Water Filters

To say that “Water is Life” is an understatement. Humans need water to survive. In fact, we can live on water alone, without food, rather than on food alone and without water. These days however, pollution has caused contamination of our water supplies. Unfiltered running water is not only unsafe to drink, it can even cause irritation to sensitive skin.

Thankfully, water filters are a dime a dozen in the market. There are too many that you eventually get confused on which one to pick! To help you understand water filters better, here’s a quick rundown on the what’s and the how’s of it all.

TYPES OF WATER FILTERS

  1. Activated Carbon Filters – This type of filter cleans water by filtering out larger particles like silt and sediment. The filter absorbs the sediment so they are no longer present in the water that comes out of the faucet.
  2. Infrared Filters – This system works on the hardness of water. It utilizes heat and light to charge the water negatively, making it softer.
  3. Alkaline/Water Ionizers – This almost works the same way as infrared filters, only that alkaline /water ionizers uses electrolysis by running the water over electrically charged plates that separate it into two streams. One stream is alkaline while the other is acidic. Alkaline water is kinder to the skin and is recommended for those with sensitive skin.
  4. UV Filters – One of the latest advancements in water filtration is the UV filter. It uses ultraviolet radiation to destroy harmful bacteria present in the water. Not only is this type of filter highly effective, it is also environmentally friendly since it does not need any chemicals or additional heat source to work.
  5. Reverse Osmosis – This type of filtration is one of the more popular types because it can remove almost all contaminants in the water, giving you an end product that is clean and also odour free. The more expensive types can filter out contaminants as tiny as .001 microns.

Water filters come in many forms. There are point-of-use filters that you typically install on faucets and showers. There are also portable water filters. These are very useful to hikers, people experiencing humanitarian emergencies and the military. Portable filters are lightweight and convenient to carry. Some even come in the simple form of a straw. These filters however should not be confused with disinfectant tablets that can actually kill dangerous viruses and bacteria in the water. The most that these filters can do is to remove contaminants like silt and sediment.

Another term that is used to refer to whole house water filtration is water polishing. It removes certain concentrations of dissolved contaminants and removes microscopic particles from the water.

    ;They were professional. They turned up on time, it took as
    long as they said it would, the cleanliness was fine and the
    job was done well. I fully intend on using them again.

    I had them take out and install some sinks and cooktops, as well as replace some old gas hoses and fittings.

  • Shannon Holmes - Sutherland

    ;Nothing was too difficult and
    I’m very satisfied! I’ve already
    recommended him to my Dad, and would
    have no hesitation using him again

    Ben helped me with a bathroom renovation and was helpful and easy-going. Also, when I asked him to do more he was very accommodating. He did the work, and he was honest about both the prices and how he’d go about everything.

  • Nicholas Ciraldo - Cronulla

    ;They were professional. They turned up on time,
    it took as long as they said it would, the cleanliness
    was fine and the job was done well.
    I fully intend on using them again.

    Ben’s service was very good; excellent actually! He got straight back to me when I made the call, which doesn’t always happen. He was on time and when finished, he vacuumed and took the rubbish and old fittings away.

    He was a very good communicator, was a pleasant young fellow and he came through with everything he said. I was quite impressed to be honest.

    I’d be happy to recommend him to anyone based on what he did at our place.

    I would strongly recommend Ben with a 5 out of 5.

  • Lynda Tesoriero - Cronulla

    ;He was great. He came when he said he would,
    even though it was late notice. He was pleasant
    and easy to get on with. He did the job without any fuss.

  • Janet Flood - Miranda

    ;I've been very, very pleased with him;
    that's why I got him back and will continue to.
    I found him very personable, very efficient,
    prompt, and he cleaned up after himself.

    Ben was recommended to me by a friend and over the past 6 months I have used him for a number of jobs, including toilet and cistern installations, leaking taps, replacing taps with mixer taps and also custom gas connection for a pottery kiln.

    He researched installation of the chimney flue to make sure he had the correct flashing for the purpose built metal shed.

    I have been extremely pleased with Ben’s work and found him very personable, efficient and reliable and would not hesitate to use him for any plumbing needs in the future.

  • Kerry Fyfe - Heathcote

    ; He's prompt, and when he says he's going to turn up, he does...
    He was very straight and honest too. He told me what the problems were,
    in layman's terms ... and then he got stuck in.
    .

    When Ben said he'd turn up, he did. The estimate was close to the final price, he went out of his way to make sure everything was cleaned up, and he even offered to go and get some grass to cover up a trench he had to dig.

    Ben was very straight and honest too. He explained the problems in layman's terms so I knew what was happening, then he got stuck in and did them straight away.

    I've used Ben for more than one job, and I'll definitely call him back again.
