Why Filter your Water
Our tap water, while generally safe to drink, may not meet our expectations, particularly as to taste. Our nation's river, catchment and reservoir systems are under dire stress due to drought, climatic changes and alarming levels of salinity.
In the absence of national drinking water quality and safety standards, quality varies widely. While the water emanating from the treatment plants generally conforms to applicable quality guidelines, the water then passes through hundreds of kilometers of ageing pipes before it reaches the kitchen tap. Enroute to the home there are many factors that may impair the taste, smell, clarity or quality. So we can no longer take our drinking water for granted.
Contamination of groundwater can occur through industrial and agricultural chemicals and other environmental waste. The use of chlorine as a disinfectant not only causes a pungent taste and smell, but there is growing concern about the long-term health implications of the by-products, such as trihalomethanes, from this disinfection treatment.
Home filtration is no longer an indulgence - today it is a necessity. The products sold by Great Water Filters are the most technologically advanced systems. We want you and your family to have confidence that the water you drink is fresh and safe.
