Which Water Filter Should We Use?

Water Quality

Which Water Filter Should We Use?
Having learned about water and the water industry for nearly a decade, we are very often asked: what kind of water filter should I get in order to ensure drinking clean, healthy water? Our answer is always: it's complicated! A wide range of commercial filters and membranes are available. Many of them are good but none of them provide a perfect answer to everyone’s needs. We hope to shed light on this vital issue in this blog post. Water Is Life - Water Is the Universal Solvent We know that all life as we know it depends on water. If not for this crucial ingredient, the entire planet would just be dust floating in a dust bowl, like Mars or our closest neighbor, the Moon. Even so, water requires certain characteristics to sustain life. Did you know? Pure liquid water, that is H2O only, is actually rare to find on Earth. Sure, pure water molecules exist as vapor in the air and clouds, but once these accumulate to droplets, everything changes. Pure water is ”hungry”, also described as the “universal solvent” - it readily absorbs and dissolves more substances than any other liquid. This is essential to life because many of those dissolved substances nourish and enable healthy living. So, on one hand, those could be dissolved minerals in water, essential for the wellbeing of every cell in our body but they could also be heavy metals that are harmful to our health even at very low doses. Other contaminants include manufactured chemicals, natural-born elements such as antimony and arsenic, and more. Water can also harbor biological contaminants such as bacteria, viruses, and protozoa. Do You Know What’s in Your Tap Water? One of the main disadvantages of centralized water distribution systems is the lack of information regarding their quality. Sure, your municipal water board takes pride in treating and delivering healthy water to your tap, and you may even receive quarterly reports about its quality. The problem is always what happens to the water on its way to your tap and what your water board is not testing for. It’s important to understand that many of our modern-day water quality crises are due to these issues. The Flint Water Crisis, for example, was brought on when a municipal water provider changed its water source to a new one. Both sources were sound and healthy but because of changes in chemical-physical attributes of the new water, lead from aging pipes leached into the drinking supply and poisoned an estimated 100,000 people. Physical Filtration These are the simplest forms of filters. These types of filters can usually reduce the concentration of contaminants but do not remove them completely. Here you can also find ceramic microporous gravity filters, mesh filters, disc filters, and more. Some are stand-alone while other products use physical filtration as the first step of a multi-step process. Physical filtration removes suspended materials floating in the water. Usual filtration sizes can be 5-15 µm (a µm is one-millionth of a meter or 0.000001m) for the polypropylene type candle filters down to 0.01µm for ultrafiltration membranes. Physical filtration acts as a barrier for suspended materials in the water. If the particle size is larger than the rated filtration size, they will usually be filtered and removed from drinking water. Nothing smaller than the filtration size or dissolved in the water will be filtered. So organic contaminants, heavy metals, bacteria (bacteria are around 1µm) and viruses that were in your tap water will still be there. We recommend this step as an important pre-filtration step before other filters such as activated charcoal and reverse osmosis. Activated Charcoal Filters A little known fact is the Egyptians discovered that storing water in charcoal, made it stay fresher and taste better, carbon has been a standard feature in water treatment and its centuries of popularity are testament to its effectiveness. Activated charcoal filters come in different shapes and sizes. There are some well-known offers on the markets in different configurations. Most well-known are the pitcher filters but carbon filters can also be found in under-the-sink, gravity-fed, and water bar systems. Activated charcoal is a great solution for removing chlorine and organic compounds from drinking water. Due to its humongous surface area (one pound of activated carbon contains a surface area of approximately 100 acres!) and the ability for chemical adsorption, chlorine is reduced and volatile organics which can include pesticide residues and others are adsorbed to the filter. Through this technology, bad tastes and odors, coming from chlorine and organic material are also neutralized. Many times activated charcoal is the second step of a multi-step treatment process which may also include physical filtration through polypropylene candle filters and ceramic microfiltration. Point of Use (PoU) reverse osmosis systems also use activated charcoal pre-filtration steps to neutralize chlorine as reverse osmosis membranes are easily damaged by chlorine. Activated charcoal filters by themselves are usually not effective at removing minerals and dissolved inorganic compounds. This is both good and bad. The good part is that nutritious minerals from your tap water pass through the filter but contaminants such as heavy metals (Lead, Mercury, Arsenic, and more) are left in the water. Because of this, many champions selling activated charcoal also include specialized resins for removing inorganics. These are usually legacy IP and should be evaluated separately. Another serious drawback of activated charcoal as a stand-alone filter comes from the reaction between adsorbed organic matter and activated chlorine. When these two react, they produce Trihalomethanes (THMs) such as chloroform and other disinfection byproducts known to be carcinogenic. The best way to minimize exposure to these bad boys is to change your activated carbon filter at vendor-recommended intervals and not keep an activated charcoal filter on your system for months on end. If your drinking water source is a lake or river, the risk of THM production is much higher due to the higher concentration of organic matter present. ​Distilled Water Distilled water is a type of purified water that has gone through the distillation process and removes contaminants as well as natural minerals, however, a little-known fact is that it is best used in small appliances to avoid mineral buildup. Distilled water has a laboratory, industrial, medicinal and perfumery, and food processing uses. It can however be used as the most preferable type of water in these industries. Using it as drinking water falls into the last category and should not be seen as an alternative to other types of drinking water due to the lack of essential minerals. Fun fact is that at most, 8 glasses of hard distilled water only fulfills 15% of the organic minerals calcium and magnesium daily, which are the minerals that comprise most of our daily allowance. Reverse Osmosis These types of systems are becoming more popular as customers are becoming aware of the quality of water they drink. Reverse Osmosis systems usually include 3-6 water treatment steps, all residing under your sink. Reverse osmosis systems begin with a physical filtration step and carbon block filtration to remove both suspended matter, chlorine, and dissolved organic matter. The water then undergoes a Reverse Osmosis step which uses water pressure to “push” only (almost) H2O through a semipermeable membrane. The Reverse Osmosis Membrane process removes over 98% of dissolved matter from the water, making the water essentially distilled or very close to pure H2O. After the membrane process, water is sometimes post-treated to improve taste and add minerals, is stored in a plastic-lined tank beneath the sink, and dispensed via a tap or dispenser, which resides above the sink. Water produced by Reverse Osmosis is almost distilled meaning that all toxins AND beneficial compounds have been removed. Drinking these depleted waters is not recommended by the World Health Organization because nutritious elements such as Calcium and Magnesium along with trace elements have been removed from the water. Distilled water is also “hungry” wanting to dissolve anything it comes by. This can be plastic piping, heavy metals from bad fittings, and other contaminants. Leaving distilled water in the under sink tank is also an issue because the water stagnates in a plastic-lined tank. Many reverse osmosis systems integrate another activated charcoal filter to remove bad taste usually originating from storing almost distilled water in a plastic tank.

