    Have you used or thought about using Brita or a similar filter for your top water? Did you like...

    the taste or do you think it does a good job filtering the water? The kind where you fill the container with top water and wait for it to pass through the filter.
    I've used it for a while and then I stopped because I noticed some particles in the water after it had been filtered.

    Yes I use one now. I enjoy the water and it helps me drink less bottled water.

    I prefer to purchase bottled water.  It is easy to carry in the car or office or other places.  When you start using filters you should have the directions that came with the purchase.

    I attached one to the kitchen faucet in attempt to cut down on bottled water.

    The water taste better and it has fluoride in it which most bottled water doesn't.

    They actually make bottles that filter water. Fill it from the tap and go. But I've used Brita; I've used Pur; I currently have a tap mounted PureH2O counter-top unit and swear by it.

    I use one daily.  I prefer Brita filtered water to bottled water.  Trying not to buy too much bottled water for obvious reasons.

    My wife used to buy bottled water exclusively. Now we use Brita as well.

    Yes I've used it in the past. It is pretty efficient and the water does have a cleaner taste and clearer look. It isn't the best filter out there but it is convenient and economical. It's worth having and using.

    i'd use a brita over bottled water. it drives me nuts when i see people walking around with bottled water and it makes no sense what so ever.where i live the water is concidered to be quite safe so i don't worry about filters. if you are worried about the water in your area , use a filter but please use your head and leave bottled water alone, it's an enviromental disaster.

    I use my brita water machine every day.  It's a good idea to use one if you have alot of dirt in your well.

    I've used myself and the water doesn't have any weird taste. The only silly thing is when the water runs unclear , that is when the battery is about to finish or the inside 'black coal' filter is filled.It usually lasts for about 3/4 months before you change the actual filter inside. It saves on bottled-water consumption.

    I have been using Brita since 2007 and I like it the water tastes good whenever I use that staff. That black particles is what you need to get rid of it.
