Normal tap water – the problems
 


Water is an outstanding transportation vehicle for pollutants owing to its unique natural characteristics. We can observe this at a fine material level in our body as well as when we use water at a rough material level for cleaning purposes in the household and in industry.



However, we are facing increasingly paramount problems. For example:
In the human body:
- Arteriosclerosis.
- Heavy metal loads, etc.
Nature, household and industry:
- Some male fish are transformed into the opposite sex due to increased levels of hormones in the water.
- Limestone deposits in all kinds of technical devices, etc.

Thus, for water to fulfil its task as a cleaning agent it must be clean and pure. Only in this way can it take up and transport the pollutants.

We differentiate between two levels of purity:

1. Rough material purity (to be proven by chemical analysis).
Problem:
Usual tap water contains:
- Pollutants (e.g. heavy metals, nitrates).
- Unwanted materials (e.g. limestone).

Usual cleaning techniques are among others:
- Filtration.
- Mechanical precipitation, etc.



These techniques are good for applications with coarse material levels. At fine material levels, however, these techniques are not effective:
The pollutants stored in the water cluster can not be blocked by the filtration medium.


2. Fine material purity (only to be proven by biophysical investigation).
Problem:
Tap water creates larger and larger water clusters (+/- 700 molecules):



These large clusters store pollutants in their molecular structure in a very stable way:



How can we "release" these pollutants being trapped in their molecular structure?
By breaking up this structure:

As a consequence of the hydrogen bridges (connections between the water molecules) ...


... are extremely stable, there are only two possibilities for breaking up these hydrogen bridges:
1. Heating of the water to 400°C (very high technical and energetic effort).
2. Very intensive turbulent mixing of the water (successfully achieved by the GIE® Water Activation Technology.

Deposits in water pipelines:
Due to rust, lime and dirt deposits in water pipes house owners, housing administrations and industry have been facing very severe problems for decades. Depending upon water quality, the first impairments and damages already occur after 10 to 15 years. These are the results of rust, lime and dirt deposits in old water pipes:
- Brown, discoloured water.
- Pitting corrosion and thus the breakage/rupturing of water pipes.
- Diminished cross-section and thus decrease of pressure at the water discharge.
- Clogged armatures.
- Safety and protection facilities fail.
- Germ and bacteria formation (legionellas).
