Filtering your water!

Recommended Posts

A few years ago we bought a water urn with filters. I grew up in NQ and the tap water was pretty good and never really gave it a second thought. Once I moved to SEQ I immediently noticed the water was horrid to drink. Probably not as bad as other places in Aus but still it wasn’t nice. I’m pretty sure my cordial intake tripled to help mask the taste as a counter measure lol. 

 

The water urn and filters were the best thing I’ve ever done to water. The taste is so much more pure and enjoyable. We also noticed it felt better when you drank it. 

 

Just thought I’d share a pic of a years worth of water sludged onto the first filter before and after it’s cleaned. The second filter is encased in plastic so I could really get a before an after shot of that one. 

 

Filter your water - it’s worth it.

Nice topic. Yeah, you've got to filter your water if your not on rainwater... We're on bore-water, its undrinkable without filtering. We usually go to local streams and springs to fill up our drinking water, but we invested in a great filter too. I very highly recommend this filter (https://www.psifilters.com.au/countertop-reverse-osmosis-systems/10070-4-stage-countertop-reverse-osmosis-system.html) and its very affordable for quality water.... For those in the city, it removes something like >95% of the chlorine and fluoride, amongst other things, and it re-mineralises the water...

Thanks for that link MountainGoat, We're already using a sediment filter where the water comes into the house and a double ceramic/carbon filter at kitchen sink, but where looking for something that can handle heavy metals better.
