Multipure Aquaversa (MP750sb) Named #1 For Second Year In A Row!

Consumer Reports Best Water Filters – 2013

CR1Consumer Reports is my favorite magazine of its type, and I  trust them to give fair and unbiased  test results. In this June, 2013 edition they tested and reported on most common kitchen appliances and surprisingly, for the second year in a row, water filters!  Consumer Reports tells us that filtering tap water can save money and keep millions of plastic bottles out of landfills. This is especially important as most of these water bottles never make it to the recycling bins or the landfills, but end up in our waterways and oceans!

CR tested almost 40 water filters for their report covering such aspects as: how well they removed contaminants including lead removal, chloroform removal, flow rate, clogging, filter replacement and price.

Lead removal indicates the percentage of lead that was removed.

Chloroform removal rates the percentage of chloroform removed. A filter’s ability to remove chloroform predicts how well it will remove many organic compounds as well as byproducts created by disinfectants used by water systems.

Flow rate measures how long it takes to filter 1 gallon of water. The criteria for flow rate scores differently between different types of filters. Faucet-mount, countertop, and undersink models use the same criterion; carafes and reverse osmosis models each have their own.

Clogging measures how well the filter retains its flow rate over time and whether it stopped flowing completely before its claimed life span.

Prices shown are approximate retail.

CR tested carafes, countertop, faucet mounted, reverse osmosis, and under sink water filters.

Once again, the Multipure MP750sb (also known as the Aquaversa) rated best for under the sink water filters.  I highly recommend the Multipure line of products and this is the system that I have in my kitchen.

One Drop At A Time

waterdropIn beginning a new season, we are inclined to become introspective. We look at our daily lives and routines and evaluate in order to improve. You may wonder if you are doing enough to care for yourself, your fellow humans and the environment.

When looking for ways to live a more fulfilling and responsible life, it is easy to become overwhelmed. There are many facets of life on which one could focus; however, the thought of conquering everything at once can be daunting. A great solution to this is to begin with some small, simple things that involve daily activities. In reality, the small things that you do each day make the biggest impact overall. For example, here are three easy ways to save water, the world’s most precious resource. In doing so, you will be helping yourself, fellow humans and the environment, one drop at a time.

Time it: Every day, you do things that involve running a faucet for a period of time, whether it’s washing dishes or brushing your teeth. The mind can wander while the tap is running and valuable water is going down the drain. One way to get the job done effectively is to set a timer. If you know that the timer is going to go off, and you will have to shut off the sink at the sound of the alarm, you will be more cognizant of the amount of resources you use. Once you use a timer a few times, you will subconsciously become accustomed to using water in a timelier manner. This way, in addition to saving resources, you will also save time.

Install it: In doing a little research about water conservation devices, you might be surprised at how easy they are to install and implement into your daily routine. Water-saving showerheads use a fraction of the H2O that regular showerheads use, while still functioning efficiently. Once you have your high-efficiency shower head installed, you can save the wet stuff by simply showering normally. You will use less, therefore simultaneously saving money on your bills and helping our planet.

Drink it: Ironically, drinking water is a great way to conserve it. Use a filter to purify your tap water and opt to drink it instead of bottled water, soda or other beverages. Considering that water composes 75 percent of your body, it must be the healthiest thing you can drink. By drinking purified water from you tap, you are also reducing the amount that goes into manufacturing non-water beverages. Everyday, millions of gallons of precious H2O are used to manufacture soda. Make a resolution to limit or discontinue drinking packaged drinks and create a healthier Earth and a healthier you.

Water conservation is one of Ashley’s favorite topics to write about. If you’re looking for more information regarding water saving showerheads, please visit http://www.niagaraconservation.com/

Distilled Water Is Healthy Water

Distilled Water Is Healthy Water

distillerdistillerWater distillers are a fantastic appliance for people who are health conscious and concerned about pollutants or chemicals. Distilled water is great for drinking and cooking and is also perfect for watering plants. If you are in the market for a water distiller, there are a few things you should know in order to make a smart selection.

