Common questions about water filters

Having access to clean water is a human right. We all need water for drinking, cooking, bathing and hygiene. In developed countries, our tap water is fine for most of these jobs, but when it comes to drinking water, the situation isn’t quite so clear.

Why filter water?

Even in countries with well-established systems, water quality can vary drastically between regions, and even between time of year, impacting the purity and taste of drinking water. Like all major infrastructure, water management systems differ in age, materials and level of maintenance, meaning impurities and contaminants such as dirt, rust, and metals can affect our drinking water. Biological contaminants and parasitic micro-organisms can breed in our water systems, potentially causing serious human illness. Natural disasters such as floods and bushfires can also drastically affect water quality, compromising the health and safety of people and animals.
