I’ve never been a fan of plastic water bottles and I routinely drink tap water. It tastes fine to me, though I realize it may not be as healthy as something more filtered. Today I’m going to share the system I’m going to install to provide better water. Yes, there will be an Amazon link and I do get a tiny commission. No, they didn’t provide me a free one.
As I looked at various options, I wanted to find something that took up the least amount of space possible under my sink. Many of the less expensive systems come with a large tank so I had to eliminate them. Of the tankless systems, the Waterdrop Reverse Osmosis Water Filtration System stood out to me. There are two replaceable filters that perform multiple tasks along with an attractive faucet that installs on the sink. Yes, your sink will need to have an available hole for the faucet.
In order to pump the water, you also need to have an available outlet to plug in the filter. That’s an issue for me and I’ll have to have an outlet installed. Many people will already have an outlet so that won’t be a problem. According to their marketing materials, it only takes 30 minutes to install. I have a feeling it will take me a bit longer, but even an hour doesn’t sound horrible to me.
There are two filter cartridges that will need to be changed over time. The Waterdrop WD-G2CF Filter is rated for 1100 gallons or approximately 12 months. While more expensive, the Waterdrop WD-G2MRO Filter is rated for 2200 gallons or approximately 24 months. Based on current prices, you’ll spend approximately $60-$65 a year to replace filters.
For those wanting better water from their faucet, give this system a look!
