Increasing water quality studies have challenged the notion of tank water superiority. Sure it is chlorine and fluoride free and generally tastes far better than town water, but in most cases tank water contains significant quantities of micro organisms, which can be very detrimental to your health.
The chances of fatal diseases from tank water are very low, but ‘minor’ illnesses, caused mainly by E-coli and campylobacter bacteria, are common. Ingestion of these faecal bacteria can lead to an upset tummy or diarrhoea. Most people attribute their symptoms to “bad food or the bot”, and accept the discomfort- but it needn’t be so.
Some tank water also carries Giardia and Cryptosporidium, (usually derived from the gut of mammals or birds): both these water parasites have the potential to make us quite ill.
Organic matter on the tank bottom provides the perfect environment for these microbes to multiply, and we typically pump our household water from this zone! This debris is also forced through any water filters, clogging them quicker- pump life can also be reduced.
Water at the top of your tank carries lower numbers of these bugs, and is the freshest, most highly oxygenated, best tasting tank water.
The WaterBoy, a floating water intake, designed specifically for water tanks, taps this better quality surface water, and delivers it (by your existing water pump) to the household.
The WaterBoy is not a water filter, but by automatically adjusting to the changing water level in your tank, provides the cleanest water from the tank 24/7, thereby greatly extending the life of all tank water filters!
Manufactured from the best quality non toxic, food grade components, (stainless steel cage, collar bracket and chain, polyethylene flotation buoy, and flexible outflow pipe), the WaterBoy carries a 10 year guarantee.
Fitted to the outlet pipe (inside the tank),the WaterBoy ensures your pump only draws tank water from the inlet floating just below the water surface, where the best tasting water is located.
