Found: This Water Purifier Makes Bottled-Quality Water Right In Your Own Home

Americans spend $16 BILLION dollars a year on bottled water, according to recent findings. Let’s do the math on that. If the average cost of bottled water is $1.27, that makes bottled water approximately 400 times more expensive than tap water.
 
Not that we’re advocating to drink tap water . . . because while there are mixed feelings about the safety vs. health risks of drinking tap water, there are many reports where they have found toxins, carcinogens and other dangerous contaminants present in tap water, like chromium, lead, chlorine, and mercury to name a few.
 

What’s Wrong With Bottled Water

Perhaps the above information is why bottled water is popular and why Americans buy so much of it. Yet beyond the budget-breaking expense of purchasing bottled water, all that plastic is a serious environmental concern.
 
Most plastic water bottles are made with PET (polyethylene terephthalate) which is derived from crude oil. Yikes! That doesn’t sound appetizing to drink from, right? Beyond that, plastic water bottles are distributed all over the world, using mostly fossil fuels to manufacture them, creating a high risk of contamination.
 
Finally, after you’ve finished drinking that bottle of water, if it doesn’t get properly recycled, can take up to 1,000 years to break down due to its chemical composition. And, billions of plastic water bottles are dumped into our our soil, lakes, rivers, and oceans. Sadly, a large part of this waste winds up in the ocean, causing a huge threat to marine life.
 
Jacqueline Savitz, an official representing a marine advocacy group, says that “We know plastics are building up in marine animals, and this means we too are being exposed, some of us every day.”

The Health Risks of Drinking Bottled Water

Ironically, many people choose to drink bottled water for the common misconception that it’s a safer alternative to tap water.
 
Yet the media has recently released disturbing findings that plastic particles have been found in the world’s leading bottled water brands. These plastic particles have caused “widespread contamination” – plastic was found in 93% of the samples tested.
 
 

So What’s the Solution?

If we can’t rely on bottled water, and we want to keep costs down without resorting to tap water, the solution is in filtered water. But most store-bought filters or fridge filters only filter for taste – they don’t necessarily purify and make the water safe to drink.
 
If you want a water filter that can remove all the toxins in your tap water and also taste pure like bottled water (but without the plastic!), you need to use a filtering process known as reverse osmosis.
 
AquaTru is a countertop water filter and purifier that uses reverse osmosis technology to remove toxic chemicals from your tap water.

The AquaTru™ filter has a four-stage purification process that removes contaminants like fluoride, lead, pesticides, drug residues, and other toxins and chemicals. It removes 15 times the amount of contaminants than leading store-bought filters and is certified to NSF standards (the National Standards Institute of Public Health).
 
It’s easy to use, low maintenance, saves you money and drastically cuts down on harmful contaminants, waste, pollution, and your carbon footprint. For those living a healthy, natural and conscious lifestyle, choosing a water filter over bottled water is important.
 
We’ve had the opportunity to try AquaTru for ourselves – and we use it in our office daily. From the high-tech reverse osmosis purification process, the eco-friendly aspect, to how great the water tastes, how well designed and easy to use this countertop water filter is, we recommend AquaTru as a safe, effective, and affordable alternative to bottled water or other water filter options.
