Why should I filter my water?
The water you drink is a combination of water collected from various sources including rain, groundwater, lakes, dams, desalination and many others. Chemicals such as chlorine are used to treat this water then it is transported to your home or workplace via pipes that can be more than 100 years old.
So, filtration will remove suspended particles in the water such as dirt, rust, asbestos fibres and other nasties as well as parasitic micro-organisms such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia to guarantee your family and workmates are enjoying the healthiest water available.
Another reason to filter your water is to reduce the effect of lime scale build up. Even in soft to moderately soft water, Calcium Carbonate – also known as CaCO³ - will begin to build up. As this build-up thickens, it will begin to increase the amount of energy required to heat the water. For example, a build-up of only 2.0mm will require an additional 15% of energy to heat the water in the boiler. The higher the build-up, the more energy it will take to heat the water and the more it will cost you in the long run.
