Undercounter water filters are a better alternative to bottled water

The bottled water trend costs people money, and doesn't deliver better water. Instead, high quality filters can deliver healthy water at a fraction of the cost of bottled water.

At the 2016 International Builders' Show, Howard Esbin, president of Environmental Water Systems, discussed the benefits of simple, high quality undercounter water filters.

As an alternative to bottled water deliveries or purchases, EWS offer the Essential Max Flow in-line filter system.

"This is the product that can eliminate bottled water and all the cheap gimmicks," Esbin said.

The Essential Max Flow filter can be installed under a sink inline with the existing cold water line. It does not require a separate faucet so there's no need to drill a hole in a sink or countertop. Esbin noted it's an easy installation for renters who may not have permission to drill a hole in the countertop, and for owners of condos, apartments, townhomes and other multifamily dwellings.

"Anyone can install this filter and get filtered water for an entire year not only to drink but to cook with as well by just turning on their kitchen faucet without any flow restriction," Esbin said.

Compared to what the average home spends on bottled water in a year, the Essential Max Flow saves about 75 percent of the cost and delivers up to 10,000 gallons of filtered water over the course of a year, depending on the quality of water.
