As well as the impact on the environment we all know that water is life, the human need to a supply of fresh water is essential. The quality of the water in the UK is some of the best in the world however it can be argued that most people would prefer the taste and smell of bottled water to normal tap water which is where filtering your water comes into its own.
By removing the need for bottled mineral water, every home with a water filter tap is doing their bit for the environment by reducing single use plastic consumption. The figures for single use plastic are astonishing and we all need to start taking responsibility for our own impact on the environment. The little things can really help to make a difference and these soon add up, especially if we all have the same focus and common interest. Switching from bottled water to a water filter tap will significantly reduce your own single use plastic consumption.Convert your existing tap
Water filter taps offer a more pleasant, neutral tasting drinking water directly ‘on tap’ than the standard cold water supply. They improve the taste, appearance, odour and effects of hard water, removing the chlorine at the same time as other unwanted impurities. Using a water filter tap also means filtered water is always available on demand.Convert your existing tap
Having filtered cold water on tap will hopefully encourage the consumption of more water. Along with the benefits of maintaining homeostasis by drinking your recommended daily intake of water, there are other benefits to consuming enough H²O. Some of these benefits are detoxification, skin hydration, nutrient absorption and weight loss. Why not fill a reusable water bottle each day directly from the tap and take it with you on your travels?Convert your existing tap
If bottled mineral water is a frequent purchase in your household, you can save considerable amounts each year by switching to a water filter tap.

The average cost of the recommended 2 litres of water per adult per day is 94p, or £343 a year, when you opt for bottled. Compare this to 2p a day or just £7.30 per year person for the same amount of tap water and the savings are instantly clear. Making the switch could help save 2,920 plastic water bottles each year too, resulting in far less harmful waste ending up in the environment.View Swich, the water filter system
Around £2bn a year is splashed out on bottled water, rather than simply taking it from the kitchen tap. While a litre of bottled water could set you back around £1, the same price will buy 10,000 litres of mains-fed water.View Swich, the water filter system
