How to make a simple water filter with materials you can easily find.

Obtaining a water filter can be one of the best things you can do for your family. By removing contaminants from their drinking water, you will help your family stay healthy and enjoy the water more. Today's crazy world with pollutants and other threats to a clean environment requires that we take as much care as we possibly can with our precious drinking water.

Of course, there are many types of water filters that you can buy, but did you know that you can create a simple water filter yourself? It is a very simple process that just about anyone can perform.

First, you will have to cut a length of PVC pipe to about two to two and one half inches. In the end cap of the pipe, drill a small hole; you will probably need to use a power drill to cut a clean cut.

The whole you cut should be the same approximate size of the diameter hose you are going to inset in it.

Screw on the end cap of the PVC to the PVC pipe and seal it with silicone sealer, and then insert a vinyl hose into the opening you have made in the end cap and seal that with the sealer as well.

Next, use some material to use as a filter, such as a paper towel or a coffee filter, and fill it with carbon before you insert it into the PVC pipe. When you pour some water into the open side of the pipe, it will go through the filter with the carbon, then out the thinner vinyl tube into a container.

Voila! Quick, easy filtered water you can keep in the refrigerator to drink at any time. As mentioned, this is one of the simplest, cheapest filters there is. You can certainly buy more complicated ones if you prefer. In either case, you will have to be conscientious about changing the filtering material in your filter. You change the filter in your air cooler on a regular basis; this is the same concept.

Clean, pure water is on everyone's mind today and the best way to make sure that your family is drinking clean water is to purify it yourself. You can eliminate those contaminants before they get into that glass of water.

A New Water Filter is Worth More than a New Air Cooler

Choosing the right water filtering systeme from a good company is important. Here are few companies to choose from.

There are many companies to choose from if you have decided to install a water filter in your home. There are many good, reputable companies offering these products, so you have a wide array of great products from great companies to choose from. A little research on your part will get you the best deal around.

One of the best, and also one where you will always find the most competitive prices is the Home Water Purifiers and Filters Company. This company with the obvious sounding name carries a full selection of all of the popular systems for water filtration. They carry one of the most popular and effective, the point of use osmosis system. This multi stage system is the newest in sophisticated technology designed to produce clean, healthy water.

Many homeowners choose the full house system, as compared to the point of use ones, since the water is treated as it enters the home, and the flow rate is consequently much higher. It is like comparing a window air cooler to a whole air conditioning system. If the water supply to your home has a lot of sediment in it, this is really the ideal system for you.

The mechanics of these systems is made up of a filter cartridge enclosed within a housing. The cover of the housing has a spanner wrench opening for easy access to the filter. It is recommended that a plumber install these systems, although a knowledgeable homeowner can probably do it.

Every one of the water filter systems offered by Home Water Purifiers and Filters Company are NSF certified and are designed for easy installation and maintenance, high water flow and long lasting filters. This means that you will get a lot of value from the unit since it is inexpensive to install and keep in good working order.

A second company that is highly recommended is Lifesource Whole House Water Systems. This company has been in the business of water filters for generations, serving both the residential and commercial market with excellent products. Their systems are tested, certified by an industry group called the Water Quality Association and will give you the best quality system for your home.

Water filtration systems have become a standard fixture in most kitchens today, especially as more and more scientists and health professionals report that most if not all of our drinking water supplies are contaminated with human-made pollutants, including not just municipal systems, but wells, lakes, rives, and glaciers. Unfortunately, bottled water has been shown to have its own host of problems, including serious health and environmental effects. However, while a good water filtration system is the best way to ensure healthy and safe drinking water, it's not enough to install just any filter in your home. Though the purpose of any water filtration system is to improve the quality and taste of drinking water, there is a wide range of filters available, each with varying costs and effectiveness. The process of planning a kitchen renovation is a perfect time to consider the different water filter options. Some of the most popular filters are explained below to help you choose the best water filter for your home.

