Water checked every day?
Water coming from our aqueducts is subjected to daily checks and the law imposes very strict limits on the presence of harmful substances such as heavy metals and minerals.
On the other hand, analyses on mineral water sources are performed on a multi-year frequency with much higher limits regarding some substances. Ne deriva che l’acqua in bottiglia che beviamo oggi potrebbe essere stata controllata anche 5 anni fa. Inoltre, i parametri legati ad alcune sostanze sono più elevati e quindi queste potrebbero essere presenti in maggiori quantità.
*DLgs. 105 art. 11 comma 6
Fresh and pure?
85% of the water that comes out of our taps is fresh because it flows directly from the source into our homes.
The bottles of water are stored for month, exposed to the sun, kept in trucks for hours. A study by Florida University’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences revealed that these processes promote the presence in bottled water of substances such as Bisphenol a (bpa) and Antimony, which are very dangerous to our health. Bottled water also contains microplastics that can represent an additional danger to our body.
Less effort, more well-being!
Tap water is always available at home and can therefore be consumed at any time.
The purchase, transport, storage and disposal of water bottles are heavy and costly, both in terms of physical efforts and time.
But how much does it cost?
Tap water is up to 1000 times cheaper than bottled water! A family of four people who drink mains water spends less than 5 euros per year.
A family of four people who use bottled mineral water spends much more, even 1250 euros a year.
What about the environment?
Drinking tap water is a choice that is not only healthy for us but also for the environmen. A drastic reduction in plastic containers and less pollution from transport and storage allow us to reduce our negative impact on the environment.
The consumption of bottled water has a strong environmental impact due to the containers, usually in plastic, and their transport, which is still mostly carried out by road. To give you an idea, 8 million tons of plastic are disseminated each year, which has created islands larger than Spain!
So tap water is better!
- It’s economic
- Has no expiry date
- Is not stored
- Does not pollute
- Is not carried
- Is checked every day
In order to ensure microbiological safety, the water in the aqueduct is treated with chlorine which, at certain times, can have even high concentrations. Chlorine, in addition to having an unpleasant taste, represents a health hazard. In addition, tap water passes through pipes that are often old and full of leaks from which contaminants dangerous to our well-being can enter.
Akwa improves what is already good
With Akwa® purified and microfiltered water dispensers you can have pure water without any unpleasant taste directly at home.
The Akwa® microfiltration system eliminates any trace of chlorine and intercepts a large amount of harmful substances that can contaminate the water along the pipes.
The result is a water rich in all its beneficial components, pure and fresh.
