Water Filter
If your tap water supply tastes a little unpleasant or you are worried about all the extra chemicals there may be in there, then sooner or later your mind will turn to getting a water filter system. Your house should have access to clean and pure water – it’s a basic right. It can be hard to know where to start, with so many options available out there. It will help you make your decision if you find out a little more about the different choices.

 

 

 

Water Filter Jugs

Your first option is to buy a jug which has a water filter fitted to it. These produce high quality filtered water that is delicious to drink. However it is not without its drawbacks. The cartridges are very expensive to replace, and you have to make sure that you are organized enough to keep it topped up, otherwise you will find that every time you hanker after a cool glass of water, you will find it empty and be disappointed. If there are a lot of people living in the house then it’s just not going to be big enough to service the entire family. You’ll also need plenty of room in the fridge to keep it, and losing fridge space can get annoying.

 

A House Water Filter

Some houses are fitted with inbuilt water filtering systems which means that every time you pour yourself a glass of water from the tap, that water has been filtered already. This limitless supply really suits a lot of people and if you live in an area where the tap water is of poor quality then it is certainly your best choice. Not only will your drinking water be a better quality, but you will also be able to bath and shower in water that is not packed full of chemicals.

 

Water filters are not cheap to install, but once they are up and running you will just have the small cost of changing the chemical filter every ten years or so. Fitting the filter yourself isn’t really an option – it’s a specialist job that a trained professional will have to carry out.

 

How Do I Get One?

If you have decided that a house water filtering system is for you then your first port of call should be the internet. You will find plenty of local companies who can offer the service, so find a few you like and ask them to provide a quote. Talk to them about your specific needs and concerns, and do your own research too so that you are completely aware of all the different types and brands on the market. Spend some time comparing the quotes when you have them all to hand, and look for any hidden extras. Select the company you are the most happy with and book yourself in. You will be benefiting from a constant supply of clean and delicious water in no time at all.

 

House water filtering systems are definitely gaining in popularity as more and more people are deciding that they can no longer put up with sub-standard water in their homes.
