Prolong the taste using the latest Brita technology with Francis Pegler
The hugely popular Brita filter tap range from Francis Pegler now benefits from enhanced performance that adapts to differing water qualities.
Brita research has found that 53% of the UK population have expressed some disatisfaction with their tap water. With water qualities throughout the UK differing from region to region, a tap that combines the easy accessibility of drinkable water with a taste many consumers have come to love, plus a choice to now prolong the life of the filter, can only provide greater options for consumers in their kitchen tap requirements.
The stylish Strauna and Ceto taps, from Francis Pegler, boast three levers giving options for hot, cold or Brita filtered water. They each feature ceramic disk technology, ergonomic design and smooth, precise controls.
The new Brita P1000 filter cartridge now benefits from adjustable filtration performance according to the water quality. The cartridge will last on average three months in hard water areas but can be increased to six months by changing the setting for soft water areas. To assist users further, a lifetime filter indicator that lights red when the cartridge needs changing is included on all models.
"The delivery of water is key to maximising the benefits of Brita filtered water," says Tap product market manager for Pegler Yorkshire, Mike Dickinson. "That is where our knowledge and expertise is beneficial to ensuring the taps we design succinctly deliver filtered water to the consumer. The upgraded filtration is a huge benefit to users as those in less hard water areas will be able to increase the life of the cartridge."
Using Brita filtered water in kettles, irons and other domestic appliances can help to prolong the life of these products. With the build-up of scale formation being minimised there is an advantage to faster boiling kettles and lower energy consumption.
Francis Pegler Brita filtered taps have been made to the most testing of standards and both are WRAS approved to comply with Water Regulations, they come with a comprehensive five-year guarantee, and are manufactured in a quality chrome plated or brushed steel finish.
The Brita cartridge uses activated carbon to reduce chlorine, organic impurities and improve clarity, whilst ion exchange resin dramatically reduces water hardness which causes lime scale.
