Welcome to AQUA FILTER NORTH SHORE

Hi, my name is Scott Guest, I was born in Scotland and immigrated to South Africa when I was five.  I have now immigrated to New Zealand nearly five years ago, and loving being here.
I have been doing water filtration for 2 years now and enjoy the challenge of getting people to change to healthy water.
I enjoy Golf, but rarely get to play and love all sports especially Rugby and English football.
I enjoy working with people and love entertaining friends round the BBQ.

Water Issues North Shore Area

Auckland’s North Shore is mainly on the Auckland Mains supply, which is a A-grade water supply. However the mains supply reaches Albany. Some of Albany and areas immediately north (e.g. Red Vale, Dairy Flat) have a rural water supplies, often water collected at individual properties.

Microbiological Contaminants

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.

Chemical/Mineral Contaminants

As with all areas, what issues are present will depend on where the water is coming from.

Rain Water
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.

Bore/Well/Spring Water
There are a good number of people on these supplies in the region, these often have undesirable levels of iron, manganese, hardness, Silica and/or low pH.
Those near the coast can have additional issues with salty water intrusion.

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.

Town Supplies
Auckland Town supply is very safe to drink and is monitored well by Watercare. The supply does contain Chlorine, the taste and smell of which may be undesirable to some consumers. Auckland supply also contains Fluoride which some consumers prefer to remove.

Water Schemes
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.