Recap Which type of water filter you choose for your home is up to your personal values, lifestyle and understanding. There are some players out there today that are trying to solve the problem of both the lack of knowledge as to the quality of tap water at your home, while other companies are working to produce specialized filters and water treatment systems to improve on current standards. This way or another, knowing what’s in your tap water would be the ultimate first step in understanding and minding it.
Aeration - On a Chemical Level

Structured Water

Aeration - On a Chemical Level
In order to explore the science behind Mayu Water, we will refer to two key premises. Biomimicry is the concept that the earth's natural mechanisms provide the most efficient and elegant methods for life to thrive. In other words, emulating nature's intelligence will provide optimal results. The Human Angle - Body and Soul Life cannot exist without water, that is a universal and basic law of nature. The importance of hydration cannot be overstated. Aeration - On a Chemical Level Atmospheric Oxygen - In; CO2 - Out. What Is Aeration? Aeration is the process of bringing water and air into close contact. Aeration influences the water’s physical and chemical characteristics as well as taste, odor, texture, and overall quality. A flowing motion rejuvenates the water, allows it to absorb atmospheric oxygen, and gives the water its native living structure. How Does It Work? The swirling motion introduces atmospheric air into the water, allowing fresh oxygen to dissolve within it. The interface of water and air, expanded by the vortex motion, allows for increased gas exchange and air circulation, causing volatile compounds to release from the water and fresh oxygen to diffuse in. Fresh Oxygen Is Vital to the Quality of Water The benefits of aeration have been verified by the World Health Organization and other prominent institutions. The swirling motion – a transfer between gas and water takes place as we affect the surface and bring in oxygen. Simultaneously, undesirable compounds are released and evaporate. CO2 embedded in the water, for example, evaporates — and through this process, pH levels in the water are elevated. How Exactly Does This Happen? the swirling motion causes the aqueous CO2 (carbon dioxide) to become gas CO2 and leaves the water: CO2 (aq)->CO2 (gas).Carbonic acid (H2CO3) in the water then creates CO2 according to this reaction: H2CO3 ->CO2 + H2O.Bicarbonate (HCO3–) in the water creates carbonic acid (H2CO3) according to this: HCO3– + H+->H2CO3. The net result: H+ (an acid) is consumed, and pH levels go up. The swirling aeration process helps evaporate and remove dissolved toxic gases and volatile organic compounds (VOC) such as radon, carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulfide, nitrogen trichloride, trihalomethanes, trichloroethylene, dichloroethylene, chlorine, ammonia, methane, volatile organics (MTBE, PCE, TCE, toluene, and other industrial solvents). These substances are all considered hazardous materials and potentially dangerous when consumed in excess. It’s important to emphasize that the Mayu Swirl does NOT filter or purify drinking water. We highly recommend using a good filter to make sure you start with pure H2O. Taste - Aerated Water Tastes and Feels Better The chemical and natural processes described above bring the water to its optimized neutral state — that is, pH balanced, rejuvenated, and revitalized. In a double-blind taste test, 87% of subjects in our experiment perceived a clear, unmistakably improved, and almost sweet taste when compared to non-aerated water (interestingly, child samplers were particularly perceptive to the differences in water quality). Other studies have confirmed that swirled water is indeed sweeter and more delicious. Aeration balances the water’s pH level, quantifiably improving its taste, odor, and overall quality.

The Benefits and Importance of Structured Water

Structured Water

The Benefits and Importance of Structured Water
