    Water filtration systems.

    Anyone know the best place to get one of these for a small house? Nothing too grand but the water must be clean. What kind of price/cost am I looking at?

    Pure seem to be the ones Thai's think are good, maybee cos there a bit pricey. Ours was 8500k at least the cartridges are easy to change over and they come and fit it for youoo

    If you looking for good, clean drinking water the Hexagon 8 stage filtration system is better than anything Thailand has to offer under the 8k mark. This is 4k. I've used the pure and it wasn't a patch on this for taste and cleanliness.

    It is available in Thailand.

    Note that many filters will not filter chloramine.

    They actually add minerals to the water so not just a filter, may or may not be good/what people want. The pure water tastes OK to me.

    Im bkk based so cannot speak for whats in pattya.

    Tesco's and makro sell them. the larger malls will have a consession or two selling them too.

    All filters will come with
    a sediment filter to remove sediment and ameba
    carbon filter(s) primarry to get rid chlorine (very important for ro filters) and organic contaminants

    Then with a standard filter you will have an ion exchange filter to replace water hardness (calcium and magnesium) with sodium.

    in an reverse osmosis filter, you will then have the RO membrain which removes 99% of everything thats not water.

    At this point you have your clean water. Some people will then add a UV steriliser (arguably overkill on an undamaged RO filter) and for a RO filter a re mineralisation, i.e. a tube full of stones, to put the minterals removed by the RO filter back in.... arguably pointless

    for a reverse osmosis filter I belive you are looking at 6k up
    for a std ion exchange filter its about 3k up

    if you are out in the sticks and using well water, you might need to add extra filtering if your water has high levels of nitrate, arsenic, iron, manganese or fluoride

    Agree, that's more of a water conditioning system.
    All I want out of a filter system is h2o.

    For this, I think bigger and more expensive is going to be best. RO ones can be had for a few thousand dollars.
    The cousin put in one from tesco, looks like 3 small bottle sized filters side by side, it's crap. Water is still scaled, water from it will turn in a few days if left sitting in a glass.
