Counter Top Water Filter
Why use a water filter?
The City treats drinking water by adding chemicals such as chlorine. Chlorine and it's by products are proven to impact negatively on one's health
Chemically treated water influences the taste of your cooking and anything you mix it with. Why spoil great coffee or whiskey with poor water?
Poor Water Quality
The water infrastructure in SA is decaying daily. Overloaded treatment plants and a shortage of water mean water quality is no longer consistent.
Chlorine is likely to trigger or even cause skin and respiratory allergies. Asthma and Eczema sufferers are particularly sensitive

Frequently Asked Questions
How can I be certain the filter will fit my plumbing?
The Counter Top filter tap fitting screws onto any standard mixer tap. Simply unscrew the existing sieve fitting on your tap and replace it with the diverter valve that comes in with Counter Top Filter.
Will the filter work with bore hole or rain water?
Yes, but we will need to change the cartridge inside the filter from the standard GAC / KDF cartridge to a ceramic filter. The standard cartridge is NOT suitable for non potable water.
Non potable water treatment and filters is a complicated topic. We suggest we discuss your set up with you before you make a buying decision.
Why do I see filters being sold elsewhere super cheap?
The visible part of a filter is relatively cheap, that is the housing and the plumbing parts. It is the quality of the cartridge inside the filter that counts.
If you see a very cheap filter that may look close to identical to a more expensive one, ask what type of filter is inside.
One can get very cheap carbon or even cheaper simple barrier filters that do very little for your water. They will need very frequent changes as they will not last very long meaning increased cost of life time ownership.
All the filters supplied by Buywaterfiltersonline are of the highest quality media with zero compromise on quality and water safety and purity.
What if I want to return the filter after delivery?
No problem, you can do so. If there is a fault with the product we will collect and replace the unit at no cost to you.
If you have a change of heart within the first 30 days then return for a full refund including the return shipping cost.
What if a part breaks or is faulty?
Depending on the fault we will either send you a replacement part, a replacement filter or refund you for the unit on it's return to us.
All the filters are inspected and tested before shipping so a fault is extremely unlikely.
Can I get an onsite consultation before I purchase?
In short, no.
In order to keep our overheads down so we can pass great savings to you, we are strictly an online business run via email and live chat (when available).
Our team has a combined experience of over 25 years in the water filtration industry. There is very little we have not come across before so we are very confident that the advice we provide will be accurate and effective. This saves the cost of employing on the road sales people and technicians, cost's we would have to build into our sales price.
Do you have diff cartridges for diff water types?
Yes we do. It is important to match your needs to the type of water that you have, and then choose the cartridge that is suited to both. For tap water we recommend the GAC/KDF cartridge as that is ideal for removing chlorine, other chemicals and heavy metals from the water. These are the main contaminants of tap water.
I want to filter all the water in my home?
We can help you do this but our 3 standard models are too small for the job.
We can provide you with a larger unit that will be fitted to the main inlet to your home, ensuring all the water in your house is filtered. Get in touch to discuss the best option for you.
Your skin absorbs even more chlorine when bathing and showering than when drinking.
How will I know when my cartridge needs replacing?
Our std GAC / KDF filters that come with our units will last for 2 years with normal house hold use. We will notify you when the 2 year period is up so you do not have to worry.
You will not notice any drop in water flow or even a change in taste as the change will be gradual making it difficult to detect.
If you use one of our other filters types, such as a ceramic filter for non potable water, then the life span will vary depending on the quality of the source water. We will discuss this in depth with you.
How do I get my undercounter filter installed?
The undercounter filters come with all the fittings required for installation for the most typical environments. A trained plumber will be able to install the unit in roughly 30 minutes. We suggest you get a quote from your plumber.
What type of warrantee do you offer?
All our units come with 1 year warrantee on the fittings and housings. The cartridges carry a 3 month warrantee only.

Angela's Backyard Farming
My Micro Greens require the purest water. Alex from Buywaterfiltersonline gave me great advice and within days the right filter arrived at my door. My plumber took 20min to install it and my micro greens are growing fantastically well. 10 of 10 for service and efficiency.
Principal Dafna pre Primary
We needed 5 under counter water filters to provide safe drinking water for each class room. Buywaterfitersonline gave us the best balance of price and quality. Their automated reminder system is great as we can relax knowing that we will be reminded when to change filters.
Do you really want to trust the city with something as important as the safety and quality of your drinking water?
The city does the best job it can with the resources it has available. But politics and government inefficiencies means our water treatment and supply systems are not getting the attention they need.
Take control and make sure your families health is not being compromised when it comes to their drinking water.
