Here is an under sink water filtration unit from the higher price range that will give you excellent value and plenty of functionality.
The Clearly Filtered under sink water filter is an overall compact option for every household. It is basically a 3-stage filtration system that will purify and cleanse your water.
The unit affects not only the clarity of your water but also the taste. This makes it excellent not only for cooking but also when it comes to preparing shakes and other beverages. The replacement filters can be bought straight from the manufacturer.
What does it Remove?
The Clearly Filtered unit will take care of more than 220 toxic chemicals and metals. All of these will be removed from your water. This includes fluoride. Very few filtration systems actually remove fluoride from your water – but this one does. Among the other contaminants that will be taken out of your water we can list:
- Pesticides & Herbicides
On top of it all, you will enjoy odorless water with improved taste. The way the chlorine and fluoride are removed from the water is by tiny magnets within the media. These magnets attract and filter out only certain contaminants.
The Contents of the Set
The installation of this unit is exceptionally simple as all you need to do is connect the water line of the filter to your cold water line under the sink. Some people may view this as a downside, but the unit doesn’t come with a bypass valve.
This means that if you want to bypass the filter, you can do that only by turning the hot water on. Beware that this also means that your hot water will not be filtered by this system.
A huge benefit of the product is that it can be installed horizontally too. This goes to show you how versatile the system is as it allows you to use tight spaces.
When it comes to changing the filters, the leak-proof filter heads will truly make it easy for you. This is because they feature shut-off valves. A slight knock on the unit here is the fact that there is no indication when the cartridge us due for replacement. There’s no light, no sound – nothing. You can tell only by the water pressure which will significantly decrease as the effectiveness of the filter expires.
The easy installation, however, has another advantage. You can easily move the unit from sink to sink. This is great when you want to rent out a home with or without the filtration system. No need to buy a separate faucet for this under sink filter. Also, no need to go get a plumber.
What to Expect
The life of each filter is approximately 12 months. If you use the filter frequently, you may have to replace it in 9 months. According to such logic, though, your filter may last more than 15 months.
The system is also fully certified and tested independently to EPA & NSF standards. Everything in this system has been made in America under strict supervision.
You are allowed to get a full refund of your purchase in case you don’t like the filter. Additionally, the manufacturer backs up their quality work with a lifetime guarantee. They have a dedicated customer service team for each of your water filtration queries.
