I live in an area that has horrible tap water. HORRIBLE.
As a kid, we drank water from the tap. And I hated it. I didn't like the taste at all.
Now as an adult, I realize why growing up I didn't enjoy drinking water.
Because the quality of the water from the tap was horrible.
Like it is now.
When the Hubs and I bought our first house in the desert, we invested in an RO system.
I must tell you that the water tasted wonderful.
But I thought water didn't have a taste, you ask?
You'd taste the difference if you'd been drinking tap water your whole life.
When the kids and I moved here, I didn't want to have to buy bottled water every week - it's so darn HEAVY!
My solution? One of those water filter systems.
But we drink a lot of water when we're home and this little container just couldn't keep up.
So I started to research other water systems.
I mean, the kids and I mainly drink water. We don't do a lot of juice. We don't do soda. Yeah, we're pretty boring.
I realized that one system I'd read about was far better than any other I could find at a regular store (versus getting something online).
And after a week of contemplation? I bought it.
Yes, I did!
In this scenario, bigger is better.
What's even more interesting is that this particular unit came with a water testing mechanism.
I tested water from the tap and it registered 464.
I tested water from my original unit and it registered 333.
I then tested the new unit and it registered 0. ZERO!
Needless to say, I am mighty impressed with the results.
And even though the filters cost 1 1/2 times of the original unit, I think the end result it worth it.
Less junk in my kids' system, you know?
Everything I do is for them...
