Dear Ali,
The reverse osmosis unit. This filter installs under the sink, and its installation requires the arrival of a professional. Even more efficient than tap filters, the osmosis system circulates the water through several purification steps. First, the ceramic pre-filter removes dust, rust. Then, a filter composed of DFK (degration fluxion kinetic, which is a zinc-copper alloy) filters heavy metals. A water filter can be fitted to the faucet without the need for special tools. It contains a charcoal cartridge that filters an average of 1,200 liters and needs to be changed every three months or so. It is a particularly recommended system for removing bad odors due to chlorine, but also pesticides, nitrates and heavy metals.
With my best regards
