What is the most economical way to filter drinking water for home use?
What are the best options for removing chemicals from your drinking water without spending a fortune?
We use a Britta filter. I don't know how good it actually is, but I haven't noticed any impurities in the water, and it certainly tastes cleaner than regular tap water.
The filters don't cost a lot, and they last about three months or so, depending on how much use they get.
I like our Britta, so you can give that a try. I used to use the kind you screw onto the faucet, but we got a new sink which wasn't compatible and switched to a pitcher. There are other brands out there, but I can't say which is better.
Here on my farm in Brazil, we drink well water. I have a tap for normal water and also one behind that holds a filter cartridge. I use this when we are going to drink it but not for cooking. For coffee and tea I use just the normal water.
The filters I use are cheap. Here they are about R$6.50. That is about $3.00 and they last for a couple of months. They are a combination of charcoal and I believe a fine pumice. I actually wrapped a fabric mesh around it to extend the life of it. Periodically I take the filter and mesh out, give it a scrub with a soapy bleach solution and reinsert it.
For us this works well and is quite economical.

Would you rather have drinking water without fluoride?We don't swallow the fluoride when we get a treatment at the dentist. Why should it be in drinking water? Is cavity protection worth the known health...
