I have never used that type of filter but I did fit a device on the incoming water supply to change the pH value of our water - mainly to stop it corroding copper pipes.
BRITA Maxtra -suodatinpatruunassa on ainutlaatuinen Maxtra-suodatus, joka poistaa kalkin 20 prosenttia BRITA Classic -patruunaa tehokkaammin.* Lisäksi se poistaa vesijohtovedestä veden makuun ja hajuun vaikuttavia ainesosia, kuten klooria ja alumiinia sekä raskasmetalleja (esimerkiksi kuparia ja lyijyä) sekä tuholaismyrkkyjä. Samalla se poistaa orgaanisia epäpuhtauksia. Vedestä tulee puhtaampaa, kirkkaampaa ja hyvänmakuista. Voit käyttää sitä kuumiin ja kylmiin juomiin sekä ruoanlaittoon. Samalla estät kalkin muodostumisen ja pidennät kotitalouskoneittesi käyttöikää.
*verrattuna BRITA-vesikannusuodattimissa käytettävään BRITA Classic -patruunaan (BRITAn standardoidun testausmenetelmän keskiarvo)
Each water filter tap uses the unique BRITA water filter cartridge to improve the taste, smell and appearance of tap water. These water filter cartridges have a unique mix of ion exchange resin and activated carbon removes not only chlorine but also limescale, heavy metals such as lead and copper and organic impurities. These water filter cartridges employ BRITA’s four-stage filtration process to ensure all cartridge contents are used efficiently, providing consistent water quality throughout the lifetime of the cartridge.

I can understand people wanting water filters I just didn't think it was necessary here. I'm curious.
Having lived in three different countries now and having travelled to a few I can say with totally honesty that Finland has the best drinking water I've ever ran across it's almost like drinking spring water. So I'm just a bit curious where people are living because I've yet to smell chlorine out of the taps where we live, I'm sure it's in there as I've done work in the water industry but I don't detect high levels of it.
I did live in one place where the water smelled like it came from a swimming pool. We had to filter the water as it was undrinkable.
