There are a wide variety of mains water filter systems available in the UK.
A whole house water filter or mains water filter is plumbed in to the rising main where water enters your house. They provide you with filtered water in your kitchen and at other taps throughout your house should you want it; for example your bathroom or utility room.
Our whole house water filters are suitable for mains water supplies only. If you have a private water supply, your requirements will be different so please take a look at our Private Water filters.
The BEST one is always determined by what you want to filter out of your mains water.
Despite UK tap water being safe for drinking, cooking and bathing in; not all contaminants are able to be removed.
For example, sediment, chlorine, fluoridation and water hardness could be a concern for you.
Some questions you might want to ask yourself before investing in a mains water filter are:
What is it that you don't like about your water at the moment?
And, Is there anything specific that you want to filter out of your water?
You don't necessarily need to pay to have your water professionally tested, but can if you want to.
It could be as simple as just not liking the taste or smell of your water, which is pushing you to keep on filling your supermarket trolley with plastic bottles full of filtered water.
And then you start feeling guilty about adding to the worlds plastic pollution crisis. It's a no win situation for you.
If it is just the taste and smell we'd recommend you install our Moby or Doby mains water filter.
One of these would remove the chlorine for you which would improve the taste and smell of your water.
Or, you may be sick and tired of the limescale in your water and be looking for one of our mains water filters for hard water.
