You are right, the tap water in Australia is usually good and meets the drinking water standard. Nevertheless, there are many good reasons to filter your water.

A first important step towards clean drinking water is the treatment of the water by the waterworks. The cleaned water then lays a long way through some old water pipe systems and reservoirs back to your faucet. Do you know which substances it absorbs in this way? Old pipes may still contain lead and asbestos, and there are always reports of bacterially contaminated water. The residents often have to boil the water for weeks. The water filters we install remove almost 100% of bacteria, viruses and pollutants from the water. With our water filter in your house, you have control over your drinking water quality.

Pure water is not only healthy; it also tastes good! The fine aroma of tea and coffee comes best with the purest water. Even when cooking, the flavours are better preserved. Why buy expensive gourmet water when the source can be much cheaper in-house?

To select the best filtering formula for tap water, several criteria must be taken into account in your reflection. Daily needs, analysis and composition of water, flow in housing: all these parameters that will direct you to a suitable solution (filtration, reverse osmosis, UV water treatment).

  • Water filter systems
  • Reverse osmosis water purification systems
  • Repair of existing water filters

We offer installation of water filter systems for many applications:

  • Steamer ovens
  • Dishwashers
  • Washing Machines
  • Ice Machines
  • Taps

Before going into detail, it is imperative to understand that the installation of a water filtration system does not change the fact that water is declared safe or not. The filtration of which we are going to speak acts on parameters which are not representative to determine if a water will be able to be consumed or not. Let’s look at the different cases where you can install a water filtration.

Filtration of drinking water

That this water comes from the public network distribution, straight to your tap, you may need to install a water filter to improve its quality. This can be for your own consumption or to preserve your appliance or heating system. The most common is to use the filtration system to eliminate (or at least limit) various potential contaminants and limestone. All deposits can be trapped by this principle provided that the correct filter is used.

Rainwater filtration

Rainwater is great to use since it is also environmentally friendly, but when rainwater is unfiltered, it can cause problems for both your health and the plumbing throughout your home or business. That is why we offer high-quality rainwater filtration systems for both residential and commercial applications.

Activated carbon filters

Advanced water filtration for your home. Designed to remove or reduce the presence of the various chemicals in water, activated carbon is also able to reduce turbidity to some extent, as well as the rate of some heavy metals. If you find that the water in your faucet tastes like chlorine, an activated carbon filter is the solution for a neutral-tasting water.
