The truth is that you can’t do anything about your water usage, but you can reduce the amount of water you use by not using a water filter at all but instead by using a water softener.
In the case of water softeners, the water filter itself is a major part of the process. The filters remove 99% of the chlorine and other chemicals that are in the water. The remaining 1% is “free” water in the form of “micro particles.” When the micro particles are in the water, it takes more energy to make more water, but that energy is not released in the form of carbon dioxide.
But some people complain that water filters only last about a few weeks. In my opinion, this is a bad idea. You can’t just take out all the micro particles and leave the water clear of chemicals. It takes a lot of energy to remove the chemicals, so the amount of energy you need to use to make water is much less than you would need to make just a small amount of water.
The fact is, many people think that a water filter works by removing toxins from the water. But what happens if you do not clear the water of contaminants? What happens when you put a filter in place of a water filter? You end up with filthier water. The water you are supposed to drink is cleaner than the water you are buying.
This is exactly what happened to me. I had a filter that lasted about 2 weeks, but I ended up with a water that was just dirty enough to make my toothbrush and showerhead stand out like sore teeth.
The only reason I have water with a filter in place of a water filter is because I bought the Water Filter Plus kit ($48.00) specifically for this purpose. It really is a joke. I have a cheap filter that lasts a little over 2 weeks, but you end up with a water that is too dirty to drink at all. I have heard that the Water Filter Plus kit will also do a lot of other water-saving things, but I’ve never used it.
The Water Filter Plus kit has everything you need to be able to take out your water filter, and it only takes about 2 weeks to make. I have found that the filter is the most important aspect of the water you drink, so it makes sense that an inexpensive filter would be the first thing you buy.
The Water Filter Plus kit costs about $49, and its water-saving features are also very well-done. This is especially true if you plan to fill up your own water bottle. There’s also a water filter that is $24, but it’s not as good as the Water Filter Plus.
You can buy a water filter for about a buck. And like every other filter out there, it will last you forever.
In the video above, Water Filter Plus is shown to being able to purify water for more than 24 hours (with a filter at the end), but it will only last like, maybe 4 hours if you drink it cold. The other water purifiers are more effective at purifying a whole gallon (or more) of water at a time, but they also cost more than the Water Filter Plus.
