Water Filtration Systems for Apartment Living

If you’re concerned with water quality, apartment living can be tough. Some landlords are leery of tenants making major changes to their property. This means in addition to not being able to paint your walls neon colors or knock down the kitchen wall, you also can't install a whole house water filtration system.

Without a water filter for your apartment, you may be curious about the presence of:

  • Chlorine taste and odor. Great if you're at a pool. Not so much at home.
  • Other funny odors. Your water shouldn’t smell like rotten eggs.
  • Lead. A common concern with older pipes as they deteriorate.

You do have several water filtration options, if trusted, better-tasting water is a priority.

Common Water Filter Options for Apartment Dwellers

Water Filter Pitchers

You might think about using a water filter pitcher as a water filtration system for your apartment.

While those pitchers are relatively inexpensive and easy to find, but they come with a number of pain points. Filling them takes time, they hog important refrigerator space, and their filters need replacing frequently.
Another problem? Water pitcher filters also are the perfect breeding ground for microorganisms. One study on bacteria in pitcher filters found that after a week of sitting, bacterial counts were higher in the filtered water than in tap water.

Countertop Water Filter System

Countertop water filter systems offer an effective water filtration solution for apartment owners. The Pentair Countertop Drinking System is easy to set up and requires minimal maintenance, with long-lasting filters that are quick and easy to replace. The filter reduces over 60 contaminants from drinking water, including:

  • Chlorine
  • Chloramine
  • Lead
  • Cysts
  • VOCs
  • THMs

Another perk? It’s easy to remove and relocate. That makes taking it with you when you move a breeze!

Undercounter Water Filters

Want the filtering prowess of a countertop water filter, but don't want to lose valuable counter space? Consider an undercounter water filter.
All you have to do is choose the level of filtration you want. Options range from single-stage to five-stage. They all tackle the same contaminants as the countertop filter, but some go above and beyond to address additional contaminants and other sediments. Great if you don't know when the last time your landlord had maintenance on your pipes.

Maybe you want to go all out. After all, your water supply shouldn't be a source of worry. Enjoy great-tasting water for drinking and cooking with a three-stage complete Drinking Water Purification Filtration System. It is certified to reduce:

  • Over 99% of bacteria
