Water Pitcher Filter Systems
Water pitcher filters are self-contained “filter systems”. The filtration is carbon filtration, offering chlorine removal and some sediment reduction. Pitcher filters are “gravity fed”. As you pour the water into the pitcher, the water passes through the granular activated carbon and into the bottom reservoir. Some of the advantages of pitcher filters are:
- Low cost of ownership and maintenance
- Simple to use, easy to change filter cartridges
- Simply take out of the box and start using, there is nothing to install

More About Water Pitcher Filtration Systems
For the most part, a pitcher filter system continues to be one of the most popular and convenient ways to access clean filtered water at home. In general, a pitcher filter is inexpensive, easy to find, easy to store, and very easy to use, requiring no installation.
Most of the time a water pitcher filter requires you to fill a portion of the pitcher with water and wait as gravity pulls it through the actual pitcher filter system. The water then drips down, filling a separate area of the pitcher from which you access your clean water.
But their simplicity comes with a cost. In general, the less complex the water pitcher, the less filtering it actually does. A pitcher filter does a good job of filtering out basic contaminants like lead, but has a more difficult time with complex chemicals like volatile organic compounds (VOC's) or benzene.
A pitcher also requires more frequent filter changes, too. Since many of them use activated carbon filters, you need to make sure that they're changed regularly (typically every 2-3 months) or they can begin to mold.
But if you're looking for a quick and easy solution in order to have better tasting water, a pitcher filter might just be your best bet!
