Filter Cleaning

It was time to service our house's master water filter. I called the serviceman and he came fully armed with all the necessary equipments. This was how our filter looked like. The filtered sediments are good enough to make pots and pots of black coffee.

The filter consisted of a long piece of fabric-like material. The serviceman spread it out. Using high pressure water gun, the guy took 15 minutes to clean it.


Then the filter was rolled into it's original position.

In half an hour, the whole process completed. RM60 paid. Now I enjoy clean water.

I wonder if it's common to have such water quality which requires filtration.

Hi Josh,

At McD, we need to change the water filter twice a month and we use 4 filters before we can get the clean water and guess what...the filtered sediments still enough to make pots of "teh tarik".....

as a scientist, yes.. u need to filter the water again as it comes to ur house, especially when u need it for cooking food and beverages... it is much safer that way, my country's so small so not so much of a problem with water but then again, lots of brunei filter their water too.. its just safety and health conscious... I'm too lazy to change filter so.. instead, I bought mineral water.. its clean plus it has minerals :)

My fav mineral water so far is SPA. God! it tastes good!

Josh said...

[Nazz] Oo.. Nazz minat bontot tu yek? hahahah... Biar ler Yaz tu mencarut.

[Rizal] Ooo...minum mineral water je.... orang kaya tu....