Structured water is sometimes known as hexagonal water and refers to water molecules that form a hexagonal cluster. Structured water shares similarities with pure water that is uncontaminated by human processes. Pure water comes from natural and unpolluted sources like mountain springs and glacier melts, and it is believed that water can be altered to structure it, where it returns to its natural spring water frequency state. Read on to learn about the benefits and importance of this type of water. What Makes Structured Water Unique? The water that flows out of our taps undergoes treatment that destroys its natural structure—both vibrationally and chemically. The chemical formula for normal water is H2O, which means each water molecule contains two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. The chemical formula for structured water is H3O2 which means three atoms of hydrogen combined with two oxygen atoms. It is often referred to as the fourth phase of water or living water. H3O2 is in a state that is present between liquid and solid and is considered to be thicker than normal water. Structured water has properties of viscosity, alkalinity, and denseness and can release and store energy. It is believed that the molecules of structured water have a more significant level of electrical charges that are vital for cell functioning. For more info, read our blog on how to make structured water. Why Structured Water Is So Important Water is essential because it keeps us hydrated, carries minerals and energy to our cells, and keeps up the basic functioning of our body, all while removing toxins from our system. For the most part, our bodies are made of water—around 60%, to be exact. The water we are brought into this world with is structured just like the water in plants, fruits, and vegetables. However, the water we consume from bottles or taps has likely lost its structure and may even be contaminated. Here are a few reasons why structured water is important: Optimal hydration The body has aquaporin channels that absorb water molecules. The molecules of unstructured water are all clumped together, inhibiting complete absorption. However, structured water allows the cells to be supported and hydrated freely because the molecules are appropriately adjusted for maximum absorption. Structured water results in the body using less energy to hydrate itself.Energy Energy is essential to staying alive, and our body requires energy to function properly. Structured water gives amazing, clean, biophotonic life-force energy back to the body. This isn’t like the energy from caffeine that leads to a crash—it is long-lasting, sustainable, and balanced.Softer water Structured water has a lower surface pressure than most unstructured water, making it softer, easier to drink, and easier to digest.Balances metabolism and stress response Structured water helps balance the cellular stress response, improving resilience and increasing organ activity.Increased detoxification Drinking ample water throughout the day helps dissipate harmful chemicals and toxins from the body. Structured water enhances this process and removes frequencies that could cause further disease. Structured water works as a preventative health care remedy and supports the body by keeping it balanced and in a healthy harmonic state.Cell recovery When we consume structured water molecules, they save energy on a cellular level. As a result, the cells in the body don’t need to process this energy because it is readily available in its resonant hexagonal structure. This saves the body energy and helps the cells recover faster. Benefits of Structured Water for You and Your Family Structured water has many other additional benefits for you and your family, including the following: Fresh and invigorating tasteHelps restore the skin and relieves dryness and itchingDetoxifies the bodyBoosts immune system function and longevityBetter absorption of minerals, vitamins, and nutrientsPromotes proper hydration, which reduces fatigueImproves weight balancing and health programsImproves the cartilage and discs in the bodyRenewing effects for cleaner, healthier hair when used in baths and showers Structured water also offers all the same benefits for your pets. Additionally, this amazing water can also be used for more than just human or animal consumption, such as the following: When used in spas, it lessens the chlorine requirements for pools and jacuzzisHelps gardens, lawns, and house plants bloom and thriveImproves the development of crops with expanded biomassLowers the freezing point so crops and plants can be sustained at lower temperaturesHealthier fish and livestockLowers the water surface tension for better penetration Structured water is beneficial for our overall wellbeing. This water contains minerals that are more appropriate for human health, and the hexagonal structure makes it easier for our bodies to absorb optimum levels to stay hydrated. It provides our bodies with the energy needed to live a quality life in a safe and fresh-tasting way.
Understanding the Minerals in Tap Water—Are They Healthy?

