Tap water filters are the cheapest solution for clean and purified water. They connect right to your standard kitchen tap and they usually have a switch, with which you can select standard tap water or filtered water.
Most of them have activated carbon filters that reduces chlorine, chloroform and a wide list of chemicals. These cartridges must be replaced every few months dependin on the brand and water quality.
One the many advantages these water filters have is that they are very compact and easily installed. They do require some free space aroung your kitchen tap though and are not recommended if you have very short kitchen tap. If you have an old style shower-tap, then you can't install this tap filter for sure. Your only solutions would be to install an under-sink water filter.
Tap water filters can't usually treat extremely bad water quality problems such as heavy metals, lead, nitrates or limescale. If you wish to treat chemicals like these, then you should consider buying an under-sink water filter or even a reverse osmosis water treatment system.
There are many brands in the market, so if you need helping in choosing the right one for your home, please don't hesitate to contact us, we'll be very happy to help you!
