Normally used by those who travel extensively or who are renting properties, portable filters have a rubber tap connector which simply pushes onto the existing tap without the need for any plumbing.
For standard ½” Mixer Taps you can add our Tap Diverter as an optional extra. Before purchasing the Tap Diverter please ensure your tap has a removable ½” Aerator. If you are unsure please contact us on (01805) 804 202.
Standard (S) reduction/removal filters are a general purpose filter which use Granular Activated Carbon media. They are effective at reducing chemicals (including herbicides and pesticides) and chlorine to improve water taste and odour.
Activated carbon filters remove/reduce many volatile organic chemicals (VOC), as well as benzene, trihalomethane (THM) compounds, radon, solvents and hundreds of other man-made chemicals found in tap water. They are not designed for and not generally effective at removing metals or sediment.
The filters require regular replacement as will become exhausted after a time, which is dependent on the size/capacity of the filter unit.
