Quality Water Filters 4 You Posting Page
Thursday, June 2, 2011
There are many types of water filters on the market today. Knowing what they are, what they can do, and cannot do, will help consumers make the best buying decision. In general, the types of water filters available today include:
Carafe Water Filters:
For some consumers, the carafe water filter is a great option. The better brands will remove lead and chloroform from the water and do so without being too slow. Other brands, however, are not so efficient and should be avoided.
The carafe type of water filter is fine for households with one or two people but they are not a good choice for larger households as they do not filter water fast enough to service a big household.
Faucet-Mounted Water Filters
These types of water filters are very popular today. They are easy to install, and depending on the type you purchase, they can remove a wide variety of contaminants from the incoming water. Many models will allow you to switch from filtered to unfiltered water, which is a bonus for most households as you do not need filtered water to, for instance, mop the floor.
Countertop Water Filters
Under-Sink Water Filters
Reverse-Osmosis Water Filters
This type of water filter requires a bit of maintenance, including membrane replacement. They are not as fast at filtering as other types of water filters, but they do filter better.
