How much money will you save with a water filter?
Water makes up almost 2/3 of our body and it’s therefore critical for our well-being to drink clean water. No wonder so many people spend money on bottled water. But is bottled water really better for you? What if there was a better alternative?
The cost of bottled water
What most people don’t realise is how much money is spent on bottled water throughout the year. Depending on the choice of brand it might be anywhere from 150 to thousands of euros per year. See our bottled water calculator for more.
What’s worse is that there is no scientific evidence that bottled water is healthier than tap or filtered water.
Alternatives to bottled water
The cheapest alternative is obviously to drink the tap water directly. However, not everyone lives in an area where the tap water is good for drinking and showering. Thankfully you may actually save money by investing in a water filtration system for your drinking water and even shower.
How much will you save with a water filter?
It’s easy to save money with water filters.
For drinking water the cost of a water filtration system such as EcoPro or EcoPro Compact is about €85 per year for a household of 2-4 people versus the average spend of €200-400 on bottled water. I.e. most people will get the money back on the investment from the 4th month.
In addition to this you will save the effort of buying and carrying home bottles and managing the recycling of bottles. But what’s even better is that you will also help save the planet versus drinking bottled water which generates plastic waste and increases your CO2 footprint.
What’s the best affordable water filtration system?
Finding the right water filter can be hard. Options include pitchers, reverse osmosis, faucet filters, gravity filters and UV light. What is the best option for you?
