I actually work for United Utilities, the Water Board in the North West. To be honest, for the price your gonna pay for a Brita filter, the actual difference you’ll taste in your water, is minimal, if not non existant. Basically, your water is treated on at least two occassions – once upon first being gathered from the resevoir / borehole that feeds you, and secondly, once it enters your local treatment works by the water board – all impurities are removed, the colouration is checked, the acidity is checked, the hardness is checked and also minimal levels of Chloring are added to kill any Germs (I stress Minimal – dont go thinking swimming pools on me!). The pipes feeding you water are either Cast Iron / Alkathene – which due to the high water pressure are amazingly clean. In most cases Brita / other filters predominantly only act as a ‘Placebo’ whereby just because you have a filter – it appears to taste better.

Honestly… it’ll do sweet FA for the Taste / Purity / Hardness / cleanliness of your water – save your money

Yes, very much worth it. We have one, the filters last a long time. I will have to dig out the manual to see how often to change.

It is like bottled water on demand. Save a few of the empty bottles, the better ones, and fill from the Brita. Don’t fill too full, throw them in the freezer and you will have iced bottle water on demand. Just grab and go.

It is well worth it.

We also have a Brita water pitcher my fiance carries with her to work. She is a caregiver and she can filter any water anywhere.

From the Brita website:
Basically the activated charcoal in the filters traps the chlorine so you do not drink it.

Why is chlorine added to tap water?

Treatment Plants add chlorine at P.O.E. (Point of Entry) to remove germs and ensure they don’t re-appear while the water travels many miles through the pipes to your tap (P.O.U. …Point of Use). While the amount of chlorine added is regulated and not considered dangerous, it does impair taste and odour plus there is a definite chance that it can combine with organic compounds to produce chlorinated hydrocarbons that may lead to health related problems. The activated carbon in the Filter will reduce the chlorine by up to 99%.

Brita filters are excellent for the price. They utilize activated carbon filters, which last for about 3 or 4 months, and are easily and inexpensively replaced (the filter, not the pitcher). Activated Carbon acts to absorb odors, tastes, and harmful particles from water, and once absorbing something on a micro-level, it holds on to it.
I recommed Brita filters highly. It’s the next best thing to an RO water filter (reverse osmosis).

Good luck.

5 Tips for Writing the Perfect Blog Post
If you use WordPress, or Blogger, or any other modern blogging tool for that matter, the search engines are “pinged” and know right away that you have made a post. So, don’t worry about submitting it to search engines manually (and for heaven’s sake, don’t pay someone who claims to do that)!

In general, the best method nowadays is to generate some social traffic. Post a link to you post to Facebook, Twitter, pin your post’s featured image to Pinterest.

Catchy Headlines
Business Models are simulations of actual business functioning.
They act as ideal real life examples,and help participants actively discuss the pros and cons of the situation given.

A business Model gives a Full Account of any particular Business Scenario. Readers of this model/ Participants are then asked to discuss the strengths and weaknessess of it. Put it simply, one has to SWOT analyze the Business Model based on different parameters.

Each participant comes up with his/her own views on the subject. Cumulative views and different view points are then listed and ranked based on their importance and relevance.

Thus at the end of the session, a business models suitability and viability is drafted and conclusions are drawn thereon.

The more the Business Model Analysis a person does, the more exposed he gets to real life corporate situations.
Hence it is said, that Business Models act as Good Simulators.

Search Engine Optimization
A search engine is a service provided by some company (Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, etc.) which will search through millions of web pages for keywords that a person types into a field. For instance, if I type “Puppy” into a search box on Google’s web site, there are currently 40,800,000 matches available. If the search provider has a good search algorithm in their software, then the most relevant pages should be listed first. In my case, I’m a happy searcher, because after the Google Image samples, the first result listed is the Puppy Linux website, which is the only Puppy I would ever be searching for online. Most search providers keep track of what websites people will actually visit after doing a search. They then use the results to make sure those pages are closer to the top of the list for the next time someone searches for the same keyword(s).

Image search optimization is about using images on your website to draw more “click-throughs” from the search provider, thereby raising your rank in the search list. This, in turn, helps to ensure that you keep getting more visits to your site. A neat article I just found by typing “image search optimization” into Google Search is linked below.
