To be able to stay healthy and conveniently hydrated, the human being must consume an average of between 1.5 and 2 liters of water per day. Therefore, an adult drinks about 60 liters of water per month and 720 liters of water per year. There is a lot, then, what you can save if instead of buying bottled water, you opt for the use of a water filter (in fact, in just two weeks without buying bottled water, you can amortize the cost of the product). There is a variety of brands and models in the market to select from.
Guarantee of Eliminating Polluting Elements
Even though, in most geographical locations, water that flows directly from the tap could be consumed without problems, it usually presents calcareous residues and a certain chlorine taste that is used in water treatment. Therefore, it is advisable to use a filter to purify the tap water and, thus, be able to drink it without traces of impurities. In general, this range of products guarantees the elimination, as a base, of 80% of polluting elements (pesticides and metal traces included).
Fill With Water & Wait
There is nothing simpler and more intuitive than using a water filter. You only have to fill it with tap water (taking care not to overflow the capacity) and wait for the filtering system to purify the water. This entails a relevant investment of time that varies according to each brand and model. The smaller products (1.5 and 3.5 liters) can be stored, for refrigeration, inside the refrigerator. Larger models (8.5 liters and more) should be used at room temperature, given their weight and dimensions.
Water Filter Capacity
A fundamental consideration when deciding on a specific product is the capacity of the filter in accordance with the number of people who will use it in your home, office or business. In this sense, jar filters average a capacity between 1.5 and 3.5 liters of water. Larger filters (8.5 liters and more, with a weight directly proportional to their capacity) are equipped with a practical dispenser in the form of a tap and an indicator of when to remove the filter.
When to Change The Filter
This range of products depends on a “filter” (activated carbon system) that must be removed and changed every so often that is measured either by elapsed time (a couple of months on average) or, more accurately, by the amount of purified water (100 liters on average). As always, each model has its own specifications in this regard.
Uses of Filtered Water
The consumption of water purification filter- the water that flows directly from the tap – has a more pleasant taste and smell, free of remnants of chlorine and other impurities. Some consumers indicate that they use filtered water to make coffee, cook or wash fruits and vegetables with excellent results in terms of a marked improvement in the taste of food.
