Imagine never having to going to the store again to buy distilled water, and never having to recycle another plastic water jug.
Sounds too good to be true?
Having your own water distiller makes it easy to have a constant supply of pure water at home. Think of all the time and aggravation it would save you.
So maybe you're convinced that this is the way to go, but you're not sure what to look for or what your options are.
Well, let me help you out.
In this review, we'll take a look at four of the best selling distilled water machines available for home use in 2018. We'll talk features, prices, and pros and cons, to help you find the water distiller that's right for you.

Do you want to filter your water without going through the hassle and expense of installing a full-blown filtration system?
If your answer is "yes", then you might want to consider a water filter pitcher.
This kind of filter isn't as good as something like a reverse osmosis system or a gravity water filter, but it's better than nothing. And sometimes it's just not practical to have a bigger system - like at the office, or in a college dorm, or if you're traveling.
So if you've decided to invest in a pitcher water filter, the obvious question is
WHICH ONE IS BEST?

Are you looking for a gravity type water filter that works well but won't cost you an arm and a leg?
If you are, then you need to check out the Alexapure Pro water filtration system.
It's a stainless steel gravity filter that ranks right up there with Berkey and Propur, but it costs less to buy, and it costs less to maintain.
Did you ever meet an amazing person and you thought "Gee, they must come from a great family"?
And then you meet the family, and it turns out you were right!
Sometimes products can be kind of like that. You try one product and have a good experience with it, so you decide to try out another member of the "family".
Are you looking for a good reverse osmosis filter that won't cost you an arm and a leg?
The RO5DX 5 Stage Reverse Osmosis System from Express Water is one of my picks for the best reverse osmosis systems of 2017.
Like the rest of the top rated systems, it does a fantastic job of removing contaminants and making drinking water taste fresh and clean. But it's a good bit less expensive than the others.
If you want a good RO system but you're on a tight budget, I think it would be worth your while to take a closer look at the RO5DX. It might just be what you're looking for.
Did you know that reverse osmosis takes all of the minerals out of the water - including the beneficial ones?
It's true. And that bothers some people.
But the Home Master TMAFC Artesian Full Contact system solves that problem.
The TMAFC is one of my picks for the best reverse osmosis systems of 2017. It's a top rated RO system that remineralizes the water to raise the pH and make it less acidic.
I've written this in-depth review of the TMAFC to help you decide if it's the best water filter to meet your needs. We'll take a look at the features, how it works, how effective it is, and more.
If you've been shopping for a reverse osmosis system, you know there are a lot of brands and models out there to choose from. Doing the research takes a lot of time, and it can get pretty confusing.
Let me help you out.
After doing many, many hours of research myself, I've put together this review of what I think are the four best RO systems for home use as of January 2017. I hope it will clear up some of the confusion and set you on the right path to finding the product that meets your needs.

I'll admit it. I'm partial to Berkey water filters. I've owned one for over five years and I've been happy with it. It's the only brand of gravity water filter that I knew about.
But recently I came across Propur, a newer brand that's giving Berkey a run for the money.
