Drinking water filter Kitchen tap filter systems are designed to improve the quality of drinking water by removing impurities, chemicals, odours and flavours. Filter systems can provide clean and safe drinking water straight from the tap, reducing the need to buy bottled water and at the same time reducing plastic waste.
There are different types of drinking water filter systems, the most common of which are
Activated carbon filters
These filters use activated carbon to remove odours, flavours and chemicals such as chlorine from water. They can also reduce certain contaminants and organic compounds.
Reverse osmosis filters
Reverse osmosis filters use a membrane that removes almost all water contaminants such as heavy metals, bacteria, viruses and chemicals. They provide very effective filtration, but may also remove some useful minerals from the water.
Ceramic filters use a ceramic material containing micropores to remove particles, bacteria and other micro-organisms from water. They can be a good option in places where bacteria are a major concern.
The characteristics and filtration performance of drinking water filters can vary between different manufacturers and models. It is important to choose the filter system that best suits your needs and to consider the source and quality of the water.
