which is better BRITA WATER or BOILED WATER?
« on: February 11, 2011, 06:01:29 am »
i feel brita water is better
because its filtered of its impurities
that remain in the pipes overnight.

So when we drink it its taste better than anything else
just my opinion(brita user)

Brita water taste much better than boiled water but boiled is much cheaper and safer.

WE have the Brita on our water and we love it it cost about 40 dollars a year to use so that is real not that much for us.

If you are really concerned, boil Brita water. Boiling kills things but doesn't remove much. A filter removes particles but doesn't kill everything. I recommend Vodka.

I agree with brita and boiled. But if you had to choose i'd go with filtered. At least it will taste good before it poisons you.lol

I think it depends on the water source.  My city tap water is fine just filtered.  But I would want to boil well water even if it tastes fine.

Hate to tell you guys but Brita filters are garbage....you need to test your water (even if u have a Brita) with ph strips and see for yourself.

I would love to get filtered water. We have well water and I usually boil it for drinking.

Filters, like Brita, use an ion exchange to remove unwanted minerals (like lead, iron, etc) in exchange for safer ones (like calcium, potassium, etc). They may also include an actual filter to remove particles. But you'd have to determine what size of particulates are filtered out and what size are let through; and see if that filtration size will remove any harmful microbes that you may be concerned about. If your concerns are about the minerals that get dissolved in the water, then filtering is probably best. If on the other hand you are more concerned about getting sick from microbes, then boiling would be best. Ideally, distilling water (boil the water, then let the steam condense in an unreactive cooling coil) would remove not only the microbes, but also the minerals as well. However distilled water tastes very bland (the dissolved minerals actually give the water a little taste to it), so most people prefer ion exchange to drink rather than distilled water (and usually distilled water is only seen in research laboratories, where even trace amount of minerals / particulates can affect the results of experiments).

Since I get my water from the city, it's mostly the mineral content that I'd be worried about, so I usually drink filtered water. But even if you get well water, you may consider filtering in addition to boiling, esp. if you live in an area with a high mineral content (ie if you have "hard" water).

Brita water is better for me. It filters all the impurities out so you have fresh drinking water . As opposed to boiling water where you have to wait for it to cool down just to drink it....
