What are alkaline water filters and why should you install one in your home?
If you think about it, we use huge amounts of water every day. Whether it’s grabbing a glass of water, taking a shower, brushing your teeth, or cooking, those taps get plenty of use!
It goes without saying, then, that we want the water we’re using to be as clean and healthy as possible. Alkaline under sink water filters are a tool to help you make sure you and your family are drinking and bathing in water that’s not detrimental to your health.
What Are Alkaline Water Filters?
Alkaline water filters aren’t just your traditional water filter systems. As well as removing contaminants, these handy units also treat the water with healthy minerals. This creates the perfect pH balance in the water that you’re ingesting.
Water that’s filtered by any other kind of filtration system may be free of debris and larger contaminants. But chances are, it’s not at the optimal pH for the body to absorb and use it efficiently.
That’s what sets alkaline water filter units apart. They play a significant role in making your water cleaner, healthier, and better for your body. Whether you’re bathing in it or drinking it, alkaline water is a step above your average tap water.
How Do They Work?
Alkaline water filters serve a dual purpose. Firstly, they filter the water coming into them to remove impurities and debris that could be hazardous. They do this by chemically changing the water so the smaller H2O molecules of alkaline water are passed through. The acidic water is routed elsewhere.
Secondly, they add healthy essential minerals back into the water stream. Often, these get removed during the filtering process. Potassium, magnesium, and calcium are the essential minerals that are added back in. This brings your water back to a perfect pH9 level.
Don’t confuse these with a different alkaline machine called an ionizer. These simply separate alkaline and acidic water as the stream comes into the filter. They don’t add any minerals afterwards.
How Are They Installed?
Alkaline water filter installation is super easy. The filtration unit fits neatly underneath your sink. So there’s no need for invasive procedures that cause damage to your home.
A technician will connect the filter system to the pipes underneath your kitchen sink. It’s that easy!

What Are the Benefits of Alkaline Water Filters?
There may not be extreme, dramatic changes in your home when you install an alkaline water filter system. But alkalising your water has a positive effect over time.
Considering how much water we ingest, the healthier it can be, the better! Even if you don’t drink a lot of it, we cook with it and bath/shower in it too, where it gets absorbed into the skin.
Easier For the Body to Absorb
The purpose of alkaline water filter units is to bring your water to an alkaline pH. This is an advantage, as alkaline water molecules are smaller than acidic ones.
That means alkaline water molecules are easier for the body to absorb. When your body is absorbing more water with less effort, it leads to better hydration.
The benefits of being well-hydrated are many! Some of them include:
- Improved digestive process
- Healthy, smooth skin
- Higher energy levels
- Better nutrient absorption
May Lead to Improved Health
Simply installing an alkaline system under your sink can improve your family’s health. As well as hydration, studies show interesting results that point to better health.
- This study suggests better blood flow through the veins and arteries, linked to drinking alkaline water.
- This one shows evidence that acid reflux can be improved, as alkaline water neutralises the compound that causes it.
- And this research indicates that people with diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol may also gain health benefits from drinking alkaline water.
It Tastes and Feel Better
An alkaline unit cleanses, purifies, and infuses water with health minerals. Because of this, the water that comes out of your tap feels smoother and tastes better on your taste buds.
You can’t miss the smooth, silky feeling of this kind of water. It’s noticeably different to the “hard” water that you’re used to. It also has a slightly sweet taste to it!
Which Alkaline Water Filter Should I Get?
Here at Great Water Filters Australia, we take pride in providing top-of-the-line products. We truly believe that clean, healthy water is something every person and family needs and deserves.
We offer two different alkaline water filter machine options; the Elite Series 2 and the Elite Series 3. Both offer clean, clear, and pH-balanced water. The one you choose just depends on you and your needs.
The Elite Series 2 is a specialist alkaline water filter that purifies your water down to 0.2 micron, in three different stages. It gets rid of dirt, mud, rust, pesticides, debris, heavy metals, bacteria, and chlorine.
Once the filtration process is over, the Elite Series 2 adds health minerals back to the water. This ensures that you’re getting all you need with every sip.
The Elite Series 3 is similar to the series 2. However, it includes a reverse osmosis process in its filtration. This means instead of filtering down to a 0.2 micron level (which is still excellent), your water will end up filtered down to 0.0001 micron.
It removes the same impurities you can expect to be free of with the Elite 2. There’s just much less chance of tiny particles slipping through. So the water you’ll be drinking from the Elite Series 3 filter is the cleanest and safest you can find!
