An under sink water filter (otherwise called under counter filter) combines the power of larger filters with compactness.
As more people become health conscious, they want to ensure that their household water supply is as clean and as healthy as possible. An undersink water filter can help provide that assurance.
Sure your water supplier and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) does a good job ensuring that there are minimal amounts of water contaminants in your drinking water.
However, your municipal water treatment cannot remove 100% of all contaminants; hence, your tap water will contain some amount of chemicals.
Not only that; when your tap water pass through your household plumbing, it will pick up dirt, lead and other elements you don’t want in your tap water. In fact, many studies have linked drinking water contaminants with the increased incidence of cancer and immune deficiencies.
This is why it is so essential to have a drinking water filtration system installed in your home. Since “water is life,” you and your family would want to drink clean, healthy water daily. An under counter water filter system provides this at reasonable cost and in a convenient fashion.
With the filter cartridge costing around $50 and capable of filtering around 500 gallons of water, your cost for getting clean, healthy water in your home is around 10 cents/gallon. Try buying bottled water for that price.
It is convenient because unlike other types of home filtration systems, it is not bulky. It won’t clog up your kitchen counter because it is installed under the counter or sink. Installation is relatively easy too.
