Why You Should Have a Filtered Water Tap
Ever wondered why your tap water sometimes tastes or smells chemically?
Well that chemical smell is chlorine. Whilst chlorine is necessary in our water supply to disinfect the water, it can often taste or smell unpleasant. You can avoid this problem by filtering your tap water. Any carbon filter will remove around 99% of chlorine from your water, leaving you with great tasting and smelling drinking water.
No more bottled water – save space and money!
Having a filtered water tap is a long term and low cost investment. You can save both space and money that would have previously been taken up by purchasing and storing bottled water. Not only will it benefit you, but also the environment. The bottled water industry is deemed extremely harmful to the Earth, this is due to both the amount of oil needed during the bottling and transporting process, and the amount of un-recycled water bottles, which take hundreds of years to even start decomposing.
Do you live in an old house or building?
Whilst most has been replacement, some old properties still have lead piping, allowing lead to enter your water supply. To remove 98.7% of lead from your water, you can use a Doulton® under-sink filter system with an Doulton® Ultracarb Short Mount filter cartridge. If you don’t need to filter out heavy metals, the Supercarb version will do fine.
