Research in to the Australian water treatment process has risen concerns amongst home owners regarding the treatment of drinking water by private entities around the globe. The main point of concern relates back to the country spread controversy over water Fluoridation.
An informative article released by Sureaqua, portable water filter company, has stirred debate online over how drinking water is treated, and just how much Fluoride is used in the process. As pointed out in the article, it is quintessential that our water is supplied to at a certain level of quality before it is safe for human use and consumption, but to what extent is it dowsed in byproducts (mainly Fluoride and Chlorine) to achieve this?
"Initially we set out to create series of articles that informed readers and empowered them with the know how of water and their world. We didn't expect to be as surprised as we were when we found the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines: National Water Quality Management Strategy 2011, which was created for water treatment companies," said Robert Domanko, Founder and Director of Sureaqua.
As identified by the Sureaqua article, The Water Treatment Process, the quality of water is decided on and deemed worthy or unworthy according to three simple criterion: taste, smell and aesthetic. It is then noted that while "concentrations of byproducts should be kept as low as possible, efforts to achieve this should never jeopardize effective disinfection."
The article does acknowledge the fact that water is treated differently in different countries, but as pointed out in a previous series of articles by Sureaqua, Fluoride is still used by 5% of the world in water treatment processes, including Australia and the United States.
"While the concentration of chemicals used in the treatment of our water may be out of our control in the short term, we urge readers to take responsibility, and instead of pointing fingers, choose to take control of your own water supplies," continued Mr. Domanko.
