Water filtration

Under sink water filters are more efficient than ever as they produce fresh drinking water for the whole family to enjoy. With a quick and simple installation, you can enjoy fresh, filtered water straight from the tap. Under sink water filters also eliminate the amount of limescale that can build up over time, making the water free from impurities.

Choosing the right water filtration for your kitchen

Carbon Filters

Carbon filters

This filter works to remove larger particles, such as sediment and silt, from your water. Carbon filters work to absorb these particles so they’re eliminated from the water that comes out of your faucet. This ensures that you can enjoy your drinking water as it massively reduces the amount of chlorine and other contaminants.

Alkaline Ionizers

Alkaline ionizer

Using a process known as electrolysis, this filter uses electrically charged plates to separate water into two streams. One is alkaline and the other acidic. This process results in softer water as the acidity has been lowered, making this technology ideal for homes situated in areas with hard water.

UV Filters

UV filters

Perfect for homes that choose an ethical approach to living, ultraviolet radiation purifies your water without the use of chemicals or additional heat. As one of the newest technologies available on the market, these filters treat water by expertly destroying bacteria that can have detrimental effects to your health.

Reverse Osmosis

Reverse osmosis

Reverse Osmosis is an incredibly popular form of water filtration as it works by filtering out any impurities that can contaminate your water. This process effectively uses high pressure to force water molecules through the membrane, and directs the rejected water to pass through a different stream.

Infrared filters

Similar to alkaline filters, infrared filters use a technology which soften your water using  and light yo negatively charge the water. This making infrared filters the perfect solution for homes situated in hard water areas.

Hard water

Hard water is typically more common in cities or places where there is often hot weather or low rainfall. If you’re unsure, check your kettle for any white, chalky deposits as hard water contains two main elements: magnesium and calcium.

Soft water softeners

Water softeners treat magnesium and calcium by removing them before water runs through your system. This method neutralises the elements but it is important to note that they do not completely omit the hardness minerals from the water.

Counter top water filter

Salt based water softeners completely eliminate minerals, such as calcium and magnesium, before you turn on your faucet. This advantage means the build-up of lime-scales is omitted and you’ll notice that water based appliances in your kitchen will generally last longer too.
