What are Filter Taps?

Filter taps are modern systems, used to remove impurities from water whilst leaving beneficial minerals in.

Put simply, filter taps get rid of any nasties in your drinking water leaving it clean and fresh for you to drink. 

Why Get a Filter Tap?

A filter tap removes contaminants from your water. These include:

  • Chlorine
  • Disinfection byproducts 
  • Heavy metals like mercury, lead and arsenic

But, a water filter tap cleverly is able to retain the beneficial minerals to human health. Minerals such as magnesium, fluoride, calcium and zinc are kept in the water for your benefit. 

Why is Filter Water Better than Tap Water?

Short answer, yes. It’s known that filtered water tastes better than tap water. Not only does it taste and smell better though, but it’s also known to have more health benefits.

For the purest, freshest-tasting water, we’d always recommend you choose a filter tap.

How Do Filter Taps Work?

The majority of filter taps use a carbon filter to draw out the impurities from the water.

The method of carbon filtering is known to be highly effective. It removes organic contaminants, herbicides and even pesticides in your water stream.

Should I get a Filter Jug or a Filter Tap?

Water filter jugs are a good short-term solution to filtration. However, in the long run, a water filter tap is far more cost-effective.

A filter tap is less hassle too. The filter only needs to be replaced once a year whereas a jug needs a new filter every 6 months.

Filter Taps for Your Home 

Filter taps are a great addition to the modern kitchen. You’ll be able to drink the cleanest water with a tap that suits your design. 

Design shouldn’t be compromised for a quality appliance and it doesn’t have to be, with modern filter taps.
