Tap water doesn’t always meet the requirements for the highest purity since increasing pollution and waste water pollution can contaminate it. Although the European Drinking Water Ordinance sets out threshold values for certain substances, pollution from heavy metals, hormones, nitrates, chlorine or even radioactive substances can nevertheless very often be documented in water. The water mains system also significantly influences the quality of the water, so that lead or copper ions as well as biological contaminations may get into the drinking water. Ever more health-conscious individuals are therefore relying on the use of modern water filters for the household, which treat and purify the tap water. Choosing the right water filter depends on a variety of factors: special iron or lime filters may be used both in detached houses and apartment buildings. Systems which work using the reverse osmosis process produce drinking water of the greatest purity right in the kitchen. In addition, drinking water can be purified using ion exchangers or through chemical disinfection. Our experts will be happy to help you choose the right water treatment system for your household.
