There may be things in your tap water that you are completely unaware of. Whether your water is supplied by a well system, or a municipality, there are likely things lurking in it that may not be optimal for your health. The way that many people adjust for the contaminants in their water is by supplying their home with bottled water, or a bottled water service. The problem with bottled water is it isn’t practical. No one wants to haul the water bottles around, they are horrible for the environment, and above all, they contain contaminants that are just as unhealthy for you like BPAs. So, what is the solution to your water woes?
There are some inexpensive water filtration systems on the market that can do a great job ridding your water of harmful contaminants at a price that won’t break your budget. The Tap Master Tap Master Jr F2 Counter Top Water Filtration System is one such unit that we reviewed. Coming in at under $100, it is a price that most people can easily afford, and if you can stand the look of it in your kitchen, it may be the solution to your drinking water problems.
This countertop unit is convenient and gives you the water purity that is essential for optimal health. It works close to most units that fit under the counter, but it is one that sits on the counter next to the faucet. It delivers the same quality, and if you can stand the eyesore, then it just may be perfect for you. It has a clean design that isn’t all that bad, and the convenience of being completely portable. If you are living in an apartment, or travel, that may be something that is very attractive to you. There obviously is no expense to install it and it can be removed at any time.
The heavy duty, chrome faucet, is a long reach unit so you can set it way back on the counter and still use it conveniently. The best part is that you need not change the filters more than every 3 months or so. The filters work for approximately 500 gallons, depending on the concentration of minerals in your water that need to be filtered through. The thing that amazed us most about this unit is the amount of contaminants that it is able to filter from the water. It not only takes care of the hard water minerals, it also works effectively on 93% of arsenic, fluoride, selenium and other hard water chemicals. Whats more, it works 98% effectively on fine particles such as TOCs, VOCs, chlorine and other contaminants that can alter the taste of your drinking water.
What are the disadvantages?
There is some question as to the amount of leakage that can result from the amount of aluminum in the filters. Although it effectively removes fluoride from the water, the aluminum may have trace amounts of contaminant leak. It is not NSP certified which means that there is no sound way to substantiate its claims, spare testing your own water.
What are the advantages?
This system does a excellent job at removing all the contaminants from your water, if it really follows through with what it claims. Although an eyesore in your kitchen, it is ideal for those who want something that is not permanent and you don’t have to pay for installation. The filters are also convenient to change which is alway a huge plus.
Although not the prettiest unit out there, it does a good job at purifying the water in your tap for safe drinking water. If you are to believe its claims, it is convenient and very cost effective to make your water more healthy for you and your family. At a price tag under $100 it literally just makes good cents. The filters are good for up to three months, and are not expensive, and easy to remove which are two additional pluses. Overall, this may be a water filtration system that is worthwhile for the money, and does a good job for those who aren’t looking for something permanent.
