Enjoy up to 651 gallons of pure clean water per filter that will taste all the sweeter knowing you'll never pay for bottled water again.
Each filter is 100% recyclable. And when it finally comes time to replace your filter, take comfort knowing it's already replaced 1500+ plastic bottles. Your filter can be recycled with hard to recycle plastics or #7 plastics, or check out our Recycling Program for more info!
Unlike other brands that remove beneficial minerals, Epic Water is filtered 'intelligently' leaving naturally occurring minerals such as calcium, magnesium and potassium intact.
Epic for Your Health
Our filter provides the purest, cleanest water and our highest quality 100% BPA-free, non-leaching Tritan plastic pitcher keeps it that way.
Tested and Approved Worldwide
Epic Water Filters have been independently certified and tested across the globe in both field and laboratory test in countries including the USA, UK, Australia and Japan. These rigorous processes are just another way we go well beyond what's required to deliver the cleanest, purest water possible.
Why Choose the Epic Smart Shield Filter?
*Note: Areas with high sediment levels (NYC metro area especially), and people who have well water or in an older home with old pipes), we recommend using our 5 micron Epic Smart Shield Sediment Filter (click here). This will prolong the life of your Smart Shield filter and it is a good idea even if you do not live in these areas to catch larger particles of dirt and debris before they reach your filter.
The dimensions of the Epic Smart Shield are 19 3/4" Tall x 4.5" Deep x 4 1/4" Wide. Remember, the Epic Smart Shield now comes with heavy duty Velcro tape so you no longer have to drill holes, this allows more people with tight spaces under their sink to install the Epic Smart Shield.
Goodbye Single use plastics: Each Epic Water Filter eliminates the need for up-to 1500 single use plastic bottles. Enjoy some of the cleanest water on earthing knowing that each sip is contributing to the reduction of single use plastics.
Partnerships: We are a proud contributor and strategic partner of the Inland Ocean Coalition (IOC) who works to raise awareness of the impact that micro-plastics (single-use bottles and straws) are having on our rivers and oceans. They remind us that you don't have to live by the ocean to care about it. Click here to learn more about them. You can also support IOC by purchasing our OG Special Edition IOC Bottle, proceeds go directly back to them.
Materials: We opt for materials that are gentle on the environment. Our packaging is 100% compostable, and we have a Filter Recycling Program to help you responsibly dispose of your used filters (and get rewarded for it). To learn how you can recycle your filter, click here.
We also like to reuse materials in our warehouse whenever we can do so safely so as to minimize our footprint and give a second purpose to materials that would otherwise end up immediately in landfills.
Giving Back: We believe in supporting others who are doing work that matters. As a 1% for the Planet Member, we commit 1% of our sales each year to give back to environmental organizations that are truly making a difference. We like to engage our local community in making a difference too, so we do monthly creek clean up’s to prevent unwanted waste from making its way from us to the ocean. We love where we live and we like to do what we can to keep it beautiful.
Recycle for rewards: Can our filters be recycled? Yes, they can! But it's not always easy to find a recycling center that will do so. We use Terra Cycle's Zero Waste Box for Filters so both the filter shell and the contaminants inside can be disposed of responsibly. Want to be rewarded for recycling your filters? Learn more here.
Really easy to replace the filter!
Love this. Love the installation. Love the filtering level. Love that I am not drinking garbage water. Love that I know I don't have to buy bottled water. Love that I can offer great water to my guests. I love it!
There has been a night and day difference in our water quality. We would highly recommend the sediment pre filter to extend the life of your smart shield filter. Easy to install once we got the feel of the push-to-connect pex. All in all 10/10. Will filter again.
Just as good if not better tasting than RO water
I don't know much about filters always had well water that had to be tested before buying the house, I am aware of public water contamination, that's why our water is being filtered, there is no problem with the filter system, I just hope that it's doing what it's supposed to be doing, and keep on working, thank you
