Pay Less for Clean Water
Here’s an earth-friendly AND money-saving idea: start filtering your own water! Filtering your own water reduces the number of plastic and glass bottles that we have to dispose of; even if they avoid the landfill, recycling has a carbon impact on our environment.
New Wave Enviro 10 Stage Water Filter
Each filter cleans 1500 gallons of water =
32 glasses of water 365 days per year
$113.99 = 8 cents per gallon
Replacement Filter Cartridge
$63.99 = 4.3 cents per gallon
The filtered water will also taste great because it will have many contaminates and additives removed.
The 10-stage filter removes:
• Chlorine and Chloramines
• Herbicides and Pesticides
• Hydrogen Sulfide (rotten egg odor)
• Microorganisms such as cysts, giardia, cryptosporidium, protozoa, etc.
• Heavy metals like lead, mercury, cadmium, etc.
• Organic Arsenic
That’s all fine and dandy, but you are probably wondering how big of a pain it will be to install a filtration system on your sink. Don’t worry, installation takes just minutes, requires no special tools, and you can do it yourself. You simply unscrew your faucet’s aerator screen (the part that the water comes out of) and replace it with the water filter diverter.
You may have to use a pair of pliers (hint: wrap your screen in a cloth before using pliers so you don’t mar the metal) but most of the time this can be done by hand. With the diverter in place you can choose when you are enjoying fresh tasting filtered water or when you just need hot water for the dishes.
So this Earth Day do something good for the planet and your pocketbook by investing in your very own water filtration system!
