"We like that the Aquagear is certified to eliminate an impressive list of contaminants (it’s one of the only gravity-based pitcher filters with the NSF-401 distinction). Aquagear also has a lifetime guarantee and its filter lasts longer than most pitchers: 150 gallons."
"Seventy bucks for a water filter?! Yes, and worth every cent; the Aquagear filters nasty chemicals like lead and chromium-6 and bad thoughts, whereas the Brita's filtration system basically just makes your water taste better. Since it can get annoying to sip out of a filtered bottle while you're at home, keep the Aquagear pitcher around for lead-free water at all times."
"The Aquagear water filter pitcher is ideal if you're looking to get the most impurities out of your drinking water. It's rigorously tested to meet the highest standards for contaminant reduction. A five-stage filter with two micron pores get rid of chlorine, but it also tackles 88 other contaminants like flouride, lead, chromium 6, chloramines, and mercury — unlike other brands. It does all of that while still leaving healthy trace minerals like calcium and magnesium in your water, and its slim design fits well in your space."
