Beating Bottled Water

Everyone wants pure drinking water, but traditional point-of-use (POU) purification systems sometimes drive consumers toward bottled water. Pitcher-based filtration systems remove few contaminants. Conventional RO systems treat water at low flow rates and generally require a storage tank. Another factor is taste. For example, RO filtration systems remove nearly all of the minerals that contribute to taste.
