Having a clean supply of water that you can bank on with each glass will go a long way towards helping to boost your immune system ahead of flu season, and in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. While water cannot help prevent the spread of viruses, it can help nourish your cells to give your body the best chance to fend off unwanted infection. Water filter systems are a great way to ensure that you are consuming clean, purified water at home, without running the risk of ingesting a harmful substance from drinking regular tap water. So which filter systems can you bank on this year? We’ve whittled it down to three of the best to make it easier for you to decide.
The Benefits of Having a Water Filter at Home
Many companies offer products with extensive water filtration methods, tailored to your individual needs at home. Each of these companies has a singular goal, which is to give consumers access to safe drinking water all the time. Filtered water also provides peace of mind that all the members of the family are consuming something that won’t be harmful to their health. A home water system, especially one which is easy to install and easier to maintain, will encourage all members of the family to drink more water, while also ensuring that the water being used across various functions in the home will be less likely to cause harm from unforeseen contamination from the traditional supply of water we’ve all grown used to using without question.
The Royal Berkley is a feisty little home filter system that has been designed to cater to medium sized families, equipped for travel, outdoor activities and even unforeseen emergencies. With a storage capacity of over 12 litres and having been constructed from stainless steel, this mechanism is built to deliver and to last. This system easily caters to up to 6 people per day, and can purify anywhere from 15 to 30 litres per hour depending on the filtration elements you go with. Expect to pay anywhere from R5000 to R7000 for this system, which is guaranteed to last you for years to come.
The Aquaphor RO-101S creates perfectly purified water directly from the main line within the house. This system relies on balancing the water with magnesium and calcium, delivering a clean glass or two with each use. The Aquaphor is easy to install and even easier to use, and will not require persistent maintenance to keep it going. From a size perspective, it may be a little bigger than some of the others on the list, but this does not affect the pricing. This filter system is affordable and a good entry-level choice if you’re struggling a little with cashflow but need an effective solution.
The Galtech Pro is known for being one of the most advanced filter systems on the market, largely because its manufacturer is always at the helm of innovation within the industry in order to provide a product that does the job better than its competitors. This system relies on maintaining the quality and correct pH of water all across the home, while vital minerals remain in the water, ready for you to consume. Fitting main pipes of all sizes, it doesn’t require electrical power and will not reduce the water pressure at home, which is why it’s considered one of the best on the market in 2021.
