2. Filter life
The life of the water filter pitcher depends on the level of contaminants and the amount of water that passes through the filter every day. It is usually estimated by the manufacturer under normal conditions (ie tap water).
It is best to choose a filter that can be used for two to six months. Even if the manufacturer claims that you can use the filter, we do not recommend using it for more than six months. During this time, moss and bacteria tend to grow in the filter and begin to contaminate the water.
3. Pitcher material
Most water filter pitchers have a plastic body, so they are affordable and lightweight.
It is worth noting that not all plastics are the same. Low-quality plastics themselves can be harmful to health because they can seep into chemicals and interfere with your hormone levels. We recommend the use of food-grade plastics and bisphenol A-free (BPA-free) materials. They may not be 100% safe, but it is still a big step forward.
4. Pitcher size
If you not only provide drinking water for yourself, always check how much water the pitcher can handle at one time. The larger capacity means that you don’t have to refill the water filter pitcher, without waiting for the filter to finish its job. A few minutes may not sound like much, but if you have to stand on the table and wait for it, it feels like forever.
5.Easy to use and clean
Looking for a powerful design. The jug, lid, handle, reservoir tank and filter should be tightly installed together to prevent any leakage, especially from the upper to the lower reservoir tank. At the same time, when the filter needs to be replaced, the filter should also be easy to disassemble.
All water filter pitchers have lids, but only some have lids that open automatically. This feature comes in handy when you add water again.
The water filter pitcher needs to be cleaned about once a week to prevent the growth of algae, bacteria, and other unhealthy substances that may contaminate your drinking water. In this regard, a simple design without fancy details is important so that you can easily clean every corner.
