Diamond Coral Water Filter System

There are many water filters available in Malaysia, investing in the right system is very important. We have recently installed an indoor Diamond Coral Water Filter system at our home.

The main problem with the supplied water into our home causes a lot of concern for much Malaysian. We have also installed at an outdoor unit that automatically backwashes the filter twice a day and each time you can see the outflow of brownish water oozing out from it. A very worrying feeling on the quality of the supplied water.

As our body consists of 75% to 78% water and I personally believe it is important to consume the filtered water to ensure that; our body is able to drink it without any concern.

My doctor also advise us to drink at least 8 glass of water daily; So, when my current water filter has served its’ time, we decided to buy a new indoor water filter system. After searching the Internet and thru some friend recommendation, we have decided to install the Diamond Coral Water Filter system mainly because the filtered water is Alkaline water. I have done some research that drinking Alkaline water has many advantages over other filtered water.

For one it helps to neutralize the acid in our bloodstream, which leads to increased oxygen levels and improved energy and metabolism; it also contains antioxidant properties; cleanses the colon; rejuvenates our skin, and lubricates muscles and joints.

Moreover, filtered water provides better tasting and odourless drinking water by removing chlorine and bacterial contaminants. Once we have drunk the coffee and tea which uses the Alkaline water to brew it; we can taste the strong natural flavour and aroma of the coffee/ tea which has a natural and stronger taste.

Another way was the use of the filtered water to wash cut apples. Yes, after soaking the apples in the Diamond Coral alkaline filtered water, we can see that it does not turn brown as quickly as cut apples that use normal water to wash.

Overall, we have peace of mind knowing that the water we consume every day is clean filtered water. Since we have also installed a WaterBar system at home, we will use the filtered water for the WaterBar for our instant Warm Water. You can read about our WaterBar System here.

For more information, you can get in touch with them at Diamond Facebook Page or Diamond Website.
