Thread: What kind of water do you drink?

    I recently switched from bottled water and bought a PUR faucet filter... I love it

    We use to have a filter on our faucet. It saved a lot of money. and was not too terribly expensive. We went for one that had the most filtration. They have varying kinds. We are looking into getting another one. It finally broke and then we moved. We have well water not city water. Has a lot of minerals and is tasty. There is one filter on the water system already for the red clay dirt. but not all of it is filtered out.

    I do not drink bottled water except when traveling.

    Bottled water is the best bet for quality and purity in my opinion

Buying bottled water is just too expensive and most is filtered tap water anyway.--eak
    There are 5 stages to a reverse osmosis system: 1) sediment, 2) first carbon block, 3) second carbon block , 4) membrane, and 5) fine carbon.

    The 5th stage is the same type of filter as your Brita pitcher filter. You don't need two of the same filter.

    Reverse osmosis is pure water at the lowest cost and best for the environment. You can add a mineral stage to a reverse osmosis filter to get your FIJI-like taste at a fraction of the cost without polluting landfills with plastic bottles. You just have to maintain the filter replacement schedule.
