Frequently Asked Questions:
1. Why do I need a water filter system?
The water we receive at home undergoes a complex journey through kilometers of aging pipelines, encountering various factors that impact its taste, smell, and particle content. Prior to reaching us, it undergoes treatments like chlorination, introducing a pungent taste and smell.
Additionally, the rise of Emerging Organic Contaminants (EOCs) from human activities, including runoff from agricultural fields, wastewater discharges, and industrial processes, poses environmental challenges. The discharge of pharmaceuticals and micro-pollutants into water bodies heightens concerns about human exposure and public health.
To address these issues and ensure high-quality, great-tasting water, the optimal solution is to install a water filter system at home or office. AquaCo provides various options tailored to your needs and budget.
2. What is the advantage of using a water filter system compared to bottled water?
The expenses at the end of the year will give you the answer to this question. Bottled water is way more expensive than installing a water filter system at home.
