Here is a quick overview of the top water filter pitchers on Amazon.
As you may be aware, filtering your water has never been more important than now. Due to better and less expensive testing, we now know that tap water in the United States is across the board sub par to say the least. If you are curious and want to see exactly what’s in your tap water, visit ewg.org’s tap water database and enter your zip code. https://www.ewg.org/tapwater/
While it can be alarming to see all that’s in your drinking water, having that information puts you in a good position to do something about it. Now you know exactly what contaminants your filters need to be taking out!
So check out the list below, available through Amazon Prime, and see what best suits your needs! And yes, we included our pitcher in this list too because it’s a mean contaminant eating machine.
Water Filter Pitcher Amazon List:
- Brita Water Filter Pitcher: This pitcher has been around for a long time and has not changed much since it was first introduced before you were born. The filters are very inexpensive and you can find even cheaper knockoffs on Amazon if you are feeling risky! The pitcher uses a GAC filter and you know how we feel about GAC filters :) But Brita is a trusted brand, and while it’s not necessarily stellar on the contaminant removal front, a lot of users report that it greatly improves the taste of water. See on Amazon here.
- Pur Water Filter Pitcher: If Brita is the grandpa of this water filter pitcher amazon list, then Pur is probably the old uncle. Like Brita, Pur hasn’t made many improvements to their design, and they also use a GAC type carbon filter in their pitchers (Yikes). It’s definitely better than nothing, but we believe that filters should do a lot more than a GAC can, and there are plenty of other options that do. See on Amazon here.
- Nakii Water Filter Pitcher: If you think other pitchers on this list are light on contaminant removal and 3rd party testing then let me introduce you to the Nakii Water Filter Pitcher. We cannot find any third party testing on this pitcher for what it actually filters so we decided to make up things that it filters. It filters my bad self image, my friends on facebook who post gym pics everyday, the members of my family who show up to Thanksgiving with hot dogs (still in the package), bugs, and dirty looks. See on Amazon here.
A Better Option?
We thought you might want to check some filters that really make your water clean!
- Epic Pure Water Filter Pitcher: Boom! This is our solid carbon block pitcher filter that is focused on removing fluoride from the water as well as 200+ more tap water contaminants. All filters are replaceable and tested to the highest industry standards. Our pitcher filters are tested for and exceed NSF/ANSI Standards 42, 53, 401, & P473 for contaminant reduction (see Pure Filter Test Results for more). With each filter capable of purifying 150 gallons (568 litres) of water, the Epic Pure Pitcher is also a great economical choice saving your pocket book and the earth from single use plastic water bottles. (See on our site here or Amazon here)
- Epic Nano Water Filter Pitcher: This pitcher is lit!! A few years back, the United States was hit back to back by massively destructive hurricanes in Texas and Puerto Rico. That ignited something within us and we decided in that moment to design a pitcher that would remove bacteria, viruses, and cysts so that it could be used in emergencies but would then translate back into everyday use. How did we do it? We used our proprietary nano filter media in a water pitcher, which had never been done before (High 5!). And this provides a great option for those at home with well water, so you don’t have to come face to face with disaster to make use of this new filter. (See on our site here or Amazon here)
This Water Filter Pitcher Amazon List was super fun. We hope you find the water pitcher you are looking for and if your decision comes down to a tie, you should pick Epic Water Filters because we are clearly more fun than the others on this list. Yee-haw!!