Reverse Osmosis
Reverse osmosis is one of the most effective filtration methods available today. Even though the process has been known for over 100 years, it wasn't until the 1950s that the U.S. government developed it as a way for the Marines to desalinate water to make it drinkable. By way of brief explanation, "regular" osmosis occurs when molecules pass through a permeable membrane to equalize the concentration of molecules on both sides. As its name implies, reverse osmosis is when the opposite occurs. Instead of equalizing the concentration of substances on both sides of the membrane, water pressure pushes pure water on one side of a membrane, leaving a concentration of pollutants on the other.

Reverse osmosis typically also employs two carbon filters and/or other pre-filters, which work to remove a wide range of dangerous contaminants, including lead, mercury, and arsenic. Reverse osmosis is also effective at removing virtually all pharmaceutical drugs, coliform bacteria, E. coli, percolate, VOCs, viruses, fluoride, chlorine, chloramines, herbicides, pesticides, cryptosporidium, THMs, and MTBEs. In fact, while typical faucet or counter top filters are 1 stage filters, meaning they have only 1 basic carbon filter, reverse osmosis systems typically offer a 5 stage filtration system. Furthermore, while countertop filters have a 1-5 micron rating, which means contaminates smaller than 1 micron (such as asbestos, insecticides, may not be filter out), a reverse osmosis filter typically holds a micron rating of.0001. While reverse osmosis systems can cost more upfront, their filters only need to be replaced once a year, whereas counter top filters need replacing every couple of months.

Although reverse osmosis effectively removes an impressive array of unhealthy contaminants, it can also remove important minerals that contribute to taste and health of water, including magnesium, calcium, and potassium. Some researchers suggest these important minerals are also found in common foods and are therefore not needed in drinking water. Other health professionals, however, report that long-term intake of de-mineralized water can be unhealthy and can lead to mineral deficiency and/or an unhealthy level of acidity in the body. Additionally, reverse osmosis generally requires between two to three gallons of water to produce one gallon of purified water, which some experts consider wasteful.

Other Popular Water Filters
Other popular filters include water filter pitchers, which are very easy to use and have a low initial cost. Water pitcher filters typically can reduce lead, copper, chlorine, and chlorine by-products. However, while any filter is better than no filter, pitcher filters are probably the least effective filters for their cost, especially considering that filters will need to be replaced every few months. Some pitcher filters may also be slow and prone to clog. Because pitcher filters have such a short life, they may not be practical for a family of four or more who might consume a couple of gallons of water a day.

Filter faucets or filters installed directly on the faucets are also popular because, like pitcher filters, they are very easy to use. Filter faucets are usually easily placed onto the head of a faucet, and they conveniently allow a person to switch from filtered to unfiltered water. Most filter faucets effectively remove lead, pesticides, sediments, and chlorine. However, because they typically use a similar type of filter as a water pitcher, the filter needs replacing often and filtering can be slow.

Another popular type of filter are counter-top water filters, which hook directly to the faucet after the aerator is removed. Counter-top filters provide a level of filtration higher than a water pitcher or filter faucet because it uses a combination of carbon filters and other filters. Counter-top filters are also less likely to clog than a pitcher filter or a filter faucet. They also allow a large amount of water to be filtered without having to alter any plumbing.

Similar to counter-top water filter, under sink filters can filter large amounts of water. However, unlike counter top filters, they don't take up valuable counter space and instead attach to pipes under the sink. They are also typically more effective than pitcher types of water filters because under sink filters offer a two-step filtering process. However, under sink filters require modification to the plumbing (sometimes by a professional) and drilling a hole through the sink or countertop for the dispenser, which may mean longer installation time than other filters. They also take up room under the sink.

Kitchen renovation can be an exciting and creative time. As you consider which type of water filtration system would work best in your kitchen keep in the mind the following tips. First, you may want to either have your water tested or you may want to refer to your local annual quality report to ensure your water filter is removing contaminants specific to your drinking water supply. Second, your water filter should be certified by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF), and, third, to ensure the life and quality of your filter, your filter needs to be maintained according to manufacture recommendations.
