Drinking more water is something all of us need to do more of. The problem is what comes out of your tap may not be the best for you depending on where you live. Lead, mercury, pharmaceuticals, bacteria, and other harmful contaminants can be lurking in your water supply and you may not even know it. A simple pitcher with a built-in filtering system can keep your family safe from nasty bacteria and toxic contaminants.

Water quality, the number of people you need to serve and the design of the pitcher are all things to consider. Here are some tips that will help you find the pitcher/filter that’s just right for your family.