Understanding the Minerals in Tap Water—Are They Healthy?
Many years ago, people began questioning the quality of public tap water. Since then, there has been a growing interest in the health and safety of our water. Rightly so, seeing as though it is an essential fluid. Over the years, people have begun giving up tap water for bottled water due to these concerns. However, water regulation and treatment technologies have drastically improved during this period, and the quality of tap water is better today than it used to be. Does Tap Water Contain Minerals? The water that flows out your tap comes from either surface or underground water sources. In most countries, tap water needs to meet strict standards which regulate and limit the number of contaminants present in the water supplied to residential homes. Some countries have stricter regulations and procedures to verify that these requirements are being met, while others have unsafe drinking water. Tap water generally contains naturally occurring and added minerals to support our health, and some tap water is considered “hard water” because it has higher mineral contents. Are Minerals in Your Tap Water Healthy? Tap water contains several minerals that are naturally dissolved into the water at its source. These minerals are healthy and aid in overall well-being. Minerals are essential for the basic functioning of the human body and help regulate fluids, control bone growth, keep up metabolism, normalize muscle and nerve functions, and grow connective tissue. While water contains essential minerals, our main source of minerals comes from our diet. So, while the minerals in water play a role in our health, they are not absolutely necessary. Our main reason for drinking water is to stay hydrated and help our bodies process the minerals and vitamins we get from our food. The Mineral Content of Tap Water Provided the water is safe and clean for drinking, it will contain trace amounts of minerals and other compounds like chlorine, chloramine, and contaminants that are not deemed dangerous for human health. One of the minerals added to tap water is fluoride, which helps strengthen your teeth and prevent tooth decay by up to 25%, according to the CDC. The other minerals in tap water include copper, magnesium, calcium, and sodium. The Nutrient Data Laboratory carried out a study on the mineral content of tap water and found that only four minerals (besides fluoride) contribute to our daily dietary intake. They concluded that drinking a quart of tap water provides about 1% of the daily required copper, calcium, magnesium, and sodium intake. Calcium Essential for healthy teeth and strong bones and plays a vital role in cell growth, the production of hormones, and blood clotting.Magnesium This mineral is also needed for strong bones, as well as energy metabolism, and the structure and functioning of muscles.Sodium Sodium is essential for balancing the fluids in the body and regulating blood pressure.Copper This mineral is crucial for forming bone and connective tissue, the functioning of the immune system, and blood clotting. There are a few other minerals found in trace amounts, including potassium, phosphorus, iron, selenium, zinc, and chromium. However, you would need to drink copious amounts of water for these to contribute to your daily mineral intake. Removing Minerals From Your Tap Water Sometimes, people may want to remove minerals from their water because they may form deposits that can restrict water flow or corrode pipes, leading to rust-polluted drinking water. Another common reason for wanting to filter tap water is to eliminate any contaminants and bacteria present, which will automatically filter out the minerals in the water. Minerals can be removed with the following methods: Water softeners Water softeners remove the minerals that make the water “hard” in the first place with an ion exchange process that replaces magnesium and calcium ions with potassium or sodium ions.Reverse osmosis Reverse osmosis removes minerals that have larger molecules than water by pushing water under pressure through a specialized, semi-permeable membrane. This membrane filters out contaminants, toxins, and minerals. However, removing contaminants this way may sometimes leave a fishy smell. Can You Remove Minerals in Your Water by Boiling It? The general answer is no. Boiling water can help to kill any harmful bacteria in tap water, but even if the water is boiled to over 212 degrees Fahrenheit, it won’t destroy or remove any of the minerals. The Minerals in Tap Water Tap water is generally considered safe to drink, but many people prefer to filter their water to remove contaminants and bacteria. Tap water contains small amounts of minerals that can aid your overall health, but they are also not completely necessary because most of our mineral intake comes from the food we eat. That being said, if you'd like to gain the benefits of mineral water, read our guide to making mineral water at home.
Everything There Is to Know About Structured Water

