Clean water is essential for maintaining good health, and pitcher
water filters are a popular way to ensure that your drinking water is free of impurities. There are several brands
of pitcher water filters available, including PUR®, Zerowater®, and Brita®. In this blog post, we will introduce you
to Aquacrest’s replacement filters for these pitchers and explain why they are a great choice for your home.
Working Principles of Pitcher Water Filters
All water filter pitchers work on the same basic
. When water passes through the filter cartridge, it encounters a filter medium that restricts,
or rejects impurities. The filter media used can vary depending on the manufacturer and model, with some filters
using physical filtration techniques, while others utilize chemical filtration techniques.
However, due to their small size, these pocket-sized filters can
treat only a small amount of water and need to be replaced every one or two months to maintain their effectiveness.
Over time, old filters can become clogged with impurities and
bacteria, which can affect the taste and quality of your water. Additionally, filters that are past their expiration
date may not be as effective at removing contaminants, which can pose a health risk to you and your family. To
ensure that you always have clean and safe drinking water, it’s important to follow the manufacturer’s
recommendations and replace your pitcher water filter as needed.
