History Of Human Drinking Water

From prehistoric civilization to the primitive era and contemporary society, water always has a grand role in the bigger picture. There is no development nor survival without water – we need it for irrigation, production, and, most importantly, drinking.

America Recycles Day: How Best To Recycle Your Water Filter

Caring for the environment should be a collective responsibility. With American Recycles Day – November 15, 2021 – approaching, it is a good time to discuss viable ways to reduce environmental waste by buying eco-friendly products. Every household using a water filter to produce clean drinking water must replace these filter cartridges after some time. The frequency of the change depends on the model, water quality, and water usage. While home water filtration systems harm the environment less than plastic bottles, the used cartridges still constitute part of the landfill. But it is not all doom; recycling can help to mitigate this...

Production and Treatment of Waste Water in Reverse Osmosis Systems

The increasing demand for reverse osmosis water systems is not surprising, considering how advanced this water filtration technology is. Here is a blog that we wrote before that explains how powerful the reverse osmosis is: How Does a Reverse Osmosis Filter System Work? RO system efficiently removes contaminants, providing high-water, clean, and healthy water for drinking and cooking. However, it also produces wastewater – a major concern for users. Traditional reverse osmosis systems produce up to four cups of wastewater for every cup of filtered water. How is this possible?

Safe Drinking Water In 2021: Progress Made But So Much Further To Go

The United Nations Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) suggests that “Access to clean water is a fundamental human right and a prerequisite for the realization of many other human rights.” When the United Nations (UN) member countries established a plan for sustainable development in 2015, known as Transforming Our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, clean water was high on the agenda. The Transforming Our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development plan consists of several goals known as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). SDG 6.1 of the plan involves “Achieving universal access to water sources that are improved, with a round trip for water...

Is the "Wastewater" Produced by the RO System Really Wasteful?

The water filtered by RO system is fresher and healthier than bottled water, but there's a drawback to using RO: excessive wastewater. Let us explore how RO wastewater can be reused here in Waterdrop. Reverse osmosis water purifiers provide us with clean, tasty, and safe water. They also safeguard us from waterborne diseases that are a potential threat to our lives. Compared with bottled water, the water filtered by RO system is fresher, healthier and safer. It can effectively remove calcium, magnesium, bacteria, organic matter, inorganic matter, heavy metals, radioactive substances, and viruses in your tap water. The water filtered by RO...

Why You Need to Stop Drinking Bottled Water?

What is the right alternative to bottled water? Waterdrop is here to offer the information you need. Did you know that humans buy about 1,000,000 plastic bottles per minute? Another shocking statistic is that 91% of all plastic is not recycled. Many of those plastic bottles go straight to landfills—or even worse, to the ocean. We need urgent action to stop this plastic pollution epidemic. Besides the plastic pollution aspect, health concerns over bottled water have been raised up as experts found toxic chemicals in popular bottled water brands.
