Filter Systems Australia wishes everyone a happy World Water Day!
Adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, the first World Water Day was observed on March 22, 1993, to raise awareness and inspire the masses to tackle the global water and sanitation crisis.
This year’s theme- “accelerating change’ aims at increasing action, ambition, and innovation to guarantee that every individual has access to safe drinking water, clean bathing options, and adequate options for sanitation. With an attempt to urge government bodies, civic societies, and masses to accelerate progress towards reaching ‘Sustainable Development Goal 6’, this year’s World Water Day will focus on fulfilling the commitments of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development that would ensure Water, Sanitation and hygiene (WASH) is maintained as the core elements in every sector.
How to Bring about the Change?

A water softener is an appliance or filtering device designed to remove calcium and magnesium from water. Most people don't realize that all water isn't the same, specifically in terms of chemical composition. Certain types of water contain high levels of calcium and magnesium due to absorption from the earth, which makes it extremely hard water. Water is considered soft when it cannot absorb these minerals or contains them in small quantities. The water that comes from lakes and streams is typically naturally soft.
However, underground water in areas with high levels of gypsum, chalk, and limestone is generally hard. So, to ensure that water for domestic use is soft, a water softener is employed to eliminate the minerals that make it hard. Thus, softening water removes magnesium and calcium, and other metal cations from the water.
What is Hard Water?
Hard water has a significant amount of minerals such as magnesium, calcium, and, occasionally,

Nowadays, a water filter system is a must for every household. However, most of them are not compact enough to fit in your kitchen, and, in some cases, they can change the kitchen's appearance. A compact undersink reverse osmosis water filter system is your ideal choice as it is conveniently tucked in your kitchen, allowing you to keep space and prevent any modifications to your kitchen. Like other water filters, the undersink filters come with various filtration methods that eliminate different kinds of impurities from water and make it safe to use. The filtration system's water tap can be connected directly to the washbasin to ensure you can utilise clean water on demand.

Reverse osmosis system is the most well-known among the many types of water filtration systems. In this post, we'll look at the many reverse osmosis filter benefits to let you know the reason behind this. We'll also provide you with any possible negatives associated with reverse osmosis water. Studying these two perspectives will help determine whether reverse osmosis is suitable for your family.
Water is an essential part of human lives. That is why the UN recognizes that access to clean water is a fundamental right. The demand for everyone to have clean water is a part of the UN Sustainable Development Goals to create a better world for everyone.
Every person should have at minimum 20-50 Litres of clean, safe water daily to cook, drink and bathe in. We're far from this objective, and it'll require a massive effort from all of us to bring this goal to fruition.
A lot is being said, a lot is being believed, a lot of is being assumed about the novel coronavirus. The COVID-19 outbreak has made us all more cautious about our health and more observant of our hygiene practice than ever before. Amongst all the concerns and uncertainties that have been surfacing during the pandemic, many of you may have wondered about the spread of the coronavirus through water.

While looking for water filters, you will find many companies promoting their water filtration solutions using the word “TDS” – asserting that it is their key method to test water quality. TDS, which stands for total dissolved solids, is the measurement of the total amount of dissolved particles like salts, chemicals, minerals and metals in the water. The reason why many water filter businesses and homeowners commonly use a TDS test to measure the quality of water is that it is easy, quick and cheap.

Water is an inevitable resource that we need to survive on this planet. However, most of us may not realise what importance water has in our day-to-day life, besides consumption, until they run into a problem with their water supply and are unable to do different sorts of household tasks.
We have all struggled with rinsing the shampoo out of your hair, waited hours for the washing machine to complete a cycle, dealt with taps taking forever to fill a bathtub or sink, washed hands under a tickle of water, dealt with clogged drains and other plumbing situations at some point in time which were bad enough to call in a plumber. But what happens when it turns out that the issue is not with the plumbing or drainage system, but with the flow of water.

Imagine the adventure of spending an endless summer hitting the road with your family or loved ones in a caravan.
A wonderful feeling, isn’t it? The freedom to go where your will takes you, with your home-like comfort, just stopping where your heart feels like - seems like the perfect adventure to hop on with your loved ones. But there are certain challenges and concerns linked to caravan travel and one of them is finding quality water to drink through the journey.
When embarking on a caravan excursion, having access to drinkable water is necessary to keep yourself hydrated and in good health, but counting on streams and rivers on the way for clean water can be a mistake.
Is the water coming from your tap good enough to drink or should you invest in a water filter to get better quality water from every tap turned on?
While turning a tap on, if you ever wondered about what quality of the water that comes out, you are not alone! Moreover, you can be confident as the water is tested thoroughly and potential contaminants are removed through chlorine disinfection before it reaches your tap. What you might need to worry about is if it is good enough to drink every day without any impact on health and most importantly, if it beats the quality of filtered water?
