The filters in your Puratap Purification System need changing every 12 months or 2000L of water, whichever comes first. Our filters have been put through vigorous scientific testing to find the optimal and safest time to change them.
After 12 months or 2000L of water, larger chemicals such as trihalomethanes and herbicides are able to bypass the carbon in the filter, meaning that it is no longer filtering effectively. Therefore 12 months is the maximum time to leave the filters in your unit.

Customer Reviews


“Basically a must have”

I recently got one of the new all-in-one taps fitted in my kitchen. It was a new build house so I wasn’t keen on the idea of having a separate tap. It looks great and works. Seriously the tap water at my house is awful and the Puratap is the only option. Its the only thing that makes it drinkable and the only company I trust! I have used them before and I will use them again.


“Fast and reliable”

Called about replacing an old, leaking tap and had a rep at the house within the half hour. Very fast, efficient work and would definitely recommend the service.

Lea and Matt,

“I like to support local!”

I have lived in a few different houses in the Adelaide suburbs and we have always had a Puratap. I really like supporting local businesses and they seem to give lots of local people jobs which I like. The water that comes out of it is good and my kids will drink it, so what more can you ask for!
