Water... we all need it for our very existence and it is so important that our families (especially kids) have access to clean and pure water at all times.
But why exactly is water so important?
Aside from quenching our thirst and keeping us cool and hydrated, water aids in various important functions in our body — including transporting nutrients to our organs and tissues, removing waste and other toxins, and regulating our body temperature.
Drinking filtered water is an easy and convenient way to ensure that you — and your children — are able to take in water in its purest and cleanest form .
But that's not the only reason your family should drink filtered water. Click Next to find out what the others are.
Living in hot, tropical Singapore, we know that our fun-loving little ones sweat a lot, thereby losing a lot of fluids. Because of this, it’s important that they stay hydrated throughout the day.
For our children's healthy growth and development, they need to rehydrate themselves with water throughout the day. This is why nutritionists recommend that kids — and adults — drink at least 8 glasses of water daily.
Of course, as parents, we want to make sure that our kids are drinking water that is of the best possible quality. So how do you ensure this happens?
One easy and convenient way to get safe-to-drink and pure water is to use high quality filtered water dispensers such as those manufactured by 3M™.
With over 75 years of experience in providing families all around the world with water of the highest quality, 3M™ understands your desire to secure your family’s health.
Their Hot, Cold & Room Temperature Filtered Water Dispenser uses a miniaturised 3M Filter based on proven filtration technology that is used worldwide not only in homes, but also in fast-food restaurants and pharmaceutical labs.
3M™ water filters also have a range of built-in innovative features that are designed to give you and your family only the best quality drinking water.
Keep clicking on the next few slides to find out exactly what these 5 features are!
3M™'s AP2-G range’s unique miniaturisation carbon block technology has half the volume of the existing AP2 range, while matching flow capacity and filter efficiency for chlorine and sediment.
This cartridge is tested in accordance
with NSF™ international standards and helps give you better quality water by:
- Reducing chlorine taste and odour;
- Reducing sediment down to 0.5 microns; and
- Reducing 99.95 percent of Protozoan cysts like Cryptosporidium & Giardia, which may cause a foul smell in stagnant water and
gastrointestinal illnesses like diarrhea.
The dispenser is free of bisphenol A
(BPA) so you need not worry about
chemicals leaching into your drinking water.
This is significant because BPA can disrupt neurological functions and pose risks to our health.
