Pacific Water Technology has launched a range of alkaline water purifiers and RO water filters into the Australian market. Also known as alkalisers, these alkaline water filters remove unwanted contaminants from your water and replace with a healthy balance of minerals . These systems all ensure a healthy balance of minerals are added to the purified water whilst also providing a higher pH and increased buffering capacity. High pH alone is not sufficient to deliver healthy alkaline water- for that you need minerals that provide the buffering capacity and neutralise acids- More- See Dr Sirkus. There is no doubt that water alone will not provide the amount of minerals required for good health- but can play a vital role. Some 21 mineral elements are known or suspected to be essential for humans. At least fourteen mineral elements are established as being essential for good health; these elements in combined form affect bone and membrane structure (Ca, P, Mg, F), water and electrolyte balance (Na, K, Cl), metabolic catalysis (Zn, Cu, Se, Mg, Mn, Mo), oxygen binding (Fe), and hormone functions (I, Cr).

Health consequences of micronutrient deficiencies include increased morbidity, mortality due to reduced immune defense systems and impaired physical and mental development. Deficiencies of several mineral elements, particularly iron and iodine, are the basis of health problems in many parts of the world. Some minerals and their respective importance for health are listed below:
• Calcium – important in bone health and possibly cardiovascular health
• Magnesium – important in bone and cardiovascular health – more: Magnesium online resource center
• Fluoride – effective in preventing dental caries
• Sodium – an important extracellular electrolyte, lost under conditions of excess sweat
• Copper – important in antioxidant function, iron utilisation and cardiovascular health
• Selenium – important in general antioxidant function and in the immune system
• Potassium is important for a variety of biochemical effects but it is usually not found in natural drinking waters at significant levels.
Listed below are some of Pacific Water’s range of alkaline water filters:
The KCW-006 alkaline ultrafiltration system comprises of 4 Stages of filtration including ultrafiltration and anti-oxidant water purifier providing healthy anti-oxidant water with a high mineral content. The activated carbon stage includes a Calgon catalytic carbon stage- one of few activated carbons available in the market that effectively remove chloramines. Chloramines are commonly used for secondary water disinfection.
- Low negative ORP (ORP:-200mv~ -500mv), giving it strong and measurable antioxidant potential, which has significant health benefits.
- Alkaline water(PH: 8.5~9.8), improves your systemic acid/alkaline balance, enhances your immune system.
- Includes Tourmaline:Tourmaline is well known for its ability to aid in the detoxification process, and for balancing metabolic functions.When placed in water, slight pressure contributes to a piezoelectric effect that supports water’s crystalline structure.
- Includes MAI-FAN CERAMIC STONE- This rare natural mineral stone, combines with water to generate indispensable minerals for the body, such as Calcium, Iron, Silicon, Magnesium and Aluminium, at the same time, revitalising the water, emitting FIR (far-infrared rays) to produce `living water’.
6 Stage RO Water Filter with Alkaline Filter
The Alkaline filter changes the acidic RO water into a perfect alkaline ionised water. Balanced pH value of 8.0 ~9.5. The filter also includes NSF certified quick change cartridges and has a booster pump to optimise the performance of the alkaline water filter.
Water Ioniser with Nanofiltration
A membrane filtration system ( Nanofiltration) , that provides purified water to a water ioniser capable of producing four levels of alkaline water and two levels of acidic water. The Nanofiltration allows monovalent ions to pass through and ensure satisfactory conductivity for ionising the water. Alkaline ionised Water is a powerful Antioxidant providing the body with tremendous amounts of hydrogen that gives you lots of Energy. Water Ionisers is one of the greatest preventative health advances and technological marvels of the 21st century. It is very Alkaline and helps neutralise and flush acid waste from the body. It is a superior Hydrator and Detoxifier because Ionised Water molecule clusters have been “reduced” in size (from 10 to 5) and therefore is “lighter”. Alkaline Ionised Water’s smaller size allows it to hydrate your body more effectively, flushing out toxins as it easily passes through your body’s tissue.
Pacific Water Technology has opened a new warehouse and showroom where customers can view a number of reverse osmosis water filters that have been installed for the purpose of demonstration. We are located in Seventeen Mile Rocks. More:
