Indoor Water Filters
Malaysia’s Health Ministry does its best to provide us with safe drinking water. However, with ever-increasing environmental pollution, it is becoming more difficult to effectively purify our water – making a very strong case for the use of indoor water filters.
Why Use Indoor Water Filters?
Recent research shows that tap water, in Malaysia, is contaminated with traces of chemical compounds, heavy metals, and various other impurities. And the aging ducts and pipelines that carry our water can accumulate rust, lead, viruses and bacteria, as well. All these pollutant compounds and elements should be eliminated and not be allowed to enter your property’s water supply. This cannot be fully accomplished at the point-of-entry (outdoor water filter) level, alone; thus the need for indoor water filters.
Once the outdoor water filtration system has done its job,indoor water filters – referred to as, point-of-use (POU) water filters, in the industry – help to filter out and remove the remaining finer sediments, such as sand, rust, and eventual water material that may still be present in your water. That is to say, indoor water filters help to guarantee the safety and purity of your tap water supply.
Chlorine – which is added, as a disinfectant, to the Malaysian water supply – is a prime reason for the use of indoor water filters. Although chlorine is reduced to safe levels, by means of outdoor water filters, any remaining chlorine should be removed from your water supply, before drinking. Indoor water filters are designed specifically to remove chlorine – and compounds called, trihalomethanes (a carcinogenic by-product of chlorination) – from the water supply.
For the safety of your property’s drinking water supply, you need a filtration barrier (such as the ultra membrane used in Blöndal’s indoor water filters) that will filter down to 0.01 micron in combination with a solid carbon block to successfully remove the broadest range of all possible contaminants from your water supply.
Prime Benefits Of Using Indoor Water Filters
The use of point-of-use (PoU) water filters (indoor water filters) – connected to a water source – provides clean, safe water for drinking and for all kitchen chores, such as rinsing foods, food preparation, and cooking. Indoor water filters also removes heavy metals, such as iron; improving the colour, smell, and taste of your water.
Point-of-Entry (PoE) water filters are connected after the JBA main pip, catering to all your household needs. Point-of-Use (PoU) water filters, connected to a single tap, supplied clean, safe water for your kitchen chores – drinking, cooking and washing.
Both are essential in supplying homes with clean, clear and chlorine-free water. An effective PoE removes sediment and chlorine for your family’s daily use and a PoU in the kitchen ensures that finer sediments including bacteria and viruses are eliminated completely at the point of drinking. Installing only a PoU in the kitchen is not sufficient as it is not designed to filter load of sediment, sand, rust, chlorine and other waste material that contaminates water.
Be cautious when choosing the right drinking water filter as wrong choice potentially risks your quality of water and health. Take note that a badly designed drinking water filter not only provides inadequate filtration but also traps contaminants. Consequently, organic matter decay further, polluting water quality while becoming breeding ground for bacteria and viruses. These compounds combined with free chlorine creates more Trihalomethanes (THM), a cancer causing component that destroys the wellbeing of you and your family.
