how to choose the best style of water filter for me

With the number of chemicals added to our drinking water these days, home water filtration devices are becoming more of an investment for everyday Australians rather than a luxury for the rich and famous.

Here at My Water Filter, we provide quality products that we know have been tried and tested to stand the test of time. We want you to be consuming clean, chemical-free water every day with no hassles.

How To Choose A Water Filter

When you have decided to invest in your home water filter, we are happy to help you in any way we can. There is an extensive range of filtration styles available today, and the list below should help guide you in the right direction.

Bench Top Filters

A Benchtop Water Filter is fantastic for people renting, uni students, those in small units with a lack of under sink cupboard space and even singles and couples who move around often.

Bench Top water filters work in many different ways. There is a simple housing with a cartridge inside; there are Reverse Osmosis units, Gravity pottery units or stainless steel gravity units. All of these units remove water contaminants to varying degrees.

If you’re wondering how to choose a reverse osmosis system, see our Reverse Osmosis Buyers Guide.

Under Sink Water Filter

An Under Sink Water Filter is probably the most prefered filtration method of all. An Under Sink system is conveniently hidden away under the kitchen sink inside your cupboard, so no one even knows it is there. Accompanied by a dedicated tap for filtered water on the sink where you can fill your glass with fresh filtered water, water is always ready to go any time you need it.

Just like Benchtop units, Under Sink systems come in various sizes; Single Stage up to 6 or even 7 stages, Reverse Osmosis with and without Alkaline, and the list goes on.

It’s well worth your time having a quick chat to us when you decide to look for a water filter.

Whole House Water Filter

This is where we start to get serious.

The main aim of a Whole House Water Filtration device is to remove the chlorine, so you don’t have red eyes, dry hair, dry skin or skin irritations from your water. It also saves you from breathing in the chlorine gas. Once the water temperature hits 24 degrees, a poisonous gas is created, which is unavoidable when you are standing in the shower. Take your time when searching for a Whole House Water Filter as they are not all the same.

Shower Filter

With so many small dwellings and apartment buildings around today, a Shower Filter is becoming the next hot item. It’s mainly used when it is not possible or not suitable to install a larger Whole House unit.

We stock a range of Shower Filters. One of which is considered the best in the world, the Sprite High Output Shower Filter.

There is no need for you or your family members to keep wasting money on facial creams and products to hide or soothe the pimples and red skin.

Simply invest in a product to help avoid contact with chlorine and save your money.
