What Kind of Water & What Bottles?


Not all water is created equal.... Water these days has many contaminants including chemicals heavy metals, bio-unavailable minerals and microorganisms. So which type of water is best? Obviously filtered but which type? Bottled? Carbon? Jug? Ceramic? Reverse Osmosis? Spring water? The list goes on. 


Lets compare:

Bottled water

Con's -

  • Chemicals from the plastic bottle itself can leech into the water. 

  • In most cases, the water itself is no different than tap water. 

  • Bottled water costs more in many cases that drinking tap water.

  • Water bottles are a major source of consumer waste each year!

Verdict - Not the best option on price, taste, or health so skip it. That being said, having a bottle of water is very convenient, and there are some great sustainable options. Glass and steel water bottles eg. Kleen Kanteen


Jug/Pitcher Filters

Pro's -

  • Removes chlorine

  • Does not remove other important minerals.

Con's - 

  • Does not remove Pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals, fluoride, or emerging contaminants.

  • Requires frequent replacement of cartridge, so may not be the most economical solution in the long-run despite up-front costs


Reverse Osmosis Filters

Pro's -  

  • Removes heavy metals and unwanted contaminants.

  • Removes bacteria if treated with UV light. 


  • Bacteria, yeasts and parasites not removed unless speficially treated.

  • Removes good and bad minerals and therefore can be harfmul to your health.


Solid Block Carbon Filters

Pro's - 

  • Most effective at removing chlorine, asbestos, heavy metals, sediment, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), fluoride, taste and odor from water. 

  • Filters out nitrates/ites, bacteria, parasites and other chemicals. 

  • Great tasting water. 

  • Doesn’t require electricity or water pressure to work. 

  • Portable options can even be used while traveling.


In my reserach I have seen that the best filter to remove all microbes and heavy metals is the SOLID BLOCK CARBON FILTER with a second stage filter attached. This is your best bet!
