List of Residential Drinking Water Filters/ Treatment Systems

The water has been treated and is safe for consumption according to SYABAS. Installing water filters at home can further reduce the contaminants in your drinking water. Filtering system manufacturers may test their own products, but a water filter isn't certified to remove contaminants unless it has been tested by an independent organization like NSF International or the Water Quality Association. Both have databases that consumers can easily search to learn more about the reliability of specific models. WQA Product Certification Areas.

In my opinion, first of all you should look for a filtration system that remove dangerous contaminants in which the quality of the water can be tested and reported. Other additional features stated by the manufacturer to improve health such as alkaline water, energy conversion/ stabilizer to break down water molecules for better absorption, increase oxygen content, etc. are yet to be proven to be effective. Consumers also look for convenience for example a system with hot and cold water dispenser, UV technology to kill bacteria so you don't have to boil the water and maintenance. promotion ends 30 Sep 2017
