Water Filter

Time to consider your drinking water.

As we age and as we begin to start feeling the effects of aging, we begin to consider our health.  Part of that consideration is what we are taking into our bodies. One of the things that I have never really considered is the thing that I know I need more of but have neglected to make part of my daily routine and that is water!

So “I have a friend” that brought my water consumption, or lack of water consumption to my attention.  Evidently we are suppose to drink half an ounce to an ounce of water for each pound you weigh, every day.

For example, if you weigh 150 pounds, that would be 75 to 150 ounces of water a day!

I weigh much more tan 150 and I’m pretty sure that don’t consume 75 ounces a day.

Well that’s about to change!

Drinking Water Filter

The Best Water Filter

My friend introduced me to a company that appears to make the best water filters for filtering tap water into incredibly clean drinking water.  Here is a link to their website: KickAssWaterFilters.Com

A person could write a book about the differences in water filters, but here is the long and short of my own thorough research.

Their filters are certified by NSF which is an organization that does testing, inspections and certifications of different products, but much of what they do is water filtration.  Suffice it to say that the Kick Ass Water Filters are NSF Certified.

They have four main filters available, technically they have others, but these are the primary filters:


The top of the line of line filter that meets the highest standards of water filtration.  Certified to filter 99.9% of bacteria and viruses!  Excellent option for people that want amazingly clean water.  Hardware is $1035 and each filter is $150.  One filter will last for about 500 gallons of water.

NSF has 4 standards.  They are from least restrictive to most restrictive;

  • Standard 42
  • Standard 53
  • Standard 401
  • Standard P231


A large filter that has slightly better water flow and filters out most contaminants.  It will filter 600 gallons of water and runs $505 for the hardware and $125 for the replacement filters.

It meets the following standards:

  • Standard 42
  • Standard 53


Aquavers is slightly smaller than the Aquaperform, however it has a slightly higher life cycle and it meets all but one of the NSF standards.  It will process approximately 750 gallons.  The price of the hardware is $385 and the replacement filters are $70.

It meets

  • Standard 42
  • Standard 53
  • Standard 401


The Aquamini is designed to be a portable filter that you can take in an RV or even travel.  It is small in size, but it still meets high filter standards.  The lifecycle of the filter is approximately 250 gallons and the cost of the hardware is $195.  A replacement filter is $45.

  • Standard 42
  • Standard 53
  • Standard 401

*All of the filters can be configured as;

  1. Under-counter, with a faucet at a sink.
  2. Countertop with a spout that is attached to the filter and to a diverter at the tap to feed the water to the filter and spout.
  3. Tap filter with a diverter that is mounted to a kitchen faucet and is dispensed at the faucet when the diverter is applied.

Obviously there is a bunch of information at the website, so feel free to dive into learning more about water filtration.

In addition, filtered water makes your drinking water smell better and taste better which makes tea, coffee and lemon-aid and fruit waters all taste cleaner and better.


I’m already working on the next post which will show that the cost of the certified clean and filtered water costs less per gallon than a vast majority of bottled water.  I have yet to successfully find any information as it relates to the quality of filtering, if any, to bottled water.  This makes me think of a guy filling water bottles out of a garden hose…  😂

Even more importantly, you may be interested to know that a plastic water bottle takes about 450 years to decompose!
