Being pregnant, I go through more water than most fish. You can usually spot me with a bottle of water in my hand whenever I’m out and about, or at home.
But those bottles of water get really expensive. And, because the kids see me drinking bottles of water, they want to drink them too. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great that my kids want to drink water. I’m not complaining about that at all. But, with 5 kids, a husband, and myself, we go through a 24 pack of bottled water a day. That adds up, even if we buy the store brand bottled water.
I’ve tried water pitchers in the past, since I know it’s not environmentally friendly to go through that many bottles of water. But, replacing their filters could be pricey. I felt like I was constantly changing the filters and always spending more money. To me, it just wasn’t worth the hassle or hefty price tag.
Thanks to Mom Central, I had the opportunity to review the Filtrete Water Pitcher. I can’t believe how different this pitcher is than the others that I’ve tried in the past. First of all, it fills up super fast. There’s no waiting around for it to fill up. I love that! Second, it doesn’t take up a ton of room in the fridge. It fits nicely in the door, and I save way more space than when I have bottles of water in there. And third, the filter lasts for 3 months – or 100 gallons. It probably won’t take us 3 months to get to 100 gallons, but I love that it goes that long.
I ended up buying each member of the family their own reusable water bottle. Since the kids like drinking straight from water bottles, and I like having something that I can take on the go, I figured it would be the perfect solution. The water bottles were a hit, and the kids drink more water than ever now.
The water from the pitcher tastes great, too. I haven’t had any complaints from anyone in the family, and I can definitely tell a difference between water from the pitcher and water straight from the tap.
Another great feature the Filtrete Water Pitcher offers you is a button on the top that changes color when it’s time to change the filter. There’s no second guessing about when you need to buy a new filter, and no changing filters too soon or too late.
And if you want even more assurance, you can sign up for Filtrete’s Clear Advantages and get reminders sent to your email address alerting you when it’s time to change the filter. That’s not all you get with the Clear Advantages, either. There are all sorts of tips and tools for creating a healthier home.
Overall, I am quite impressed with the Filtrete Water Pitcher and would recommend it to any family out there. If you’re drowning in a sea of plastic water bottles, or if you’re tired of constantly changing the filters in other water pitchers, you should definitely give Filtrete a try!
The Fitrete Water Pitcher can be purchased at most retail stores: Walmart, Ace Hardware, Home Depot, etc., or you can also purchase it online at Amazon.com, Walmart.com, and many other online retailers. The full list can be found on the Fitrete Website: Where to buy the Filtrete Water Pitcher
