Water filtration can provide better tasting and better smelling drinking water throughout your property by removing sediments, bacteria and chemical contaminants.
Water filters use two different techniques to remove dirt. Physical filtration means straining water to remove larger impurities. Another method of filtering, chemical filtration, involves passing water through an active material that removes impurities chemically as they pass through.
There are two different points at which you can install them. First of all, you can install them at single points within the household, such as the kitchen or a bathroom. Or you can have a filter fitted before any water enters the property, so every point of water in the house comes out filtered.
If you have a large household and would like filtered water from more than one point, as you have two kitchens/utility rooms or an annex, then a whole house filter would be the right choice.
If all you do is use one tap for filtered drinking water, then you should think about installing a single point of use filter. This is a cheaper option but you can apply this to as many individual faucets as you want. When considering installing a filter you should think about your usage of filtered water and the benefits to you, however, we do recommend you go for a whole house filter.

There are a few styles of filter to think about when purchasing, this depends on what you want from your filter (i.e. taste of water, smell of water and hardness)
Simple Taste & Odour Whole House Water Filters – As their name implies, these whole house water filters are designed to target tap water taste and odour altering substances like chlorine. Besides chlorine, these filters may also remove sediments, and inhibit scale formation.
UV Whole House Water Filters – These types of whole house water filters use ultraviolet light to treat tap water or other water sources. UV water filters can be used on their own or in addition to a taste and odour whole house filter, or even in combination with point of use water filters.
High-Efficiency Whole House Water Filters – These types of whole house water filters are the ultimate in whole home water filtration. They are also the costliest compared to the other whole house filters we’ve discussed.
