New Zealanders have been urged to avoid using water purification machines in their homes after they were revealed to have been sold online.
Key points:Electrical purifiers are not currently sold in Australia and the Government has launched a review into their useElectrical water purifying machines have been a popular part of the home for decades and are now used in many parts of the countryElectrical machine manufacturer and purifier maker, Jumia said it would offer customers refunds for the machines if they were sold onlineThe machines have also been used in Europe and the US, with similar machines also being sold in Japan and China.
“The Government’s review into the use of electric water purificators is now underway,” Jumium said in a statement.
“If we are to ensure that these machines are no longer used in our homes, we need to ensure the public are aware of the risks involved.”
Electrical machines have long been popular with families and many are used in areas where there is limited water supply.
They are often found in the kitchen, bathroom, living room, bedrooms and even bathrooms of households with little to no water supply and can be used to provide the household with water for cooking, cleaning and showering.
“While there have been some cases where the machine has been used inappropriately, the majority of instances are accidental and occur in the home,” Jomia said.
“In this instance, we would be providing refunds to any customer who purchased an electric water system from Jumias website.”
Electronic water purifing machines are often seen in kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms, living rooms and even bathroom stalls.
They can include a water purifyer, a water filter, a heat pump, an electric tank and even a vacuum.
The machines were also popular among students in Australia’s New South Wales and Victoria, who often used them to provide water for their classrooms.
Electrical tap water purifiying machines can be found in most Australian schools.
They were also used in some of Australia’s overseas locations.
In the United States, they are used for domestic drinking water.
In Japan, they were used to treat drinking water from tap water in residential areas.
A new study from Jomium estimated the global use of electrical water purifications could reach more than one billion litres annually.
“Electric water purified machines have become a popular household amenity and a popular water purveyor,” Jomea said.
“They are also being increasingly used by the global food industry, healthcare professionals, businesses and schools.”
Electric water machines have a wide range of uses, including to purify drinking water for household use.
“They are used to purifying drinking water in the shower, washing dishes, and even cleaning dishes,” Jummia said, “as well as for cooking and bathing.”
The machines can also be used in commercial applications, including water treatment, filtration and disinfection, he added.
