Water is one of our most vital sources on the planet. It’s all around us; 70% of the human brain is water, and there are roughly 326 million trillion gallons of water on Earth! As one of our most important resources, and with growing populations and more and more need for water everyday, it is vital that we protect this shared resource for future generations.

One of our partners here at Filters.com is Suez Environment, a world leader in water treatment. They recently put together a really inspiring YouTube video about how they’re working to revolutionize and digitize the way that we clean water. Watch the video below to hear them talking about why they love their work, but more important what its impact has on the water supply in the world. We are so excited that our filters are used by Suez and that we are a part of making the world’s water supply cleaner!

Great info about disinfecting your private well from etrlabs.com:

Well disinfection can eliminate or reduce many different kinds of harmful bacteria (germs, viruses and microorganisms), as well as non-harmful bacteria that can cause unpleasant tastes or odors. A change in your water’s taste, color or smell may not always be a health concern, but it could be a sign of serious contamination problems. You should disinfect when:

  • Coliform bacteria are present
  • After flooding of a well
  • After plumbing installation or changes
  • After casing or pump repairs
  • During the start up of seasonal wells
  • When taste changes or odors are present
  • As part of annual well maintenance

Unfortunately, many people use the wrong disinfecting agent and may do more harm than good to their water supply and their health. Laundry bleach should not be used for disinfecting a well, it should be used for laundry purposes only, that is what is was created for. This type of bleach is not pure and may contain harmful toxins which is why you can not drink or bathe with the water while it is in your well water system. Routine chemical disinfection is critical to maintaining a safe private water supply. Why not use a safe product specifically designed to treat well water.

An estimated 1.8 billion people lack access to safe drinking water. Kohler Co., a global leader in the plumbing industry, has developed a ceramic filtration system called KOHLER Clarity and will work with World Vision, iDE and Water Mission, among others, to enable people in remote regions to access safe, reliable drinking water. The system was designed to bring aspirational products to an affordable price point so NGOs and end users do not have to choose form over function.
