Why to install an under sink water filtration system?

Under sink water filter systems cleanse your water by reducing rust and sediment, odours and chlorine, lead, bacteria, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), including pesticides like Lindane, and herbicides like Atrazine. An under sink filtration system in your home will provide you with great tasting safe drinking water.
Water filter systems under the sink are a popular choice because they provide good filtration and water flow, and they don’t clutter the countertop or sink area.The most effective under sink filters use a multi-stage filtration process, which may or may not require more than one filter casing depending on the system.
There are several types but the most common are reverse osmosis filters (aka ro filters), water distillers and in-line systems. They remove a lot of contaminants from your water but in some cases the distillers can remove too many minerals leaving the water void of everything, or as some call it “dead water”. RO water purification systems do not remove as many minerals from the water, leaving some healthy mineral, however an alkaline cartridge might be useful. Water distillers work by stripping particles with lower boiling points than water while reverse osmosis filters remove particles smaller than a water particle by a special ro membrane. RO systems can easily be connected to a 3-way kitchen faucet, in order to get fresh ro water from your kitchen tap.
