If you want to remove foreign substances from all of your water, not just that that you use for drinking, you might be interested in a filter that can be installed beneath your sink. This is also a good solution if excessive sediment, heavy metal or bacterial contamination poses a real problem in your area. The first question to ask yourself is how should you go about choosing an under sink water filter for your home? The steps below will talk you through to process so you can make the best decision for your home.
Step 1: Research the many filters that are currently available to get an idea of the different makes, models, features and prices.

Step 2: Determine the degree of contamination that is likely to be present in your home, as this will provide you with a good idea of exactly what sort of water filter you require. If you think that the contamination might be severe, make sure that you contact a specialist for screening. This will help guide your decision and give you peace of mind knowing you’ve chosen the right product for your situation.
Step 3: Select a device that is appropriate for the contaminants and substances present in your water. Sediment, heavy metals and even pH problems can be dealt with using a standard model, whilst the presence of bacteria or nitrate may require something more advanced.
Step 4: Try to pick a filter that is quick and easy to change when the time comes, as this will ensure that you can do it yourself and won’t need to call in a professional (which could prove to be expensive). This will also lessen the time that you tap is out of order.
Step 5: Have the filter installed in your home; a professional will be happy to help. Remember that if you want to screen all of your water that you will need to have one of these devices installed beneath every sink and in every tap of your home, including the shower.
Don’t let yourself be talked into purchasing an under sink water filter that you do not need; there are plenty of manufacturers who will try to talk you into purchasing a device that protects against all sorts of contaminants, many of which aren’t even present in your water. By knowing exactly what you need, you can help to prevent this from happening.
