Clean drinking water is hard to come by, and in today's day and age, many options claim to give you the "best water," "healthiest water," or "purest water." Even if you live in an area where your water is clear and tastes good, it is still highly likely that harmful contaminants and chemicals are present. You can't see, taste, or smell them, but testing shows they are there! Toxins like pesticides, Chromium 6 (the Erin Brockovich contaminant), lead, arsenic, and many others are commonly found in tap water supplies across the US and the rest of the world.
So what filtration system is the best to remove the contaminants in your tap water? Many people believe that Reverse Osmosis (RO) is the most effective option for ensuring your water is free and clear of all toxins, but that is not necessarily the case. Yes, RO water is likely safer than your original tap water, but is it the safest or even the best option available?
