All producers of jugs and filtering bottles claim that filtered water is much tastier than bottled water. In their opinion, the water also has a much higher quality than bottled one. In addition, it can be consumed by both adults and small children. However, in order for the water to contain all its values and be tasty, there are a few important facts to keep in mind. The filter must be replaced every month. We must also remember that after replacing the filter, the first 2-3 jugs of filtered water are not qualify for drinking, because they may contain carbon particles from the filter.
Active carbon filters are most common on the market. Its task is to remove chlorine and its derivatives from water and to improve the color, taste and smell of poor quality tap water. More and more often other ingredients are added to the carbon, for example, to change the hardness of the water or its pH. As a result, filtered water leaves no scale on household appliances such as coffee makers or electric kettles. The Polish Dafi manufacturer offers filters enriched with magnesium, thanks to which we can provide our body with this valuable element.
Sometimes, quality of the water from the waterworks is so poor that the filter needs to be replaced more often than every month, but it doesn’t work the same on every time. If we want the filtered water to always be fresh, it should be consumed within 12 hours of the filtration process. Many manufacturers emphasize this fact. This is especially important if we place jug in a sunny place and algal blooms processes can begin. Therefore, the jug should stand in a shaded place, the water should be filtered regularly, and the whole device thoroughly washed after each filtering. Almost all filters available on our market are environmentally friendly, which means that we can put them into garbage.
