Do You Need a Water Filtration Faucet?

Most kitchens only feature a single faucet mounted on or above the sink. However, there are many other optional faucets worth installing to expand the function of the kitchen. A separate water dispenser faucet with its own under-sink filtration unit is one of the best specialty faucets to add to any kitchen. Here’s why.
Longer Filter Lifespan
Homeowners who install a whole house filtration system or an under-sink filter on their main kitchen faucet often find replacement costs quickly rise out of control. This is due to the high volume of water going through the filter. By limiting filtration to just a single tap for drinking and cooking, each replacement filter can last months instead of just a few weeks.
Thanks to the longer lifespan of a filter supplying water just to a drinking water faucet, there’s less maintenance involved for the entire kitchen. Refills and replacements occur less often, leaving the homeowner with more time for focusing on other home improvements.
Less Plastic Waste
Installing a convenient and filtered separate tap on the side of the sink is a great way to encourage the entire family to drink more water. With more than 100 million plastic water bottles used each day around the world, every filtered faucet leads to less wasteful habits.
Hot and Cold Water on Demand
Some water dispenser faucets provide both hot and cold water on demand. In general, it’s not recommended that anyone use the hot water from a standard kitchen tap for tea or cooking. This water comes unfiltered out of the water heater where it’s often mixed with a lot of mineral residues. Water that is filtered after it comes from the water boiler is hot and ready to drink or use, reducing the need to use an electric kettle or microwave.
Installing a water dispenser faucet is easier to install than many homeowners assume. Find the perfect faucets here at Kingston Brass and then hire a local plumber for a quick kitchen upgrade.
