What are the benefits of a water filtration system?
When you turn on the tap and are concerned about the quality of the water, it is time to look at installing a water filtration system. Water delivered to our homes is considered to be safe for drinking, however a variety of additives are used to treat the water to make it clean and safe for drinking. These additives can make the water smell or taste offensive, which can be a problem for some families.
Unpalatable tastes or odours are the downside of treated water, causing many home owners to install an under-sink water filtration system designed to remove many of these additives from their tap water. The alternative is to buy bottled water, which is a very expensive option and is not very environmentally friendly (think of all of that plastic in landfills!).
You can of course, opt for a whole house water filtration system, however most home owners find that having a separate tap on the kitchen sink, which provides filtered water is the most cost effective solution to their problem.
More specific benefits of installing an under-sink water filtration system include:
- Easy and quick to install
- It doesn’t take up any counter space in the kitchen
- Requires minimal maintenance
- Cost effective option to buying bottled water
- Environmentally friendly
- A wide selection of filter mediums are available
Types of filter mediums on the market
Whether you want a whole house filtration system or an under-sink water filtration system, the choice of filter medium depends on what you want to filter out of the water. The two most popular filter mediums are carbon filters and reverse osmosis membranes. The latter type of filter however, creates a lot of waste water from the filtration process.
- Carbon filters: These help to improve the taste, colour and smell of your drinking water and remove sediment, pesticides, chlorine, petrochemicals, but not heavy metals or fluoride.
- Reverse osmosis membranes: Containing a variety of filters, reverse osmosis water filtration systems remove fluoride, heavy metals, pesticides, petrochemicals, nitrates and chlorine from the tap water.
If you suffer from sediments or offensive smells in your tap water or are concerned about the level of chlorine, fluoride and other additives or contaminants in your drinking water, an under-sink water filtration system is the best and the most cost effective solution.
