Drinking clean andhealthy water is vital for sustaining life, andknowing what’s in your tap water is the first step to ensuring your drinking water is safe for consumption. In case your drinking water isn't sufficiently clean, there are many ways to purify it. One of the most economical and convenient methods is using a water filter pitcher, since they're easy to use, maintain, and refill. They can also remove impurities that may be impacting your water's taste and giving it an odor.

To help you find the best water filter pitcher for your needs, we've compiled a list of the 7 best water filter pitchers on the market today.

1. Mayu Swirl

Mayu Swirl Earth Water Pitcher Filter

With the Mayu Swirl water pitcher, you get water just as nature intended it—reoxygenated, balanced, and structured. The Mayu Swirl uses the gentle, elemental strength of a vortex to restructure the water you drink.Structured water has a variety of health benefits, including improved hydration and detoxification. It also provides greater energy, mental clarity, and overall well-being. Filtering your water with a structured water device has also been linked to better absorption of vitamins andminerals, increased cellular oxygenation, improved digestion, and enhanced immunity. In addition, it can help reduce inflammation and improve skin health.

Vortex water filters are the best type of water filter available, and the Mayu Swirl is a great choice for those looking for a reliable and efficient way to reapthe benefits of filtered drinking water.

2. Pur Classic 11 Cup Pitcher

The 11-cup capacity of PUR Pitcher makes it great for larger households. Its space-saving design fits easily in the fridge, and a filter change light lets you know when it's time to replace the filter. Plus, it's dishwasher-safe and BPA-free for safe and healthy consumption. And with the Stay-Tight lid and LockFit™ design, you'll get a secure fit on the filter every time.

However, despite PUR's filters' good reputation when it comes to purifying water, they don't quite measure up to the top competitors, and they're even prone to clogging.

3. ZeroWater Filter Pitcher

ZeroWater is an excellent water filter pitcher—while it won't remove all contaminants, it outperforms most of its alternatives. Plus, it's affordably priced.

This NSF-certified filter abides by Standards 42 and 53—the former pertains to reducing chlorine and hydrogen sulfide, while the latter refers to eradicating lead, chromium-6, and mercury. ZeroWater proudly touts its ability to not only reduce Total Dissolved Solids in your drinking water but also eradicate contaminants such as pharmaceuticals, chloramine, pesticides, fluoride, and arsenic.

Nevertheless, some of the cons of this particular item include its slow filtration rate, a lid that slips when pouring, and a filter that doesn't have a long lifespan.

4. Seychelle pH20

The Seychelle pH2O water filter pitcher is a great choice for anyone looking to improve the taste and quality of their drinking water. It increases the water's pH up to 9.5, which the manufacturer claims can help hydrate the body more efficiently and maintain a healthy pH level, flush out toxins, and aid digestion.

The water filter is made with non-BPA leaching plastics and has been tested to NSF/ANSI Standard 42 & 53 by Broward Testing Laboratory. With its large 64oz capacity, it can filter up to 150 gallons of water.

On the negative side, the package includes only one pair of filters, and replacing these can be costly.

5. Epic Pure Water Filter Pitcher

The Epic Pure pitcher boasts a capacity of 8 cups in the lower reservoir and 6 cups in the upper, it's BPA-free, and removes many contaminants such as lead, fluoride, microplastics, chromium-6, and PFOA. In addition to being great at eliminating a whole host of toxic substances, it has a built-in filter timer so you don't forget to replace it.

However, there have been complaints that pouring water from the reservoir can lead to spills and that the replacement filters for this model cost more than its alternatives.

6. Brita Water Filter Pitcher

The 10-cup Brita Everyday Pitcher's standard filter does wonders to improve the taste of water. This system is NSF/ANSI 42-certified for the removal of chlorine taste and odor, plus zinc, while also being NSF/ANSI 53-certified to reduce cadmium, copper, and mercury. This makes the Britta pitcher an efficient all-in-one solution.

However, the Britta filter isn't up to the task of removing fluoride, lead, chromium-6, or biological contaminants like bacteria and viruses, so you'll need to look elsewhere if you want to filter untreated tap water. This pitcher's maintenance is also pricey, as the filter needs replacing after you've gone through about 40 gallons of water—or roughly every 2 months.

7. ProOne Water Filter Pitcher

The ProOne Water Filter Pitcher differs from most other filters on this list in that its filter is made of silver-infused white ceramic and ProSorb™ granular activated carbon-based media, which allows for reusing the filter for up to 6 months, or 225 gallons of water. This pitcher is also versatile, as you can use almost any kind of water, including well water, lake water, pond water, river water, and even rainwater. So, it's perfect for those unexpected situations, like camping trips or emergency use, while also being great for everyday use. All in all, it can store 3.5 liters of liquid, with 1.5 liters of it being filtered water.

Unfortunately, however, due to the type of filter it utilizes, this pitcher is less efficient at filtering than its competitors. Additionally, the main grievance users have is its difficulty to pour.

Bottom Line

If you're looking for the perfect filter to enhance the taste of your water, you can't go wrong with the Mayu SWIRL! Although other choices on our list can do just fine, Mayu goes beyond to enhance your water experience. Not only does it filter toxic substances andmicroplastics, but it restructures your water for optimal hydration and helps maximize your body's absorption of vitamins and minerals.
