  Home Water Filter (indoor & outdoor)
Posted by: zheilwane - 05-12-2017, 09:19 PM - Forum: Electrical & Home Appliances - Replies (4)

There are so many brands and type of water filters in Malaysia. So which one should we buy?

Outdoor filter, installed near to the water meter to provide clean water for the whole house. There are mainly 3 types of outdoor filters (POE filters)

OUTDOOR FILTER (POE FILTER)
1) SAND
[Image: QhdGqrX.png?1]
Sand filters are usually big with a diameter of 8 to 10" and some brands do have 12". Sand is the most widely used outdoor filters as it is cheap and with low maintenance cost (Rm 400 for 4 to 5 years). Moderate clean filtration around 5 - 20 micron. THe longer you use and the more you backwash, the filtration quality will drop overtime and hence require replacement and servicing. Popular brands with sand filter such as Waterco, Amway, Kinetico, Alphamax, Puregen and Perfect Steel (the only brand i am selling)

2) Membrane
[Image: fS5j1nU.jpg]

Demand for membrane filters is increasing due to the slim design and ultrafiltration 0.01 micron, making it the cleanest outdoor water filtration system. However, some membrane filters could look very ugly after installation, hence do not be deceived with the display unit, asked the seller to show some photos of the membrane filters after installation. The main disadvantage of membrane filter, is the reduction in water pressure due to the fine 0.01 micron filtration. If your water pressure is 2.5bar or more, you can safely use this without any problem. Brands that are using membrane system are Hydro1, Puregen, Aquarius, NESH, COWAY and MultiPore (the brand that i am selling)

3) Cloth
For Space Saving and less Backwash, you can get cloth type of filter. Either by removing the cloth for cleaning with a high pressure cleaner or by replacing the cartridge. This type is not very popular in malaysia except for Condo with limited space and does not allow  backwash.
Example such as Diamond & 3M AP902 (the brand that i am selling)

INDOOR DRINKING FILTER (POU FILTER)

Popular brands that you can find in the market such as Panasonic, Cuckoo, Coway, Diamond, Nesh, 3M, Amway, Aquaphor and many more. There are also brands with alkaline water or RO water. SO which 1 should we buy? it is so confusingFirst of all, do not get confused with the info given in catalog and also sweet talk from the salesperson.  Catalogs info and salesperson sometimes do overrate their products, giving wrong info to customers as well. Rule of thumb, asked what is in the filter, what media is used and then compare with other brands. For example, some brands are giving granular carbon but claim that it could kill bacteria or breakdown water molecules for better absorption or even cure cancer. Well, if you google check what granular carbon can do, it is mainly used to filter off chlorine, VOCs, heavy metal and etc, how could it breakdown molecules or even cure cancer, so if you know what is inside the filter and double check with google on what is the media for, you wont get conned?

I am mainly selling AQUAPHOR, it only produces clean water that is all, not RO or Alkaline or hydrogen water. If you would like to know more or have any queries related to other type of water filter, we could discuss in this forum Smile

  How to choose kitchen Hood, Hob & Oven ?
Posted by: zheilwane - 22-11-2017, 07:59 AM - Forum: Kitchen - Replies (33)

There are so many brands in the market, Electrolux, Elba, Rubine, Tuscani, Faber, Teka, Fotile, Whirlpool, Rinnai, Cornell, Bosch, Tellini, Lebenstill, Leben, Fujioh, Ikka, Pacific, Pacifica, Vees and many more. So which one of them is the best? Here is a discussion after reading and doing your own research, you decide which is the best.

1) Good Suction
High suction power does not equal to good suction. Many brands in malaysia actually over rate their suction power as there is no government body here to verify the figures. How do we check? Very simple, if the suction power is high 1400 - 1800m3/h, the hood will definitely be very noisy. So, check with the seller whether the hood has any added technology to reduce noise such as insulation? If no, then 100% the suction power is inaccurate.

2) Oil cup (dont use mesh filters)
Hood without oil cups are no good as mesh filters with many layers (4 - 7 layers) will be used to trap oil, preventing it from dripping. As the air inlet holes are very small to trap oil, the MESH gets clogged easily and restricting air flow. YOu might be using a 1400m3/h suction hood but when it is clogged, u will get less than 800m3/h.

My best recommendation will be FOTILE EMS9020, value for money with good performance. You can check my reviews with

4. Repair wiring
5. Build the brick wall to separate between the house and neighbour.

  Can you recreate the Ikea look?
Posted by: user - 08-01-2017, 11:32 PM - Forum: Furniture - Replies (1)

Went to Ikea Damansara last week and the place was jam packed. I noticed how almost everyone was buying something there.

Some bought enough to fill up a small lorry, others just a few decoration pieces to spice up the room. And many, somewhere in between.

Many of us (myself included) are inspired by Ikea demo set created in its showroom and wanted to recreate the same look-and-feel in our home.

How many of you are successful in re-creating the 'Ikea look' after purchasing and assembling their furniture?

  Think twice when choosing GS Metal Works
Posted by: MargaritaS - 09-07-2016, 02:39 PM - Forum: Grilles - Replies (2)

Just sharing this with fellow home makers :
Beware of GS Metal Works klang - the lock they installed on my gate was spoiled within three months of use. When asked for replacement, they charged for another lock plus workmanship fee Dodgy The sales person said it is not covered by warranty. What?!!

Due to no choice (I can't lock my door daily), I paid them to change the lock anyway. Only to find out that the Guchi lockset they use actually has a 5-year warranty written on the box.

Just be careful of this cut-throat GS Metal Works.
