The Ares Inox is a high quality brushed 3 Way Tap which has no metal (lead content). Most 3 way taps have brass components which often contain a tiny trace of lead, which the Inox cleverly avoids by providing separate internal channels for the purified water which are from a non-leaching high-grade polypropylene. The tap has two handles making it easy to mix hot and cold from the right side, and the left handle dedicated to dispensing the filtered water. Having 3 distinct connections, the tap is also suitable for use without a filter system, for example if you just want to use it with a water softener and have hard water connected with softened hot and cold.
The tap oozes with quality and elegance, making a beautiful and functional addition to your kitchen with the added assurance of the best possible filtered water you can have.
✔ Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) – for chlorine, taste and odour reduction
✔ Phosphate – for scale inhibition
✔ De-alk resin – for temporary hardness and heavy metal reduction
The Watts 2.5 x 10 GAC/Phosphate & De-Alk Filter incorporates granular activated carbon (GAC) which is combined with Phosphate and De-alk resin. The filter is effective against chlorine, taste and odour, heavy metals e.g. lead, and will also tackle hard water, which is seen as limescale in kettles and as an unsightly scum on the surface of hot drinks. Water hardness varies greatly depending upon location, so the filter will need to be replaced at 3 - 6 monthly intervals or longer all of which entirely depends on the hardness of your water and the amount you use.
We recommend your flow rate not exceed 4 LPM for the best contact time and filtration.
