A new purchase to replace our normal water filter is this fabulous Bobble water jug. We have one in the office and the water really doesn't taste or anything - it removes the flavour of chlorine and other water additives - especially found here in London. I love the smooth design shapes too although it doesn't fit into the fridge door. Fortunately I can fit it into the salad compartment as the shelf above is broken - it's called making the best of a bad situation.
The best thing is that each filter lasts for 150 litres before you need to change the filter, and it comes with one free. I don't often buy things for my kitchen (or household items in general either if I'm honest) but couldn't resist. Unlike my other filter which allowed water to get trapped between the jug sides and the top where it festered and occasionally went green this filter has no-where for water to get trapped so is much better. It holds 2 litres and has 4 colourways (our local shop had just two and I thought white went with everything really). The filters are £10 each so coming with a spare one was brilliant value as the complete jug/set came to £20.
The carbon filter has a slight electro-positive charge so chemicals and impurities are attracted to it and as the water passes over the negative ions of the contaminants are drawn to the surface of the carbon granules - that is why this water really does taste so pure.
