Water Purification

Water Purification will soon be one of the biggest issues of our time. Best to get prepared and educated on the subject. You can check out our Pinterest page for information on the subject and see the different solutions below. If ever there is a cause to get behind, this is it!

Water Purification Methods


Water Distillation catches the condensation produced by boiling water, removing minerals and contaminants in the process.

Reverse Osmosis Filtration System forces water molecules through a semi-permeable membrane, leaving organic contaminants, toxins, bacteria, salts, etc. behind.

Carbon Filtering uses Activated Charcoal Water Filter used for removing chlorine, sediment, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), viruses, bacteria, and taste and odour from water.

Ultraviolet Light Filters kill mould, bacterial and viral contaminants, including giardia and cryptosporidium, by passing water through an ultraviolet light source.



Multiple Level Filtration System Ceramic Water Filters are among the stages used in these systems that address contaminants in various stages.
