    Default Water Filters

    A worthwhile investment?

    that being said, probably a good idea but we don't use one. used to, but couldn't be bothered with buying the replacement filter and removed it. doesn't make the water taste drastically different (in our area, anyway) but theoretically blocks out lots to nasty stuff.

    I've been thinking about getting one for ages tbh. I just dunno if it's worth the cost of having to keep up with buying the filter cartridges and thought someone like HMGovt might be big into them.

    yeah, just yanking' yr chain.

    TBF, the filters probably last longer than the manufacturer suggestions (2-3 months, depending on usage and how hard the water is). you can probably get away with replacing the filter two or three times a year.

    It's a difficult one as it's the kind of thing you can't really tell you're benefiting from other than maybe a change in taste. You don't really know what's in the water that's being filtered out or how effective the filtration is.

    thing is, you don't really have anything to lose by getting one, right? there's no downside, and they aren't very expensive. give it a try.

    There's nothing wrong with the water in London, it has already been filtered several times before it gets to you.

    If you don't like the taste, fair enough.

    don't waste your money on that stuff, you'll only make yourself a victim of clever marketing. i'm no expert on water quality in the uk but i'm assuming it's just fine.
