There are a lot of water filters and water purifiers out there. But I’ve bought a really good product from a company called Stefani. The reason I bought mine is that, as well as managing to clean and filter the water, it looks good.
It is a Terracotta Water Purifier from Brazil. According to wikipedia, Terracotta is Italian for “Baked Earth”, and “is a hard semifired waterproof ceramic clay used in pottery, older wastewater drains, and as surface embellishment in building construction.”
The Terracotta gives my water filter 2 benefits:
- Terracotta has a natural cooling effect, so the water, though not ice cold, will be quite cool.
- It looks really good, and fits in really well with the theme in my kitchen.
I really recommend getting a water filter (or a water purifier) of some sort. This is because it helps remove a lot of the harmful chemicals, toxins and bacteria from tap water. Though, to be honest, the reason I got one is because I had just moved into a new house, and the water in the taps was tasting quite “sandy” due to the pipes being newly installed.
Remember, take a look around and see what is out there. Water Filters can be put in a lot of places in the house, like the shower, bath, kitchen sink, etc… And, they look different. So you will definitely need to shop around before settling on something.
