I have spent hundreds of hours researching and selecting the best water filters for almost any contaminant and type during the last two years of running this blog. I have researched and cherry-picked these so you can save your precious time and enjoy it spending time with your family.
As time went on, I have ended up with quite a long list of articles.
So, I have decided to create a roundup page to categorize and give you quick access to all the different products. I will be updating it regularly as I add more and more recommendations.
I am trying to cover a whole range of products and find the best possible solution for your needs. Some of these items are not necessarily the high end, simply because there is no need for that.
However, it doesn’t mean that they are bad, and often they perform better than more expensive products. This is why they deserve to be on the list.
So if you are looking for one go-to place, this is the place. Now let’s get started with the general picks I have made.
General Guides of Water Filters
As I said before, I have done plenty of articles for all needs. This also includes simple lists of only the best products.
If you just want to check out what filters are best in different categories, here is the list for you.
The following guide is for anyone who wants to compare all types of filters on the market.
Warning: It’s massive, but it covers every single aspect of the water filtration. You will find there an explanation of how various filters work and pick of the best in each category – whole house, under the sink, countertop, pitcher, and faucet mount.
Did you know there is a significant number of accessories and add-ons you can get for your filters?
I have created an article to cover all of these with an explanation of how you should use them.
Water Filters to Remove Specific Contaminants
Let’s say you have a specific contaminant in your house you want to get rid of. For example, often people complain that their water contains chlorine and fluoride from their local supply.
Don’t you worry, I have done the job for you here too. In the below selection, I have picked the best filters to get rid of both contaminants in seconds.
Lead is one of those sneaky contaminants that couldn’t be detected without the help of testing kits. Fortunately, it is easy to remove, and products in the following selection can do it easily.
The next two posts are dedicated to people who use well as the main water supply. Wells are very prone to have lots of sediment in the water. Iron is also a common issue of well owners. So if you are one of them, make sure to check out the following two articles.
Bacteria are everywhere. The good thing is that in the western part of the world, the hygiene standards are good, so most of the bacteria are not as dangerous. However, it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t neglect this aspect and let bacteria spread in your plumbing and water supply.
Water Filters for Unique Needs
For many people like me, the design plays an important part in their household. When you have just renovated a kitchen, you might not necessarily want to have a second tap of the reverse osmosis filter next to your sink.
The market has also thought about you. Check these filters now.
When I was a student, I found that having a pitcher right next to me was surprisingly a wise investment I have made. I was drinking healthy water, and what is more important, I drank more of it. What other benefits I have experienced, find out in my next guide.
If you ever wanted to feel like you are in a spa when taking a shower, some filters will do just that. You will feel refreshed and ready to start your day with a smile on your face or treat yourself after a long day.
Water Filter Comparisons
As time went on, I have people asking me which one of the two or three specific brands they should buy. So I have decided to share the thoughts that I have told them with you as well, in case you are in a similar situation.
The first comparison puts head to head three countertop units.
Second, I have decided to compare three reverse osmosis units for the given budget.
I am covering water softening topics on this blog extensively, talking about various aspects of the softeners. Nonetheless, there is no need to extensively talk about different products, because at the end of the day they all work on the same principle.
In this guide, I include the best salt-based softeners as well as salt-less conditioners. What is the difference? You will find the answer there.
If you want to have the absolute ultimate protection, head to my guide on the whole house filter and softener combo.
Water Dispensers and Bottles
I have also written a couple of posts on water bottles because, at the end of the day, this blog fights the bottled water industry. Rather than buying bottles of water, why not get your own bottle to carry everywhere.
If you are looking for a bottle with filter to take on trips or travel to places where water is unsafe head to this article.
Best Water Filters For Camping and Hiking
I get it, some people might not like the taste of plain water. Just read the next article and pick the infuser bottle.
I have also thought of kids and written a guide for parents to pick the correct bottle.
If you own a small business or just working in the office, here is the list of water dispensers that will be great for any office environment.
Alternatively, check out these countertop units which are connected directly to the tap.
Or if you prefer water dispensers for hot water.
As you can see, the list so far is quite big and will get bigger. I would like you to feedback to me on what products you would like to be reviewed.
