Installing a drinking water filter makes sense because it forms a barrier against dirt and particles entering your domestic water system. What many people don't know is a whole house filter is ideal for protecting drinking water supplies and appliances.
Particles and impurities such as rust and sand can be generated when a property is first connected to the water supply or during maintenance work. The BWT R1 backflush filter keeps them out of your domestic water system. Installing this or a similar type of drinking water filter in every domestic installation is even mandatory in some countries. Without a protective filter, particles such as these can cause problems – from a dripping tap in the bathroom or kitchen to malfunctions in washing machines and other household appliances.
