Chup, water break!
In this week’s series of home appliance reviews, we will take a good look at water purifying faucets most loved by Singaporean homes. There are a lot of faucet-detached purifiers out there. While it might be preferred by some, it is not favoured by all.
It is still better to have clean water coming out from the faucet. After all, you will not want your hands to be constantly in contact with chlorinated water. It can deplete the skin’s moisture, causing it to be dry, itchy and even flaky.
With a purifying water faucet, you curb this issue and you are assured quality water for drinking and washing, always!
We break down the best of the best, here:
Philips On-Tap 4 Layer water Purifier WP3811/10
This sleek, white gadget is compact and easy to instal. It may look small, but it contains four layers of filters to remove bacteria, harmful organic compounds and chlorine. The membrane contains more than 520 billion micropores that help to siphon out 99.99% of bacteria. However, it still retains all the good minerals your body needs.
The QuickFit tap adaptors can fit most taps but do double check first before purchasing. It also comes with a colour-coded Pure Protect alert, indicating when you should change your filter.
Changing filters is also a no-fuss procedure. Just twist to open and replace!
Ian H. – Simple fit to kitchen tap with plenty of adaptors. Wife is happy with reduced water splash within the basin and surrounding area, certainly an unexpected bonus on top of cleaner water supply.

Filtech’s Xeltro CT22 – Counter Top Twin Water Filter
It is not as space-saving as the rest, but that is because they have a 7-stage ultra twin filtration that removes bacteria and chlorine. It also ionises the water, deodorising the taste. You will have two water outputs; one from your faucet and another coming out from the spout of the filtration system.
Each purchase comes with a one-year warranty, coupled with efficient after-sales support to help you with any issue you might face regarding the water purification system.
Jas Goh – Used this water filter for just 3 days and I can see a significant color change on the filter. Gives me the peace of mind to know that my family is not consuming those dirty substances in the water. Water tastes clean and fresh.

Doulton HCP CounterTop Water Filter BTU2504
Okay, so this is not exactly a faucet filter, but it is directed from the faucet and deserves, and honourable mention.

It removes 99.9% of all pollutants and produces no secondary pollution.
It is also easy to install and uninstall, perfect if you are going to move house!
Aman – Good quality product and clean taste. Already used for one month and no complaint thus far. One thing I noticed when I cook white rice, it will last more than a day unlike when using normal tap water. Tested many times and got the same result.
