Why Do People Prefer to Drink Filtered Water?

Sterra appreciates the growing knowledge, assessment, and practices of safe drinking water in the general population. More and more people are learning about the health hazards associated with unfiltered and non-purified water. Here’s why most people are shifting toward safe drinking practices;

Filtered water is free from hard minerals

There are certain chemical compounds that have a very low solubility in water. In general, the sulfates, oxalates, and group 2 metals (of the periodic table) can be soluble in water in very low minute amounts, but when ingested, they can precipitate and form renal stones. The quantity of group 2 metals in the water determines the hardness of the water. Some innocent people may be oblivious that they are consuming hard water. It is only until they develop renal stones, and go through excruciating pain, that they realize that the culprit was the water they were drinking.

Good filtration plants are capable of removing these large chemical compounds so that you don’t ingest these and develop complications later on in your life.

Filtration removes Parasites and their Ova

There are a number of flatworms, tapeworms, roundworms, etc., that have a bimodal life cycle. A part of their life is spent as eggs, called Ova, and the other half as active parasites. Some of the examples include Giardia Lamblia, Cryptosporidium, and Ascaris Lumbricoides, to name a few. These are harmful parasites that can lead to diarrhea, dysentery, or emaciation, depending on the parasite that you’ve ingested. They are all water-borne and can easily be prevented by drinking filtered water.

A good water filter may even remove bacteria!

Depending on the quality of the filter and the pore size, most water filters these days can completely remove bacteria and their endotoxins and exotoxins (the part of the bacteria that produce disease). This is a landmark victory for the third-world countries where water is scarce, and the scant sources of water are heavily inundated with bacteria. A decent amount of people tragically fall victims to Cholera, which is caused by the bacteria; Vibrio Cholerae, and ultimately die due to dehydration from incessant diarrhea. These are all avoidable deaths that could have been avoided in the first place through a good and safe water drinking practice and, in the event of contracting the disease, through fluid resuscitation.

Filtered water removes microplastics in the water

A growing concern for health experts around the world is the growing concentration of plastics in clean water streams. The latest research found an identifiable amount of microplastics in 80% of the randomized individuals from which the researcher took blood samples. This is alarming and calls for action. Luckily, the filtration pores in most filtered waters are small enough to filter off these microplastics, so you don’t consume microplastics in the drinking water at least. Moreover, filtration can remove chlorine from water, abating the chances of contracting colorectal and bladder cancers.

Filtered water contains all the healthy electrolytes and minerals

Though we mentioned earlier that filtered water is free from the hazardous minerals, filtered water actually contains a handsome amount of the other minerals and electrolytes that are imperative for proper functions and health. These electrolytes include sodium, potassium, manganese, zinc, and acceptable amounts of calcium and magnesium.

Filtered water tastes good

The unfiltered tap water tastes bland and flat. This is because of the many chemicals, chlorine, and bacteria that make the taste of the water very unpleasant. Filtration removes all junk and gunk from the water, making it taste fresh, clean, and sweeter.

Filtered water doesn’t cost an arm and a leg

The next big challenge after the acceptance of safe drinking practices is the price of bottled water. Most mineral water companies are extremely expensive, and using bottled water for drinking will further culminate the ever-growing bills from groceries. Fortunately, water filters are a single-time investment that will have you covered for a very long time. You’d only have to spend on timely maintenance, i.e., changing the filter, which happens after months of usage (depending on how polluted the water is before filtration).

Water filtration is saving the environment

Apart from the price factor of bottled waters, the biggest concern with bottled mineral water is that they’re packaged in a single-use plastic bottle. Even in countries that religiously handle waste and emphasize recycling, most of these plastic bottles find their way to the landfills or oceans, resulting in intractable land and water pollution. The carbon footprint from manufacturing plastic bottles is tremendous, and the marine life is suffering the consequences of these bottles. The environmentalists and the activists realize this hazard and are hell-bent on deriding the use of single-use plastics to save the planet.

Sterra Singapore is a trusted household name

Sterra debuted fairly recently and was incepted with the vision of creating safe water drinking habits in Singapore. The brains behind the company set to change the water drinking habits in Singapore after observing the safe water drinking practices in South Korea, and thus developed the brand; Sterra, which features Sterra Water Dispensers, Sterra Air purifiers, and Sterra dehumidifiers. The contrasting habits of Koreans vs. Singaporeans compelled the need for change as most Singaporeans spend a considerable amount of their time boiling water for sterilization and then keeping it in fridge for cooling down.

Therefore, Sterra was born with the mission to create high-quality, functional, sleek, and minimalistic home products at revolutionary prices and become every home’s partner.

Sterra Water Dispensers:

The Chromium Grey Sterra S™ Tankless Water Purifier is the best seller of Sterra Water Dispensers. Starting at 1699 SGD, the Sterra Tankless Water Purifier is the epitome of perfect water dispensers. It is a sleek and artistic design of a compact and very light water dispenser that instantly dispenses four different temperatures of water; hot, cold, room temperature, and warm temperature (temperature range of 4, 25, 40, and 87OC). It houses a 4-stage filtration system that removes all suspended particles, solids, chlorine, pathogenic bacteria, and odors, giving you fresh and clean water without the metallic or rusty taste. This is due to the tremendously small pore size of just 0.001 microns, only ten times as large as that of reverse osmosis plants.

The Sterra Tankless Water Purifier comes with UV automated sterilization that sterilizes the nozzle as it dispenses water. The most interesting thing about it is that it has a self-maintenance feature. I.e., it has an electric sterilizer module that self-cleans the internal water flow through electrolysis sterilization. Moreover, you can control the volume you wish to dispense; 120, 250, and 550 ml or as much as you like. The Sterra Water dispensers also come with a filter change indicator, notifying you when it’s time to change the filter to ensure that you get fresh and premium quality water every time.

With the Tankless water dispenser, you get free delivery and installation, one year warranty, three years of warranty for touch screen and water leaks, two filter sets worth 350 SGD for free, and you can redeem a complimentary lifetime warranty extension for water leakage and your touch panel if you post a photo review of Sterra water purifier on social media.

Sterra Air Purifiers:

At just 349 SGD, the Sterra Breeze™ True HEPA-13 Air Purifier is an amazing air purifier that creates a clean microenvironment at your home or workplace. The Sterra Air purifier can eliminate and obliterate up to 99.97% of all the environmental pollutants, viruses, and bacteria that are up to 0.1-2.5 micrometers in diameter at your home or workplace using the medical-grade, 3-in-1 HEPA Filter that’s only to be found in the Sterra Air purifiers. This is the same filter used in hospitals for the decontamination of airborne microbes.

The Sterra Air Purifier eliminates PM 2.5 (particulate matter that is two and a half microns or less in diameter), allergens, dust and dust mites, harmful chemicals, viruses, hair, bacteria, molds (fungi), skin flakes, pollen and spores, textile fibers, cat and dog fur and dander, and volatile organic compounds, while also neutralizing odors and absorbing formaldehyde.

As they say, great things come in small packages, this petite piece of equipment is capable of cleaning 3-4 rooms in an HDB flat, or an equivalent of 80 square meters, having a flow rate of 400 cubic meters per hour, which is 44 times the average total air you breathe in and out per day! Despite this tremendous speed, it operates at whisper-quiet decibels.
