Top 10 Best Pitcher Water Filters For Home or Kitchen in 2017 Reviews

A pitcher water filter could change your life. Remove limescale and mineral deposits and any unpleasant chlorine taste from your tap water. At the same time, make fresh water easier to serve and dispense.

The environmental benefits are great too – replace a bottled water habit, refill from your own pitcher for your hydration needs and you’ll keep hundreds of plastic bottles out of our landfill every year and save yourself hundreds of dollars too.

Many of these pitchers will fit inside a fridge door, giving you cold clear water without the need to find, dispense and refill ice trays. The noticeable difference to the taste of coffee and tea makes them well worth investing in, and there are size, filtration and filling options to suit all tastes.
