Where to buy water filters online in South Africa
Find out where you can buy effective jugs and pitchers to add some extra filtration to your tap water.
Tap water is generally safe to drink depending on the region you’re living in, but there’s still usually a lot of chemicals, including chlorine which is used to remove bacteria from the water supply. You don’t necessarily want to consume all those chemicals, and they often affect the taste negatively too.
If you’re looking to remove some of the contaminants and additives found in drinking water and improve the taste, check out these retail sites where you can buy water filters online and get them delivered to your address.
