Why do I bother to filter my water?
- My tap water doesn’t taste very nice
- Filtering helps to remove chemicals such as chlorine and heavy metals from our tap water
- I drink a lot of water! Either alone or in dilute juice/cordial
- I like my water very cold so I keep the jug in the fridge too
I was horrified to realise that my water filtering habits were contributing to the plastic pollution crisis whilst using the brita water filter jug I had owned for years! The statistics show that more than 100 million water filter cartridges go into landfill every year!! 😱 #ThisNeedsToStop
I saw Phox water advertised online a while ago, I found the concept fantastic. It seemed expensive to get started though and so, I didn’t make the decision to switch for a few months after trying to go back to tap water and not enjoying it.
So, I made the leap and ordered the Phox V2 water filter system and it arrived 3 weeks ago. (arrived very quickly)
The Phox V2 jug has a removable cartridge which is used to fill with filtration granules that can be changed easily.
Phox offer 2 kinds of filtration dependent on your needs….
I have been using this jug for around 3 – 4 weeks now with no problems. It doesn’t leak, water is always clean and clear and tastes that way too. The jug holds around 2L of water 💧 and is easy to refill without having to remove any lids etc.
What is in the granules that you fill the cartridge with? 🤔 🧐
The granules come in a small packet which is plastic free, natural rice paper, along with a carbon felt disk in the same packaging.
What do Phox have to say about their product invention?….
It cost me £67.99 for the filter jug + 12 months supply of filter. So that cost is only once and covers a year period of use too (some people it may last longer for if you don’t use it as often).
You can also choose to go with the Jug + 3 month supply option for £39.99 but you do save on getting 3 months free if you go with the 12 month option.
There after a 3 month supply refill pack is £14 – working out at roughly £4.66 per month if you change the filter at the recommended time frames. Or, a 12 month supply is £50 – working out at roughly £4.16 per month.
And…. The most positive part of the switch!
Over all I am very happy with the switch and so pleased I made the decision. www.phoxwater.com
I have not yet thrown away the old brita jug as it is plastic 🙄 and I’m considering how I might be able to repurpose it.. maybe a whacky planter or a terranium of some sort? Do you have any ideas? Let me know!
More posts coming soon!!
Lots a love Dee xXx 💚
