Drinking water filters can be used in a variety of different ways - one of the most convenient is the inline, or under-counter, filter.

What is an inline water filter?

An inline water filter works by becoming part of a particular water supply. In the home this is usually by being added to the water supply that serves the main cold water tap in the kitchen.An inline water filter is attached directly to the water pipe running underneath the sink. Water is filtered as it passes through the ceramic candle contained within the housing before reaching the tap.

Benefits of an inline water filter

Inline water filters are a highly efficient and discreet way to filter drinking water.By being fitted under the counter, inline filters save surface space in the kitchen and are kept out of sight.

They are also in operation constantly so there is no need to empty containers or take action to activate the filter.

Packed with ceramic technology Doulton's inline water filters remove up to 99.99% of contaminants from drinking water including:

  • Chlorine
  • Heavy metals
  • Water-borne cysts such as giardia and cryptosporidium
  • Pathogenic bacteria such as E. coli

Inline water filters also provide a longer-term solution to easily access healthy drinking water with the ceramic candles inside the filter only needing to be replaced around every six months.

Installing an inline water filter

Most inline filters also require a compatible counter-top tap to channel the filtered water through. This can be either a dedicated cold water tap that is added to the additional tap set-up, or a three-way mixer tap that will provide hot, cold and filtered water.

Each of Doulton's inline water filters comes complete with installation instructions and video guidance is provided online, alternatively installation would be very straightforward for a professional plumber.

Doulton's inline water filters have been designed to make changing the ceramic candle a simple task as they can screw out to be easily replaced.

With Doulton's Ecofast filter only the filter needs changing, hugely cutting down on the amount of waste.

Inline water filters are one of the most popular home drinking water filtration systems and with good reason. Their design allows them to be:

  • Compact and discreet
  • Long lasting
  • Highly efficient
  • Readily available
  • Space-saving

If you are looking for a no-fuss, long-lasting and tidy drinking water filter system, an inline water filter is a fantastic option.
