Water for Drinking and Cooking

The water we drink and use to cook is important for our health. By filtering it, we are improving its purity. But before filtering it, it is necessary to choose the right options. The water supply contains harmful components which we should be aware of and treat with the appropriate equipment. Discover which one suits your needs in function of the problems that affect the water from your home.

Solutions

  • Bacteria

    The water supply, mainly in poorly monitored wells and water mines, contains coliform bacteria and Escherichia coli.

  • Why should we remove them?

    Some coliform bacteria may cause gastrointestinal problems, mainly in children and elderly people.

  • Recommended equipment

    Bacterial problems must be treated according to the degree of contamination. Our technical department will offer you the best solution as a result of a prior analysis.

  • Mineral excess

    In many cases, water contains an excess of minerals. They may not be harmful, but they can alter the flavour and cause kidney stones.

  • Why should we reduce them?

    High quality mineral waters usually have a low mineral content. They are beneficial for our organism and, at the same time, improve the taste and the quality when cooking or making coffee, tea or ice cubes.

  • Recommended equipment

    Reverse osmosis.

  • Organic compounds

    In some cases, tap water contains volatile organic compounds such as hydrocarbons (heptane, octane, decane, etc.), trihalomethanes (trichloromethane, bromodichloromethane) and pesticides and insecticides (PCB, DDT, atrazine, lindane).

  • Why should we remove them?

    In many cases the use of chlorine leads to the emergence of trihalomethanes. We can also find them in old pipes, uncontrolled dumping and, mainly, in intensive farming.

  • Recommended equipment

    Reverse osmosis.

  • Metals

    Heavy metals such as lead, cadmium and mercury are usually present in some water supply lines. Because of the pressure, they remain in permanent suspension while being swept along.

  • Why should we remove them?

    They are very harmful for our health, e.g., lead attacks the nervous system, reduces concentration and weakens the immune system. Metals accumulate in our body, since they are not usually removed.

  • Recommended equipment

    Reverse osmosis.

  • Lime and bad taste

    Bad taste in drinking water may be due to a range of different factors.
    It may be due to excess salinity, dissolved chlorine, etc., as well as to a low salinity in some granite areas, such as Galicia and Portugal.

  • Why should we remove them?

    Water is not only an essential part of our diet, but it is also vital for our health. Therefore, it is crucial that it has a pleasant taste. In this way, we are promoting that children and elderly people drink the necessary daily amount. The frequent consumption of water will improve our vitality and our quality of life.

  • Recommended equipment

    Reverse osmosis.

Benefits of osmosis or filtered water

Water treated by reverse osmosis equipment improves the purity levels by reducing the quantity of dissolved solids in water, bacteria and other impurities. Its applications are numerous:

Savings

By using the equipment from Puricom, your small domestic appliances (coffee makers, steam irons, etc.) will accumulate less lime and thus have a larger service life.
