My college kids always raved about their Brita water products so I decided to give it a try. Last year my last child left for college. She went thru a ton of water while she was around. She HAD to have bottled water, so when she left for college, my husband and I decided to stop the madness with all of the plastic bottles and invest into a Brita water system. My mom had also used a filtration on her water, so I was already sold on the great clean taste. We looked on Amazon, and had several choices. We finally decided to go ahead and get the three and a half gallon jug for our refrigerator. It has one of those spouts like on the wine boxes. There is no drip and I cannot say enough about how cold and clean the water tastes going down. It filters out all of those nasty floating things that one normally sees in a glass of water. They also give you a filter or two in the box. I went ahead and ordered extra filters while on Amazon. Now everyone in our family is a Brita user, grandparents included!! Once you give it a try, you will be amazed at how much you save in bottled water not to mention doing the planet a great favor at the same time!!
