I've been using bottled water and I realized I need to stop being lazy and install a filter to save money and be less rude to the environment. Any recs for a good one though? I'd probably like to put it on my kitchen sink so I can wash my vegetables there too. I've been washing my vegetables with non-filtered water, gasp=)

I bought the Aquasana as something that wasn't too expensive and is better with longer lasting filters than ones like Britta and Pur, making it cheaper to use over a year's time.

If you want the flouride out, you need reverse osmosis which are usually expensive, but I found these after I bought the aquasana:

Thanks, which Aquasana did you get, the complete, basic, or deluxe? And you only need to buy one a year?

I bought the complete counter top. They are all the same. You can buy the under counter kit later.

You change the filter every six months. You can sign up to have them sent automatically. And they'll keep send you their glass bottles hoping you'll buy some. I think they are the stupidest design ever. Why would anyone want such a tall, narrow, easily tipped-over breakable bottle? Sorry, I've just wanted to tell them their bottle is stupid for a while, but have restrained myself.
