How does it work?
Most under-sink kits use a carbon-based filter, primarily to remove chlorine and sediment from the water. Chlorine is the most commonly-targeted contaminant as water companies add it to the water to disinfect it as it gets cleaned. Chlorine alters the taste and odour of water, giving it a distinctive chemical taste.
Carbon uses adsorption to remove chlorine from the water, and all our drinking water filters use coconut carbon to leave fresh tasting water. Other contaminants such as bacteria, lead, mercury, limescale, chloramine and THMs can also be removed by an under-sink filter – not only do they affect the taste of your water, they can also be a potential health risk in the case of old lead piping, for example. We have specific filters to deal with all these contaminants and more.
