I always think our water from tap is clean until I installed the filter.
After 3 months, the white filter turned brown.

boiling is not good enough.

Boil a rock, end up a germless rock.
Hdb metal piping sometimes old Liao can have mineral deposits not unlike arterial plaque.
This can affect taste but some people are not as sensitive to it than others.
Germs, microbes, can boil and kill.

Hi all, anyone has reviews for Livingcare tankless water filtration system (with hot and cold dispenser)? Released 3 months ago under same parent company as Hydroflux and Ruhens.

What's the best and small sized water dispenser to get. Because my kitchen counter is a bit cramped and I only have one schneider electric extension cord for the kitchen and there's no space for another plug.

You can call PUB to take sample from your house. Filter you buy is caveat emptor. Tap water is regulated by law.

Quote from PUB faq:

Is tap water in Singapore safe? Do we need to use a cloth filter or any other types of filter at our taps?
Singapore’s tap water is well within the drinking water quality guidelines of the World Health Organisation (WHO) and is suitable for drinking without any further filtration, treatment or use of point-of-use water treatment/filtration devices such as water filters and purifiers.

PUB discourages the use of filtration devices as bacteria could grow on the filters if they are not cleaned or replaced regularly.

For customers who choose to add filters on their taps, they may see brownish deposits on their filters over time. This is because our tap water contains minute amounts of minerals including iron and manganese. These are natural minerals inherent in water. Although minerals contents in the water are very low and not visible, discolouration of the filter will eventually be noticeable when minerals absorbed in the filters are oxidised.

Should the public have any enquiries please contact PUB 24-hour Call Centre at 1800-CALL PUB (1800-2255-782).
