The world’s cheapest water purifiers – and where they fit in
Posted May 06, 2019 09:57:14I use my home-based Aquila water purification system to flush out the tap when I need it most.
It’s not cheap, but it’s a bargain compared to a new water purifying system costing about $100.
The Aquila system I’m using for a family of four is built from the ground up to work at a fraction of the cost of a new system and comes with a free water filter.
I love my system.
But there are some problems.
First, it’s difficult to use the filters.
If you don’t have a good-quality water filter, you’ll get a muddy water taste and some mildew growth.
You’ll also get occasional watery spills.
I’ve had the filters leak out in my sink, so I’ve been making sure they’re sealed with silicone seals.
I also put the filter in the dishwasher every week.
It takes about two weeks to get the filter back in working order, so my family’s drinking water is not pure.
Secondly, there’s a catch.
You need to buy the filters online.
The price is $59.99 for one kit, or $99.99 per filter if you buy five or more filters.
(For a full list of the best and cheapest home water filters, click here .)
If you want to use my filter, though, you’re paying $59 a pop.
(My local water purifies at $40 a gallon.)
You don’t need to worry about leaks or spills.
You can buy the filter at your local hardware store, Walmart, Home Depot, or any local hardware shop.
I prefer to buy online because it saves me time.
The Aquila filters can take up to seven days to return to normal.
And, if the filter leaks or leaks in the sink, you can flush it out with a hose.
I also love the filters, but they’re pricey.
If I buy five filters, I pay $159.99.
But I can’t imagine buying them for less than that, and they’re not included in my Aquila plan.
I think the Aquila filter is a good value.
It won’t get you into the most expensive homes, but the filters will keep you in the neighborhood and help you avoid pollution and bacteria.
