How to choose a good drinking water filter jug?
Water pitcher with filters have become a preferable choice on many family’s countertop. They’re cost-effective, portable, and easy to maintain. Whether at home or in the office, your water filter pitcher will always deliver pure-tasting water.
Water pitcher jug for drinking water on the market differs in their capacity, size, color, and filter materials. Here are some guidelines to help you pick a suitable pitcher from the tons of options available.
1. Harmful contaminants removal
Most countertop water filter pitchers are designed to improve only the taste and odor of water, but Maxblue can do more. It reduces TDS – a feature that makes it superior to other products. However, the filter should be replaced once a month to achieve higher TDS removal rate and get rid of fishy & acidic taste.
2. Pitcher material
You can find the materials used in making the pitcher on the instruction manual. Only buy products with clear information on the manufacturing materials, because the toxic substances (if present) will seriously affect your health and overall safety. We recommend that you purchase BPA-free and lead-free materials.
3. Pitcher capacity
If you need a drinking water filter jug not only for yourself but also for the whole family use, please check the pitcher capacity and flow rate carefully.
A pitcher with a larger capacity guarantees more filtered water. A higher flow rate is necessary to reduce the time you wait for the pitcher to filter the water. You do not want to spend valuable minutes at your countertop waiting on a pitcher.
4. Size and maintenance
Prioritize products with a durable design. The durability must extend to all areas – the reservoirs, handle, lid, and even the jug. Watch out for the fit – a pitcher whose components are not 100% fit will cause leakage and waste water.
You should also consider how easy it is to detach the filter for replacement. If possible, get a countertop water filter pitcher with an auto-open lid – it will make refiling easier.
We recommend that you clean your pitcher once a week. This will eliminate any possible growth of harmful substance that may contaminate the filtered water. This is why you should get a water pitcher with a durable yet simple design that allows you access to every corner during cleaning.
You can ensure a product meets all these criteria by reading the product features carefully before placing the order.
