Welcome to AQUA FILTER MANAWATU
Passionate about the health of you and your family?
More and more we hear of the fear around the trust in the systems which should provide good quality NZ drinking water. There are increasing risks from contaminates and we have all seen some extraordinary lapses in quality.
As of Feb 2019, I have become a local Aqua business owner. The Aqua Filter Manawatu business will be servicing Manawatu, Whanganui, Ruapehu, and the Rangatikei. My team would love to be a part of your trusted better water solution.
We want to provide you a total understanding of what you drink and a long-term trust in the system you have chosen. We will manage the process to ensure you have total control over the best water for your home, workplace, or lifestyle block. I believe we have a great country and water is prescribed most of the time, but there are concerns we all cannot ignore.
Being a part of the solution: managing what you and your family, work colleagues, customers and friends drink is what our team are all about.
I chose and trust in Aqua Filters due to their longevity in the industry, great people, great products, water testing resources, and a focus on the best outcomes for water quality! Prior to investing in the local Aqua region, I was a customer of Aqua for over 10 years.
The team at Aqua have been providing solutions for years and provide exceptional value – they are simply the best.

Water Issues Manawatu Area
While Palmerston North has a great supply, other places like Feilding are struggling to meet drinking water standards. Some consumers may choose to take their water safety into their own hands.
For more information on compliance in your town, please click here and type in the name of your water supply and click search.
There are also many areas where people have individual supplies that they are responsible for maintaining.
These can include bacteria like E.coli, Salmonella and Campylobacter. Viruses like Hepatitis A & E, Norovirus and Calcivirus. As well as Protozoan parasites like Giardia.
Any water supply which is not a Town mains which meets drinking water standards should be considered a possible source of microbiological contamination.
As these are living organisms, they are likely to be present intermittently and the number of them present will vary.
These are commonly found in rain water supplies, a surface waters, springs and shallow or unsecured bores. This can also be a concern with some water schemes, particularly irrigation schemes that some people have connected to their homes.
As with all areas, what issues are present will depend on where the water is coming from.
Chemically rain water is very good, however as it falls through the air, it dissolves in some Carbon Dioxide, which makes it slightly acidic and corrosive to metal plumbing. This is more noticeable in plastic tanks, concrete tanks can offer some protection as they raise pH slightly.
There are a good number of people on these supplies supply in the region, these often have undesirable levels of iron, manganese, hardness, Silica and low pH.
Surface Water (Streams, Rivers, Creeks Dams etc)
Surface water sources are not common in this area. Those which are present tend to have heavy levels of sediment in them after rains and they can become discoloured from dissolved organic matter. Depending on the land they flow through, some can also have other mineral issues, like hardness and iron.
Most town supplies have chlorine in them for our safety, but some consumers may find the taste or smell unacceptable.
Occasional a small community may create their own water scheme to provide water to a number of houses in an area without a town supply. Some of these may leave the responsibility for drinking water safety in the hands of the home owner who has elected to connect to the scheme. These need to be tested and depending on the water source may experience some of the water issues described above
