Home Water Filters - Cheaper Than Bottled Water?

Mar 29, 2008
Over half of the American population are concerned about the health risks of their tap water. These concerns have made bottled water a $15 billion a year industry. Some bottled waters can cost as much as $21 a gallon but with the installation of a home water filter, safe, clean water can cost just pennies per gallon.

Here are a couple of the major water filter system suppliers:

Brita - Since 1966, Brita has been a leading expert in water filtration. Brita filters use an activated carbon and ion resin to trap 98% of the impurities in regular tap water. Their filters are very effective at removing the taste and odor of chlorine and contaminates such as lead and copper. The name Brita is synonymous with water filter pitchers which are used in countless homes today. The company also manufactures a faucet mounted filter and filters that hook directly into your refrigerator, for clean water and ice. You can always have clean, cold water with the Brita water cooler, which connects directly into the plumbing of your home.

Whirlpool - All of the Whirlpool water filters are tested rigorously and are State and NSF certified. The NSF performs extensive lab tests to ensure the quality and performance of water filters. Whirlpool offers products to provide clean water straight from the tap, your refrigerator and they even have several whole house systems to choose from. Their Gold Central Filtration System is so advanced that it even cleans itself, supplying a continuous source of clean water with no maintenance! The Whirlpool filters are designed to remove the bad elements from your water without removing the good ones such as fluoride. Most water filters will only last a month or two, but most Whirlpool filters will give you six months of clean water before needing to be changed.

It's easy to provide crystal clear drinking water for your family with a home water filtration system. Most don't even require any tools to install and many of the filters will provide months of filtered water before needing to be replaced.
