Filtered Water: What Are the Key Benefits?

Filtered water is essential, from the taps we drink from to the high-volume industrial systems on which manufacturers and services depend.

Here are just some of the reasons why:

To stop the risk of water-related illnesses and diseases

Water is such an intrinsic part of our daily lives that many people never give a second thought to its quality or source. 

Are we right to take it for granted?

The water we use is subject to the filtration protocols put in place by suppliers. However, there are a wide range of other factors to consider, such as:

  • The quality of water pipes serving homes and premises (older lead piping is still a common issue)
  • The processes used to ‘treat’ the water we use and the presence of heavy metals
  • The potential risks of diseases such as Norovirus, Salmonella, Hepatitis A and E. Coli from unfiltered water

To attain the best pH levels

UK regulations state that water pH should be between 6.5 and 9.5; this wide range aims to consider factors such as local geology and other factors. 

Potable water with a pH value in these ranges is considered suitable for drinking. However, for industrial and manufacturing applications, low pH values can lead to metals from pipes, fittings and equipment corroding into the water supply itself.

Filtered water has a near-neutral pH value and carries a significant range of benefits. It tastes much better to drink, it is also far more effective for cleaning, and it takes much better care of appliances, equipment and plumbing.

It makes sense, financially and environmentally

Many of us prefer buying or supplying bottled water as a preferred alternative to treated tap water. This choice can have a negative impact financially and in terms of plastic use.

The low environmental impact of water filtration systems aligns perfectly with many organisations’ sustainability policies while providing a safer, higher quality product for their needs.
