Safe To Drink From the Tap Due to sound watershed management, effective water treatment processes and continued investments in R&D, Singaporeans have been enjoying good quality water for the last five decades. Singapore’s tap water is well within the World Health Organisation drinking water guidelines, and is suitable for drinking without any further filtration. - See more at: http://www.pub.gov.sg/water/Pages/de....d9BHzkjK.dpuf

not necessary PUB certified our sg tap water is potable except PUbin.

Uproller 12-05-2016 10:59 AM

Singapore's water is safe enough to drink straight from the tap. Don't need to waste money on expensive equipment.

MLM advertising spotted :vijayadmin:

tfkmueh 12-05-2016 11:07 AM

Using 3M AP complete, cost for replacement about $120 & its 1 tube only, not like some RO filter 3-5 tubes.

also its used in hospital to filter viruses out.

TROLLER 12-05-2016 11:09 AM

No need expensive ones. All those MLM systems just jiak $$$

Using Brita myself, cheap and good.

If really need a lot of volume, can follow this sg researcher's recommendations here: http://waterqualityinsingapore.blogspot.sg/

A lot of MLM companies always go around BTO estates now. Claimed to be accredited but if you check closely, those type of accreditation usually is ownself give ownself, from commercial entities, not government body. Don't be conned.

Edit: Actually tap water is good enough if want to save money :P

Moi use simple filter to the tap to filter out the rust. It really works as you can see the dirt trapped after a few months.


All this high tech stuff is it good?

Big Eyes! 12-05-2016 03:06 PM

Do you guys use a filter because you drink directly from the tap? If you boil water, so you still need a filter?

Just like to share what i found and had bought for home water filter system.

after doing some intensive research over 2 weeks. i decide for APEC 5 stage reverse osmosis under sink water filter.


i was torn between using expresswater or APEC. But from reviews both in amazon and outside, it seemed APEC is the preferred model. but expresswater comes cheaper and with extra water filter !

I have left the UV light option out as i think ours is considered city water that is already well treated and besides i do not want complication of getting the wiring for uv light and if anything wrong i gotta fix the uv.


however, since i cannot find a company here selling, i will have to diy install. i manage to get a plumber who say he can install but regarding the kitchen top faucet, he need my kitchen contractor to install the faucet, the rest he can do. so YES!


i bought from amazon and ship via forwarder. Not sure if free shipping Singapore , like not .

I've been thinking about getting one for my new home, just a basic under-sink type that connects directly to the existing kitchen faucet, not those that require adding a "drinking water faucet". Might not use it long-term, just that with new BTO new pipings etc, it takes time for it to be decently clear of rust and other sediment ... we have members of the estate group who shared pics of their filters, 2 months+ usage filter already looks like time-to-change, months before the recommended change interval.

I am still undecided on which to get though, from reviews people who use the 3M ones report drop in water pressure ... it's supposed to be normal, but still ... :o
