Filtered water is a great alternative to tap water. Choosing a water filter for your home ensures your drinking water is free from any lingering natural or artificial impurities sometimes found in tap water. Here are some reasons why a water filter may be right for you.
Tap water is generally safe to drink in Australia and it is usually aesthetically pleasing when it comes to appearance, taste and odour. The Australian water authorities use settling, coagulation, filtering and disinfecting processes to ensure tap water is safe to drink for the average household. However the use of sufficient disinfectant to stop microorganisms regrowing in the water can travel through the pipe system to your home. Lingering disinfectant in tap water can have a slight odour and taste however this gradually dissipates after some time. For this reason, some people prefer to opt for a home water filtered system instead.
Another reason people choose a water filer over tap water is because it is more eco-friendly. A bottle of water has a relatively costly life cycle in regards to the amount of energy it requires – from sourcing the water, to producing the bottle then packaging, transporting and refrigerating it. Add in the fact that only 35% of plastic bottles are properly recycled, most bottles end up in landfill. With all this in mind, adding a water filter to your home can drastically reduce your energy footprint, not to mention ensure clean drinking water right at your fingertips.
