Point of use purifiers

For the purification of municipal drinking water supplies, point of use filters are the most cost effective system available, costing a fraction of a cent to purify a litre of water.

 

This system protects end point fixtures , including separate drinking faucet, coffee machine, fridges and others.

 

Point of use filters actively remove suspended particles, taste and odour, chlorine, bacteria and viruses and improves the clarity of your water. Point of use water filters can be purchased in a number of configurations depending on your home plumbing and volume of water required each day and your budget.

 

Available as above and below counter configurations.

Important criteria to consider when selecting a home water filter

 

  • Performance – does the water filter do an exceptional job at removing both living contaminants (bacteria and viruses) and non-living contaminants (toxic metals like lead and copper).
  • Affordability – What’s the up the front cost of the unit – How much are replacement filters – What’s the total cost of ownership (price per liter of filtered water).
  • Quality – Is the unit durable, and is it backed by a guarantee.

 

There is only so much that a municipal water filtration system can do. They protect us from diseases like typhoid. They remove mud, dirt, raw sewage and other more offensive foreign objects like dead animals that fall into reservoirs and lakes. They remove heavy metals, rocks and a lot of minerals. They test the water to make sure that the level of contaminants is not toxic.

Health risks found in drinking water

 

  • Human Feaces
  • Chlorine
  • Rust and Sediment
  • Prescription Drugs
  • Chemicals / Farm Run Off / Corporate Waste

 

What you can do to make sure your drinking water is safe

It’s almost impossible to remove 100% of every possible type of contaminant from city water, but by using a home water filtration system you can greatly improve upon the quality of the water you consume.

Most public water works use chemicals to kill bacteria and to disinfect. Chlorine is most commonly used. The chemical disinfection process releases byproducts into drinking water that are hazardous to a person’s health. In the case of chlorine, the byproducts are referred to as THMs. They are known as carcinogens which mean they cause cancer. Environmental Protection Agency standards limit the THM content to 80 parts per billion. Beyond that level, THMs are considered toxic and can cause nerve damage and other health conditions. The public water filtration system cannot remove the by-products. They can only test the water to see if the level is too high.

 

That brings us to the second problem. Just because it is tested by our public officials doesn’t always mean its safe. The “safe” requirement does not take several things into account. The toxic level is aggregated for an adult that weighs 175 pounds, so if you weigh less, there is a greater threat. Tests are performed before the water enters the pipes that lead to your home, so the concentration of the byproducts could be higher by the time it reaches you.
