Water is important for overall general health, and having a water filter in your home helps to eliminate bacteria that is swimming around in your tap water, thereby creating cleaner and clearer drinking water. The key feature in a water filter is how many stages of filtration it has; the more stages it has, the more your water is filtered. Most tap water filters have anywhere between one and nine stages; a one-stage filter contains a deionization stage, and a nine-stage filter has three reverse osmosis membranes, three deionization cartridges, a sediment filter, a carbon filter and a booster pump, creating enhanced cleanliness in your water.
