Acquasafe Water Filtration & Purification
Benefits of Microlene’s Acquasafe Tankwater Treatment
Rainwater starts out clean, bacteria and virus free, but as soon as it hits a collecting surface like a roof top, dangerous bacteria can enter the water. Animal and bird droppings, dust, dirt and decaying vegetable matter like leaves can contaminate tank water. Each of these sources of contamination can lead to dangerous bacteria entering your water supply, like E.Coli and treptococci.
Acquasafe uses patented technology to kill the bacteria and viruses that are harmful to people and animals and protects your tank from recontamination for up to two months. Acquasafe is completely non-toxic and safe to use around your family. Unlike chlorine which has carcinogenic by products, Acquasafe breaks down into oxygen and water. The main ingredient of Acquasafe is hydrogen peroxide and is listed in the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines for the purpose of treating drinking water. Microlene Acquasafe uses a stabilising agent to ensure longevity of the formula.
Acquasafe is Effective
• Over 170 extensive tests conducted worldwide have proven Acquasafe kills over 60 different germs, bacteria, viruses, amoeba, biofilms and other pathogens
• Acquasafe oxidizes all germs immediately and then leaves a residual to ensure the water stays clean
• For added protection against protozoan cysts like giardia and cryptosporidium it is recommended to use one micron depth filtration in conjunction with Acquasafe for general disinfection
Longer Lasting, Better Than Chlorine
• Protects water for up to two months under normal conditions, which means clean water for longer
• Chlorine based disinfectants will only disinfect your water for at most a couple of days
• Chlorine leaves no residual and water is therefore susceptible to recontamination
• Chlorine leaves an offensive taste and smell
• Acquasafe reduces the frequency of dosing and monitoring with test strips will ensure water remains safe
• Long lasting action ensures water is disinfected to the point of use
• One litre of Acquasafe can protect 15,000L of water from contamination for up to two months
• A single drop of Acquasafe can sanitise almost 4½ glasses of water!
• Therefore the cost of protecting your water with Acquasafe is very low
