  1. I could have told you that the Multipure system is the best even without Consumer Reports. But then II am biased, since we have had that system over the last 20+ years. It has never disappointed us and I am completely passionate about the clean and fresh water we get every day.
    Hurray for the Multipure drinking water system!

  2. I cannot really tell what they are comparing from the photo above, but I do know that the best filtration systems are reverse osmosis systems and are usually much cheaper than under the counter water filter systems. I am not sure why water filter systems would cost more than a reverse osmosis system, as they aren’t even comparable in terms of contaminants rejected/removed.

    • Henry,

      Thank you for your comment. While reverse osmosis is great at removing most contaminants, It also has it’s drawbacks. Reverse osmosis also removes beneficial minerals and the water is considered as acidic. Acidic water can be dangerous to the body system, causing calcium and other essential minerals to be stripped from bones and teeth in order to neutralize its acidity. Trace elements of minerals were intended to be in water.

      Another drawback is the amount of water wasted (2-5 gallons) per 1 gallon of water. Also, depending on how many stages of filters an RO has, they require many filters and continual maintenance which many people do not want to deal with. The only time I recommend RO is if you have high levels of fluoride in your drinking water that you want to remove, And even then I would recommend a distiller over an RO system for fluoride reduction.
