There are matters outside of ourselves we cannot control, but we can control what enters our body.
Water is essential to life and a supply of clean-safe drinking water is required for the sustenance of life.
Concern regarding safe-clean drinking water commenced at the turn of the 20th century, when science coupled with technology unravelled the implications associated with contaminated drinking water.
In developing countries, it is estimated that most diseases (over 80%) is caused by contaminated drinking water and consequently, a considerable amount of work potential (over 30%) is compromised because of this.
As a result of the negative consequences of contaminated drinking water, countries are continuously updating guidelines and regulations with the aim to provide drinking water which can reduce water borne diseases and foster healthy living.
In South Africa, the quality of the domestic water supply that is considered safe for human consumption is assured by monitoring for compliance with the South African National Standards (SANS 241:2015).
Oasis Water is tested for compliance by independent laboratories in accordance with SANS and are compliant on four key levels:
Microbial water quality is the state of the water with respect to the presence of micro-organisms. Microbial water quality is usually indicated by reporting the count (number) of indicator organisms present in each volume of water.
Chemical water quality refers to the nature and concentration of Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) such as salts, metals and organic chemicals. All determinants with a possible threat to health are listed.
Municipal drinking water in South Africa consistently tests at a TDS count of 150 or higher. There are exceptions where the count is lower. Oasis Water guarantees a TDS count of less than 20 under normal operating conditions.
Acute Health microbiological determinants are the organisms in drinking-water which could pose a risk to health if such water is consumed, e.g., E. coli which cause diarrhoea, and need urgent care.
Aesthetic parameters are those detectable by the senses, namely turbidity, colour, taste, and odour, the most known chemicals associated with taste are salts such as sodium/chloride.
Oasis Water guarantees water that is safe with a great clean taste and flavour that is aesthetically pleasing to the senses.
And, because of its price, Oasis Water is genuinely affordable, making it ideal for households looking for a safe drinking and cooking water solution.
