No matter where you live or the running water conditions in your city or state, it's usually a good decision to buy a filter for your home. Even where tap water is well treated and filtered by municipalities - and, thankfully, almost everywhere in developed countries - you can still reap many benefits from buying a good water filtration system for your home.
The under sink kitchen water filters work in a very simple way - they are placed under the sink (such as the kitchen sink) and the diverter valve diverts the cold water from the pipe to the filter before it reaches the sink faucet. The water flows through the filter and then out through the outlet valve, which flows out through a hole above the tank. Besides the standard faucet, the end of the outlet valve also has a separate faucet for filtering water, which is placed on the sink. That's it - now you can choose hot water, cold water and filtered cold water.
More precisely, what we describe is not only a under sink kitchen water filters, but also a "traditional water filter under the sink". And there is a kind of "simple under sink kitchen water filter"
The second type works a little differently - cold water is introduced into the filter, but once filtered, it goes back to the original valve and into the cold water tap. This means you don't need to drill an extra tap hole for the filtered water, but all your cold water will be filtered out. This may sound like a benefit, but it actually means that you will unnecessarily filter water that doesn't always need to be filtered. In other words, you need to change the filter cartridge more frequently.
Whether simple or traditional, the under sink kitchen water filters can bring many benefits to the family. So it's not surprising that they have become so popular in recent years. If you choose such a filter for your home, let's review all the benefits you can expect in my next page.
