You compare & choose.


Water usage is essential in our daily lives. Aside from drinking, we also need it for domestic use, food production or recreational purposes. That’s why the usage of safe and readily available water is a much better option for our health. 


According to WHO in their web articles, usage of contaminated water and poor sanitation are linked to the transmission of diseases such as cholera, diarrhoea, dysentery, hepatitis A, typhoid and polio and are estimated to cause 485 000 diarrhoeal deaths each year. Climate change, increasing water scarcity, population growth, demographic changes and urbanization already pose challenges for water supply systems. 

This is why a water filtration system is important and needed in every household, factory and office to prevent this water-related disease and give equitable access to safe and affordable water that is free from chemical contamination.


In this article, we will list the top 3 outdoor water filters with the best quality and cheapest price in Malaysia. Then, we will let you compare and choose the best outdoor water filter that suits your criteria.
