New Tap and Water Filter

We got our plumber to install our new tap and water filter today. 

This new water filter could not be attached to the old tap, so we had to change to a new one with a correct-sized outlet. Old tap was a goose-neck type, so it'll definitely be weighed down by the filter over time. 

New tap costs S$60. Water filter (Mitsubishi) costs S$160. Installation costs S$50.

We have had this water problem since we moved in. The water coming out from our kitchen sink has been littered with flakes like flattened fruits pulp or (gulp) human skin. It is unclear as to whether the HDB pipes were unclean or our interior installation did not do a thorough flushing out of the pipes before sealing them and handing the house over to us, but we worked around this by letting the tap run at high speeds for a while, then slowly filling up our pot with the water flowing at low speeds. This would reduce most of the flakes. We would then boil all the water we were going to drink.

Even though most of the visible flakes can be reduced, but it points to very possible impurity in our water supply. Finally after 2 years staying here, we decided to install a high-performance water filter. This would enable us to drink the water direct from the tap. 

One less thing off our chests!
New tap comes in a box! Inside is a fleece draw string pouch to house the new tap!

View from the bottom. Outlet on the right is unfiltered. Can switch between straight and multi-nozzled shower kind of water. Left outlet will dispense with the appropriate switch settings.
The old tap removed. Don't know what to do with this ;)

  3. It’s great that you guys finally decided to have a water filter. It’s a lot safer because it reassures you that the water you’re drinking is clean even if it came straight from the tap.
