What Are The Benefits Of A Three-Way Tap?

In Blog 0 comments

Most people are used to having two-way taps, allowing them to get both hot and cold water in one mixer tap. However, these days you don’t have to settle with just this, as you can add a whole other element to your drinking choices – filtered or unfiltered water.

Three-way taps, which are sometimes known as tri-flow taps, allow users to have cold, hot, or filtered water when filling up their glasses. They either come with two levers, one for both cold and hot, and one for filtered, or they have three levers, one for each type of water.


No need for separate equipment

The major benefit of having a three-way tap is you can always enjoy filtered water without having a separate apparatus to filter your drinking water. Therefore, you can have access to a drink that is fresh and safe to consume whenever you are thirsty.


Safe to drink

Its ‘tube within a tube’ design means the filtered tap is separated from normal mains water, allowing it to remain filtered at all times, and not contaminated with the rest of the house’s supply.

Thanks to the removal of metals, bacteria, minerals, and chlorine, it is not only safer to drink than normal tap water, but it has a better taste and smell.

Additionally, you know that everything you drink contains minerals and vitamins, including magnesium, required for muscles and nerves, as well as energy production, and potassium, which is needed for cell function.


Saves space

As you do not have need any extra water filter jugs, you can save plenty of space on your kitchen worktops. Therefore, it is not only convenient and cheaper, but makes your kitchen appear tidier and less cluttered.


Cuts down on costs

People who cannot tolerate the taste or impurity of mains supply water might, otherwise, be tempted to buy bottled water.

According to the US National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine, women need 2.7 litres of fluids a day and men require 3.7 litres. It could even be more than this for those who regularly exercise, live in hot conditions, or are pregnant or breastfeeding. A family of four, therefore, could go through as much as 15 litres of water a day, which is a lot of money spent on bottles.

Therefore, having filtered water from the tap would save the expense of buying a considerable number of bottles a week.


 Better for the environment

Not only does it save households money, but swapping bottled water for filtered taps also benefits the environment. A family of four could go through 105 one-litre bottles of water a week at the recommended intake, which contributes heavily to the amount of plastic going to landfill.

It takes plastic bottles up to 450 years to decompose, which means they will still be there in 20 generations’ time.
