The best water filter pitchers in 2021
It’s obvious that people want to drink clean water. What’s not obvious is the best way to do that. A number of water filter pitchers compete for customers with claims of filtration technology and scary statistics about contaminants in drinking water. Cut through the murky marketing and take a look at the best water filters available today.
Brita Standard Everyday Water Filter Pitcher
Brita may be the best known water filter out there today, and its Standard Everyday Water Filter is the unimpeachable standard by which all others are judged. 26,000 Amazon reviewers can’t be wrong.
Brita Ultra Max
If the standard Brita isn’t big enough for your water chugging fam (or you just hate refilling it constantly) upgrade to the Brita Ultra Max, which has an 18-cup capacity.
ZeroWater is another popular option among Amazon customers. The 10-cup ZP-010 comes with a handy water quality meter to ensure you’re getting the filtration you need, as well as a handy spigot to make pouring easier.
ZeroWater ZD-018 ZD018
The 23-cup upgrade to the ZP-010, the ZD018 packs the same five-step filtration system that separates ZeroWater from the competition.
PUR Water Filter Pitcher Filtration System
The PPF900Z PUR water filter claims to filter twice as much contaminants as the OB03 Brita filter, but its easy to fill and easy to use design is obvious to anyone who picks one up.
Brita Longlast Monterey Water Filter Pitcher
The Longlast from Brita will hold up as long as you need clean water to drink, and it’s attractive design will easily fit in your packed fridge.
Waterdrop Elfin 5-Cup Water Filter Pitcher
The multistage filter on the Waterdrop pitcher is said to filter out arsenic, fluoride, lead, and other contaminants. Its long-lasting design should be good for 200 gallons of water, and an indicator will let you know when it’s time to replace it.
Nakii Water Filter Pitcher
The Activated Carbon Fiber filter on the Nakii pitcher claims to filter out 98% of chlorine and mercury. And it’s not too bad too look at either.
LifeStraw Home Pitcher
LifeStraw combines an activated carbon and ion exchange filter with a long-lasting membrane microfilter to ensure clean and tasty drinking water.
Epic Pure Water Filter Pitcher
The carbon block filter in the Epic Pure pitcher claims to be highly effective against a host of common contaminants, claiming to filter out 2,000% more total trihalomethanes, chromium 6, fluoride, chloramines, and bromodichloromethane than any other maker.
