I am not fond of drinking tap water for all kinds of reasons, and over the last year I have recycled way too many plastic bottles. I also started investigating the safety issues of plastic bottles and decided it was about time to invest in a home system and stainless steel water bottles.
My first home water system came as home delivery with a rented cooler, but I found it expensive and the cooler was massive in my small kitchen. I long for a much bigger kitchen, but that’s another story (LOL)! The second attempt was carrying my own refills to the locate water store which closed after the city I live in upgraded its primary water system. I have also lugged water from the grocery store, but frankly this is a pain, especially for those with temperamental backs. So I started looking at alternatives and there are a lot of them to consider and at varying prices. After much research, and some help from a really good friend, who knows her way around a water cooler, I think I have found a system that will work for me.
I settled on the Santevia enhanced water system with PH control. Santevia is cost effective as I just use water from my tap, and eco and back friendly, no more plastic bottles or lugging big water jugs around. It uses an eight stage filtration and re-mineralization system which cleans, mineralizes and invigorates your water while adjusting the pH level to mildly alkaline, a very healthy blend. And you don’t have to plug it in, it works via gravity.
