A water filter is a great thing to keep in your One 51 Place apartment because it helps you reduce the amount of waste you would produce if you were always drinking bottled water. For the most part, water filters come in two varieties: filter pitchers and tap filters. The pitcher variety has a removable water filter at the top of the pitcher, so as you fill the pitcher with tap water, the water goes through a filter system that removes impurities. A tap filter screws onto your kitchen or bathroom faucet so that the water is filtered as it leaves the tap.
While either type of filter would be ideal for use in our apartments in Alachua, Florida, both types of water filters have advantages and disadvantages:
- Water pitcher filters – The benefit of water filter pitchers is that you can keep a pitcher of filtered water in the refrigerator at all times, which means your water can be kept chilled, though the downside is that you will only be able to store about a gallon of filtered water at a time.
- Faucet water filters – The benefit of faucet water filters is that the water is filtered continuously as it runs through the tap, so you can get as much filtered water as you want without having to worry about refilling a pitcher. You can also get filtered water at any temperature that comes out of the faucet. In general, however, the faucet filters are slightly smaller than the pitcher filters and may need to be replaced more frequently.
Drinking a nice glass of cool filtered water or a mug of tea made with filtered water is just one way that you can sit back and relax in your One 51 Place apartment. Our apartments have a variety of comfortable, luxurious features, including enormous walk-in closets, color-coordinated ceiling fans and window blinds, Roman tubs in select bathrooms, and sit-down bathroom vanities.
