Water Filters

I am planning on buying a water filter. Any suggestions?

Hi,
we’ve got the eSprit filter at home, it’s quite good, i would advise you to take a look at it.

We use a plain old Brita in our house, though our municipal water is pretty decent. Are you thinking of a pitcher based or an undersink unit?

A faucet type is prefered

I use a Brita pitcher filter, and can tell you not to waste money on their faucet mounted models. The plastic attachment system was useless and caused a lot of trouble. Pur makes a fairly good faucet mounted type, but also is not great if you tend to bump into it with your dishes… A friend of mine took the plastic reducer that they supply to a hardware store and got a metal one instead for two bucks that made it much sturdier as a mount.

I also use Brita. Don’t have any problems ;)

I’ve used a brita for many years now… am very happy with it.

We’ve used a Brita depending on the water quality where we lived. I like it.

I can help with water filtration. We sell many types at our wellness center/tea shop and have for years. You don’t want a toy water filter. You want carbon not charcoal(brita, pur). I’d also highly recommend fluoride filtration. There are many units that work off of the faucet but sit next to the sink. Much larger filtration medium and you’ll only have to change the cartridge once a year, meaning you’ll spend alot less of replacement cartridges, get a much higher quality filter, much better tasting water AND the peace of mind knowing that your water is much much healthier. No biggy if you buy from us or not, I just want to see you get the best. You’ll only spend around $95 bucks to get set up with something WAY beyond the toy filters. You may phone me at 507.453.7941 or email at [email protected] I am happy to help you find the best for your money and being obsessed about my tea quality, I understand you want the best tasting tea, too.

I received a Pur faucet model as a gift. There is definitely a difference when you taste the filtered and unfiltered water. My tea will be much better now. Thank you all for your comments….
