Water filter
« on: February 16, 2017, 02:51:29 AM »
Hello everyone,
 I am staying in a place where the water is contaminated. Till date, we have been using that water for all purposes. But now my kids are quite often becoming sick and their teeth are turning yellow. I think it is because of the fluoride content in water. So, I have decided to install a filter at my house. When I  went in search of it, I  came across lot many models of filters. From among the models, I liked T7 (B) - Water Solutions(http://www.bestbrandappliance.ca/en/catalog/product/262177-Strauss%20Water-T7-B) because I found it's specifications to be quite good. Has anyone used this model before?Which is the model that you are using? Shall I purchase it or do you have any other suggestion?
Thanks in advance.

I would first find out what is contaminating your water. Then I would research filters to see which one filters out what. Many filters are only for taste and not for removing contaminates. I don't see any information on the one you linked that says what it is actually filtering.

It may be worthwhile seeing if you can get the water tested. Probably would be worth it even if you have to pay for it yourself. It would be more expensive getting a filter and finding out it doesn't filter out what needs to be filtered.

My local water municipality is required by law to give you test results once a year via mail. You can drop into the office and pick up a copy free of charge anytime. Much cheaper than paying to get it tested. Of course, if the OP is talking about well water, that isn't an option.
