently hosted a guest blog for KB-Network, *the* place to go for the latest information on kitchens and bathrooms. KB-Network asked our M.D. Roger Wiltshire for his input on the differences between ‘normal’ and ‘smart’ taps, and why the trade should invest in the latter.

We think you’ll find the blog useful; it covers topics including British made products, environmental sustainability and what sets the The Pureh2o SmartTap™ apart from others on the market. Here’s an excerpt:

What sets your taps apart from all the other ‘smart taps’ on the market?

The Pureh2o SmartTap™ delivers quite a few unique benefits that set it apart from others available today:

1. The Pureh2o SmartTap™ is the only smart tap on the market to integrate with Pureh2o RO or RODI tap water purification systems…

2. It’s really important for consumers and their suppliers to understand that a lot of companies are now using the same boiling tap supplied from one Chinese manufacturer. We feel that the quality and reliability of our British manufactured Pureh2o SmartTap™ offers consumers the safest, highest quality tap that is backed up by our UK-based pre and post sales customer service and technical support…

To read the guest blog in full, visit KB-Network and for more information and to order The Pureh2o SmartTap™, click here or call us on 01483 617 000.

Our thanks to the team at KB-Network, it was a pleasure to be your guest blogger!

Press Release: The Pureh2o SmartTap™ drinks station

We’re delighted to announce the launch of the The Pureh2o SmartTap™ the brand new compact drinks point delivering a modular choice of boiling, sparkling, chilled and / or ambient water. Several finishes, a modular approach to water options and upgrades including countertop drainer are offered, for full customisation in all settings domestic and commercial.

The Pureh2o SmartTap™  is the latest in our range of multifunction taps, following the success of Quatreau, our 4 function kitchen tap with touchscreen control panel. Like Quatreau, the all-new Pureh2o SmartTap™ is capable of delivering either filtered mains water or up to 99.99% pure water with the optional RODI tap water purifier. Pureh2o taps are the only ones on the market to integrate with these pure water systems.

Whether specified with filtered or pure water, the Pureh2o SmartTap™ sub-sink Hydrocell® 551 system offers a modular choice of boiling, chilled and sparkling as well as ambient water. The Hydrocell® unit incorporates easy to install and maintain quick fit filters and CO2 cartridges as standard, and multimedia filters to reduce impurities found in mains fed water.

LED lit buttons ensure ease of use, the consistently safe, clean efficient flow and optional safety lock for boiling offers peace of mind. The optional sink drainer with integral drain turns the tap in to a stand-alone counter top drinks station. Infinite expansion of the boiling capacity is ideal for high-density environments.

Installed with the optional Pureh2o RODI water purifier, the Pureh2o SmartTap™ delivers 99.99% pure water; purer by far than all bottled water brands, obviating the negative environmental impact of plastic bottled water and free from the myriad of impurities found in tap water. The RODI water purifier can also connect to steam ovens, coffee machines, ice makers and fridges for exceptional clarity and purity of taste and appearance, making it an ideal system for restaurants and hotels, as used at Belmond Le Manoir Aux Quat’ Saisons, Oxford and Great Fosters, Surrey:

“Food and beverage are of paramount importance and are reflected in our overall reputation… After 30 years in the hotel business, I was amazed at the difference that the quality of water could bring to many of our services.” Richard Young, General Manager Great Fosters Hotel, Surrey.
