How to Buy a Water Filter Pitcher

If the title of this blog post sounds familiar, it’s because we did one similar to it a few months ago, specifically on Brita and Mavea brand water pitchers. But that post was more about how to choose a water filter pitcher based on certain criteria. Once you’ve made your choice, you should know the best way to go about actually buying one. We recommend following these simple steps:

1. If you haven’t done so already, read our post on “How to Choose a Water Pitcher Filter.”

2. Organize the three considerations listed at the bottom of that post (contaminant removal, affordability, and design) by order of importance. Which of these is most important to you when deciding which pitcher to buy?

3. Check out our Buyer’s Guide on Pitcher Filters and click on the recommendations listed throughout the article for more information on each one.

4. Decide which water pitcher is best for your needs, go to the Filters Fast website, and add it to your shopping cart.

5. Complete the checkout process at FiltersFast.com. Be sure to go ahead order some backup compatible replacement filter cartridges while you’re at it!

There you have it. It’s that’s simple, folks.

Okay, so now that you’ve made it to the end of this post, we have a confession to make. Our main motive for writing this was to let you know about our Buyer’s Guide on Water Filter Pitchers. The only real difference between choosing and buying a water pitcher is step #5 – where you buy it from. In any case, we hope our Buyer’s Guide was able to point you in the right direction toward an informed decision. Until next time…

Are you a bottled water addict?

Sure, we all love to go into a store and walk out with water sourced from a mountain spring, cove, lagoon, glacier or iceberg and then poured into a plastic bottle. One of the reasons so many people love bottled water is its convenience. It’s certainly easy to pick up a bottle at a gas station or grocery store, but bottled water is anything but easy on our wallets and our world.

There is nothing inherently wrong with bottled water in moderation. The real problem arises when you rely on bottled water as your only water source, and allow it to control your every action.

You cannot overcome your bottled water addiction until you realize you have a problem. Read through the following questions and see how many you can relate to.

  • Do you ever drink bottled water by yourself?
  • Have you ever lied about how much bottled water you drink?
  • Do you avoid places where bottled water isn’t served?
  • Do you regularly drink bottled water upon waking or before sleeping?
  • Does the thought of having to drink tap water scare you?
  • Do you find it impossible to live without bottled water?
  • Do you drink bottled water to have a good time?

 

How to Break Your Bottled Water Addiction

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may be a bottled water addict. Don’t worry, you can beat bottled water. Take up a new hobby to keep your mind away from it. Avoid places that serve bottled water, and also don’t hang around any “friends” that drink it.

But the best way to beat bottled water is surprisingly simple, and won’t even require you to take up fencing or shun your friends and family. Just filter your tap water.

What, you don’t like the taste of tap water? It might surprise you to know that many bottled waters are nothing more than filtered tap water, often taken from the same municipal water supplies that send water to your home. It’s probably more accurate to say you don’t like the taste of the chlorine disinfectant many municipalities use to rid your water of harmful contaminants.

Several water filters will remove chlorine, and many other contaminants as well. Consider purchasing a water faucet filter,  which mounts easily to your kitchen sink – no tools required. If your refrigerator comes equipped with a refrigerator water filter, ensure that you change it out regularly. If you want to have ice cold water at a moment’s notice, fill up a water pitcher filter  and throw it in your fridge.

Isn’t it actually more convenient to have water that you know is clean, healthy and delicious in your very own home?

“But I can take bottled water with me wherever I go,” you say.

With a Klean Kanteen water bottle, you can now take your filtered tap water with you wherever you go. These stainless steel water bottles are BPA free, which is more than we can say about many plastic water bottles out there.

Take comfort in knowing there are many others out there on the road to recovery. It’s a tough road, but one that is easily travelled with clean water and a Klean Kanteen. We’ll walk with you.
