Our water filter kits come with a choice of 5 filter taps. Alternatively you can opt to purchase a tap from this page to compliment one of our drinking water filters.
Installing a water filter tap is convenient, economical and environmentally friendly. They also look good in your kitchen!
They're convenient because you don't have to keep buying and carrying home expensive bottled water from the supermarket or remembering to fill up your jug filter. Yes, even the cheapest bottled water is more expensive than the water that comes out of your filter tap at home! Having a water filter tap in your kitchen means that you and your family have fantastic tasting water all year round.
They're economical. It's recommended that we should drink 2 litres of water a day as its crucial to our overall health and well being. That could prove expensive if you're purchashing bottled water. How many times have you bought expensive bottled water, drunk half of it and left the other half somewhere, such as your bag, back seat of your car or desk? And then when you do have a tidy up, you throw it out! That's not only a waste of water but its another plastic bottle that has to be thrown away or recycled.
If you live in a hard water area and choose to buy our hardness filter, the reduced limescale content of your filtered water will mean that your cookware, kettles and coffee makers won't get all furred up, which means they're more likely to last longer and run more efficiently.
Having a water filter tap is environmentally friendly. Just think of how many plastic bottles you won't have to buy and throw away. When you install a water filter tap this dramatically reduces the amount of household waste you accumulate. You can fill a hard wearing plastic bottle time after time with your own filtered water; doing your bit to save the planet!
You might save money on car fuel as filtering your own water may reduce the number of times you visit the supermarket. And, your refrigerator doesn't have to work hard to keep your bottled water cool thereby reducing household equipment running costs!
Are water filter taps difficult to install?
Yes, our water filter taps are easy to install. Each tap is delivered with fitting instructions and on each of our tap product pages you'll find an exploded diagram which gives dimensions and a clear picture of how all the component parts fit together, making installation even easier. Remember that we're just at the end of the telephone if you get stuck! We also sell replacement parts. If you need something that's not listed please call us and we'll try to find it for you.
Your water filter tap shouldn't take up any more room on your kitchen sink than a standard mixer tap. The water filter housing is usually installed under the sink and doesn't take up excessive amounts of space. You need to leave enough room to loosen the housing when you want to replace the filter cartridge.
Filtered water improves the taste of food and drinks.
When you cook with filtered water it can help improve the overall taste of whatever you're preparing. So, if you want better tasting vegetables, pasta and fish for example, install a water filter kit from Fountain-Filters. This is especially true if you live in a hard water area as increased levels of lime impact negatively on the taste of cooked food. The Pearl-H is the filter for you if this is the case.
You'll know whether or not you live in a hard water area as your cups of tea will have an ugly scum lying on top of them!