Look for a Money-Back Guarantee

When shopping for a water distiller, make sure the one you select has at least a 30-day money-back guarantee. You certainly don’t want to buy a dud and then be stuck with it. A water distiller, like any electronic appliance, is a fairly complicated piece of apparatus and there are a number of things that can go wrong during the manufacturing or assembly process. Moreover, shipping and handling can damage a machine and cause it to not work properly.  Therefore, be sure to select a model that offers a solid guarantee in the event of failure.

Be careful however as some manufacturers may claim that they offer a money-back-guarantee, yet will only accept a return if the appliance is sent back unused. Therefore if you open the box, plug it in and try to use it, only to discover that the machine does not work, you cannot return the item because it has technically been used.

The type of guarantee you need is where the manufacturer accepts returns even if you have used the appliance for several weeks before discovering it does not work properly. Some manufacturers require a restocking fee if you have changed your mind about the purchase and want to return the item even though it is in working order. A restocking fee is customary and appropriate.

Make Sure the Water Distiller is Certified

When shopping for a water distiller, be sure that it has been certified by some appropriate governmental agency or consumer advocate group, such as the Underwriters Laboratories, the Canadian Standards Association, ANSI, or the U.S.’s Nationally Recognised Testing Laboratories.

If the appliance has not been certified, then it has not been approved for safe use by a recognised authority.  A well-designed, quality-manufactured water distiller should be able to pass the standards test of nearly any safety authority.

Look for a seal or decal on the box or packaging that indicates the item has passed the necessary standards test.  This is extremely important, since you will be ingesting the output of the water distiller. Any appliance that has not been tested and certified should be considered unsafe. Make sure that you choose one of the dozens (or even hundreds) of other brands that have passed certification standards testing.

Make Sure the Water Distiller is Competitively Priced

When shopping for a water distiller, don’t choose one that is much cheaper or much more expensive than other models. Select one that is competitively priced.

If the unit is considerably less expensive than the average price, the reason for that is probably inferior materials and workmanship. You do not want to scrimp on manufacturing when it comes to an appliance that produces water you intend to drink.

On the other hand, if the item is considerably more expensive than average, you should make sure you know what you are paying for. Does it offer features which others do not? Does it claim to be of better quality and workmanship? If you pay more for an item, that is your decision. But be sure you know what you are getting, and be certain it is not simply hype.

By following the above tips, you will be able to choose a great water filter that has been certified safe. You can use it for at least a few weeks to be sure it operates properly and make sure you will be certain that you aren’t paying too much and that you aren’t buying an inferior product.

Sally Dimmock is a writer who believes that water distillers are a great product and have many uses. However, she recommends that if you are looking to purchase one, you ensure you buy one which comes with a guarantee just in case you need to take it back.

Contaminated Water At Military Base Linked To Rare Cancer

lejeuneContaminated water at a military base for a period of 30 years is still wreaking havoc today with rare cancers developing in those who drank the water those many years ago. Many have passed on and those who are alive today are still struggling with various ailments. It is said that in the 1950’s in Camp Lejeune the tap water became contaminated with harmful, cancer causing chemicals that the families on the base drank and bathed in without knowledge of the issue. Many of those who were on the camp at the time later developed various carcinomas, which are now blamed on that water.  President Obama finally signed into law an act in August 2012 that will make sure that these people have medical care provided for them.

Touted as the largest contamination of water in the history of America, the Camp Lejeune water contamination caused leukemia in children, breast cancer in men, acute lymphoma and acute myeloid among others. Breast cancer is very rare among men, but of the men who have served or were born on the military base, at least 80 have been diagnosed with this rare cancer.

In addition to that, birth defects, stillbirths and infant mortality became a common thing. Babies were born with open spines, one without a cranium and so many of them died soon after birth that the military base had to set aside a section in their cemetery just for babies. This section became known as baby heaven due to the sheer volumes of babies buried there.

Once the news of the contamination was discovered, it is said that the Marine Corps did not move fast enough to contact and alert those who may have been exposed to these harmful chemicals. This led to two brave men taking matters into their own hands and making a documentary about it to get the word out to others who had served at the military base at the time.

Current healthcare legislation mandates the VA to pay and treat these conditions. Even though the babies will not come back and the cancer may not go into remission at least the financial burden of these diseases will not be on the families that have suffered so much in the last few years. It is said that millions may have been affected in the 30 years that the water at Camp Lejeune was contaminated.  This may not be the cure all, but it will help if only a little.

