Water Filtration


Would anyone like to weigh in on the idea of installing a dedicated faucet under sink filtration system? Now that I have decided on a one hole pull down kitchen faucet for my soon-to-be granite top, I still have time whether or not to have the installer drill an extra hole for a dedicated drinking faucet. I am just beginning to catch up on the literature with respect to this technology.

Have you had your water tested to see what's in it? You may need more treatement than just a filter, or maybe not - lots of things can be in the water that a filter won't remove. And if it tests OK, why pay for something you don't need?

A simple to find, install, service, an activated charcoal filter in most cases is all you need.
