Many water filter systems for drinking water treatment in private households now represent a large market segment - so large that the consumer's overview is beginning to disappear. We would therefore like to provide you with a short and concise overview of the different product variants on this page.

On the other hand, water filter systems can be differentiated according to the filter technology used.
Here are first of all Activated carbon water filter to name: A coal bed with a specifically enlarged surface is passed by the water flowing through it and adsorbs its dissolved pollutants. This system is comparatively inexpensive, removes all major impurities and chemical contamination while leaving healthy minerals in the water untouched.
KDF filters are based on metal alloys (usually copper or zinc) and trigger redox reactions when they come into contact with water, converting harmful elements into harmless substances. They effectively remove inorganic foreign substances such as chlorine or heavy metals, but not organic substances. Finally there are still reverse osmosis systems worth mentioning, which use water pressure alone to force H2O molecules through a membrane that retains pollutants. The reverse osmosis process reliably removes salts, lime and other undesirable substances from the water, but healthy minerals are also lost in the process.
