The Truth about Your Countertop & Faucet Water Filters

| 2

They DO give people a false sense of security...

Many people think that they are being fully protected by their basic 1-stage countertop and faucet filters. These simple carbon filtration systems do remove chlorine and some other contaminants but they also leave thousands of other harmful substances in the water. While these basic water filters are better than no filter at all, they do give people a false sense of security that their filtered water is safe from most water pollutants when in reality it is not. The majority of dangerous water contaminants will not be removed by any water treatment system that only uses carbon filtration.


The majority of faucet, countertop, and whole house water filters use only carbon filtration which does not properly treat the radioactive heavy metals, toxic industrial chemicals, and viral biological organisms that may be polluting our modern municipal water supplies and channels.

Reverse Osmosis DOES remove 90-99% of ALL these contaminants and many more...

A multi-stage reverse osmosis water filtration system will remove all of the above-listed contaminants and many more. While countertop filters can only remove impurities down to one micron in size, reverse osmosis systems will filter out contaminants down to .0001 microns to effectively remove up to 99% of all contaminants in the water including arsenic, fluoride, heavy metals and pharmaceutical drugs. Reverse osmosis systems remove the widest spectrum of contaminants compared to other types of filters available and is the preferred water purification system used by the United States military for producing drinking water. There is simply no comparison.


Reverse Osmosis produces MUCH Cleaner & Purer water than countertop and faucet water filters.

A good multi-stage reverse osmosis system is the best and maybe the only solution nowadays. You can install and maintain the filters yourself and can ensure and feel safe about the water which you and your family drink. Just make sure the brand you choose removes the most spectrum of contaminants. Usually a professional filtration system worth investing in is a 4 to 5 stage water purifier system. Each stage will remove certain types of contaminants, and all stages combined should protect you from just about every contaminant. A 5-stage reverse osmosis water filter with activated carbon pre-filters, is what we believe to be the most thorough and cost-effective way to purify drinking water. Such a system will pay for itself within half a year and can last 10-15 years with easy annual filter changes.
