Yesterday a join Eyeonspain with my blog which I called "Healthywater in spanish coast" but I didn't explain why that name and the purpose of the blog; I had been involved in water bussines more than 20 years and today we hear a lot of information about food, water corcening our health, and often this is confusing and contradictory. The water, we consum for domestic use

along the spanish coast-I live in Costa del Sol- although is potable in most of the municipalities, is not the best water we can get from the point of view of the health, because of the clorium, and the high content of mineral, etc. Recognized worldwide Health Authorities as World Health Organitation fix 500 mg/liter the maximun contain of mineral in the water to be consired as potable but other organitations also recognized as for example EPA fix this figure in 50 mg/l as the maximun content of solid in the water so we can consider as HEALTHY water. Most of the municipal water supplies are over 140 mg/l along the coast, where we have coast areas as for example Almeria, Murcia, Alicante, Valencia, etc which solids contents in the water are between 500 mg/l and 1000 mg/l. If we want to know the hardness of the water we get at home, all we have to do is to get a TDS  (Total Disolved Solids) meassure unit , and this will give us inmediatly the quantity of solids in our water at home... But many people say they don't drink water from the taps but they buy mineralwater. And there are also many information today which say mineral water is neither the most healthy water we can get because most of them has also a high content of solid (minerals mainly); only few of them has a low solid index in mg/l.

We can also watch several adverts in spanish TV of mineral water which include information about ph of the water, etc. and all this information I would like to share with you in this blog, as well as  your opinion about this matter, your expirience in this field, many homes along the spanish coast has installed at home a Reverse Osmosis machine to purify the water.
