It's so hard to compare water filters without having all the facts...
so here they are!

Basically when you compare water filters
what you want to look for are
the following:

  • Which and how many contaminants does the filter reduce?
  • What is the cost of operation? This includes the initial cost and the cost of operation over time, factoring in the cost of replacement filter cartridges and what kind of warranty the item has (how long it is expected or guaranteed to last).
  • Is it NSF Certified? (NSF is a consumer watchdog organization that examines, analyzes and certifies water filters as to whether they do what they say they do.
  • Does it have a Satisfaction Guarantee? (Can you easily return it if it does not live up to your expectations?)
  • What is the warranty on it? 1 to 6 months? A year? Lifetime?
