Undercounter Water Filter
Of course, you do. Your family deserves it. But, you have to shop very carefully for under
counter water filters or you may spend more, while getting less protection. If you have
publicly treated water, then the presence of certain contaminants is pretty much
guaranteed. The most popular treatment method, among public providers, is chemical
disinfection to reduce the threat of waterborne illnesses. Scientists and environmentalists
debate the risk-benefit ratio of chemical disinfection, but since it's cheap and the modern
standard, it continues to be used, regardless of the risks. The most commonly used
chemical disinfectant is chlorine. So, you need an under counter water filter that reduces
chlorine by at least 99%. Visit this: undercounter water filter
Chlorine consumption causes digestive disorders and in children can produce anemia.
But, the greatest risk comes not from the chemical itself, but the byproducts that are
released when it meets with bacteria and other water dwelling life forms. One of the
byproducts is chloroform. Another is bromate. There at least 10 different disinfection
byproducts in all publicly treated water. Their levels are measured and reported as
TTHMs or total trihalomethanes. Under counter water filters should reduce THMs by at
least 99%, because consumption causes a wide range of illnesses, including cancer of
the rectum and bladder. The compounds become airborne when cooking, so for the
greatest protection, it is necessary to leave the purifier in the "on" position when gathering
water to cook with.
There are only two under counter water filters on
the market that reduce THMs by at least 99%. One
costs $680. The other costs $143.98, when
purchased direct from the manufacturer. You are
probably wondering what the difference is. The
more expensive under counter water filter includes
a reverse osmosis step. The other includes
submicron filtration, a carbon block and ion
exchange. In order to remove cysts, which are
resistant to chemical disinfection and may be present in any publicly treated supply, you
need either reverse osmosis or submicron filtration. Obviously, reverse osmosis costs
more. What are the benefits of reverse osmosis?
There are none. Under counter water filters that include submicron filtration provide the
same protection without removing minerals that may be present in your source. Reverse
osmosis removes all dissolved minerals. Through ion exchange, the less expensive under
counter water filter removes lead and other metallic particles, exchanging them for
mineral ions, such as potassium. This step improves the taste and smell, while balancing
mineral content and protecting you from the health hazards of lead consumption.
Reverse osmosis (RO) is a technique that is widely used for water filtration. The wh olehouse filtration system can be installed using this technique. The undercounter RO
systems can be used at a fairly affordable rate and it is more convenient and cost-effective
over bottled water. There are various undercounter models that utilize UV technology in
order to get rid of unwanted microparticles from water.