Structured Water

Everything There Is to Know About Structured Water
Water is at the top of the list when it comes to human survival—the life-giving substance that we need every single day. There are so many different kinds of water in this day and age, so it can be tricky to know which is the most beneficial. We have put together all the important information you need to know about structured water and its benefits in this article. What Does "Structured Water" Mean? Structured water, also known as hexagonal water, refers to water molecules that form a hexagonal cluster. It is believed that structured water is very similar, if not the same, as pure, untouched, and uncontaminated water found in glacier melts and natural springs. Structured water has a chemical formula of H3O2, which means it has three hydrogen molecules combined with two oxygen molecules—different from the normal H2O formula. Structured water is thicker, denser, and more viscous than normal water and can store and release energy. The molecules of structured water are believed to have a higher vibrational charge, which is more beneficial for the human body and results in increased hydration. Is Structured Water Safe to Drink? Structured water is safe to drink and is considered more beneficial than processed water. The processes involved in restoring water to its structured state are also harmless. The benefits of structured water are more effective for our health. Health Benefits of Structured Water The most popular benefits of structured water include the following: Helps the cells of the body recover quickerDetoxifies the body of toxic chemicals and harmful frequenciesManages stress and metabolism by increasing organ activity and enhancing resilienceBoosts energy by encouraging immune system functioning and longevitySupports the immune system by promoting optimal bioavailability of nutrientsEasier absorption by the body, which improves hydration Can You Make Your Own Structured Water? It is possible to make structured water from the comfort of your own home. Water can be returned to its structured form using several different methods, including magnetizing it through a process called vortexing, exposing the water to natural heat and energy like sunlight, exposing the water to ultraviolet or infrared light, or storing it in a gemstone water bottle. We also offer a range of wonderful water structuring products, making structuring and enhancing your own water a lot easier. Check out our blog on making structured water for a more in-depth guide. How Long Does Water Stay Structured For? When entering the world of structured water, people often wonder how long the water stays structured. The answer depends entirely on the environment the water is exposed to. When water molecules bond in a hexagonal pattern, it creates H3O2, allowing for more efficient hydration and faster energy movement. However, when water is unstructured, it forms irregular patterns and angles that are not as easily absorbed by the body. Natural springs, tumbling streams, rain, exposure to sunlight, and balanced minerals are natural ways water is structured to create a hexagonal pattern. When water is exposed to unnatural energies, toxins, contaminants, and chemicals, it loses its structure, and the energized bonds created when forming H3O2 are broken. Put simply, structured water stays structured until something de-structures it. The H3O2 compounds will stay intact until they touch something that is strong enough to disorganize the molecules, including the following: Prolonged stagnation (more than seven days)Filtration or water softening systemsReverse osmosisMicrowaving water to heat itChemicalsPlastic storage containers such as bottled waterExposure to artificial electromagnetic waves or fieldsExposure to high electromagnetic fieldsForcing it through long straight pipes Here is a list of everything that reinforces H3O2: Healthy plants, soil, and microbesSunlight and moonlightThunder and lighteningGemstones that resonate with waterBalanced minerals in the correct equilibriumCopper vesselsVortexesOrganic fruit and vegetables with a high water content While structured water will remain structured until it is disturbed by something that breaks the H3O2 bonds, it is most energized and hydrating when it comes straight out of your structuring device, so it is best to drink it as soon as possible to reap all the benefits. Should You Drink Structured Water? Structured water does the body no harm and actually comes with a long list of health benefits, including increased energy and hydration levels. Making your own structured water can be as simple as purchasing a structuring device, so you can and should enjoy all the benefits of this amazing H3O2.
How to Make Structured Water

