It is known that water in China is not directly drinkable from the tap, while containing some unfriendly substances. Newly arrived expatriates are most often subject to troubles when drinking this new water, which offers a striking contrast to their homeland one. As such, precautions are taken. 众所周知，中国的自来水不能直接饮用，并且当中会含有一些有害物质。刚刚来到中国的外籍人士在饮用水方面也许会遇到麻烦。这里的水与他们国家的水相比有明显的区别。因此，我们需要采取措施改善水质。
Boiling water or purchasing bottled water are the most common way to drink for China residents, but more and more people are turning to drinking water purifiers, much more convenient and cost-saving.
Learn all you need to know about drinking purified water, and how purified water can be used in a different way in winter! 阅读以下内容，了解更多关于纯净水的内容，以及在冬天，我们可以在哪些方面使用纯净水。
Drinking Water Purifiers
Fresher, more user-friendly and environmental, drinking water filters have become more preferable compared to bottled water. They are the best technology to remove harmful components in drinking water, such as pollutants and impurities like chlorine, bacteria, heavy metals and organic compounds including antibiotics and pesticides, which should all be considered dangerous to human consumption and removed. While it also removes minerals, the number of minerals absorbed through water is in any case way lower than through food, and should be considered as futile compared to the necessity of drinking clean water, at least clean enough for drinking.
Our Drinking Water Purifiers use mainly spun fiber, activated carbon filter and reverse osmosis membrane to remove pesticides, chlorine and heavy metals larger than 0.0001 um. Theoretically nothing is going through except H2O. The taste of water is good due to the removal of particles which might alter its fresh taste. No sediments will remain after boiling, and the Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) reading of the filtered water is less than 50, making it clean enough for human consumption. Some RO systems also have re-mineralization filters, as you can see in below.

Another way to use purified water in winter is through humidifiers. The North of China especially is very dry in winter, and as such, the home inside air quality can be favorable to irritations and illnesses such as a cold or the flu. In order to prevent this, humidifiers are the best answer: they prevent dryness by adding moisture to the air, thanks to water.
Now, if you want to leave in a fresh and clean environment, why not use purified water in your humidifier?
The better water quality will make sure that you are breathing a cleaner air, moisturized safely. This will in turn help a lot with treating dryness of the skin, nose, throat and lips. You simply need to feel the humidifier with purified water collected from the tap linked to your water purifier, and enjoy!
We currently have a discount on our humidifiers, as you can see below:
If you live in the South of China, such as Guangzhou, dryness is not really an issue. On the other hand, humidity levels are quite high, especially in laundry rooms, bathrooms and basements, where it takes longer to evaporate. Humidity can be a source of mold, and while it is less striking than in summer, it is also a winter issue.
For this, getting your hands on a dehumidifier is probably the simplest and the most effective solution. Place it away from walls, furniture and curtains for the circulation to be effective. Doors and windows should be closed while in use, and the collected water should be emptied after each use before moving it to a new room.
