It is a fact of life that filtered drinking water is a healthier alternative that lacks the damaging contaminants and chemicals found in many water supplies. Not only that, but it often tastes better as a result of passing through a water filter of one kind or another. Whatever your water usage and needs, when it comes to the subject of a high-quality water filtration system there are many factors to take into account. Your existing conditions and water supply are key among them.

Choosing the right water filters for your home depends largely on where your water comes from, as different water sources require different types of filtration. Is it a remote location with access issues and a water profile that perhaps requires a desalination process, or one that has easier access but higher levels of contaminants and chemicals such as excessive fluoride? It may be that you wish to take advantage of a natural supply and install the best water filter for rainwater.

Homebrew Works can help with all aspects of your water profile, from water filter cartridges to aquarium filter parts and everything in-between.

Brewing water

One area that benefits greatly from the cleanest, purest possible water is brewing. Anyone who has ever made home brew knows how essential complete sterilisation is, as bacteria and contaminants will ruin any efforts. Well, this is just as true if those contaminants aren’t from the equipment itself, but are already present in the brew water profile.

A reverse osmosis water filter is one of the most comprehensive, multi-stage water filters to remove contaminants and is particularly useful when it comes to brewing beer. That’s why many brewers choose to use reverse osmosis or ‘RO water’ and remove those issues from an already delicate equation as RO brew water is pH 5-7 and free from impurities. Once the water has passed through an RO water filter, brewing salts can be added back to correct any ionic and mineral deficiencies that might now exist in the water.

Total dissolved solids

Total dissolved solids or TDS refer to the amount of anything dissolved in the water such as metals, minerals, and salts, some of which are beneficial to our health and some which are quite the opposite. A TDS meter is a useful tool to gauge the level of unwanted elements in your own particular water supply and choose your home water filtration system accordingly.

Total dissolved solids affect your water quality and can impact your health, your home plumbing system, aquarium filter, water filter pump, and even cooking and cleaning processes. By measuring your water for TDS, you can make an informed decision to improve your water profile and install the most effective water filtration system for your home.

The business of choosing a water filter system that works for you can be daunting, so contact the Homebrew Works team today and we’ll be only too happy to discuss your exact situation and water filter requirements with you.
