Most people will install a countertop water filter in the kitchen so they can enjoy filtered water anytime. However, installing one on the bathroom counter has many benefits that people didn’t realize they could have.
For starters, you can have filtered water at your disposal. No longer will you need to get up, walk all the way down to the kitchen, especially if you live in a multi-story house, just to get a glass of water. This is especially helpful if you have cold wooden or tile floors. Now all you have to do is take a few steps to your bathroom and pour out filtered water.
This also means you can use filtered water for an oral pulsating irrigator, also known as a water flosser. When using a water flosser, having filtered water makes a big difference, mainly in how the water tastes. Regular, unfiltered tap water will have all sorts of contaminants such as chlorine, VOC’s, PCB’s, lead, pesticides, and micro-organisms such as cysts and giardia. By making sure none of those contaminants are in your oral irrigator, the chances of you getting an infection or sick from them are greatly diminished.
In addition, a countertop water filter like the Aquasure Dash Series, can be the source of water on any CPAP machine. Though many CPAP manufacturers recommend using distilled or reverse osmosis water, the water that is filtered through the countertop system is equipped with a 0.5-micron filter which prevents any of the previously mentioned contaminants above from coming out of the unit.
Another thing to consider when it comes to having filtered water attached to the bathroom faucet is the fact you could easily use the water to wash your face. It would be much better for your skin since the contaminants have been trapped in the carbon filter inside. This means you won’t have harsh chemicals like chlorine and chloramine touching your face and causing breakouts.
Overall, a water filter in your bathroom is very convenient as well as offer health benefits. The 0.5-micron filter in the Dash Series eliminates a variety of contaminates all the while providing great tasting water. Furthermore, you won’t stub your toe on the foot of your bed while trying to walk to the kitchen in the middle of the night for a glass of water.
