Drinking water filter and drinking water purifier systems
Do you have an issue with the taste or quality of your tap water? A Drinking water filter will be the answer.
Many people these days are aware of the issues they find with ordinary tap water and have taken the positive step to use a jug filter or even purchase bottled water. Unfortunately the inconvenience and high cost usually restricts their use.
A large number of people find the taste of water unpleasant due mainly to the presence of chlorine. The chlorine may also cause further taste issues as it combines with organic and inorganic compounds generally found in the supply water.
Many people now install a drinking water filter for water improvement, there are three main types filtration system available from Pure Choice. The types of drinking water filter for improvement depends how many impurities that you wish to address.
So how can this be improved?
A drinking water filter can be installed and plumbed to a cold tap (usually its own tap), it will transform the water that you drink.
Such drinking water filter systems are inexpensive to install and inexpensive to maintain.
People who enjoy the benefits of a drinking water filter find that day to day use of water consumed increases substantially. We are all advised to drink more water and this will be the case due to the pleasant improvements that a drinking water system will provide.
Together with drinking water improvement; cooking; beverages; home brewing; fish tank water; and cut flowers will benefit from the use of water filtration or purification.
The benefit of a drinking water filter is explained briefly here:
Drinking water filter and filtration systems mainly use activated carbon filter these may be powdered carbon or moulded blocks. The activated carbon filter for water is excellent where taste improvements are desired. They will also help reduce organic (and partially some inorganic) impurities from the water. It is possible to have combination a drinking water filter that in part reduce other impurities. Moulded carbon block filters will also reduce particulate matter.
Activated carbon in the main cannot effectively eliminate water hardness (which contributes to film on tea and coffee). It also only offers a limited or no improvement in the reduction of inorganic compounds for example; Aluminium, fluoride, nitrates etc.
Generally, a drinking water filter improves the taste of tap water.
For those people who wish to reduce all the impurities found in the water supply, water distillation or reverse osmosis water purifying systems are available.
Water distillation is a copy of nature’s own mechanism for water purification. Water is gently heated so that the water vapour is released. The vapour is then condensed back into purified water at the point of collection. Although distillation offers a dramatic reduction in water contaminates the process is slow. The water distillation equipment, however, not being plumbed in has the ability to be easily transported from location to location.
Water purification utilises reverse osmosis technology. This will give the benefits of the activated carbon filtration systems and that of distillation. Most systems available employ two activated carbon filters together with a semi permeable membrane. The membrane will assist in the effective reduction of inorganic impurities, which the carbon filter will not. Unlike the distillation systems the reverse osmosis system will provide a convenient supply of treated water to a separate tap.
Cost may vary depending on the system you choose and you individual specification, these are some guide prices.
Drinking water filter £25 to £195
Distillers from £399
Reverse Osmosis £249 to £700
