Why Does Water Taste Sweet?

Water can sometimes have a sweet taste. This phenomenon can be influenced by various factors, including the type of water filtration system used, the mineral content of the water, and the treatment processes it undergoes.

Factors Influencing the Sweet Taste of Water

Water Filtration Systems

Different water filtration systems can affect the taste of water. Systems using reverse osmosis water filters under the sink, like Bluewater’s SuperiorOsmosis™ technology, remove up to 99.7% of contaminants, which can improve the taste by eliminating impurities​​​​.

Purification Technology

Advanced purification technologies, such as Bluewater’s 7x Advanced Purification, ensure water is free from unpleasant tastes and odours by removing a wide range of contaminants. This thorough purification can result in water that tastes purer and sweeter​​.

Popular Water Filtration Methods

Reverse Osmosis (RO)

Reverse osmosis systems are highly effective at removing contaminants. The Bluewater SuperiorOsmosis™ system, for instance, not only purifies water but also re-mineralises it to enhance taste​​.

Carbon Filtration

While effective at removing certain impurities, carbon filtration alone may not always result in the best-tasting water compared to more comprehensive systems like reverse osmosis​​.

Benefits of Using Advanced Water Filtration Systems

Improved Taste

Systems like Bluewater’s are designed to provide the best-tasting water by carefully balancing minerals and eliminating impurities that can affect taste.

Health Benefits

Properly mineralised water can contribute to better health by providing essential minerals like calcium and magnesium, which are important for bodily functions​​​​.


Advanced filtration systems reduce the need for bottled water, thereby cutting down on plastic waste and promoting sustainable living​​​​.

Types of Water Filtration Systems for Home

Under Sink Water Filtration Systems

These systems are installed under the sink and provide filtered water directly from the tap. The best undersink water filter systems ensure high-quality drinking water by using advanced filtration methods like reverse osmosis​​.

Whole House Water Filtration Systems

These systems filter water at the point of entry, providing clean water to every tap in the house. The best whole-home water filtration systems can handle a variety of water sources, including well water, and remove contaminants effectively. The Bluewater House Station 1™ is a prime example, offering superior purification with its unique SuperiorOsmosis™ technology, which removes up to 99.7% of contaminants, ensuring high-quality water throughout the home​​.

Shower Filters

Installing a shower filter can improve the quality of water for bathing, reducing exposure to chlorine and other contaminants. This can lead to healthier skin and hair. A good option is the TAPP Water ShowerPro Diamond Shower Filter, which effectively reduces chlorine and other impurities for a better shower experience. For more details, visit Tappwater.

Understanding Water Filtration Costs

The cost of a home water filtration system can vary based on the type and complexity of the system. For example, a reverse osmosis water filter system might have higher initial costs but offers extensive benefits in terms of water quality and health​​​​.


The sweet taste of water can be attributed to its mineral content and the effectiveness of the water filtration and purification systems used. Advanced systems like those offered by Bluewater not only ensure the water is pure but also enhance its taste through careful re-mineralisation. Investing in a high-quality water filtration system, such as the Bluewater purifiers, can thus provide both health benefits and superior taste, all while being environmentally friendly.
