Filtered water shouldn’t cost the Earth, so save money and enjoy eco-friendly clean drinking water by investing in a fitted water filter system from Direct Water Filters.

Installing a filtered water system is a great investment. Not only are you providing protection and peace of mind with regards to your family’s health, but you’re also saving money when compared to purchasing bottled water.

However, if you’re still unsure on the benefits and advantages of a water filtration system, have you ever stopped to consider what’s inside the water in your taps?


You’re thirsty, so you go to the kitchen and pour yourself a refreshing glass of tap water. However, do you really know what’s in your tap water? Is it just H2O or is there something else added?

Generally speaking, chemicals such as liquefied chlorine, fluorosilicic acid, aluminium sulphate, calcium hydroxide, and sodium silicofluoride are routinely added to our water supply. However, this isn’t to say it’s not necessary to add these chemicals; after all it’s very important that water is treated and made safe to drink. That being said, key scientists are now providing evidence that long-term ingestion of chemicals used to treat tap water could be causing some major health concerns.

It isn’t just water treatment that’s in your tap water that you need to consider with regards to water purity and filtration. After all, water needs to travel to your house, which it often does through the use of pipes. Many of these underground pipes have been underground since the Victorian times; just think of all the undesirable things that could have contaminated those pipes over the decades.


Approximately 10% of the UK’s water supply is fluoridated, despite the fact that fluoridation of water is banned in all other European countries. The chemical fluoride is often found in toothpastes and mouthwashes and in small amounts it is very useful for oral hygiene. However, it is very important that you don’t swallow toothpaste or mouthwash because it’s actually more toxic than lead; it’s used in pesticides to kill insects and rats. With regards to fluoride in drinking water, “tens of millions of people throughout China and India suffer from serious crippling bone diseases from drinking water with elevated levels of fluoride” [source ]


So with the risks associated with drinking unfiltered tap water, what are the alternatives? On one hand, you could switch to bottled water, however in addition to the cost expensive it also causes significant damage to the environment through plastic pollution.

However, here at Direct Water Filters, we have a diverse range of water filtration products to choose from.

  • Whole House Water Filter Kits
    Water; we drink it, use it to brush our teeth and bathe, and we cook with it. If it isn’t filtered appropriately, the harmful chemicals used to treat the tap water can damage our appliances and could even be ingested be ourselves or our children. So how do you fix the problem? It’s simple; install a whole house water filter system to ensure your home receives clean and contaminant free water for your entire house.

  • Salt Free Water Softeners
    Traditional water softeners add salt into the water in order to help prevent hard-water build up. However, the addition of salt into drinking water can lead to unwanted health problems, with additional concern for those who suffer from cardiovascular disease and blood pressure related health problems. As such, for many people and businesses, salt-free anti-scale protection systems are a much more beneficial alternative.

  • Ultra Violet (UV) Systems
    As one of the most effective ways to kill harmful bacteria in your water supply, UV light is one of the safest, cleanest, and most easy-to-maintain methods of assuring that your water is bacteria free. Using UV light to kill micro-organisms in water is highly efficient. The system can destroy 99.99% of harmful organisms without adding chemicals or changing your water’s taste or odour.

  • Under Sink Drinking Water Kits (In Line)
    Our inline filter kits make use of a filter cartridge housing and replaceable filter, and their purpose is to be added into a mains cold water supply. The filter housing and cartridge are combined so they do not require a separate filter housing; the compact size makes them the ideal choice for where space is limited.
