filter for prep sink + ice maker
Hi all, I know there is a lot of info on the forums re: filtration, but I'm struggling with this particular question. I've asked two plumbing supply houses for their recommendations, and have yet to hear back (it's been 1 week). My contractor has no opinion, and will install "whatever we choose", so no help there either.
We will have a cold water only bar sink next to our fridge, which has an internal icemaker. Ideally, I'd like to have a single faucet of my own choosing on the sink, which will likely only be used for drinking water. I'd also like to filter the water going to the icemaker if possible. We have municipal water that contains chloramine, and we prefer the taste of filtered water (currently using Brita pitcher).
Can I use one filter for both the drinking water & ice maker? Basically, put the filter on the cold water inlet, and then Tee off to the icemaker? Or do they need separate filters? I'm afraid it might get a bit crowded under the sink!
