Consumers are taking multiple steps in protecting their drinking water these days. From water pitchers with filters to home drinking water systems installed at the point-of-use, no one wants to deal with harmful drinking water contaminants known or unknown for that matter. Lead, chloroform, arsenic, nitrate, nitrite, radon, and E. coli bacteria are common in tap water. And bottled water is actually less regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency than municipal water supplies.

Some consumers are electing to install a faucet mount water filter. Each water filter has advantages and disadvantages. But how do you know which faucet mount water filter is the best? First, find one that will improve not only the taste of your water, but is also certified to remove the contaminants that are present in your particular water. Some come with electronic displays and are easier to use than others. Faucet-mounted filters let you switch between filtered and unfiltered water. They are affordable and simple to use, but as with any other product, there are some downsides as well.

Some of the least-effective models have slow water flow and they may not fit on all faucets. They may also get clogged if your family uses the filter often. A good rule of thumb is to fit the filter to your needs. If your family uses several gallons of water a day, faucet mounted filters may get clogged faster meaning more maintenance on your part. Claims vary, so some research is needed.

Even though faucet-mounted filters may seem like a great option, they still do not measure up to reverse osmosis (RO) drinking water systems  Although some have been proven to reduce contaminants, they still do not remove everything that our reverse osmosis drinking water systems do. Plus, a home drinking water system will last longer, making it a much more eco-friendly choice. Faucet mount filters are not permanent, leading to more plastic and cardboard waste upon replacement. When a filter needs replacing, it also stops doing as effective of a job. Our RO systems will turn your tap water into great-tasting, safe drinking water no matter your household demand. With contaminants reduced at the turn of the tap, you can enjoy the most cost-effective and filtration-effective water products.
