A water filter removes impurities from your household water that you don't want in there. For e.g. chlorine, fluoride and many others. You can choose between a drinking water or mains water filter. One deals with just your drinking water and the other filters all the cold water coming into your house.
Water gives us the gift of life and even though it provides us with no calorific or nutritive value is essential to our survival.
Water is a vital component of our diet and most of us don't drink nearly enough, so try to up your water intake to at least 1.2 litres per day, which is around eight 150ml glasses. Tea, coffee and alcohol dehydrate the body, so we need to drink more water to compensate.
Water transports oxygen, nutrients, minerals, dissolved salts and trace elements around our body. It helps detoxify us by flushing out impurities. Water helps maintain our correct body temperature which is generally accepted to range from 36.1C to 37.2C. It helps dispose of body waste. Water alleviates constipation. It helps our kidneys function, which is why it's important to urinate or empty the bladder regularly to avoid infections and other illnesses. Water cures dehydration, so if you're feeling thirsty that's a good sign that you need to go and grab a glass of water. It helps our endocrine glands function. Water helps the body convert food into energy. It supports every organ in the body. You can't live without water. Well, you might survive for three to five days before your body shuts down.

The quality of your water can be impaired in several ways, with coliforms, yeasts, viruses, nitrates, lead, legionella; to name but a few. It is highly unlikely that your water will contain any of these substances, unless you live in a house with lead pipes! However, if you have a private water supply it's possible that your water may be impaired, which is why it's so important to have your water tested so that you can take preventative action to remove any risk of infection.

There are no taste and odour issues but there is much debate about the benefits to teeth and the toxic nature of the fluoride dosed.
However, Fluoride is only an issue if your water supplier doses it in to your water and if you do not want it.
Fluoridation is not currently done at a nationwide level but the situation keeps changing with more areas being fluoridated.
Firstly, do you have an issue with fluoride in your water?
Secondly, if you do have an issue, is your water fluoridated? Your local health authority or water supply company will be able to tell you - your doctor's surgery ought to be able to give you a contact phone number.
If you want to remove the fluoride, the Oyster Fluoride water filter is for you.
If your water is not fluoridated at the moment but becomes so, the cartridge for fluoride will fit the housings of the Pearl and Oyster models so you can always upgrade later if needs be.
