We often also deal with topics outside of water treatment. However, we always refer back to what these topics have to do with Merus. Thus, we have already taken up topics such as gravity or photosynthesis.
In this blog post, we want to illustrate the effect of the Merus Ring using the human body. For this purpose, we would like to use our blood vessels and the entire body's own transport system as a comparison.
The body and its transport routes
The human body has a kind of conduit system, namely that of our blood. Our blood vessels transport our blood and thus all the important substances for our body down to the last fibre.
In order for the blood to flow through our body, we need our heart as a pump. To put it simply, it pumps blood into its chambers on one side and out again on the other. In this case, the heart valves act as mechanical valves, similar to a piston pump. Thus we have a closed circuit in which the fluid, in this case the blood, is and remains constantly in motion. In order to be able to transport the blood to all regions of the body, there are different blood vessels, also called veins. A distinction is made between veins, arteries and capillaries. Depending on the type of vessel, the properties are designed differently. Veins, for example, deliver the blood to the heart, for which they have so-called venous valves so that the blood cannot flow back. Arteries, also called arteries, carry the blood away from the heart. The capillaries act as an "intermediate station" between veins and arteries, where the blood is passed on from the arteries to the veins. The blood circulation therefore only ever moves in one direction. The walls of all blood vessels are elastic and can change their diameter.
When the system threatens to clog
More commonly known as vascular calcification, arteriosclerosis is a widespread disease. In this case, substances such as lime, bacteria or the like are deposited on the walls of the vessels and lead to narrowing or even blockage of the arteries.
This can have serious consequences for the body, such as heart attacks or strokes.
Arteriosclerosis is a gradual process. It takes some time before you notice that there are deposits or blockages in the arteries and you can no longer reverse them. The effects usually only appear at an advanced age.
What Merus can do for the "heart circulation" of the house
If we now transfer our figurative idea of the network of blood vessels to our water treatment world, we can draw a comparison by assuming that the water pipes represent the veins of a house. Like veins, water pipes have different functions and properties, such as diameter or material.
These calcify after some time and deposits, incrustations and blocked pipes occur. Older pipes and houses are particularly affected.
Although houses do not suffer from heart attacks or strokes, they do suffer from pitting, unclean water or even microbiological contamination.
Unlike in the human body, with Merus we offer "undoing". By our Merus Ring nurturing these "diseases" back to health, solving and preventing them. No matter what kind of conduction, we help sustainably and effectively. Seen in this way, the Merus Ring can thus be titled as medicine for the house.
