Water Filters are good for Health ?

posted by Topic for Discussion
Dear Readers,
i would like to share an valuable dission on water filtes used in kuwait.2 major Brands
Coolpex and Kent.
Last week i went for shopping in LULU. of the kent guy ask me which filter you are using i tell past 6 years i am using coolpex. then suddenly he ask me why u r drinking acid water one guy tested the water in Kiser and found pH is High. i ask him do u have any any proof fot that he told no.not only to me he ask this questions maybe many.

after some week i just collect my filer water and tap water i tested in a LAB. Remember am using Coolpex filter.
the Result given from the lab was on coolpex filter ph = 4.5 and TDS =7 calcium =0;all other minerals are near to 0 range.
also result for water given buy kuwait ministry pH= 6.8 and TDS= 103.

so from here we need to start our discusion. which water we need to drink. Tap water or Filter water?many indians are working in the different labs and water treatment plants in kuwait. i am expecting a good answer from them.

i am not expecting Coolpex and kent chamchas opinion.

May they will show many drama to Us.

as my conclusion i found that coolpex water if we drink . our body not getting any minerals from water.

then i call to coolpex company and discuss with topic. one guy from the company told me sir if u drink the water with more than ph =4.5 and TDS =more than 7 it will affect to our body.i tell him when i check on internet u r telling just opposite.then he told me sir if you want i will send an technician to adjust the TDS on filter.

today evening may many of them will got call from the company to change the filter u just ask the same question. they will reply you same.

go to bakala and collect a bottle water (ABC/AQUAFINA/ROTANA etc)and check the pH and TDS of drinking water. you can find out that who is cheating US. many of them are not aware of this water. if u drink continously it will affect our body .

this discussion is not for insulting any person or any company if u hurt i am say sorry.this discussion just for knowledge and to live like a energetic human being.

Thank you

more PH value means more alkaline water, which is good for body.
Best Drinking Water Qualities

If your priority is health and wellness, your best drinking water will have at least the first three of the following qualities—and optimally, all six:

Contaminant free. The water is filtered of unhealthy toxins, including synthetic chemicals, toxic metals, bacteria and viruses, radioactive substances, and other treatment additives such as chlorine and fluoride
Mineral rich. The natural occurring minerals in the source water are not removed through purification processes, such as reverse osmosis and distillation.
Alkaline pH. The drinking water has an alkaline pH between 7.0 and 9.5, which means that the water contains a healthy level of alkaline minerals such as calcium and magnesium.
Micro-clustered. Water that is electrolyzed or "reduced" will have smaller groupings of water molecules. Drinking reduced water can improve cellular hydration and cell-water turnover (i.e., nutrients into the cells and toxins out)
Anti-oxidant. Water that is ionized has a negative oxidation reduction potential (-ORP) and thus acts to neutralize free radicals in the body and slows the oxidation (i.e., aging) process in the body.
Good taste. If it doesn't taste good, you'll simply won't drink enough water to stay hydrated enough to optimize the health

dear all ,
1st all of us need to understand this PH scale

it is from 0 to 14.. the mean is at 7.

so If
PH 7.1 is slightly Alkaline (or Basic) water
PH 6.9 is slightly Acidic water.

now all those who are saying FILTER WATER IS GOOD Can check in according to this scale.

2nd point.
the Filtration process.

Essentially these so call filters
Filters out all IMPURITIES. AND these impurities are having
a. harmful substances
b. harmless substances And most important
c. Essential Minerals required for the body.

So if u are drinking this filter water .. u are drinking ACIDIC WATER AND NO MINERALS. (which is very dangerous PURE H2O)

RO cleans water, same time romoves all minerals required to our body.

hi topic,
how can we test this in the lab? which lab did you test this? what are the charges? kindly inform, so I can test a sample from my filter as well. if the ministry water supply is good enough, then I will just use a good candle filter.

PH 7.1 is slightly Alkaline (or Basic) water and PH 14 is highest Alkaline.
PH 6.9 is slightly Acidic water. and PH 0 is highest acidic .

The usual range of pH values encountered is between 0 and
14, with 0 being the value for concentrated hydrochloric
acid (1 M HCl), 7 the value for pure water (neutral pH),
and 14 being the value for concentrated sodium hydroxide (1
M NaOH). It is possible to get a pH of -1 with 10 M HCl,
but that is about a practical limit of acidity. At the
other extreme, a 10 M solution of NaOH would have a pH of

RO water is seriously dangerous to our health. Please read the article from World Health Organization.

Just use British Doufeld water filter.....the water is of right pH value and pure....moreover it s ceramic filter which can last upto a year and can be reused if cleaned. if giving to infants boil the water from British Doufeld filter. Only 14 KWD and easily availab=ble in LuLu, Jamiya etc

Based on today's discussion, am discontinuing using my coolpex water filter and going for Aquafina water bottles. I know it would cost me little more but I don't want to play with me and my family's health for few KDs.

The topic posted here is correct. all the minerals and calcium level is zero in these waters ... and other bottle waters having higher amount of minerals - for daily use these bottled waters also very danger(calcium stones etc problems will come). myself tested these waters as i am working in a certified lab.

Hi Jem,

Please advise as which water is the suitable for drinking, we are all highly confused!!
I have been using coolpex water for more than 5 years and now recently after reading this discussion, stopped using and started bottled water.
Then my friend told, bottled water is also not safe as sometimes due to improper storage under high heat conditions, chemicals can leach from plastic and gets dissolved in water thereby making in dangerous for consumption. In that case, only glass bottled water is acceptable which I checked and found to be very costly, almost 5-8 fold than plastic bottled water.
Really boss, if you are in this field, kindly advise for the benefit of IIK community as well.
Best regards
