Stop wasting money on bottled water or on those ineffective water filter pitchers. Instead, get yourself a compact countertop water filtration system from iFilters. This is a complete countertop system that comes in an easy-to-install package. Simply connect directly to your kitchen faucet, then start drinking healthy safe water.
I’m sure you’re wondering how effective is this filter? Let’s start with the fact the carbon filter inside is rated at 0.5-microns. To paint a picture in your mind, the average human hair is 150-microns. Lint, particles that are visible to the naked eye measure at 25-microns. If we go even smaller, let’s say between 1-5-microns, then you can expect bacteria, dust, and animal dander to fall within that size range. So that means, there are a lot of contaminants that won’t get through this filter.
One thing to consider when it comes to the carbon filter in this unit was specifically engineered to effectively reduce sediment, dirt, rust particles, scale particles, cysts, cryptosporidium, entamoeba, toxoplasma, organic chemicals, VOCs, pesticides, herbicides, chlorine, chlorine taste & odor. Most people don’t expect all those things to be floating around in their drinking water, but why take a chance? Even though the local municipal water provider has to meet EPA standards for water cleanliness, that doesn’t exactly mean that the water coming into your home will taste great.
As you know, when you drink water from the tap, you’ll definitely get a whiff of chlorine and possibly a bad taste. The chlorine is present because the water district uses it to sanitize the water in order to prevent any viruses or bacteria from surviving as it travels from the treatment plant to your home. But along the way, water could pick up contaminants such as sediment, bacteria, and foul odors.
This is where the countertop water filter becomes a benefit for the apartment dweller. In most cases, tenants are not allowed to install a reverse osmosis water filter, so having this countertop unit will make the most sense. The water that goes into it is filtered immediately, ready to drink or cook with. By utilizing this water filter, you’ll be saving at least $100 per year from not having to buy bottled water. Plus you’ll prevent a minimum of 167 bottles from ending up in a landfill per year by using refillable water bottles.
Lastly, as great as the countertop water filter is for kitchens, they are known to be used in other parts of the home. For example, we’ve had customers who have installed the filter in their bathroom so they can have access to clean drinking water within a few steps from their bed. Plus, it also makes it convenient for brushing teeth, water floss devices, or refilling clothes iron reservoirs, and humidifiers.
