Although it is part of our everyday life, many of us do not often think about the water we use. Even though we drink it and use it for cooking all the time, its actual cleanliness may still be a mystery. After all, if it looks clean, you might figure that it must be totally safe to drink.

Depending on where you live, water cleanliness can be a potential problem. Even if you are not totally sure about how pure your water is, it can be a good idea to look into water cleaners that allow you to filter tap water and give you peace of mind about your family's drinking water.

If you are considering different ways of cleaning the water in your home, begin your quest with some careful research. The various companies and water purifier models available all offer their own unique features, so decide what you need beforehand so you don't buy something that doesn't suit your situation.

Although water cleaners all perform basically the same task, the way they go about it can vary. There are different styles of water purifiers, and you can use one or several of these models to keep the water safe to drink.

One of the most popular methods for cleaning water is a faucet filtration system. This set-up cleans water as it comes out of the faucet using a filter that removes particles, odor, and improves the taste of your water. The replaceable filter can be used for a certain amount of gallons of water before it will need to be switched out.

If you like to always have cold, fresh water at your fingertips, a filtering pitcher may be more your style. These pitchers have an area that you can fill with regular tap water. The water then goes through a filter and into the pitcher itself, ready for you to drink and enjoy. Remember to replace the filter as often as recommended by the manufacturer for best results.

Other water cleaning products are ideal for outdoor or emergency situations. Portable water filters are easy to take along with you or have stored away in case of an emergency, and can filter out microorganisms that may be harmful to you. These filters are lightweight and convenient.

If having clean water available is a concern for you, think about setting up a water cleaning system in your home for quick and easy water purification.

We have used the Brita pitchers for over 2 decades now, ever since they first became available here in the USA. Wanting even cleaner water, we recently switched to the powered pitcher, AQUASANA. They also make other types of water filters (faucet, whole house). I will still keep my Britas in the pantry for when the power goes out.
