EP16: How to Choose the Right Water Filter

Today we’re going to be talking about the importance of filtering your water, and I’ll share the important steps you need to take to figure out what the best water filter is for you. Because there are a lot of options out there, and everyone has their opinion… but before you go down the rabbit hole there’s a critical piece of information you need: what are you trying to remove from your water in the first place?

Not all water filters can remove the same contaminants. And a lot of systems that I see get recommended as filters – like alkaline water machines – don’t remove contaminants at all. So we’re going to talk through the key things you need to know about what’s in your water, and what your options are for treatment.

We’ll cover the 3 questions you need to ask about your municipal water, things you must address if you’re on a well, and how to find the best water filter that will meet your needs.
