What Water Filters Should I Install?
The best types of water filters that should be installed are:
|Type of Water Filtration System||Model||Positives|
|Under Sink||APEC ROES-50 Reverse Osmosis System||
This system is installed under the sink and has its own tap to provide clean filtered water. It will remove any heavy metals, bacteria or other contaminants through the water filter cartridge.
This type of water purification system has five stages of water treatment, is easy to connect to the existing sink and provides quality water filtration.
|Attach to Tap||PUR Faucet Water Filtration System||
For a high quality water filter that connects to an existing tap, this model is great. It will mount easily to the tap and will remove unwanted contaminants from the water.
Once the internal filter needs replacing after two to three months it is affordable and easy to complete. This type of filter water solution also has an on and off switch for when filtered water is needed or not.
|Whole Home||Aquasana Whole House Water Filter System||
When filtered water wants to be used across the whole home instead of just the kitchen this is an amazing model. To be used for shower filters, bathroom tap filters to the laundry sink, filtered water can be accessed anywhere.
It can last up to 4,000,000L providing safe water for the different water supplies around the home. The water purifier removes chlorine, heavy metals and other contaminants.
|Filter Jugs||Brita 12-Cup Stream Filter Pitcher||
When wanting a water jug that will filter the water then this is one of the highest-quality jugs. It will save the need for always purchasing plastic bottles and is great for when a sink water filter cannot be done.
When the filter needs to be replaced it will switch a light on as well. It can serve up to 12 cups of water and will filter while in the fridge. The main containment it will filter includes chlorine and other particles.
|Countertop Filter||PUR Ultimate 18-Cup Water Filter Dispenser||
For family filter water systems this model is great as it can serve up to 18 cups of water. Lead and other contaminants will be removed from the water that is filtered inside of this model.
It is designed to be placed under the sink when not in use then can sit over a countertop to serve the filtered water. It is easy to operate and a great way to access filtered water.
What are the Different Types of Water Filtration Systems?
The main types of water filters that can be installed around the home are:
Whole Home Water Filters
If the water that enters the home is considered ‘hard’ water or is not reliable then this system will filter all water that enters the home. It will soften the water and remove the contaminants from the water. This type of water filtration system is expensive to install and will need a lot of time and labour. But if the water nearby is not reliable then this type of system is recommended.
Under the Sink Water Filtration
When filtered drinking water is needed then this type of filtration unit can be installed under the sink. It is easy to install and connect to the current water main and will reliably clean the water. These might take up a whole shelf under the sink but are greatly effective at providing clear and clean drinking water.
Tap Attachment Filters
These connect to the tap and are more commonly connected to the kitchen sink. There is an option to have the filtered water switched off if it is not needed, such as washing the dishes. This model of water filtration system will work with most taps but not more unique designs.
The filter will need to be replaced more often than an under the sink water filtration system. Tap attachment filters are overall easy to install, affordable and will remove contaminants from the water to make it safe for drinking.
Water Filter Jugs
These systems will need to be refilled with water to filter that water but are great for those who do not need a large filtration system. The jug has an attached filter that will clean the water that is poured into it and this jug can be stored in the fridge. They are great for treating water, removing the need to buy plastic bottles and are also good for when hosting.
Countertop Water Filters
Similar to water jug filters, these will need water to be refilled into it and will filter the water. This type of filter is larger though and is designed to sit over the counter. They will need to be refilled less frequently but will often not fit inside of common fridges. They are great at filtering water while can be moved around the home easily.
