What are Filtered Water Taps?
Filter water taps create instant filtered cold water directly from your tap, with all impurities and bad tastes removed. They’re essentially bottled water on tap, and provide an easy way to filter your water at home without the need for a water filter jug.
Is Filtered Water Better than Tap Water?
The most common concern about tap water is that it can contain by-products from chlorine, including trihalomethanes (THM), which is a group of environmental pollutants. Water filter taps provide safe drinking water by removing impurities such as lead, copper and aluminium, whilst leaving in all the beneficial minerals.
These taps make everyday living that little bit easier and save you time and money as they remove the need of having to splash out on bottled water and filtered water jugs.
How Do Filtered Water Taps Work?
Most taps have an activated carbon filter that removes the impurities from your domestic cold water, thereby improving the taste of the water that comes out of your tap. Carbon filters remove organic contaminants, herbicides and even pesticides that have found their way into the water supply.
Carbon filtering is very effective in removing chemical compounds from water, and the phosphate beads in the filtering system reduce scale from hard water, prolonging the life of your tap.
