I'm new here, love this site and the wealth of info I've learned from it!
I was just wondering what water filters everyone is using, if any. I've looked at the aquasana's (yea or Nay) but was wondering what else was out there for comparison. Suggestions?

I use the Premium 10 stage water filter by Enviro Products. It's been great and it's really easy to assemble...10 minutes tops. The filter needs to be changed once a year, but probably more often is best. I got it from my local health food store.
Also, I use their shower filter as well. It's made a huge difference in the feel of my hair and skin.
Vibin... I looked up your water filter, and I have a question. If I plan on moving in 5 months from here, do you think it could easily be removed and put on a different faucet? And was the installation easy for both? I'm thinking about getting them as the water supply in my house is horrible. I've been using a Brita filter on the faucet and the separate container to double filter, but I'm replacing the filters often and the water still tastes unfiltered... So I'm thinking now is a good time for a new solution.
I should mention that the water turns our shower blue with stains from whatever. Ick. It's pretty bad. I'm glad we're moving for that reason alone!
Thanks in advance.

I recently got the Wellness shower filter which I'm very impressed with. My hair and skin actually do feel softer which wasn't the case with my last shower filter. So now I'm thinking of buying their water filter carafe for the kitchen. http://www.amazon.com/Wellness-Carafe-2-3-Litres/dp/B000A0W8WI
I want to get off of bottled water. I don't feel good about using all that plastic.

Anybody else use anything they like? I'm worried about all the chemicals in tap water. Does this one filter get rid of them?

We have the Culligan system, which is a little more complicated to install, but it does well, adn is pretty maintenance free.

Walmart has a Culligan water dispenser where you buy the jugs and reuse them. Would this be the same??

I recently purchased, installed and am using the countertop Aquasana unit in my kitchen. It seems to be working well. It takes a few days to get the bubbles/air out of the system, but after that it was good.
(The instructions leave something to be desired, but there is a very good video tutorial on their website that helped a lot!)
Here's the water filter comparison chart that helped me make the decision. I tend to research things quite a bit before purchasing something, so I hope this helps someone out there and saves them a bit of time.
P.S. My tap water definitely has fluoride in it and chlorine..I checked the spec sheets on our local water, plus, I can smell the chlorine. I notice a marked difference with the filter.

i just got an enviro products shower filter and my skin and hair feel AMAZING. i always used to have dry patches of skin after showering and i've had to force myself to shower for several years because i always felt like i had a film over me afterwards no matter how much soap i used... but now i'm excited to shower.
for drinking water i use a wellness carafe but i'm going to filter the shower water instead of the tap water now because i want my insides to feel as good as my skin. ;)
