Why use a drinking filter

glass We all use water everyday, the population of England and Wales uses 7 billion litres of water each day, just for domestic use. That is approximately 125.5.litres per person per day.
This water usage  is broken down into the following :

  • 30% is flushed down the toilet.
  • 10% is used to wash the dishes.
  • 26% is used for personal hygiene.
  • 12% is used by washing machines.
  • 5% for the car and garden.
  • 6% is used for food preparation

It is widely accepted that adults should drink at least 1.75 litres (3 pints) of water a day for good health. The tap water supplied in our homes is perfectly safe to drink, however, the taste and appearance of tap water can sometimes cause concern.
As only 16% of daily water usage is used in food preparation and consumption, if the water companies were to attempt to provide tap water of the same quality as a water filter, it would result in a considerable increase in the cost of water to you the consumer.

Drinking Filters

A drinking filter will reduce the impurities present in the water, improving both the taste, odour and appearance.
The reverse osmosis water filter is one of the best on the market. This filter will make your water taste as good as bottled water and keep your kettle 100% clear of scale. We install and maintain these systems for you at very competitive prices.

Plumbed in drinking filters

Picture 6Great tasting water doesn’t just come in bottles.
Improve the taste and appearance of all drinks including – Tea – Coffee – Juice. Improve the colour and taste of vegetables. help retain nutritional content of vegetables. Improve your complexion and skin tone. Aid your digestive system by drinking 3 to 4 pints of water daily. Pot plants thrive on filtered water. Cut flowers retain their freshness for longer.

Reduce odour and taste from chlorine and other minerals
Much easier than constantly remembering to refill a water jug
Cheaper and more convenient than buying bottled water
Fits discreetly under the kitchen sink
Choice of systems to suit your pocket and lifestyle

Reverse Osmosis

A reverse osmosis unit provides high quality drinking water that can also be used in steam irons, batteries, humidifiers and in the developing of photography it can also be used for aquariums and plants. Reduce up to 95% of total dissolved solids (TDS).  With the cost and inconvenience of  bottled water you are unlikely to use it for all of your cooking and drinking water needs.
With an RO Clean, refreshing water is abundantly available therefore you do not need to ration its use, use it for all your drinks cold and hot, also infant formula, cooking,  pets and houseplants. Also, when you use your drinking water system it makes more water without you having to lift a finger, no more running out of good quality drinking water. It can be installed under your kitchen sink, in your basement or wherever is convenient for you, it can also be fitted to deliver water to your refrigerator ice maker and water dispenser.

There are 4 stages in the process

1 –   A sediment pre filter protects your systems membrane and other components by preventing small particles from entering the system.
2 – The RO module forces water through a semi permeable membrane significantly reducing heavy metals and compounds.
3 – A  storage tank stores your drinking water making it available on demand.
4 – A carbon post filter gives the final polish to your water by reducing unpleasant tastes and odours.

Typical impurities reduced by a Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water System are

*Ammonia  *Bicarbonate  *Bromide  *Barium  *Chlorine (residual)  *Chloride *Chromium (hex)  *Cysts   *Cadmium *Copper  *Chromium (Tri)  *Dissolved Solids  *Fluoride  *Lead  *Magnesium  *Nitrate  *Nitrite  *Radium 226/228  *Sulphate  *Sodium  *Sediment  *Selenium  *Tannin  *Zinc
(# Contaminants listed are not necessarily in your water)

Taps

Additional coloured taps

These are single use taps available for your plumbed in drinking filter and are fitted either on your kitchen sink or worktop adjacent to your kitchen sink, most sink colours can be matched.

Electro magnetic devices

Water softeners, should NOT be confused with the various electro-magnetic devices available which discourage calcium carbonates and other minerals to build up within water systems. It has been established that magnetic treatment systems can suppress scale deposit, but as yet no-one has been able to determine the physio-chemical fundamentals by which it has been achieved.
