What Kind of Water Filter Do You Use?
I’m about to make a sort of serious confession: My water filter broke about six months ago (or has it been a year?) and I have yet to replace it. Hopefully some among you will say “No big deal” but the truth is, it is and we all know it. Tap water beats out bottled every time in my book, and it’s what I drink all day every day unless I’m at an airport. At work, we have some fancy water filter in the kitchen. When I get to the office in the morning, I fill up a pitcher and I drink the stuff all day long. At home, though, I drink straight from the tap. I haven’t died yet, but given how much we know about contaminants in tap water, and how easy it is to filter it, I don’t have much of an excuse other than… Woops!
But I’d like to fix that, and I’d like your advice and so, incidentally, would our reader Leigh, who emailed us just today asking us for recommendations. If Alexandra wasn’t hiding away at a yoga retreat right now (I’m next!), I’d have her handle this one. But I’m at a loss. I’d like to know about a filter that’s BPA- and PVC-free and can get as much crap as possible out of my water without me having to splurge on a reverse osmosis system, which, as a renter, is completely impractical.
And so, we want to know (and pay attention, because this is a two-parter):
1) What filter do you use for your drinking water?
2) WHY do you use that particular kind of filter?
