causing your sanitary ware to stain?
A depth filter has four layers of filtration media, each of different
size and density. Light, coarse material lays at the top of the filter
bed. The media become progressively finer and denser in the lower
layers. Larger suspended particles are removed by the upper layers
while smaller particles are removed in the lower layers. Particles are
trapped throughout the bed, not in just the top few inches. That
allows a depth filter to run substantially longer and use less back-
wash water than a traditional sand filter.
Home Filtration System for Drinking Water
Spending lots of $$$ on bottled water? Lifting and storing those
heavy bottles of water everywhere?
Drinking water systems for tap water that tastes as good as it
should. Turn on better-tasting water in your home with drinking

the water it contains, is different. That’s why we’ve specifically
designed water filtration systems and purification solutions to
address impurities and issues that can cause problem water.*
The cause of problem water can vary by the area in which you live,
but you can learn more about specific issues common in your area to
help understand and diagnose problem water in your home. No mat-
ter what problem water issues you face, Culligan sets the standard

reverse osmosis water filtration and sophisticated interchangeable

Ecosystems – including, for example, forests, wetlands and
grassland – lie at the heart of the global water cycle. All fresh-
water ultimately depends on the continued healthy functioning
of ecosystems, and recognising the water cycle is essential to
achieving sustainable water management. Yet most economic
models do not value the essential services provided by fresh-
water ecosystems. This leads to unsustainable use of water
resources and ecosystem degradation. For example, the
Okavango river in Africa is one of the last unspoilt ecosystems
on earth. Pollution from untreated residential and industrial
wastewater and agricultural run-off also weakens the capacity
of ecosystem to provide water-related services.
There is a need to shift towards environmentally sustainable
economic policies that take account of the interconnection
between ecological systems. One challenge is to maintain a bene-
ficial mix between built and natural infrastructure and provision
of their respective services.
Economic arguments can make the preservation of ecosystems
relevant to decision-makers and planners. Ecosystem valuation
demonstrates that benefits far exceed costs of water-related
investments in ecosystem conservation. Valuation is also impor-
tant in assessing trade-offs in ecosystem conservation, and can
be used to better inform development plans. Adoption of ‘ecosys-
tem-based management’ is key to ensuring water long-term sus-
WATER IS URBANISATION
Every week, one million people move into cities.
Today, one in two people on the planet live in a city. And the
world’s cities are growing at an exceptional rate – 4 people
moved to cities in the time it took you to read this sentence. 93
per cent of the urbanization occurs in poor or developing coun-
tries, and nearly 40 per cent of the world’s urban expansion is
growing slums. Projections show that another 2.5 billion people
will move to urban centres by 2050.
The 2014 report of “World Urbanisation Prospects” by UN
DESA’s Population Division notes that the largest urban growth
will take place in India, China and Nigeria.
“Managing urban areas has become one of the most important
development challenges of the 21st century. Our success or fail-
ure in building sustainable cities will be a major factor in the suc-
cess of the post-2015 UN development agenda,” said John
Wilmoth, Director of UN DESA’s Population Division.
Thousands of kilometres of pipes make up each city’s water
infrastructure. Many antiquated systems waste more freshwater
than they deliver. In many fast-growing cities (small and medium-
sized cities with populations of less than 500,000), wastewater
infrastructure is non-existent, inadequate or outdated.
