Fresh Filtered Water on Tap

How to Choose the Right Water Filter Tap

Renovating your kitchen?

There’s a lot to think about when you decide to renovate or design your new kitchen.

WFA-new-kirchen-blogJust so many decisions to be made…sinks, splash backs, benchtops even down to choosing the right water filter tap!

Sounds simple enough. But sometimes the decisions you make when you design your new kitchen can affect your choice of water filtration system. Especially if a new water filter is an after thought!

Let’s say, you like the idea of a stone bench top with under mount sink….

Chances are, you won’t want to be drilling a hole in it for a dedicated water filter tap!  In that case an inline water filter system with your own choice of tap design may be better.

Fresh filtered water in your new kitchen is a must – if you want it to taste, look and smell better.  But choosing the correct water filter system for your family depends on a number of things…

Lady-drinks-water-with-baby-WFAWe’ve devised an easy guide to help you through the process…

…if you decide before you renovate, you can take your pick of the best water filter systems on offer.

Think About the Design & Look of Your New Kitchen

You may like the minimalist kitchen look and want to throw away on bench appliances like the kettle and water filter jug.  In that case, a three way mixer tap system which gives hot, cold and filtered water may be the go. This way you can choose to use filtered water only when you want it.

But if you want to go all out with tap designs. Perhaps you’ve ideas of browsing the brochures for chrome, stainless steel, square, curved, high spout or gooseneck taps…Then it’s got to be an inline water filter system.

Think About Your Lifestyle & How You’ll Use the New Kitchen

Do you entertain a lot or have extended family to visit on a regular basis?

If so, you may like to choose a hot/cold ambient filtered water dispenser to make instant hot drinks.  It’s cheaper and quicker than boiling a kettle and tastes better for that perfect cuppa.

At WFA we have four main water filtration systems which come with a choice of taps…

Choose the tap you want or use your existing one

A popular choice is to use your existing tap for all your filtered cold water. This means you can choose pretty much any tap design you like and tie it with your new kitchen design.

This inline water filtration system attaches under the sink to the main cold water supply. It’s a super simple DIY installation. The best news is that it means that you can do far more than just get a glass of water. The flow rate is fast so you’ll be able to use it for all your cold water kitchen needs.

Just think you can wash your veggies in it, cook with it and use it in your kettle for a great tasting cup of tea! Don’t forget your butler’s pantry too, make sure you have one fitted there for all your kitchen needs.

Declutter your benchtop with a Three-Way Mixer Tap

This is perfect for those households who want to declutter their kitchen bench top and like the choice of hot, cold or filtered water on demand all from one tap.

There are two levers attached to one tap, one for the hot/cold tap water and one for filtered, so you can choose when you want use filtered water.

With this system the faucet is modern is its design to fit most new kitchen styles.

Instant Hot Drinks on Demand

Perhaps you have a large family or entertain a lot?

WFA-friends-hot-drinksThis is the perfect solution for having hot, steaming filtered water direct from your tap. You can adjust the temperature and there is a child safety lock for peace of mind. Perfect for large families, entertaining or a small office environment.

This affordable system comes with a stylish two way mixer tap which suits a modern kitchen and provides filtered hot on one side and filtered ambient water on the other side.

Dedicated Filter Tap

You may like the traditional style water filter with dedicated slimline tap.

This is a small, separate slimline faucet which is for cold water only. Perfect if you want to keep your filtered water source separate and only using small amounts, mostly for drinking.

There’s a choice of two chrome ceramic disk filter taps – a gooseneck or square neck style. Again these filter taps will look great in any new kitchen.

Why limit yourself to just one water filter system in your kitchen?

If you love the taste of filtered water, you can now get a compact inline filter especially designed for the bathroom.

girl-drinks-water-in-bathroomNo more midnight thirsts, just grab a glass of great tasting water from the ensuite!
This inline filter also protects against limescale so your bathroom tap will last longer.

The beauty of this water filter is that you can use your existing tap or also choose any tap design you like here too…time to get those brochures out again.

Maybe the kitchen isn’t the only renovation happening this year!