Structured Water

How to Make Structured Water
Structured water, also known as hexagonal water, is water where the molecules form a hexagonal cluster. Structured water is said to have very close similarities to pure and uncontaminated water found in natural springs and glacier melts. In this article, we will guide you through the differences between structured water and unstructured water and how to make your own structured water at home. Structured Water vs. Unstructured Water Unstructured water has a chemical formula of H2O, meaning two hydrogen atoms combine with one oxygen atom to make up a water molecule. Structured water, on the other hand, has a chemical formula of H3O2, which means that three hydrogen atoms combine with two oxygen atoms to form something chemically different from “normal” water. Structured water is denser, heavier, more viscous, and has higher alkalinity levels than normal water. It's also believed that structured water molecules have a higher electrical charge than unstructured water, which is vital for proper cell functioning in the body. Structured water molecules are also more easily absorbed by the cells in the body, thanks to their shape. In contrast, unstructured water molecules clump together and form irregular angles that make it more difficult for the cells to absorb. A person drinking unstructured water can still become dehydrated because the size of the unstructured water molecules may not be as effective for cell absorption. Making Your Own Structured Water The Crystal Method Crystal water and structured water are believed to be the same thing. Many people suggest that you can create structured water by charging it with crystals. Rose quartz, clear quartz, and amethyst are good places to start because they are water-safe. Other than that, you will need a glass jar and some clean water. Steps: Begin by filling your jar with high-quality water and place it where it will get some sunlight—this way, the water will be charged through the crystals and heat energy.Place your crystals in your glass jar and put the lid on if you have one.Leave the crystals and the jar for a couple of hours.You can remove the crystals from the water or leave them in—the choice is yours. The Funnel Method This method makes use of a vortex technique—which we will cover in more detail in the section below. You will need a funnel, a smooth stone or crystal that is not a perfect sphere, clean water, and marbles. Steps: Take your funnel and place it over the opening of a glass bottle. Take the smooth crystal or stone and place it into the funnel—but make sure that the hole is not completely blocked. Fill the funnel up to halfway with marbles.Pour your clean water over the marbles, which will create a vortex effect as it runs over them, structuring the water.You should do this a few times for the best effect. The Copper Method It is believed that adding a copper plate to your water vessel not only removes impurities from the water but also restores it to its natural, structured state. You will need one clay or steel pot, clean water, a copper plate or sheet that is at least 1mm thick, lemon, and salt. Steps: Clean your pot and fill it with high-quality water.Thoroughly scrub both the sides of the copper plate with a lemon and salt mixture until any oxidation marks are removed.Rinse the copper plate and wipe it dry.Place the plate into the pot and cover the pot with a lid.Let the water sit for 6-8 hours—or overnight—for best results.Remove the copper plate and use your structured water for drinking and cooking purposes. Infrared or UV Light Method It is believed that structured water can be made using ultraviolet or infrared light. You will need a glass jar, clean water, and either a UV or infrared light. Fill your glass jar with clean water.Plug in your chosen light source and place it so that it’s shining on the glass jar or from above.Leave it on for 3-4 hours. Can Structured Water Be Made in a Blender? One of the ideas behind making structured water is to vortex it, which charges it and allows it to hold more energy. In nature, vortices are energy accumulators and energy transformers. A vortex has the ability to restore natural energy patterns to something that has been disturbed or contaminated. Vortices provide the ability to remove all forms of contaminants in water by transforming the electromagnetic frequencies of the water back to their original, healthy state. When water flows through a vortex, de-structured, contaminated, and corrupted water molecules are returned to a structured state. With that being said, if your blender creates a vortex effect, blending your water may restore it to a structured state. However, water structuring devices like the Mayu Swirl are a better choice to guarantee you receive the vortex water benefits. In Summary Structured water is found naturally occurring in untouched and uncontaminated water sources. There are many benefits to structured water. However, it's not always easy to access this water, so people make their own. While there are various methods for making structured water at home, one of the easiest and most effective ways is to purchase a water structuring device to ensure you truly reap the benefits of structured water.
