Home kitchen water filters making tap water tastier

Some people are concerned with additives, such as chlorine and fluoride in their tap water, as well as impurities and water bourn germs. Yet buying bottled water all the time can be both expensive and inconvenient, and creates a lot of plastic waste. 

That's why more and more people are turning to home kitchen water filters to clean their water, either in the form of a water jug or as a fully built in system. A water filter can prevent the build up of limescale in your kettle too. 

Water filter jugs

Water filter jugs offer the simplest answer to home kitchen water filters. The lid of the jug is filled from the tap, and the water passes through a series of filters, leaving clean, pure water to flow into the jug below. One of the most popular available is a Brita water jug filter

When it comes to replacing the filters, you can choose either branded filters or save money with compatible filters that will also fit your brand name jug. 

Built in water filter systems

If you prefer the convenience of getting filtered water straight from the tap, you need to install a permanent water filter somewhere in the system. These can either be fitted to the main cold water tap in the kitchen or can come as part of your cold water dispenser on the front of your fridge. These fixed systems will also require replacement filters from time to time, although these will generally last longer than jug filters. 

What to look for

When buying replacement jug filters, make sure that they match the make and model number of your water jug or they may not fit, or may not fully filter your water. For built in systems, look for the WRAS Approval mark, even on compatible filters, as this is a sign of quality that is approved by all of the UK's water companies.
