Clean water means a healthy life for your family. Unfortunately, we can’t always automatically trust the water that comes out of the tap. This is why it would be better to have a water filter installed in your home. However, which type of water filter should you choose? Here are some of the common filters available on the market today:
- Activated Carbon Filter. This type of filter works by having positively charged and absorbent carbon to attract any impurities to it. This can be easily installed on the countertop or under your sink and it mainly removes any bad taste and odors, which includes chlorine. They’re not as effective at removing chemical and other worse contaminants, but it should serve if you’re sure enough about the relative safety of your water source.
- Distiller. While not exactly a filter, it does help in cleaning your water. This is done by boiling the water and re-condensing the purified steam. This is usually installed under your sink and will manage to remove a lot of the contaminants in your water.
- Reverse Osmosis Filter. A semipermeable membrane is placed inside a pipe and high-water pressure forces the water to pass through filter, leaving the contaminants to be flushed away. This takes a lot of water though. They are usually installed under the sink and is effective enough to remove many contaminants.
