Water Filtration

The Kitchen and Bath Design Store sells and installs all ever pure Commercial Grade Water Filtration products for your home. The following information we hope will help you make an informed decision about the drinking water for your home.

Water Facts

Water is a basic necessity; no living thing can survive long without it. Next to the air we breathe, water is our most important resource for existence. While it may seem that there is an abundance of water, when you consider the composition and availability of the earth’s water a different picture emerges.

  • 75% of the earth is made up of water. However –
  • 97% of that water is salt water, which means that –
  • 3% of the earth’s water is fresh water. But –
  • 2% of that fresh water is frozen in icecaps and glaciers. Which leaves –
  • 1% of the water on the entire earth available for human consumption.

The human need for water

A few facts about human water usage put our vital need for clean, safe water in context:

  • Humans are comprised of 55-60% water. –
  • We can survive more than a month without food, but only a week without water. –
  • The average person in the United States uses about 80-100 gallons of water per day. –

For good health, it is recommended that the average adult consume 8-12 cups of water per day. A more precise individual estimate of your water needs can be calculated by multiplying your body weight x ½ ounce. (Ex. 150 lb person x 0.5 ounces = 75 ounces of water per day.) Not all of your daily water consumption needs to come from plain water. Fruits, vegetables and non-caffeinated drinks also contribute to your daily tally. Of course, during exercise or on hot days, you should drink more water to avoid dehydration.

While many under-sink filters contain activated carbon, the carbon membrane does not remain in contact with water long enough to sufficiently remove these problematic contaminants. Some consumers concerned with these hazards turn to bottled water as a solution. However, many companies simply bottle filtered tap water with no systems in place to test and treat the presence of these hazards. Since reverse osmosis is exoribitantly expensive to execute on large-scale supplies, drinking water treatment plants frequently employ chlorine, a chemical that may make pharmaceuticals even more toxic to humans. Therefore, bottled water and instant filtration cartridges are not adequate protection against today’s complex drinking water contaminants.

A few of our top selling water filtration systems for your home.


The Everpure H-300 system delivers healthful, great tasting water every time. Designed with the unique Micro-Pure® technology, the H-300 reduces the following contaminants:

  • Lead to below the Federal Action Level of 15 ppb
  • Cysts such as Giardia lamblia, Entamoebahistolytica and Cryptosporidium parvum
  • Volatile Organic Chemicals (VOCs), including THMs

As well as the following substances:

  • Chlorine taste and odor
  • Dirt and cloudiness
  • Mold and algae
  • Oxidized iron
  • Oxidized manganese
  • Oxidized sulfides –
  • Particles 1/2 micron and larger in size


The Reverse Osmosis System II utilizes the S-101 carbon block pre-filter to reduce chlorine tastes and odors and other particulate matter in the water. The system’s Thin Film Composite (TFC) reverse osmosis cartridge then filters the water down to .00001 microns. This method of filtration reduces contaminants such as arsenic, lead, copper, sodium, nitrates, fluoride, cysts and TDS. The ROM II features a normal production rate of 14.4 gallons per day at a 1/2 gallon per minute flow rate.


The Reverse Osmosis System III employs the same water filtering capabilities as the ROM II, but adds another level of protection against volatile organic chemicals and MTBE that may exist in the water. This method of filtration also reduces contaminants such as arsenic, lead, copper, sodium, nitrates, fluoride, cysts and TDS.
