Benefits of filtered water
Water makes up 65% of an adult’s total body weight. Healthy adults need between 1½ and 3 litres of water per day. Water is essential for the body’s growth and maintenance, so drinking healthy water is vital to good health.
Filtered tap water offers great benefits:
- Improved taste:
the water that comes out of your tap may contain impurities. EVA water filters improve the odour and taste of tap water, therefore bringing out the full aroma and flavour of tea, coffee and soft drinks. Using the water filter may improve the colour and texture of food cooked with filtered water.
- Protect yourself:
drinking contaminated water (lead, chlorine, mercury, aluminium...) can leave you feeling unwell. EVA water filters effortlessly remove heavy metals and also harmful bacteria so your water stays as pure as possible.
- Prevent lime scale:
EVA water filters prevent lime scale from building up in your kettle, conserving energy and saving money.
- Help the environment:
bottled water and other filtration systems are expensive in terms of water loss, electricity, transport and plastic waste. There is absolutely no waste with the EVA filtration system.
Everyday issues with tap water:
The tap water we use every day for
drinking (making tea, coffee, cordials...) or cooking (boiled
vegetables, pasta, rice, fruits...) can carry harmful substances (lead,
chlorine, mercury, aluminium, cadmium, fluoride...) which can gradually
build up inside the body.
Even in tiny quantities, these are unhealthy as some substances such as nitrates can be very dangerous.
There are numerous examples of
pollution in European countries, such as cases where cattle or
industrial pollution accidentally disperse organic elements into the
ground. These elements, after chemical degradations and seepage, end up
in the ground water, all of which have consequences for the pollution of
Some harmful germs (salmonella, E.coli...) can under certain conditions,
pass through the common tap water filtration processes…
For this reason some consumers do not see water filtration products as luxury goods, but as compulsory items to have at home.
Importance of the pH level in water:
The pH level
of water is very important for the body’s well-being as well as for the
assimilation of nutrients and other vital vitamins and minerals.
The human body has a natural pH level of 7.4. This level must be
maintained for it to function properly. If, for whatever reason, the
level becomes too acidic or alkaline, the body automatically tries to
return to its natural level. The consumption of acidic water - that is,
water which contains an inferior level of minerals, chlorine, sulphates
or nitrates - as well as acidic food can temporarily hinder the body.
Excess acid in the body has been shown to weaken the immune system. The
consumption of a more alkaline water may help restore the body’s natural
balance. When the body tries to regulate its pH, it may delve into its
mineral reserves or store the acid in muscles or fat.
bodies or biologists agree that the main benefit of having an alkaline
pH (above 7) is to prevent the destruction of enzymes contained in
saliva, which would be eliminated by acidic water (with a pH below 7).
Generally, you will find that highly purified waters (even
re-mineralised) will have a pH below 7. Water from subterranean springs
that hasn’t been chemically treated or modified should have a pH between
7.2 and 7.8 – the ideal range for good health.
The EVA Advanced Water Filtration System helps regain this purity by making tap water alkaline.

To ensure a good quality, effective water filtration process there are some essential elements to check:
The ceramic filter is very important since this is the first step of the water filtration process. The optimum pore size is essential. The smaller the pores (in tenths of microns), the more effective they are at filtering harmful germs.
Minerals are important for good quality spring water. The more diverse they are, the more effective they will be in removing impurities e.g heavy metals and adding back the beneficial nutrients your body needs.
Check if the minerals are certified, which is proof of good quality. If they are certified, you will be able to trace where they originate from.
Speed of filtration: the more time it takes, the better and purer the water will be...
