Precipitator test done in two glasses of water
Sales people from various water purifier companies of late are making
use of a so called “Precipitator” or Jam Jar Purity Test to
supposedly prove that all water except for the water produced via their
purification equipment, is impure and subsequently unsafe for human consumption.
below to get the full picture.
The Jam Jar Test is basically a very crude, rudimentary,
electrical circuit, similar to a car battery or scientifically known as
an electrochemical circuit. When used as a so-called “Precipitator”
it gives the customer the impression that the water is not safe to drink.
It does this by precipitating or electrochemically introducing natural
salts into the water that appears as a brown “goo”, which
makes the water look awfully dirty.
Water purified using a reverse osmosis system (RO) has very little or
no minerals present in the water, thus the water will not conduct electricity
and the precipitation will not result.
TDS Test is also being used by certain Sales People to test the
water. This tester measures the amount of Total Dissolved Salts(TDS) in
could measure normal or purified water with a higher mineral count than
RO and could state that if the water has a high TDS content then it is
impure and unhealthy. TDS alone is not an indication of the safety of
the water as it only tests the mineral content.
OF THIS SCAM
does the water change colour?
It is simply explained :
Osmosis (RO ) water contains very little to no minerals .
water does not conduct electricity since to conduct electricity minerals
need to be present in the water.
electricity is not present then none of the chemical reactions can occur.
Therefore no discolouration will be visible in the RO water.
to water which contains no minerals.
- The water
they compare the RO water to contains minerals.
minerals will allow electricity to flow as current through the water.
- This subsequently
allows the precipitation and an electrochemical reaction to take place
which discolours the water. The change in colour can show up as a grey
precipitate or brown sludge.
- This colour
change is normal and can be expected.
YOU MAY BE TOLD….
is no reaction with the RO water, salespeople could claim that the RO
water is less contaminated and that other so-called purified waters, bottled
waters or tap waters are dirty and contain unhealthy levels of impurities.
What you may not be aware of is that there are naturally occurring minerals
in purified or bottled water.
DO NOT BE FOOLED OR PERSUADED THAT THIS
COLOUR CHANGE IS AN INDICATION OF IMPURITIES IN WATER!
