Let’s talk about water filtration systems! Every time you pour a glass of water from your tap water source, in your glass gets a large amount of bacteria, germs, impurities and traces of rust found in water pipes. Therefore, water filters are a necessity if you plan to drink clean and healthy water from your kitchen faucet. As I said in a previous post, there are many types of water filters for home usage, and you should not hurry and buy the cheapest one you can find. Take your time to check all the available options, read what other customers are saying about the product you want to buy, make sure the filtering percentage is high enough and make sure its warranty is longer enough. These are the best best home water filtration systems you can buy under $200.
The reverse osmosis purifying systems are so reliable that they are used for industrial and commercial purposes, but there are also few devices that uses this technology for home usage. The Hydro-Logic 31035 represents the perfect choice for a home water purification. Its system forces water to pass in one direction through a thin semi-permeable membrane and again in the opposite direction, thereby filtering out the contaminants and impurities. The reverse osmosis filters are one of the best systems that you can invest in, and this device will clean up to 100-Gallon of water per day making it ultra-pure and 98-Percent free of chlorine and contaminants.
This filtering system uses 3 filtration stages (red, blue and purple) in order to provide you and your family with 99% pure water. The package features the complete setup, so there is no need to buy additional connectors or pipes. I also like the fact that the filters can be easily changed with a single push, so there is no need for you to pay for additional maintenance. According to most reviews, the Watts hose connectors are made of high quality materials, the system is super-easy to install and the resulting water has a great taste. You will find it under $150.
Although this system is right around the price limit of $200, it’s all about quality and convenience (edit: when this article was first written, its price was under $200). The packages contains a high quality air gap faucet, the reservoir and the 3-stage filtering system. The device is really easy to mount and you can replace the filters really easy. It will produce up to 50 gallons per day of clean water, removing over 99% of unwanted impurities and bacteria from it.
They say you should always keep the best for last. The iSpring 75GPD water filter is definitely the best water filtration system to buy if you have a budget under $200. Everything about it is NSF certified (even the storage tank that’s included in the package). The system uses 5 stage reverse osmosis filtering (5 micron high-capacity polypropylene sediment filter, GAC Carbon Filter, CTO Carbon Filter, High Rejection 75GPD TFC reverse osmosis membrane, total Polishing Inline Carbon 10″) to clean the water, it is noise free and will purify 75 gallons of water per day. This system will remove over 40 harmful organic and inorganic elements from the tap water stream. The package also contains a luxury faucet (as seen in the image). According to other customers, this is definitely the best bang for the buck in its price range.
When you decide to get a home filtration system for water, you should first determine if you have enough space under/near the sink to mount it and determine the path of the water from the filter to your sink. No matter what type of filter you choose, make sure it is manufactured by a famous brand that you can trust and you can get warranty for it. Avoid obscure brands that sell cheap products! If you plan to purify the water from specific substances, make sure that the filtration system was designed for that, because each is specifically designed to retain different substances that may contaminate the water.
