Point Of Use Filter


A point of use filter are designed to reduce and remove waterborne pathogens and bacterias by filtering off the ends of any faucets. These can range from showerheads to faucets to sinks. Point-of-use filters are physical barriers to bacteria (0.2 micron)

There are some situations that warrant hyperchlorination or thermal heat and flush. However, these are not guaranteed to be effective, depending on the contamination of the system with Legionella.

Point-of-use filters grant facilities time to deal with long-term corrective actions while guaranteed protection to residents and public. At ChemREADY, we work with AquaMedix and Sanipur to provide filters.

Point-of-use (POU) filters are lifesavers for those seeking cleaner, better-tasting drinking water right where they consume it. Unlike whole-house filtration systems that treat all incoming water, POU filters target a specific tap, typically the kitchen faucet.

Types of POU Filters:

  • Faucet-mounted filters: These compact units screw directly onto your faucet and are ideal for removing chlorine, taste, and odor.
  • Pitcher filters: These portable filters hold water and have a built-in cartridge that removes impurities as water flows through.
  • Under-sink filters: Installed beneath the sink, these larger units offer multi-stage filtration, often incorporating reverse osmosis technology for superior contaminant removal.

Benefits of POU Filters:

  • Improved taste and odor: POU filters eliminate unpleasant chlorine taste and odor, making water more palatable.
  • Reduced contaminants: They can remove a range of impurities, like lead, mercury, and certain bacteria, depending on the filter type.
  • Convenience: POU filters provide easy access to cleaner water without needing to buy bottled water.
  • Cost-effective: Compared to bottled water, POU filters are a more economical way to ensure a steady supply of clean drinking water.

Choosing a POU Filter:

Consider factors like your budget, desired level of filtration, and water pressure when selecting a POU filter. Look for certifications from NSF International to ensure the filter meets safety standards for contaminant reduction.

With their convenience and effectiveness, POU filters offer a simple solution for enjoying cleaner, better-tasting water directly from your tap. If you need help selecting a filter, contact us today!
