Tastes like mineral water

Advantages: Easy to use, good taste, saves money and the environment
I have been using bottled mineral water now for many years, but have been found it inconvenient, can be expensive and creates a lot of plastic waste so decided to try a water filter instead.
I chose this one and am very pleased I did! It's a slim-line design suitable to keep in the fridge door and very affordable. I got ours at Asda for just £10 and it comes with one filter cartridge too.
I think it's easy to tell the difference between the taste of mineral and tap-water, but using this filter you can't tell the difference. It tastes and looks clean and seems to remove all hardness from the water.
The cost compared to bottled water is good too. One filter lasts around 30 days and you can buy a pack of 4 filter cartridges for around £10 (so £2.50 a month). In our household we would spend about £7.50 a month on bottled water so it's a huge saving for us even with the initial layout of the jug.
This model holds around 1.4litres of filtered water- doesn't sound like much? It's so easy to refill it doesn't matter! Just pop the top off and fill it up! It's got a strong handle so is comfortable to use, an easy pour spout and even a filter cartridge indicator to let you know when it needs changing.
The whole thing is easy to set up too. Wash the jug when you buy it, release any excess air from the filter by submerging it for a short time, put the jug together and slot the filter into the hole. Fill it up, replace the lid and you're done.
They recommend disposing of the first two jug-fulls when you buy it, to get more purity, but it filters a whole jug in just a couple of minutes anyway so this is no problem.
All in all a good investment. Saving money and the environment and safer for the whole family than ordinary tap or bottled water.
Summary: Easy to use, good taste, saves money and the environment
