If you care about you and your family’s health then you will know that drinking good clean water is a key part of your wellness. With so many options for how to provide the best water, it can be confusing to decide. The most convenient and economical, is choosing a water filter system to suit your needs.
Buying your water at the supermarket and lugging it home yourself is very inconvenient and tiresome. Having it delivered for you is easier. Tap water, although convenient, contains chlorine, fluoride, VOCs and many other pollutants that can be harmful to your health. Pathogens such as bacteria, parasites as well as cryptosporidium cysts and giardia are potential threats that are easily overcome with the use of an effective water filter system. Another one of the important health benefits you and your family gain is that the natural minerals present will also be left in the water as they are still able to pass through.
“But what if I drink rainwater from a tank?” If you have a rainwater tank, you may feel that you don’t need any filter system for your drinking water. The sad truth is that rainwater collected from a roof and then stored in a tank is highly susceptible to contamination from environmental pollutants such as toxic metals in the form of dust from car exhausts that have come to rest on the roof as well as bird droppings and decaying organic matter. A filter system is a must to ensure your water is clean in any situation without having to boil it first.
What’s the best water filter system for you?
With a home water filter system, you will have great-tasting water literally “on tap” whenever you need it, without needing to store or lift large bottles of spring water. However, there are a few things to consider when choosing your filtration system.
Do I want to see my water filter? If you answered “yes” to this, then a benchtop or stand-alone system with an optional cooler function may be what you are after to encourage you to grab that extra hydration you need but perhaps don’t always remember to take because out of sight is out of mind.
If you answered “no” and you prefer to have your filter system discreetly tucked away under bench, or if space is limited for you, then an undersink option will probably work best.
Having your home water purifiers connected to your mains water, whether it is on the bench or undersink, will provide you with worry free, hassle-free, great-tasting healthy water whenever you need it.
