Undercounter Water Filters

Updated: December 4, 2016.

Our tap water takes a long path before it is delivered to our faucets. The major sources of water are groundwater (wells) and rivers, lakes, streams (surface water.) These water sources are full of many contaminants and chemicals that are a result of natural and human activities. The water is treated and processed at municipal plants and then finally pumped to our homes through long underground pipes.

Water treatment plants add a bunch of chemicals to clear the water of harmful substances. For example, Chlorine is applied to water in order to kill bacteria and viruses such as Cholera. Of course Chlorine offers great health benefits by preventing diseases in our water supplies. On the other hand, the application of Chlorine to water creates new health problems. Chlorine reacts in water with other organic material to form tritrihalomethanes (THMs.) These are toxic and dangerous by products of Chlorinated water. In fact, tritrihalomethanes (THMs) is strongly linked with certain cancers, miscarriage, fetal malformations, and stillbirths.

Consequently you have Chlorine and its by products (THMs) dissolved in your tap water. The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) sets certain limits as to the maximum amounts of these chemicals allowed in water supplies. This means that these chemicals are found in water supplies at “safe levels.” However, you clearly don’t want to take any risks even if it’s considered “safe” to consume certain amounts of the chemicals. You know Chlorine and THMs are harmful to your health, and you should do something about it.

Undercounter Water Filters

The solution to having fresh, pure, and safe water is a water filter. The most economical water filtering solutions are Point Of Use systems. These are simply systems where a water filter is connected to a specific point such as a kitchen faucet, rather than the entire household water supply (which would be very expensive.) You probably want to have only a single water filter hooked up to your main supply of drinking and cooking water, the kitchen sink.

Under The Counter Water Filters

An excellent example of a Point Of Use system is an undercounter water filter. This type of water filter easily connects to a water supply line of a faucet, and provides filtered water through its own faucet or spout. Undercounter water filters are easy to install, compact, and convenient. These water filters are nicely tucked away under the counter, behind closed cabinets.

The most important feature of water filters is obviously their efficient in removing many contaminants and impurities from your water. Expect the latest and best technology from your undercounter water filters. The lifetime of undercounter water filters is at least six months, after which new filter cartridges must be replaced.
