Filtered water not only tastes great and prevents damage to your house, it also adds value to your home or investment property. Creating tasty, clean drinking water with bulky refillable water jugs and environmentally damaging plastic bottles is a thing of the past thanks to clever in-home filtration systems. Whether you need filtration for your entire home or just one room, there is a sleek, efficient filtration option to suit you.
Under sink water filters
Have you ever looked inside your kettle to see grit and grime caused by the nasties in your water? These layers of scale are caused by contaminants such as sediment, dirt, rust, chlorine, lead and parasites such as cryptosporidium & giardia. Every time you make a cup of coffee, or wash your fresh veggies, you ingest these impurities.
Cleverly hidden under your kitchen sink, under sink water filtration systems filter every drop from your kitchen water supply. Whether you wish to minimise the fluoride in your water or you need a system to suit a limited budget; these multi cylinder filtration systems are the perfect way to boost the value and enjoyment of water use in your kitchen.
Filtered water taps
Filtered, sparkling cold water can encourage you to stay hydrated, plus skip unhealthy beverages in favour of water. On your counter top, these taps look like a stylish faucet, but under the counter, a cleverly hidden sub micron integrated water filter is installed to filter every drop of the cold, warm and boiling water. For extra filtration, you can also install a twin fluoride filter kit if needed.
For those with modern tastes, installing filtered taps with cold, hot and boiling water complete with the option of carbonation is a must-do. You’ll never need to buy soda water again.
Entire home water filtration
Municipal water systems may supply drinkable water, but the chemicals and sediment in the water can often leave your home stained, your scalp and skin itchy, and your appliances damaged. To prevent damage to you, your family and your home, a filtration system for your entire home’s water supply can be installed. You can choose how many filtration stages you need, and select exactly what type of filtration you want such as chlorine removal, bacteria or virus removal, or high flow sediment removal. If you notice countless brown stains around areas of high water flow in your home such as under faucets, a whole home iron filer is recommended.
If your water supply stems from a bore or tank, you may wish to add a UV lamp as the final stage of filtration.
Counter water filters
In the modern age where water filtration can be so cleverly disguised, counter water filters may seem old fashioned, but if you have limited cupboard space they may work for you. Reverse osmosis bench top filters take your water through four stages of filtration, ending with a fifth stage which alkalises your water to restore it to a pH level your body prefers. These filters reduce viruses, bacteria, heavy metals, chlorine, chemicals, sediment, odour, colour rust and above all, bad taste.
If you prefer a more homely, organic look to your appliances; counter water filters are also available in handmade pottery designs. Their filtration efficiency is impeccable, yet they maintain the more rustic look of your kitchen if minimalistic design is not for you.
Water filtration can be designed to fit your home and your needs, depending on the level of filtration you need. Whether you’re maintaining your investment property, upgrading your home to prepare it for sale, or increasing the value of the home you live in, water filtration protects you and your home from nasty chemicals and bacteria.
