House Moving 101 - How Clean Is Our Tap Water? Review On Fitech Filter and Shower Head

[Sponsored Review]

I was enlightened 5 years ago that, not only the food we eat is essential to our well-being, the water we drink and use is important too. In fact, poor quality water supply is one of the contributing factors to diseases and poor health. Read Dr. Mercola's report here.

Many people drink straight from the tap, thinking that it is very safe. After all, Singapore's water adhere to WHO's standard, right? But, Singapore's tap water does have lye, fluoride, chlorine, and what not. Though these are in low dosage, imagine taking low dosage over 7 decades (assuming you are living that long) or more. Just as the proverb says, little drops of water make a mighty ocean. Our health deteriorate over time, usually it is the small things that add up.

On one hand, these chemicals are necessary to kill the bacteria in the water and balance up the pH level, on the other hand, given a choice, would you want to consume them? Watch this video I have gotten from youtube and you will realise how much chlorine and other chemical we have consumed daily. If you wash your organic fruits and vegetables with tap water, you would have just contaminated them, wasting the extra money you paid for for organic produce.

Pardon me that it is in Mandarin. It is the only independent video I can find that doesn't have any products tied to it. You may be able to figure out what's going on even without hearing the conversation/explanation.

Thus, I am convinced that I need a filter system for my water supply that could filter these chemical out after they have served their purposes (i.e. kill the bacteria).

We already have a medical grade water ionizer for our drinking water, but for shower, we haven't had any. Filtech, a local company, got me to try out their Kenji SWF 165 – Water Filter Shower Head and Filtra Plus FWF 177 – Tap Water Filter.

Kenji SWF 165 – Water Filter Shower Head
Kenji SWF 165 Shower Head is designed in Japan. It can reduce our chlorine exposure up to 98%, removes impurities and bad odour. It also helps to conserve water up to 40%. At $14.90 per piece, it is on par with the normal shower head we can get from any DIY shop. Why settle for less when you can get better one at the same price?

I was told that you should change Kenji SWF 165 Shower Head once a year or whenever you observe the beads call for a change.

Filtra Plus FWF 177 - Tap Water Filter
Filtra Plus FWF 177 Tap Water Filer is also designed in Japan. It has multi-layer filtration thus it is able to eliminate up to 99% of bacteria, impurities and Chlorine. At $39.90, it is really one of the most affordable ones in the market. Plus, it is so easy to install, even ladies can do it. The Filter Replacement ($14.90) is good for 3-6 months depending on usage. So do change the Filter Replacement regularly to maintain the optimal water supply.

We install the Filtra Plus FWF 177 Tap Water Filter in my kitchen sink for washing dishes and hands.
