Melbourne’s trusted experts on water filters

Melbournians are extremely fortunate to be able to access drinking water from any tap around them. But there’s a stark difference between ‘drinkable’ and ‘filtered’ tap water. Damaged and corroded plumbing can leave unfiltered water soiled with trace amounts of chemicals, metals, sediment and bacteria.

Inner City Plumber has sourced and installed filtered water systems for residential, commercial and public sites across Melbourne. From residential under-sink water filters to high-capacity filters for restaurants and hospitality venues, we can install filters suitable for any scale.

How do you choose the best water filter system? Depends on the context. The right filter is the one that accounts for the particular qualities of your tap water and that can also handle the usage demands of your site. We’ll help you assess different filters and install the most effective water filtration solution to meet your needs.

Done once, done right

Water filters are a long-term investment. Pick the right make and model, and you can rely on your filtration system to reliably protect you, your staff and your loved ones for years (with regular servicing, of course). By sourcing the best filter products available, we’ll help you make the right choice.

Frequently asked questions

A whole-house water filter is a robust filter fitted at the junction between the water mains and your building. By choosing to install water filters at these entry points, you ensure that all the water flowing into your site is purified.

You may find this a preferable alternative to installing a sink water filter at every individual faucet.

The contaminants filtered out of your drinking water will remain trapped in the filter cartridges. Every so often, you will need to replace these cartridges to ensure your filters operate effectively. How often you need to do this depends on how heavily you use your filters.

  • Residential water filters should be replaced every year
  • Commercial and industrial filters should be replaced every six months

There are a variety of filtration systems that use different methods for particular purposes. Here are a few popular water filter types that you might find helpful.

  • Reverse osmosis water filters: these filters strain water through an extremely fine membrane under high pressure, removing large particulates of grit and microscopic bacteria.
  • Carbon water filters: these filters strain water through activated carbon, which removes impurities as well as foul odours and tastes. However, carbon filters still allow healthy minerals to pass through.
  • Fluoride water filters: fluoride is added to our drinking water supply as it helps prevent tooth decay. However, these specialty filters can strip the fluoride out of your tap water if that’s what you prefer.
