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.

Toxic Arsenic in Cornish Private Drinking Water Supplies

Pure H2O RODI Removes Carcinogenic Arsenic from Private Drinking Water Supplies.

A recent study published in Science Reports reveals that some homes in Cornwall with private water supplies (PWS) have levels of arsenic exceeding World Health Organisation guidelines. As a result, householders are

“exposed at concentrations harmful to health… chronic exposure to arsenic in drinking water is a well-documented cause of numerous cancerous and non-cancerous health defects, including cancers of the lung, bladder and skin.”*

How does this happen?
Cornwall is one area of the world with naturally-occurring high levels of arsenic in its geology. The 2016 study by Middleton et al reports there are estimated to be 20,000 – 30,000 PWS wells in Cornwall, with 2,462 PWS households registered with the Drinking Water Inspectorate (the actual number may be much higher). These PWS are the responsibility of their owners and users, rather than any statutory body.

What can be done?
The government advises “installing appropriate treatment that is capable of treating water to a consistently satisfactory quality”.

Our patented Reverse Osmosis with De-Ionisation (RODI) process is the most efficient and cost-effective way of treating your private drinking water supply, ensuring total removal of Arsenic along with a myriad of other contaminants and impurities both naturally-occurring and man-made.

Additional Benefits of the Pure H2O RODI Purifier

Our RODI purifier protects your health and gives you total peace of mind about the safety of your water. And not forgetting that it gives you delicious tasting water, more palatable than any other. It is purer than all bottled water brands and kind to the environment, with a 95+% carbon footprint reduction compared to bottled, and zero plastics use and waste.

Our RODI purifier is typically installed under your kitchen sink for maximum convenience, but we can tailor our systems to suit your needs and would be happy to advise on the best installation for your home.
