Why Filter Water in Australia?

Filter water before you drink it your body will thank you. Most people are unaware of what is in their water and why they should filter water before drinking it. This include people who have the water supplied by the local authority or private water vendors. One way you take the guess work is use a quality filter to clean up your water.

A water filter can removes impurities from water by means of a fine physical barrier, a chemical process or a biological process to filter water.
Filters cleanse or filter water to different extents for purposes like irrigation, drinking water, aquariums, and swimming pools. At Filter Water we are concerned with helping people get access to clean water.

Typical Water will contain most if not all of the following impurities and containment’s at various levels depending on your location :

The are various option for removing these and really depends on the source of the water. As a minimum we recommend the use a basic 3 Stage Water Filter or a complete 5 Stage Reverse Osmosis System. 
Reverse osmosis (RO) is a water purification technology that uses a semipermeable membrane. RO can remove many types of molecules and ions from solutions and is used in both industrial processes and in producing potable (clean drinkable) water.  The result is that the solute is retained on the pressurized side of the membrane and the pure solvent is allowed to pass to the other side. To be “selective,” this membrane should not allow large molecules or ions through the pores (holes), but should allow smaller components of the solution (such as the solvent) to pass freely.

Filter Water with a cartridges not your kidneys
Even in Australia with ultimately if you do not filter your water you will end up being the human water filter instead.