Multipure Aquaversa (MP750sb) As Reported By Reactual, Wins Title As The Best Under-Counter Drinking Water Filter For 2012!

The Best Water Filters For 2012

by  on JANUARY 2, 2012 · in HOME & GARDEN PRODUCTSKITCHEN PRODUCTS

In A Nutshell: The Best Under-Sink Water Filter

We recommend the Multi-Pure MP750SB under-sink water filter. It is Consumer Reports’ top rated under-sink filter, with a rating of 90 out of 100. It has a wide range of NSF Standard 53 contaminant reduction (NSF is an industry-standard filter certifier). The yearly maintenance costs are also low, making it good value for money in terms of the Cost Per Contaminant (CPC) Ratio. Another excellent filter is the Aqua-Pure by Cuno AP-DWS1000, scoring 88 out of 100 from Consumer Reports, also certified by NSF. It sells for around $100 less than the Multi-Pure filter.

Why Filter Your Water?

Bottled water is expensive, wasteful, and less regulated than tap water. In fact, most bottled water is simply filtered tap water. Filtering your water at home is the most effective and least expensive option overall. However, you will need a good quality water filter, because tap water commonly contains contaminants such as lead, chloroform, arsenic, nitrate, nitrite, radon, and E. coli. The good news is that the filters featured here will remove most of these impurities.

Experts recommend that you should find out which pollutants are in your local water supply. You can then customize your filtration by selecting filters that target those specific pollutants. One way to find out is to check your consumer confidence report, or CCR. The EPA requires utilities to provide a CCR to their customers every year, and they are often available on government websites. Consumer Reports had this to say about CCRs:

Our recent analysis of CCRs from the 13 largest U.S. cities revealed that few claimed to have no federal water-quality violations. Though none of the other water systems were consistently unhealthful, all had some samples containing significant quantities of contaminants. In New York City, for example, some samples had lead levels several times the federal limit.

Here’s the list of the types of contaminants you want to remove from tap water:

  1. Organic compounds (Pesticides, Herbicides, Pharmaceuticals, Fuels, etc.)
  2. Toxic metals (Lead, Mercury, Aluminum, Cadmium, Chromium, Copper, etc.)
  3. Bacterial and viruses (Giardia, Cryptosporidium, etc.)
  4. Radioactive substances (Radon and Uranium, etc.)
  5. Additives (Chlorine and Chloramines, Fluoride, etc.)

Why Choose An Under-Sink Water Filter?

Under-sink water filters are the most convenient and less expensive type of water filter. Pitcher-based filters and faucet-mounted filters are not as effective as under-sink filters. In The Drinking Water Book, water filter expert Colin Ingram rates all pitcher filters and and faucet mounted filters as  “Acceptable” (the lowest rating). Good under-sink water filters get a rating of “Very Good” from him. Water distillers get a rating of “Excellent” but distillers are slow, expensive and time-consuming to operate. Reverse Osmosis filters work well and they are the only type certified to remove arsenic. But you must sanitize them with bleach periodically. Eventually the membrane must be replaced. They can also be extremely slow, rob cabinet space, and create 3 to 5 gallons of waste water for every gallon filtered.

Top Rated: The Multi-Pure MP750SB Water Filter

 

The Multi-Pure MP750SB is a three-stage carbon filter, certified to remove a range of important water contaminants — herbicides, heavy metals, industrial chemicals and volatile organic compounds.

This filter is certified by NSF International, which means it has been tested that it does in fact remove contaminants, and does not re-contaminate the water with bacteria. Many commonly available filters will let quite a few contaminants through. For example, in-fridge or faucet-mount filters may not filter VOCs and chlorination by-products like Trihalomethanes (THMs).

Besides the NSF certification, several states  such as California, Iowa, Wisconsin, and Massachusetts have certified this filter. The Multi-Pure MP750SB was also Consumer Reports’ top rated under-sink filter, with a rating of 90 out of 100.

 

The filter life is approximately 750 gallons, which translates into a year worth of filtration for most households. Replacement filters cost about $120 per year, making this filter inexpensive solution in the long-term.

See also the MP750SB filter’s home page.

You can find the Multi-Pure MP750SB  for around $429.
