Joshua asked me to look at the bottom of my water bottle yesterday and to my horror, I saw huge rusty looking particles floating in the water. I have been drinking this for the last one month since my water filter broke?!
So, I went to The Water Shop in Saberkas (Opposite SESCO) to buy a Doulton Ceramic Water Filter and a carbon secondary filter costing more than RM100.
The ceramic filter is white like pearl and after I ran the filter for just 10 minutes, this was the result. The white part above had been cleaned just to show the comparison.
This is how the filtration system looks like and how dirty the ceramic candle (right) looks after just 10 minutes! The ceramic filter is rated at 5 microm for filtering dirt or particles. The purpose of the carbon filter is for removing chemical, especially chlorine.
So, what is your conclusion? I dare not drink this tape water anymore without filtering. Amazingly dirty! Oh, perhaps full of mineral as well.
By the way, if you are interested to buy a set of such filter, it cost just over RM200 at The Water Shop as special offer is now on.
I live in Pujut, Miri.
