I was brought up in Singapore and used to drink from the tap as we had soft water and so had less limescale. Since moving to the UK, I have always lived in hard water areas. As I found out, the hardness of your water is not just dependent on your supplier but also on your postcode. While experts say it is generally not harmful to your health, I believe it affects the taste of water and therefore any beverage made from it.
Since I came to UK, I have been using a water filter religiously for my family. I will use it for cooking, making drinks for children and all sorts. I think it is so much nicer to drink too. I’ve also not had to descale my kettle for years as it still remains clean.
Recently Aqua Optima got in touch to see if I would like to try them out. I thought why not. I have been using the same brand for over 10 years and this brand’s water filters are getting very expensive nowadays. It is about time to look for an alternative without compromising the quality of the water.
