    Default Water filters

    Cheapskates that we are we have decided that we can live without buying "agua en botellones" now that is up to 35 pesos. I have been checking the net for home water filtration systems. They all claim to be the best and to get rid of everything in the water. Sure, we have a strong stomach but why expend in doctors what we saved in water, and that is supposing that the water we get is actually that good.

    Does any of you have installed an under-the-sink water filtration system? At what cost (purchase plus replacement parts)? What is the best brand? What should I worry most, pathogens, minerals or chemicals?

    Thanks for the help.

    I used this system at another home in Texas and it worked great.

    I'm still paying 20.
    Remind me not to buy cigarettes at your place.

    Hmm... I see there isn't a standard price.

    Now, back to topic. I don't care if it's 20 or 30 or 40, I want to get rid of the darn botellón. Ideas?

    Default Pib, you may want to look into this

    I have been using a UV system on the main house line. My water is now completely drinkable out of all taps of the house, not just kitchen. Works great and I have the lab results to show the before and after results from a canadian lab. It completely burns out the bacteria. Check my ad in the classified section on DR1

    Interesting, but the add doesn't say much about the product. Any chance I get more information? I am a picky shopper you know...

    Lightbulb British Imperial rules

    The "British Imperial" filter is very good.
    No idea if it is available in DR, I bought it from an online dealer in USA.
