Drinking water is so important. There’s a clear connection for me between how much water I drink in a day and how refreshed I feel during the day. Not to mention, when I drink more water, my skin is always clearer. That’s why I love anything that helps me drink clean and fresh water easily and frequently.
About the Filtrete Water Station
I’m no dope. While I’m sure that the local county will say that drinking tap water is just fine, I’ve heard too many stories about broken pipes and weird bacteria to drink straight from the tap. It wasn’t that long ago that the county got issued a warning to use bottled/treated water for drinking, cooking, and brushing your teeth – eek! That’s why I love products like the Filtrete Water Station. The Filtrete Water Station provides an easy way to fill up reusable plastic water bottles that not only help me get my 8 cups of water per day, but also help reduce my impact on the environment.
The Filtrete Water Station comes with a docking station & lid, a filter, and 4 16.9 oz water bottles. It’s very simple to set-up. Simple pop the water bottles into the station and then use the kitchen faucet to “water” the water station. The water goes through the filter and then straight into the reusable water bottles. If you have one bottle in use and three empty ones, then you can still use the station – it only spouts water into the valves that have a bottle underneath. The Filtrete Fast Flow Filter lasts for about 100 gallons of water and has a convenient 3 month indicator on it to let you know when it’s time to change the filter.
A quick note about the water bottles – the ingenious little snap tops are leak-proof, BPA-free, and top rack dishwasher safe. Once you snap the top in place, I can carry it around with the white plastic as the handle it it doesn’t leak at all. The fact that they’re top rack dishwasher safe is a double bonus.
To show you how easy and how quickly you can get four freshly filtered bottles of water, I made this little video of the Filtrete Water Station in action:
In the video, you’ll see that the front bottles are filling up before the back ones. Apparently my counter has a slight tilt to it, and since the water station uses gravity, the filtered water goes towards the front bottles first and after filling up those bottles, it starts to fill up the back bottles. So if you see that happening – no worries – it just means your counter isn’t 100% flat. I also make sure to use the drainage spout after bottling my water. Just pop open the spout and tilt the water station towards the spout so all of the extra water that didn’t make it into the bottle pours out. You can pour it into an extra water bottle or a pitcher if you want, since it’s perfectly fine filtered water.
I really like using the Filtrete Water Station. I typically fill the bottles up in the afternoon, throw them in the fridge, then drink one in the morning, afternoon, evening, and later at night. It’s so convenient and definitely helps me get my 8 cups. To help you and your family drink plenty of water, consider the Filtrete Water Station. It’s available for purchase at your local Target and hardware stores, and can also be purchased online at Amazon.com. It has an MSRP of $42.99 but is selling on Amazon for just $33 + free shipping.
