What are the Guides?
You may well be aware of the mounting concern expressed in the media over the deterioration
of the quality of water supplied to our homes. As a direct result of long-term pollution, we
cannot afford to ignore the fact that this precious resource is nowhere near as pure as we might
imagine it to be.
On the face of it, we could be expected to blame the water companies if the quality of our drinking
water is not up to standard. It should be remembered, however, that the water supplied to our homes
is exactly the same as that supplied to industry. The same water that we drink is also used for
cleaning streets, processing chemicals, irrigating fields, fire-fighting and countless other requirements.
When you realise that human consumption accounts for less that 3% of all water used, it seems nonsensical
that 100% of the water supplied by the water companies should be fit for drinking. The water companies
do their best, but even they admit that it is an impossible task for them to remove completely all pollutants,
given the enormity of the problems and the huge financial resources required.
There are a variety of different water treatment technologies, each designed to treat specific water
conditions and to remove certain contaminants. But because of their specialised nature, and because
water conditions vary dramatically from region to region, not every system is ideal in every
situation, and some solutions are not obvious. Here at Fresh Water Filter Company, we have
been dealing with the wide range of water treatment systems for over 17 years, and our call-team has
experience of almost every kind of installation there is. Put simply, the Guides are the sum of that
Each Guide is an informative discussion, designed to help you, our customer, with your
concerns about water. The Guides have "Question and Answer" sections, but they are much
more than that. Each Guide will help you learn more about an aspect of Water Treatment, formulate
the questions you want to ask, and arrive at the optimum solution to your particular problem.
Water in Nature
For millions of years, nature has recycled and purified the world's water. But today's environment
is greatly changed from that even a few hundred years ago. The water that comes out of your tap
is quite different from the crystal water bubbling up from a mineral spring.
This Guide explains what happens to water in nature, how it is "harvested" and delivered to you by
the water companies, and why it is not necessarily as pure as you imagined it to be.

Water for your Life!
"You are what you eat". In today's challenging world, that saying is more true than
ever, but it also applies to what you drink. We all
know that to fight the stress and rigours of daily life, to stay young, healthy, and to look good,
it is more important than ever to be careful about what we eat and drink, the lifestyle we lead, and
the environment we live in. This Guide looks into all aspects of a healthy, modern lifestyle,
and how pure water could help.
I want Water for a Healthier Lifestyle!
This Guide will help those who are having problems with their existing water treatment installation,
even if that installation was not originally purchased from us. The Guide is designed as a trouble-shooting aid,
which will help you diagnose the problem, and give you instructions on how to correct it if possible. For
problems where expert attention is absolutely necessary, this Guide will let you schedule an appointment
with one of our engineers.
