Celebrating 20 years of eSpring

Get the lowdown on why water treatment systems can play a role in every home

Did you know the world’s number-one-selling brand of home water treatments* effectively destroys – that is, eliminates or prevents reproduction of – 99.99% of waterborne, disease-causing bacteria and viruses that could exist in our everyday drinking water? eSpring™ also reduces unwanted particles, including microplastics, chlorine and heavy metals. As a result, eSpring provides better-tasting and better-smelling water directly from the tap, so the entire family can enjoy the convenience of fresh, clean water all day long. This year, we’re celebrating two whole decades of eSpring! Let’s focus on the effectiveness of this water treatment system.

Adults should drink around two litres of water every day. If we were all to drink this from plastic bottled water, this would add up to tons of unwanted plastic waste, some of which isn’t even recyclable and releases residues, which then land in the water we consume. So, what exactly does eSpring Water Treatment System remove and how does it extract or destroy so many particles that you can’t even see? Let’s break it down.

Sources of contaminants

Water that has run through pipes, farms, sewers and countless other industrial facilities can easily become heavily polluted. Pharmaceuticals, for example, can find their way into the water after being excreted by humans. Plastics are not biodegradable so instead break into microplastics – particles that are smaller than five millimetres long – which have been detected all around us, including in the food we eat, the air we breathe and, you guessed it, the water we drink. Herbicides and pesticides can enter drinking water sources as runoff from crop production in agricultural areas. And, last but not least, certain pathogenic viruses and bacteria commonly found in water can result in gastroenteritis or other unpleasant stomach issues.

Under the microscope

Other contaminants can also be found in water, but are even harder to detect and reduce. Chlorine, for example, can often be added for disinfection, but it comes with a price – a distinctly unfavourable taste. Heavy metals, such as lead and mercury, can enter the water system through industrial or agricultural processes and no one wants even low levels of exposure to such toxic elements, and especially not from their daily supply of H2O.

Two-pronged power

To combat these diverse contaminants – and even microscopic yet potentially harmful ones – water treatment needs to use sophisticated dual technology. eSpring performs a powerful, two-level approach to treating water before it reaches your tap! It first applies its advanced carbon block filter, obstructing over 160 contaminants, including 140 that have the potential to impact our wellbeing. Then, ultraviolet light technology effectively purifies, destroying more than 99.99% of waterborne, disease-causing bacteria and viruses. Complement this with eCoupled™ Wireless Power and Smart Chip technology, and you get clean, safe and great-tasting water with ease and cost-effectiveness – compared with bottled water. Families and homes have been enjoying this pure, clean water for 20 years, and you can enjoy it for many more to come.
