Although tap water is drinkable almost everywhere in Europe, its quality varies from one region to another, both in terms of taste and composition.
MICROFILTRATION, A FLEXIBLE SOLUTION
In addition to the basic water treatment, and to make our tap water taste more pleasant, it may be interesting to use microfiltered water solutions.
We offer a wide range of products adapted to your kitchen, whatever its size and needs, to give all tap water drinkers the pleasure of drinking.
The most basic solution consists of a water inlet at the tap, which passes through a filtration cartridge under the sink and allows unlimited access to the micro-filtered water. For larger needs, there are also variable flow fountains.
These flexible solutions also make it possible to cool the water and make it sparkling so that it can be enjoyed by as many people as possible.
How does microfiltration work? Water coming directly from the tap passes through a filter with a width between 0.1 and 1 micrometer, which eliminates a large part of the particles present, including even some residual bacteria.
The result: purer water and a much less pronounced chlorine taste while preserving the minerals essential to the health of the human body.
REDISCOVER THE PLEASURE OF TAP WATER
Microfiltered water is not only more pleasant for direct consumption, but also has significant advantages when cooking.
Indeed, many recipes use tap water extensively: pasta, risotto, bread, sorbets, cocktails and broths in particular.
Many chefs now use micro-filtered water exclusively as cooking and gourmet preparation water for its pure taste that does not interfere with tasting.
Indeed, micro-filtered water makes it possible to obtain stable culinary results regardless of the local quality of the water and pipes, without parasitizing the taste or bringing disruptive elements.
No need to leave the water in the refrigerator in summer or to limit yourself to tap water for lovers of sparkling water, microfiltered water makes it possible to have fresh, sparkling water at home all year round.
AN ECOLOGICAL SOLUTION
The other important aspect of microfiltered water is its ecological interest compared to the consumption of bottled water. Between the use of plastic bottles, the exploitation of natural sources and pollution related to transport, the consumption of bottled water is an ecological disaster.
On the other hand, micro-filtered water promotes the use of water already available at the tap and the use of reusable bottles (often made of glass).
Plastic pollution is a major environmental issue. In France today, only 49% of plastic bottles are recycled.
For the rest, 39% of the plastic waste is landfilled and the rest is burned, releasing toxic fumes into the air and poisoning the soil in the long term, knowing that it takes an average of 1000 years for a plastic bottle to completely degrade.
Switching to micro-filtered water is therefore a contribution to the fight against pollution of our land and oceans. France is the 5th largest consumer of bottled water in the world, while our tap water is one of the best in the world. Unbelievable !
