Every great thing begins with a vision. For WasserTec, it started with four individuals’ foresight to tap into a growing and increasingly niche market for water filtration products in 2009. Armed with many years of experience dealing with water filters, Stephen Lee, Anthony Lee, Samuel Chua and Jenny Ong established the brand as one of the key industrial suppliers of water filter components. By 2012, it was supplying to major water treatment plants in Singapore.
WasserTec then started looking into the residential market. “We did a survey, and found that there was a demand for clean and safe drinking water among homeowners,” says Stephen, who oversees the overall operations at WasserTec. “But commercial filters were not only too bulky for homes, they were also too costly. So we wanted to create good quality and reliable filters that everyone can own at a fraction of the cost.”
As filter technology improved, WasserTec water filters for homes have also adapted with the times. From sediment and chlorine filters to alkaline and anti-oxidant water, WasserTec has always stayed attuned with the latest technologies, driven by the desire to bring safe and clean water into homes.
By purchasing a WasserTec product, you are assured of affordability without any compromise on the quality. One of their signature products is the DS-6 Mini Water Dispenser, which uses a four-stage ultra-filtration (UF) system that is able to effectively filter out impurities and chlorine from the water, keeping only the natural minerals valuable to the body. It also removes bad taste and odours via its carbon filter to leave you with a fresh and tasty drinking experience. Taking into account today’s small homes, the company has also made the DS-6 suitable for compact kitchens. It measures only 240x165x340mm, so it fits into your countertop without taking up too much space.
Another product highlight is the GE 2-Stage Undersink Water Filtration System, which, as its name suggests, is installed under your sink via a fuss-free and automatic “shut-off” and “push-to-connect” method. It features two filtration technologies: a carbon black and granular activated carbon to effectively reduce harmful chemicals, microorganisms, sediments, chlorine taste and odours to provide fresh and clean water for drinking and cooking.
Knowing that they are improving drinking experiences is what keeps WasserTec moving forward. “We are looking to focus on residential homes for now,” says Stephen. “There’s a need in the market and if we can bring clean and safe water to more people, why not?”
