So, you want to get a filter for your drinking water, right?
But maybe you don't want something you have to refill all the time, and you don't want the hassle of installing a system to your plumbing.
If that's the case, you'll want to check out the countertop water filters in this review.
Are you concerned about the quality of your drinking water?
Maybe all the news stories about contaminated water supplies has you worried. It's a legitimate concern. After all, clean water is essential for good health.
The next time you reach for the faucet to refill a plastic water bottle, stop and consider the risks first.
Bottled water is packaged in containers intended to be used one time and then thrown away or recycled. The same goes for plastic soft drink bottles.
As many as 63 million people — nearly a fifth of the United States — from rural central California to the boroughs of New York City, were exposed to potentially unsafe water more than once during the past decade, according to a News21 investigation of 680,000 water quality and monitoring violations from the Environmental Protection Agency.

That's a pretty shocking statistic, isn't it? It's no wonder that more people all the time are turning to water filters to protect their health.
Everybody knows what air pollution is, right?
Haze and smog hanging over a city, smokestacks spewing out chemicals, clouds of exhaust fumes pouring from cars and trucks...
Those are good examples, but guess what?
Air pollution isn't limited to just the outdoors.
Are you still buying expensive, synthetic chemicals for countertop cleaning from your local supermarket?
Of course you want to keep your kitchen countertops clean and free of germs and bacteria. After all, they come into contact with the food you eat.
But there’s no reason to spend money on expensive cleaners that might be full of harmful ingredients.
You probably know that distilled water is good for aquariums, car batteries, and clothes irons.
But is it good for humans? Should we be putting it in our bodies?
Lead in drinking water is "one of the greatest environmental threats we face as a country."
So said Scott Pruitt, head of the EPA, earlier this year.
He also said that the agency hopes to eliminate the problem in the next ten years, but apparently there is no plan in place to accomplish that goal. Hmm.
Are you concerned about lead in your drinking water?
If so, I have a suggestion for you. Don't wait around for the government to fix the problem for you. You might be waiting for a long, long time.
