Filter Your Own Water

We have about 75 active blog readers. Most are still drinking bottled water, despite the math to the contrary. Any simple water filter will save serious money

The breakdown:

The WaterX(or similar) will filter 5,000 gallons of water for $400 through Carbon, ceramic and resin filters. The price is 8 cents a gallon. Bottles water costs $1.67 per gallon on average or.....$8,350 for 5,000 gallons

WaterX WX500

With filter replacement, any standard system, WaterX, Everpure or GE, the price drops to 2 cents per gallon. This of course does not include benefits to the environment such as the transportation, manufacture and disposal of 1 billion dollars worth of plastic annually.
