Wotter, Wudder, however you say it, it's important to us!

Being as I am from NJ, I pronounce it WUDDER...


I drink so much water, that the endless filling up of water bottles and the Brita pitcher is getting old. I drink so much water!! I am curious about the water coolers that people have in their homes that you refill the jugs...

Anyone have them or recommend one?

But sister has a Brita pitcher, but I have the Brita, oh I don't know what they call it, but it's a large rectangular box shape with a spigot. Pretty convenient. About a 1 gallon capacity, so it usually lasts me at least a day, sometimes more, sometimes less. But yeah, the pitcher my sister has drives me crazy.

You can by the faucet mount filtration system for your kitchen faucet, but it slows down the output significantly.

You can also buy a counter top system (or stand alone) that is hooked up to your water fountain. These can usually be found at places like Lowes, Sams Club, Costco, etc. I don't think they are real expensive ($100 - $150), but will definately be less costly in the long run that the 5 gallon re-fills you were thinking off. We have them at work and they work fine.

I actually have a filtration system in my refrigerator. I would recommend looking in to that when you get ready to buy a new refrigerator.

we have a pur filter on our tap..i know that doesn't help you much considering you'd have to keep filling your bottles..
i've been meaning to get a klean kanteen. just to be a bit more green, plus they have different sizes! :)

Yeah, we have a Pur filter on our faucet too. I actually double filter the water. Since I just moved here I don't know much about their water. My older brother is a chemical engineer who worked in water filtration for a while. I have to get him to look at our water report.

The main problem is we don't have a full size fridge at the moment. Since we're living with the in-laws, we have a small fridge. It's bigger than a college dorm one, but definitely not full size.

We're looking at a house now, and if it goes through we need to buy a new fridge. I will make sure it hasa water supply on the door!!
