Most water filters contain some type of carbon, and the best for drinking water is coconut carbon. It’s very effective at removing chlorine from water and gives it a crystal clean taste and smell, which is why this is the carbon we use in all our water filters. Hundreds of other contaminants such as limescale and heavy metals can also affect the taste of water, but don’t worry – we have filters to handle those too!
Tap water invariably contains hundreds of harmful contaminants, including lead, chlorine, trihalomethanes, bacteria, hormones and many others. These can be very detrimental to health, but the majority of these contaminants can be dealt most effectively with using systems such as reverse osmosis. At Finersystems we offer filters with different specifications at every price point – so you can be sure you’ll get the right filter, at the right price!
Making the switch to filtered water means you’ll be doing your bit to help the environment. Every year 38 billion water bottles end up in rivers, forests and oceans – and that’s just in the USA! Having a water filter system installed at home means you’ll never have to pay for plastic bottled water ever again. A reusable water bottle, together with a change of filter every six months, gives you unlimited fresh, filtered, quality water – it tastes better than the expensive bottled equivalent too!
Did you know, around 60% of all bottled water is just tap water re-bottled? According to a recent US study by EcoWatch, ‘64 percent of bottled water comes from municipal tap water sources’ – in other words, many people buying bottled water in the United States are unknowingly paying for water that’s otherwise free, or nearly free! The story’s no different in the UK or across the world – so even after the initial cost of buying a water filter, you could save hundreds of pounds a year.
