Recently, I am moving to my new condo and I was looking up and down for a suitable water filter for my home. Since I am using 3M for my current house and it is so convenient and good, there is no point shifting to other brands. And I am a big fan of 3M as well. And one of my priorities for my family is having the save and clean water for my family to ensure that everyone is healthy. I did my search off the net finding information about water filtration system. And there are many names that popping up on the net but do u know that 3M is one of the brands which is very promising.
And 3M filters has over 70 years of experience in filtration technology. And of course, 3M Purification Inc. is one the brands that claims pass the rigorous testing standards of one of the most respected names in the industry, NSF. NSF is a non-profit, non-governmental organization focused on public health and safety. NSF certification provides assurance to those who manufacture, sell and use products through its independent review and testing. They undergo toxicological reviews, performance testing and manufacturing facility inspections before certification is granted.
Even though the water is treated by the Ministry of Health from their treatment plant, I am still concerned about the water quality when it reaches to my pipes. And staying in condominium, the water will be stored in the tanks before going down to us (home user) and we know that it will go through a few steps before you have your water. Hence, I decided to get myself an outdoor filter or so-called the POE system to filter the sediments and bacteria before reach to my home. And most importantly, they are used to filter out sediment and the chlorine taste and colours as well. And now the problem comes in where space is a concern to have your water filtered to your home.
Thanks to 3M as they had released the mini POE system which is meant for condominium and apartments. The 3M POE system have all you need where they are small and conveniently installed in your unit itself. As we know; many POE system need to do backwash from time to time and they are pretty huge, but this 3M filter free you from all this hassle. The POE System is simply a small one and you can even have them installed in your unit itself where what we need to do is to ask the contractor to find the main pipe to your home or if your condo allows, you can install them at the riser.
As for my condo, they do not allow any installation of POE System, and therefore my contractor help me to locate the main pipe to my home and we install them there before the water distributed to all other rooms, and kitchen. It is simply easy! The installation takes around an hour.
The 3M POE System fits perfectly on my home and this makes me have a cleaner laundry, cleaner water for cooking and also reduces the skin allergies and irritation. Not just that, the water filter comes with easy maintenance and you can easily change a cartridge where dummies like me also can do it by myself.
Asides from the POE System that filters the whole house, I also opt to get a water filter for drinking consumption. The Drinking Water System bringing you with the cleaner water where you can literally drink off the tap in the kitchen after the double filtration.
And for my kitchen I had my 3M’s Smart Drinking Water System (DWS2500T-CN) installed. For my home, they took around an hour for the whole installation and the installer did a good job where his work is neat and there is very less mess.
For the 3M’s Smart Drinking Water System (DWS2500T-CN); they drilled a small hole on the kitchen tip to link the pipe from the tap below the sink. The installer will ask your preference on where they should drill the hole. And they carefully drilled them accordingly to your needs.
The new model of the 3M’s Smart Drinking Water System (DWS2500T-CN) having the capacity to filter up to 750 gallons of water with the following rate of 2.84lpm. And the most important where the DWS2500T-CN comes with the 3M’s patented IMPACT Technology.
What is IMPACT Technology?
And in DWS2500T-CN; it comes with two filtration process where the first process is with the premium pleated polypropylene membrane to reduce undesirable dirt, rust, particles and turbidity that may not be visible to the eye.
And for the second process which is the IMPACT Technology comes in is where it is the second stage of fine filtration which is the revolutionary IMPACT media with superior filtration capabilities.
The “IMPACT” media package combines a patented pharmaceutical-grade two-zone microporous membrane having built-in advance anti bacteria system, that reduces Cryptosporidium and Giardia cysts and more than 99.99% of all water-borne bacteria. And with this, there will be more than 99.99% of E.coli bacteria are reduced by the nylon pharmaceutical grade membrane. And with this, you are assured that your water is clean and safe for drinking.
Asides, I love the dedicated faucet which is for the drinking water. It comes with slim and elegant look and it is simply convenient too. As everything is below which is inside the kitchen cabinet, my kitchen looks clean and more elegant look too.
And they do have indicator too where when it is blue light, it is for clean water and when it red, it is due to change.
And Why I choose 3M water filter?
❤️The Reliability- With the numerous of certification and one of them is NSF, I am assured that the water that I am drinking in clean and free from bacteria.
❤️Changing the Cartridges – Changing the cartridges is just no brainier, and it takes less than 10 seconds to do it
❤️Convenient: As for me, I do not like to have stranger to come to my home every few months for cartridge changing and maintenance. Asides, we do not need to take leave to wait them to change the cartridges.
❤️Maintenance Cost: Overall I could say the maintenance cost is pretty affordable as the cartridges change around 1 year. For example, the POE System cartridge is at around RM 549 (RRP) and the cartridge can last you a year or more. And it only takes you approx. RM 1.50 per day to enjoy a clean water for your whole family and house.
