Is filtered water safe to drink?

Questioning the quality of filtered water may seem odd given that filtered water is often offered as a solution to improving the safety and quality of tap water and reducing or eliminating bottled water consumption. Depending on the type of water filter you have installed in your home, the filtration process that your tap water goes through is responsible for removing a significant proportion of the contaminants present in it.  But there can be a mismatch between the type of contaminants present in your tap water and the type of water filter system that you have. Because not all filters are created equal and not all filters remove every type of water contaminant, there can be differences in filtered water quality as well. So when can the quality of filtered water be less than what’s desirable? And is filtered water ever unsafe to drink?

Tell-tale signs that you may need a water filtering system

Without doubt, clean drinking water is indispensable in any household. Tap water isn’t inherently problematic, and it’s generally considered safe both for cooking and drinking. However, contaminants may find their way into your water supply through damaged or rusty pipes, and, unbeknownst to you, expose you to some harmful contaminants. Even if you don’t use tap water for drinking purposes, you’re probably using it for cooking or washing fruit and vegetables, or even for preparing coffee or tea. Of course, you could switch to bottled water and seemingly resolve your concerns about whether tap water is safe enough, or you could just as easily install a water filter system in your home and put any safety concerns to rest.

How to choose a countertop water filter?

Of all the different types of water filters, countertop water filters are the simplest to install and use. In fact, they are so simple to install that they are often referred to as no-installation water filters – simply attach the filter’s tube to your kitchen tap and you’re all set. Some countertop water filters are zero installation filters in the sense that they don’t have to be connected directly to a water supply. Gravity water filters are one example of filters that don’t fall into the category of pressure filters. Gravity water filters have an upper chamber that houses the filters and where unfiltered water is poured in for filtration. Other zero installation water filters like the Puricom ZIP countertop reverse osmosis system need electricity to operate, but they also don’t need to be connected to a water supply.
