Filtering your water at home can benefit you and your family in many ways. It improves the pH levels in your water by removing harmful chemicals and contaminates which leads to healthier consumption, great taste and all-round effective hydration. Filtered water can also reduce corrosion in piping and build-up of limescale as well as preventing rust in appliances and sinks and bath tubs. It can also have your clothes feel cleaner and softer after each wash and help with preventing skin irritations. There are manty benefits for this but how many types of water filtration systems are out there, and which is the best for you?

There are three main types of water filtration and they are mechanical, chemical and biological. Each household has particular needs and there are many different ways to filter water in your home.

Alkaline

As well as removing harmful contaminants the alkaline water filtration system neutralizes the pH level of water making it much healthier for your body. It reduces the acidity in your bloodstream and also is more easily absorbed allowing better hydration.
Alkaline can also be known as an ionized water filter. It produces a chemical change in the water which separates water into alkaline and acidic. Alkaline is considered the most superior for its extra health benefits not to mention its softer flavour and ease on the body.

Whole House Water Filtration

A whole house water filtration system is the best system to look after you, your family and your home. It manages filtration of water through your entire house and is most effective at eliminating contaminants from water that can dry your skin and hair and impact the life span of your home appliances. These systems can effectively remove chlorine and odour as well as many other contaminates from your water. Benefits of these systems include softer water for your showers, no chlorine gas smell when you take a hot shower in winter and smoother skin, softer hair and less intake of chlorine. Ensure you receive filtered water at every valve in your home with a whole house water filter.

Reverse Osmosis

Reverse Osmosis is the best and most reliable form of water filtration for drinking water. It can successfully remove up to 99.99% of all contamination in water including heavy metals, fluoride, hardness, salts and other organic & inorganic substances.

Our Range of Undersink Reverse Osmosis Systems are the only RO units on the market in Australia that can effectively remove Chloramine due to the Chloramine removal Pre-Filter. The H1-27 is a top of the range 7 Stage Hydrogen Rich Reverse Osmosis System that has been designed and honed over a decade to produce the perfect drinking water to aid Hydration, combat illnesses and help the body recover and function as nature intended.

Hydrogen Rich Water has been heavily studied and tested in the USA as it is known to function as a powerful antioxidant which can help to prevent cell damage & inflammation, protect DNA and combat out of control cell growth as well as increase blood pH for people with metabolic acidosis. The H1-27 is an alkaline system meaning that the pH of the drinking water produced by the system will be between 8.5 – 9.0 which is regarded as the optimal pH for healthy drinking water.

As the system removes all chemicals and sanitisers from the water, an important stage is the FAR Infrared treatment. The FAR Emitting ceramic beads act in a similar way to Ultraviolet sanitation, they use infrared energy to keep the water free of bacteria and viruses and prolong the storage life of the filtered water.

FAR Infrared treatment goes hand-in hand with negative magnetic treatment which promotes chemical changes in the water to produce weak levels of peroxide which quickly react in the high alkaline water to produce water and an additional oxygen molecule which is where the increased dissolved oxygen content is introduced to the final stage drinking water.

Countertop

Countertop water filters or a point of use water filtration systems are simple yet effective. They are attached directly to the faucet and use filtration materials like carbon to remove impurities. They do not take long to install and are very cost effective. Cartridges have a lifespan of 6 months and upkeep is very minimal.

There are pro’s and cons to each method, and it can be confusing when given so many options. If you are looking at getting a water filtration system for your home but may need some help, please call our friendly team on 0421 572 008 and we will be more than happy to help!
