As your local filtered water specialists, we are proud to bring you the best in drinking water solutions. We've been int he business since 1990, and we know what it means to sell filtered water solutions that are tried, tested, and dependable.
We cater to commercial and residential markets alike and, as a long standing and trusted water filtration specialist, our ability to customise solutions is unparalleled. Whether you're on mains treated water or fresh untreated tank water, we find the right filtration solution for you.
We can even provide a single drinking water tap as an all in one which dispenses not only filtered water, but normal hot and cold mains water, for washing, through a 3 in one mixer tap. Ideal for those who are renting or those who simply want a single tap solution all in one.
We offer filtered water taps, delivering any of the following combinations:
A reverse osmosis filter system and a conventional water system will both filter water of impurities, but they do it on very different scales.
Filters have a micron rating, which measures how fine the particles are that they can remove from your water. Most household filter systems have a rating of between 5 to 0.2 microns. A smaller number of microns in a filter means smaller particles are filtered out.
Anything lower than 0.2 microns in a conventional water filter system will start to seriously slow down the flow of your water. To get a lower micron filter, people can instead use a reverse osmosis filter system. These have a micron rating of as low as 0.0005.
Not necessarily, but we will almost always recommend installing a separate filter water tap. At the very least, a 3-in-1 mixer tap can accommodate mains hot and cold water and filtered water.
According to Australian regulatons, water filters need to be of a lower pressure than mains water to prevent damage. Running a water filter system off your mains tap will result in reduced water pressure. This will mean that it will take a while to fill up your sink, lengthening the washing up process.
Furthermore, if you are using filtered water for activities like washing dishes or watering plants that don't necessarily require filtered water, you will only shorten the life of your filters, meaning that they will need to be changed more frequently.
The water filters used in your home water filters systems are kept in a casting that is water-tight. If unused for a prolonged period of time, bacteria can grow in the filter. So, if you're going on holiday or are likely to be out of the home for any other reason for several days or weeks, we recommend that you remove the filter before you leave. Rinse it and store it in a clipseal bag in your fridge. When you return, run the filter under the tap for up to 10 minutes to keep it clear.
Water filters are made in countries all over the world. At The Water People, we tend to favour the consistency and quality of world leading manufacturers like the USA. Products coming from regions with tight manufacturing guidelines and regulations mean that they are certified for quality. All filters coming out of the United States adhere to these standards.
As the regulations in countries improve over time, so do their water filter products. At The Water People, we can recommend filters that meet exacting standards for quality and budget constraints as well. Talk to use about what you need in a water filter, and we will give you clear, unbiased advice.
Filters for filtered water taps are consumables, and need to be changed every few months. This timeframe will depend on how often they are used and the quality of local mains water. Home filters should be changed every 8 to 12 months, while filters in commercial settings should be changed every 4 to 6 months,
You don't have to. All filters on filtered water taps can be changed by the owner. It's a very easy process that can be learned from your supplier or via the internet.
Just be sure to turn off all the water before you begin changing the filters to prevent any leaks. When you are finished, ensure that every component is on nice and tight.
If you'd prefer to not do it yourself, we have an in-house service team that can assist in installing your new taps and changing filters.
Reverse osmosis permit only the smallest particles to permeate their membrane. If you wish to re-add healthy minerals to your water, you can add a mineralising filter to the tank to replace what is stripped out.
Fluoride is a divisive issues. It is not banned in Australian water systems. It also has the approval of the National Health and Medical Research Council, who state that it is an effective prevention method against tooth decay. However, if you'd like to remove fluoride from your drinking water, contact us and we'll help you get a system in place.
