I drink A LOT of water (a gallon a day right now actually) because when you’re breastfeeding you need to stay hydrated.
Well, I also watched a Zac Efron show Down to Earth about clean water. So when I saw a Clearly Filtered water pitcher ad come across my Instagram I bought it and gave the water filter pitcher a try and I LOVE it!! My mom says the water actually tastes different and I swear I have more energy.
How do you know if your water is good or need a water filter pitcher?
There’s actually a website you can enter your zip code in that will tell you!
I use the filtered water in my gallon water bottle every morning, coffee machine, the water I use when I cook rice, and now a little in babe’s silly cup too! Basically, anything that needs water.. even my diffuser lol
Like most of my favorite collaborations – I reached out to them.
I spoke directly to one of the founders, and listened as his passion for this poured out! He even answered ALL of my filtered water bottle questions and the ones from my people on Instagram.
These are those questions and answers:
We have a blog on our site titled “How does a carbon filter stack up against Clearly Filtered?”
This blog goes into depth about the differences between a standard carbon filter (Brita) and our water filters. Ultimately, Brita looks to reduce Chlorine (which is the main chemical you can taste and smell in water) to make your water taste better, and give someone the impression their water is clean. 99.9% of contaminants in water you can’t see, taste, or smell. Brita removes about 5 contaminants where Clearly a filtered remove over 220.
Again, a great blog on our site about this titled “What is the difference between PUR and Clearly Filtered”. PUR targets a few more contaminants than Brita does (roughly 20) but is still way behind what Clearly Filtered can remove (over 220).
Do they ship the water filter pitcher to Canada?
Yep! We ship to Worldwide and also sell an Amazon CA as well!
Can we see what all toxins it filters?
Yes! We publish our 3rd party testing done by an EPA accredited lab directly on the website. Each product has been tested separately (we have under the sink filter, a filter for a water picture, and a filtered water bottle) and therefore each has its own test results. We look to be extremely transparent with this data so you can see exactly what you’re getting when you make Clearly filtered your choice.
Does it filter dissolved solids?
Yes and no. Our filter is designed to remove contaminants but leave the healthy beneficial minerals in your water; both of which can classify as Total Dissolved Solids.
With that being said, measuring TDS of your water is not an accurate way to determine if your water is clean or not. Many chemicals and contaminants wouldn’t even show up on a TDS meter. We have a great blog on our site about this topic titled “Understanding water and Total Dissolved Solids (TDS)” that dives deep into what TDS actually is and whether it’s a good indicator of water quality!
Does it filter nitrates from well water?
Yes, it does! We have a lot of customers on well water that use our products because of the wide array of contaminants our filters work for. Our filter is rated to remove 99.3% of Nitrates from your water.
Does it work more efficiently than a filter in the refrigerator?
Yes. Much more effective than a common refrigerator filter. Those filters are basically carbon media and are more or less Brita water filter in a different form. Carbon filters do not remove many contaminants from water so it very likely harmful contaminants are passing through that filter. Clearly Filtered actually sells a universal fridge filter as well that plugs directly into the water line behind your fridge, filtering all the water before it gets to your fridge’s water spigot or ice machine and also before it gets to the pipes which can make the fridge even last longer.
How often do you replace filters?
Clearly, Filtered pitcher filters last for 100 gallons which are 2.5x longer than most other filters. We see our auctioneers changing their filter about once every 4-5 months on average. If you wait until it the taste changes, you’ve waited too long. This is the guide they share on their website for the what is the best water filter pitcher:
What do we do if the legal limit of something is exceeded in our area?
The first question we would ask is “what contaminant is it?” This question is critical to understand what the solution may be. Besides the answer of “don’t drink it until you understand the situation”, you would want to see if you are using a water filter, does your filter have data that proves it removes the affected contaminants. If it doesn’t, is there a filter that does? It’s highly likely that if Clearly Filtered doesn’t remove it then others likely can’t either. Clearly Filtered removes more contaminants than Berkey and many reverse osmosis systems.
If you aren’t sure what’s in your water, here is a great website to find out.
Fluoride is classified as one of the greatest health achievements of the 20th century. The goal of fluoride is to strengthen the enamel of your teeth. And it does do that. Where the need for removal of Fluoride from water arose was though Fluoride is good for your teeth topically, what happens when you ingest it every day? Are their health effects there? Many individuals with thyroid issues or gastrointestinal issues find reprieve when removing chemicals like Fluoride. We offer an option for those wanting it removed and if you don’t, you’ll still have your toothpaste (which btw says contact poison control if swallowed on the back because of the fluoride in it)
What is the pitcher made out of once it’s filtered?
It’s made out of BPA-free medical-grade Tritan plastic. As far as we know it’s the only water pitcher in the world made from this quality of materials!
I hope this was as enlightening for you as it was for me!
