If you would like the taste of filtered water but don’t feel like cluttering you refrigerator with water pitchers, using valuable counter space for a counter top water filter system, installing an under sink water filter system that may require you to know a little about plumbing, the Brita “On Tap” Faucet Filter offers the benefit of filtered water w/o any of those things.
Available in both chrome and white finish, Brita “On Tap” Faucet Water Filter features an electronic indicator light that changes from color when the filter gets within 2 weeks of needing replacement and flashes when the filter needs immediate replacement.
Brita claims the “On Tap” filter has successfully tested to NSF/ANSI Standard No. 53 and should last for approximately 100 gallons. This means the filter should effectively remove or reduce compounds and chemicals such as VOC, TTHM, O-Dichlorobenzene, lead, Cysts – Cryptosporidium and Giardia, asbestos, turbidity, carbofuran, alachlor, atrazine, heptachlor epoxide, 2,4-D, chlordane, trichloroethylene, lindane, methoxychlor, chlorobenzene, styrene, toxaphene, ethylbenzene, endrin, simazine, and carbon tetrachloride.
As we said, filters in the Brita “On Tap” Water Filter should last an estimated 100 gallons. Keep in mind, though, that actual filter life will depend heavily upon the quality of your source water.
Final words of advice?
Before investing in a water filter we suggest that you test your water to find out what, if any contaminants, your water contains. Otherwise you run the risk of purchasing too large/complex of a filter (and wasting money) or not purchasing the correct filter (and wasting money). Purchasing the incorrect filter will mean you have also wasted your time since unwanted contaminants will remain in your drinking water.
