The water released by most of the Italian water mains is of good quality. Unfortunately, during its way along the pipes, it might occur that water gets in contact with polluting substances melted; water mains are therefore obliged to use huge quantities of chlorine to eliminate bacterial loads.
The types of systems we can install under the kitchen sink are two:
Inverted osmosis systems
Inverted osmosis systems are characterized by a half-permeable osmotic membrane which acts selectively by holding every impurity present in water and releasing only pure water. In this way, the elimination and the reduction of possible chlorine, sodium, pesticide, chemical polluting substances, bacteria and virus present in water is ensured. Osmosis systems are of 2 types: with storage tank and with direct production.
With no doubt, microfiltration systems have smaller dimensions and different characteristics.
