Stop wasting your money on bottled water. According to the World Wildlife Fund, "Bottled water may be no safer, or healthier, than tap water in many countries while selling for up to 1,000 times the price." 40 percent of bottled water should be labeled bottled 'tap water' because that is exactly what it is.
However, you can get the greater taste of bottled water right at home with a filter system. The average cost of pint sized bottled water is $1.23, and with 8 pints in a gallon, that brings the cost of bottled water up to about $9.85 a gallon. Tap water costs much less than a penny a gallon.
Combination systems are available for both Drinking Water and Shower Filter Systems for a couple hundred dollars.

Good to Know: The Pitcher and Canister Strategy - At a fraction of the cost of bottled water, 'Pitcher Filters' pay for themselves in just a few months. A quality canister may actually costs more than the pitcher, so at about $20 each the payback would actually comes in less than a month if you or anyone in your family buys more than a bottle a day from the convenience store.
Look for pitchers that combine granulated activated carbon that is often derived from coconut shells and advanced ion exchange beads to trap and hold contaminants. This takes out the bad taste of tap water chlorine and other sources of unpleasant tastes, odors and also reduces particulates such as sediment, rust, and scale which can come from plumbing fixtures. Also look for a pitcher that can fit in a typical refrigerator door so that it does not take up other valuable space.

Whole House Water Filters - Why spend extra money on bottled water and water 'softeners' when you can get a system for your whole house? Filtered water at every faucet and in every shower reduces chlorine and chlorine-resistant parasites at the point of entry saves your health and money. Since the 1980s we have increased annual plastic bottled water consumption from 1.5 to 9 Billion.
You may find that getting a high quality water filtration system for your refrigerator help reduce the need to buy as much bottled water.
