LaVie, for premium sparkling water!
Do you like sparkling water?
Before going any further, you need to know the limits: for water to contain bubbles, CO2 must be injected into it. Rest assured, there is little danger for the planet in this operation, but the pH of your water will become more acidic.
Thus, a tap water is in neutral pH, that is to say approximately 7.5, a sparkling water sold in bottle is acid with a pH of 6.
Let's not forget that our body needs above all pure water with a balanced pH (WHO recommendation), so I recommend that you consume sparkling water in moderation.
This being said, the small bubbles have significant physical effects, and are probably responsible for a large part of its success. About 20% of French people consume them regularly.
Bubbles have the gift of bringing out the smells and tastes in a more pronounced way than in still water, in fact, they excite our taste buds.
So, if we use tap water that is a little too high in chlorine or taste, we will drink sparkling water that is too "typical", heavy in unpleasant flavours and smells. This is what pushes many of us to avoid carbonating machines and to continue to drink sparkling water in plastic bottles.
Treat the water with LaVie before carbonating
LaVie UV-A water purifiers® work without filters or maintenance and allow you to purify your tap water in 15 minutes.
They use an innovative technology, patented and exclusive to LaVie®: the photolysis of chlorine by UV-A radiation.
This treatment allows the removal of chlorine and its derivatives, chemical compounds such as certain pesticides or traces of medication, and tastes and odours that can be found in tap water.
The result, which is very qualitative, makes it possible to draw a definitive line on the consumption of water in plastic bottles.
The carbon footprint linked to the manufacture of the aluminium tube of the UV water purifier is neutralised in a few days of use compared to the equivalent consumption of water in plastic bottles.
I encourage you to try it, you can of course use any brand of carbonation machine, CO2 remains CO2, and the injection nozzle does not make much difference in quality between models.
Nevertheless, it is easier to find CO2 refills on the standard, so pay attention to this detail when choosing your equipment.
Above all, do not hesitate to express yourself on this blog after testing and return your impressions, we will publish them with pleasure.
To your health!
