When we’re given too many buying options and too much choice, we get choice fatigue. It isn’t uncommon to get sick of shopping around and just settle on a product when you have had enough of looking. If you are thinking about purchasing a water filter but you’re getting fed up with comparing different types for your home, don’t worry we’re here to help. Here are 10 reasons why you should get a countertop water filter over other choices. There are many great options available on the market that will suit your needs and your budget.
Better Tasting Water
We all like the taste of bottled water, the clean crisp taste is something that we all gravitate to, but as it is bottled it is bad for the environment. Having a countertop water filter gives you access to clean, crisp and safe water without the need to have to go out and buy it. You will always have access to it, day or night and you aren’t polluting the environment with plastic bottles! You will also reduce the amount of space taken up in your fridge, making more room for food and other important things.
You Can Take It With You To Your Next Property
If you are renting your current accommodation you might be concerned that you can’t fit a filtration system and then take it with you. That isn’t the case with countertop water filters, they are quick to install and even faster to uninstall, making sure that you will always be able to take it with you whatever property you go to.
A lot of water filtration systems can be very expensive and require a lot of upkeep. Thankfully, the countertop system is one of the most accessible on the market and this doesn’t mean that it doesn’t do its job well. Countertop systems are just as good at filtering your water as other systems, but you have the added benefit that they won’t break the bank when you set about buying one.
They Give You Safe Water
Reverse osmosis systems are some of the best systems for filtering water out there and you can have this amazing technology on your counter. If you live in an area where there is lead in your water system, you want to make sure that you are able to filtrate it properly so there is no risk to your family. Reverse osmosis systems are one of the best systems for picking up dangerous bacteria and led, so you can ensure that every glass of water you drink will be safe.
Reduced Running Costs
Because countertop filtration systems aren’t installed in the same way as other systems, there is less of a running cost to them. If they do go wrong, there is no plumbing that is affected by this and as it is on your counter you will easily be able to spot where the problem is. If you are considering a reverse osmosis system, the cost for the filters is also low and you only have to change them once every 12 months. Research the manufacture first to make sure that all filters can be bought in a bundle and changed at the same time.
You Can Purchase Water Filters That Match Your Need
We’ve previously mentioned that some water can have led in it, but there are areas where arsenic and pathogens are present. Contact your water provider and find out what type of filters you will need to give you the safest water for yourself and your family. You can then look for filters that will take these out of your water supply and give you fresh clean water.
You Can Get Countertop Units That Give You Hot Water
Kettles draw a huge amount of power when you are trying to make a quick cup of coffee or tea, they can be expensive and they burn out quickly, especially in hard water areas. You can get countertop filter systems that have a hot water tap as well as a cold water tap. This way you can always have access to clean hot water to make tea or coffee, without having to turn on the kettle.
Children Need Water
It sounds ridiculous to say it, but kids need to stay hydrated and you don’t want to risk them not having access to safe, clean water. You may also find that the novelty of it when it comes from a tap on the counter may actually increase how much they drink! With a countertop system, they will always be able to access clean and safe water in a safe manner.
There Are So Many Different Options!
I know we said that you might get choice fatigue, but once you have narrowed down the countertop choices, there are a few more decisions you need to make, but that is a good thing, we promise! Not only can you choose the colour and design, you can select what features you need, what type of filters and other add on’s that will make sure you always have access to cold, fresh water.
You Don’t Have To Have A Reverse Osmosis System
It may seem that RO systems are everywhere, but you don’t have to have one if you don’t want to. You can also get carbon filtration systems that rely on O2 activated charcoal to filter out your water. These are often quieter than RO systems as they don’t need as much pressure, but they will remove all the particles that you need them to!
When it comes to buying a countertop water filtration system there really are a lot of options available to you, however, they all benefit from being the same tool that will give you clean and safe water. All you need to do is figure out what type of filtration system you want and work out what features match your families and your needs best!
