A (positive) article was written about this:

in our local paper. My bollox meter immediately went to "Warning!!!".

Unfortunately my knowledge is far too limited to make a valid judgement, but there are many things (using silver they way they claim to be using it, the low concentration it would have in water, the claim that the water remains pathogen free for up to 24 months) that make me suspicious.

The claims are quite dangerous if false: people drinking water thinking it's safe when its not.

Does anyone know anything about this?

Just realised that this should be in the "Junk Science" section.

Perhaps a kindly Mod will move it for me :)

Yeah, all kinds of warning signals. I'm sent them a email, lets see if they respond.

In your FAQ you say that "Aqua Salveo™ Water Disinfectant has been tested as effective against the following bacteria commonly found in water"
Can you please point me to this research?

It does sound very fishy... Contains no chlorine or alcohol, Odorless and tasteless, used in very small quantities, can handle high temperatures, treated water with remain disinfected for up to 24 months, protects against bacteria, viruses, fungi and spores (Except it 'does not harm the good bacteria in the stomach because of the miniscule amounts used to disinfect the water') It very much sounds like magic, but that's me just being skeptical. Let's see what their response is to Mandarb.

I would also like to know what the mechanism of action is and whether or not they predict that the organisms with develop a resistance?

The product active ingredients include zinc, silver and copper ions. These minerals have additional health benefits that may improve the treatment of the following: athlete’s foot, eczema, minor cuts and bruises, skin infestations, bedsores, septic wounds, symptoms of thrush, sunburn and minor burns, fever blisters, acne, mosquito bites, etc.
Can't work out the relevance of this in connection with their product? It's like Bridgestone trying to sell tyres and their sales pitch is "also contains latex. It is very flexible, also used in the manufacture of gloves, condoms, skin tight pants..."

I see that they have ISO 9001 Certification. I couldn't find them on the SABS website, but found out that 'ISO 9001 – Quality Management Systems Certification' - so their manufacturing plant that makes this magic stuff has the SABS stamp of approval - probably like many other manufacturers of magic stuff. Someone may know more about SABS approvals etc.

they seem to be SABS approved. dont know if that means much anymore though.
