The cost of bottled water adds up quickly, as do the empty bottles. Fortunately there’s a solution – home water filtration systems that filter out all the micro-plastics, heavy metals, chlorine, hormones, and other contaminants, leaving your with pure drinking water on-demand.
Those of us living in areas of the world with access to on-demand drinking water should consider ourselves lucky. Even if the water from your tap isn’t as pure as you’d like, it’s still better than none at all.
But… “good enough” isn’t really what we do here at Biohacker Blueprint.
And when it comes to tap water there are certainly areas for improvement. At best tap water typically contains chlorine and micro-plastics, and at worst it can even contain pesticide run-off and heavy metals like lead, mercury, and chromium (ever seen Erin Brockovich?).
Fortunately nowadays there are effective solutions for your home that will keep you from buying case after case of bottled water. Filtration systems, both built-in and portable, that filter out all the detrimental compounds that are potentially hiding in your water supply.
We’ve compiled our top 3 favorite water filters below – including our top picks for built-in systems, portable pitchers, and travel filters to bring with you on the go.
Sleek Sustainable Design
Long Lasting Filter

FULL BREAKDOWN: Top 3 Best Water Filter Systems for 2022
#1. Waterdrop RO Reverse Osmosis Water Filtration System
- NSF-certified everse osmosis filtration technology with a filtration accuracy of 0. 0001μm
- Effectively remove most contaminants including fluoride, TDS, limescale, and heavy metals in your tap water
- System is also NSF 372 certified for lead free material
- No-tank design is easy to install
- Filters up to 400 gallons per day
First up on our list is our new favorite built-in water filtration system, the Waterdrop RO Reverse Osmosis Water Filtration System.
This filtration unit offers a compact and easy-to-install unit that pumps out water filtered at the highest levels. Using reverse osmosis filtration technology with a filtration accuracy of 0. 0001μm, the system can effectively remove most contaminants including fluoride, TDS, limescale, and heavy metals in your tap water. System is also NSF 372 certified for lead free material.
The system installs under your sink in a matter of minutes and connects to it’s own nozzle (as you can see in the image above). When you turn the faucet on the base glows blue indicating that the filtration is working.
And one of the things we love most about this unit is its high rate of flow. They advertise it as 12 seconds per cup which is much faster than most reverse osmosis systems, and in our testing we’ve found it to be even faster than this if your home has decent water pressure.
The system also offers long filter lifespan and the replacements are extremely affordable (and easy to change out).
Overall the Waterdrop system is a new favorite of our team and has become a mainstay in many of our homes.
