Question: Is it worth buying a Brita water filter, does it save more money than buying bottled water!?
Ok, I'm not sure where you live and all, but where I live the water is very hard and full of chemicals!. I went out and bought a Brita water filter, both the kind you put on your faucet and the kind that you just fill up (like a pitcher)!. Let me tell you when I went to replace those filters !.!.!. ICK! I was so glad my kids weren't drinking that water!. A replacement filter typically comes in a package of three and is about $30 dollars (that's about an estimate because I get mine at BJ's and you can get like six to ten for like $40 dollars, so I save like $10 to $20 bucks)!. A filter lasts about hmmm !.!.!. three months with my yucky water (there is a little thing on the faucet filter that tells you when you need to replace the filter)!. The pitcher one lasts about 40 fill ups!. So in my opinion, YES, it's worth it and much cheaper than buying bottle water (plus you'd be helping the environment because you wouldn't be buying more plastic)!.

Always do your research and compare!. Good luckWww@FoodAQ@Com

Most municipal water is already filtered and heavily tested, so you don't really need to filter it!. If you must, Brita is much better than bottled water because the energy and plastic used in creating the bottles, the energy used in transporting it, and the waste produced by the bottles is horrendous for the environment!. If you want to reduce your carbon footprint, drink tap!. If you're paranoid about what's coming out, get Brita!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Yes if you insist that the h2o tastes bad, or bad 4 u then, YES, by all means get the filter!. The bottled h20 is often just tap h20 with expensive marketing behind the labeling!. One thing is for sure those plastic bottles are petroleum products (that we never needed to be using to begin with), and they sit for eternity in the landfill!. The filter will filter out what ever the bottled h2o claims to not have and will not have the environmental impact and waste of bottled h2o!. Think of all the energy that goes into making those bottles, and the transportation cost to move it!. Drink from the faucet!.

I personally want the minerals (calcium) in our tap h2o!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

if you buy lots of bottled water, then in the long run, it will save money!. Of course there are downsides to a brita!. The filters cost quite a bit and the water takes a while to filter, and it's always in a pitcher form!. You need to find containers for the water if you are always on the go!. But I love Brita pitchers for sure!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

well you can get cases of bottled water for less then 5 bucks!. :] but then again you can spend as much money on a brita as much as you would spend like a years worth of water bottle cases!. it's your call!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Yes!! You also take care of the environment by using less plastic and energy costs by water manufacturing factories
