Access a range of premium water filters, designed for quality
Filtering water can be done through a number of techniques. Whether you choose to utilise a filter or not has a great impact on the overall quality of water you consume. Each specific design that is available on the market comes with varying degrees of effectiveness, with varying costs. Generally, the point of installing a water filter is to enhance the hygiene, taste and also aesthetics of the liquid itself.
Choosing what filter is best for your needs means knowing exactly the level of purity that you’re wanting to achieve. Are you looking to reduce contaminants in the water? Who is going to be using it? Essentially, the more money you choose to invest in a filter, the higher the purity.
Things to consider
When you are looking for a new filter, consider the following:
- Would a filter with a refillable bottle on the top be more efficient?
- Would a BFA unit (bottle filter) offer more convenience?
- Are you looking for an option that removes fluoride?
Carbon Block (CB) filters are designed to eliminate contaminants – such as tastes, sediments, chlorine, smells etc. These work through an established technology that allows absorption of these compounds to effectively remove them, as well as any additional harmful contaminants.
If the design is made out of AC – a highly porous material – has a large surface area, attracting chemical pollutants to it effectively. These are most useful for removing organic compounds.
UV (Ultra Violet) designs are for water coolers that are linked through to a main supply. These are designed to offer a method of eliminated biologically unsafe contaminants in the water, killing most of the bacteria and viruses that pass through the system. These, however, do not remove pollutants that are formed from chemicals (you need to use a CB filter for this).
TIP: After filtering water, you should always aim to consume it within a short time period.
Filters such as the RO Reverses Osmosis are designed to combat complex chemicals and reduce their presence within water. The success rate for this is approximately 98%, offering consumers an advantageous method of cleansing their drinking water. Additionally, water ionizers can be accessed to specifically improve your overall health (find more info on this in our FAQ section).
RO systems operate by pushing water up against a semi-permeable membrane, which is created to stop contaminants from gaining access. During this stage, lead and asbestos (and other contaminants) are removed. More than 70% of Australians are currently concerned about the health of their water, and choose to utilise systems such as these.
