Water filters are effective in removing contaminants from your water. I’m a huge fan of them and have used quite a number in my home and during my travels. I’ve found some to be more effective than others. With all the filters in the market today, I understand how torturous it can be trying to read all those online reviews so as to get the best filters to buy. Here, I try to make your work simple by giving you my best water filters for both home use and when traveling.

Best water filters for home

Water Pitchers


I’ve been using Brita Water Filter Pitcher for close to 4 years now and it has always impressed me. This durable pitcher is still as good-looking and efficient as it was when I first bought it. It still gives me the same pure drinking water it was giving me years back, without the awful taste of chlorine. I like its compact size which makes it fit perfectly in my fridge. It is affordable and will save you money you would have spent on gallons of bottled water. The only con of this pitcher is the black granules that form on top of the pitcher. However, these granules do not go to the compartment the filtered water goes to. The filtering is somewhat slow but not a big problem due to the quality of the water that filters through.

Countertop Water Filters


I have been using the Ultimate 13 -Stage Water Filter By BluPure for a few months now and I absolutely love it. I read some great reviews and decided to give it a try. It is easy to install. All the small parts fit well and easily, and the water tastes great.  I can’t say much about its durability since it’s only been a few months, but so far so good.

 Shower Water Filter


The Aquasana AQ-4100 Deluxe Shower Water Filter System with Adjustable Showerhead is an effective shower filter. The coconut shell carbon and copper zinc mix reduce chlorine, lead, mercury, iron, hydrogen sulfide, pesticides, herbicides, and other volatile organic compounds. From the moment you start using it, you notice a difference in the water. It smells and feels cleaner. The filter is easily mountable. The adjustable shower wand is a big plus. It is definitely worth giving a try.
