Or get out of a shower or bath all itchy and red?
Or notice a green or rusty tinge to the colour of your water?
Unfortunately, whilst the water that comes out of our kitchen tap is clean, much has been added intentionally (such as chlorine, fluoride) and just as much unintentionally (such as heavy metals, pesticides, fertilisers, asbestos).
To remove these contaminants you need a water filter for your drinking water but also your shower, bath and laundry. There are a huge variety of filters on the market today, from simple table-top plastic jugs to whole house filtering systems. It’s not straightforward – it depends on so many factors: cost, bench-top space, under-sink space, water pressure, contaminants etc. There are four main types of drinking water filter systems: jug; under counter; bench-top, and tap mounted. As well as customised undercounted filters, you can also install a reverse osmosis filter.
Which do you choose? That’s where I come in. I will assess your unique situation so that when you invest in a filter it’s customised to your needs.

If water quality testing is necessary, we can undertake it one of two ways. By ordering the kit online or through a laboratory yourself, or I can just do it all for you. In either case, I will interpret the results but to reduce the costs you may prefer to organise it yourself. Just let me know when we chat.

When we moved into our 1940s home over ten years ago, heavy metals and lead exposure were not on my mind. Why on earth should they have been? Well, namely because lead is the most common environmental contaminant in the world. Any house built or renovated before...
