Tap water in China is not recommended to drink as it contains lots of chlorine, metals and other impurities. Even for cleaning, it won’t make a good choice either without proper filtration. You might be one of the those who find that...
Water is sometimes rusty and with strong smell.
Hair is brittle and losing volume, and skin is dry and itchy.
A lot of stains are attached on your taps and glasses.
Boilers' bottoms are with sediments and taste for the boiled water is not good at all.
To solve the problems and provide cleaner water for families, Greenwave provides an extensive line of filters and services since March of 2010. Over the past 8.5 years, a total of 10,000 users have been using our services in 26 cities of China including Beijing, Shanghai, Nanjing, Tianjin and so on. Most of them are from different embassies, consulates and fortune 500 companies. Among these, British council and Nike are hiring Greenwave for standard cleaner water services for their management teams.
If you want to know more about the different options and see what filters are suitable for your needs, the following categorized contents should be very helpful.
Two main types of residential water solutions -- POE & POU
两种家用净水方案 -- 中央净水和分点净水
There are two main ways to filter the water for a living place -- putting a big system on the main water pipe to filter all water used in the house, which is called ‘Point Of Entry’ (POE) solution, or installing individual filters at different water use points to filter water at that specific area only, which is named ‘Point Of Use’ (POU) solution.
POE solution: all water used in the house is filtered by a central system
POU solution: water used at different points is filtered by separate filters
POE -- Whole House Purifier & Softener 中央净水 -- 中央净水器和中央软水机
For the POE solutions, two kinds of products are usually needed -- whole house purifier and whole house softener. They do not have to be installed together but users are suggested to do so, for these two products can remove different pollutants and the functions are complementary to each other.
Whole house water filter: efficiently removes large particles such as sands, rusts and sediments, chlorine, odors, pesticide and part of metals; more needed if just considering one product
Whole house water softener: effectively removes calcium and magnesium ions from water to greatly reduce the hardness of tap water; more recommended if central water boilers are used or central floor heating system related to water is used
The filtered water through either the whole house filter or central water softener will be suggested for cleaning purposes only. It will help protect our skin and hair, yet it is not clean enough and not recommended to be used for drinking/cooking directly.
To install the big system, certain conditions should be met such as enough space, drainage setting, electricity supply, and even some damage. Not every family will meet such considtions, besides the big investment. For these who want to install a product at the entry point, some simple and alternative choices like the following could be considered.
POU -- Drinking Water Solutions 分点净水 -- 直饮水方案
Instead of purifying all water used in the house, some people might just look for solutions to purify the tap water for drinking purpose. Greenwave takes the same standard on the quality of water used for drinking and cooking. For water going into our body through either drinking or cooking, it should be the cleanest and safest. With Greenwave residential drinking water solutions, both the needs on drinking and cooking water can be met at the same time.
In order to make the water free of heavy metals and all other pollutants, reverse osmosis (RO) filter is the core component of Greenwave drinking water purifiers. RO is a kind of filtration technology that takes away over 99% of measurable pollutants, making the tap water completely safe for every member in a family.(Some minereals will be brought back through the post remineralization filter set.The whole system could be rent too.)
Greenwave drinking water purifier: installed underneath the kitchen sink, the purified water is supplied from a new separate faucet on the sink, or it can also be connected to a refrigerator, ice maker or coffee machine if needed
Customized solutions are available when there is any special need. For example, if there is no hole available on the counter or permitted to be drilled for installing the small faucet, a duel faucet could be provided to allow the system to be used and avoid any damage. If the valves are irregularly sized or the kitchen floor is wooden, some customized adapters or water leakage alarms could be used. If hot or cool drinking water is required, an instant water heater or cooler can be installed together with the system, or a pipeline water dispenser can be added, and so on.
POU -- Shower Water Solutions 分点净水 -- 沐浴净水方案
Chlorine and hardness in the water are the main reasons for the skin and hair problems. The issues are especially prominent for expats who are new here. Greenwave shower water solutions can be applied in different scenarios and have been tesified by thousands of families over the past few years. The filtered water will be much cleaner and softer than the tap water.
Greenwave ClearFall shower filter: it is used to replace your original handheld shower or bathtub shower to effectively remove the residual chlorine from tap water, soften water and increase the negative ions content, giving you a fresher shower experience
Greenwave ClearFall 手持花洒过滤器：取代您原有的手持花洒，高效去除水中余氯且软化水，增加负离子，给您带来不一样的沐浴体验
Greenwave ShowerKing shower filter: it can be installed for any rain shower or wall mounted shower to remove chlorine and part of metals and soften water
Greenwave ShowerKing 沐浴净水器：适用于顶洒或类似的沐浴装置，有效去除余氯、部分金属及软化水
Greenwave shower softener: it is usually installed along with a ClearFall to further soften the water; it is especially needed for the people who encounter serious skin problems or feel there is matallic smell in the tap water
Customization services are available when there is any special need or when the shower fittings are irregular.
POU -- Faucet Water Solutions 分点净水 -- 龙头净水方案
Clean water from faucets plays an important role in our life as it has influence on food safety as well as skin care and other aspects. Filters are strongly recommended for kitchen and bathroom faucets to remove the harmful elements from water and create softer and safer water for cleaning.
Greenwave Ozone water purifier: it is installed on the kitchen tap to remove pesticide residual and disinfect fruits and veggies without any byproduct, which is a much easier way than traditional solvents such as vinegar, salt, baking soda and veggie cleaner
Greenwave WaterBaby faucet filter: it is usually installed on bathroom sink or bathtub faucets to remove chlorine and part of metals, making the water softer and cleaner for your skin, and it can also be installed for the kitchen faucet as well
Greenwave WaterBaby 龙头净水器： 通常安装在卫生间台盆或浴缸的龙头上，有效去除余氯、重金属及软化水，使清洁用水更干净、安全；它也适用于厨房龙头
POU -- Laundry/Dishwasher Water Solution 分点净水 -- 洗衣机/洗碗机净水方案
A common problem of the water used for washing clothes is that clothes become yellow or hard after wash. Similarly, some people find that their tableware is left with fine particles or smells after wash. The issues are mostly caused by the sediments and chlorine in the tap water, so some functional filters are needed to address the problems.
Greenwave dishwasher filter: effectively removes dirt, rusts, fine sands and odors from water, generating cleaner water for washing dishes
Greenwave laundry filter: effectively removes large particles to make sure your clothes stay untainted by water pollutants
Not many companies have the above solutions and products at one portfolio like what we do, and very few have customized solutions that can meet different needs (according to our experience, over 30% of the families are with irregular taps, showers or special kitchen sinks). If you consider convenience and customized solutions more, Greenwave will be your ideal choice. Neverthelss, it will be always good to have some professional companies to do an onsite check before making any purchase.
