Countertop Filters


Do you need the best water filter cartridges? Clean and safe drinking water is increasingly becoming scarce. The vast majority of water on the earth is saline. Only a limited number of water bodies provide freshwater across the globe. This is why the authorities have built water treatment plants throughout Australia. These plants filter the water and purify it. Thereafter, they supply the filtered water to various towns and cities via an extensive network of pipes. However, the risk of contamination can occur at any point as the treated water passes through these pipes. Therefore, installing a water filtration system in your home is unavoidable. These systems use an assortment of water filter cartridges for providing a supply of filtered water.


The Tell-Tale Signs that You Need to Replace Your Water Filter Cartridges

Water filter cartridges enable your filtration systems to perform more effectively for longer stretches of time. With the passage of time, impurities could accumulate in the cartridges. As a result, the cartridge might experience clogging issues. Or, the accumulation of impurities and sediments could affect the flow of water from the filter. This is why replacing the filter cartridge within the specified timelines is imperative.

Some of the indicators that your water filter cartridge is not functioning effectively include:

  • The filtered water will taste and smell different
  • The flow of water will gradually start slowing down and thereby, become more and more ineffective
  • The alarm system fitted on the filter will sound (if applicable)
  • The filtered water will feature tiny particles and,
  • The water filter starts making strained sounds which it never made previously
