Fresh Filtered Water on Tap

How to Choose the Best Water Filter for Your Home

If you’re considering investing in a water filtration system…you’ll want to make sure that you choose the best water filter for your needs.
To help with the process, we’ve come up with five key questions to ask yourself…

  • How much money do I want to spend?
  • How much bench space do I have?
  • How much water pressure do I require? For example, do I need a fast flow rate because I’m using filtered water for other things, like washing vegetables?
  • What am I going to do with filtered water? Am I going to just drink it or use it for hot drinks and cooking?
  • The size of my family – How many people are going to use it?

Of course one of the cheapest and simplest water filter systems on the market is the water filter jug. It does the job but you are going to do very little else with it, other than use it for a glass of water.

Only want filtered water some of the time?WFA-filter-tap

The next step up is a dedicated water filter tap system.

This is the best water filter option if you only want to use filtered water some of the time.

A slimline tap sits near your kitchen mixer tap and you only use it when you want filtered water.

Perfect for a small family who really only drink filtered water.

If you don’t want a separate dedicated tap but still want the choice of filtered water only when you want it…

…then a 3 Way Mixer Tap system is slightly more expensive but a great option.three-way-mixer-tap-filter-system-1

One tap system provides hot, cold and filtered water on demand.

There’s a separate lever for filtered water and the water filter cartridge is installed under your kitchen bench.

A very neat solution for the minimalist, modern kitchen.
