Never Buy Bottled Water Again With This Countertop Water Filter

Say good-bye to bottled water. No longer will you need to waste money on paying for overpriced bottled water. And no longer will you be generating more trash by purchasing a one-time-use plastic container of bottled water.

In 2011, Americans bought 9.1 billion gallons of bottled water, equally 29.2 gallons per person. Only 27% of those bottles are recycled.

But this doesn’t mean you also have to say good-bye to filtered, pure tasting water. WaterO is the answer to a problem a lot of RVers have. As we travel to different cities and towns, we drink water that varies in quality of taste and is sometimes from questionable sources.

The new way to drink water: WaterO.


WaterO purifies water through reverse osmosis without the headache of installing plumbed-in connections and taking up a lot of space. Instead, this countertop appliance only needs about a square foot of counter room (13.4 x 10.6 x 13.9 inches to be exact) and the only installation required is the ability to plug its cord into an electrical outlet.

What exactly is reverse osmosis filtration?


Reverse osmosis is a water treatment method to remove contaminants by forcing water through a semi-permeable membrane. WaterO uses four water filters that remove 99.99999% of impurities, way more than what water filters like Brita do, leaving you with the purest water to drink. Not to mention, water filtered from WaterO tastes like bottled water because it removes salt and chlorine.

Great tasting water without the plastic bottle.


The best part about its filtration system is that it minimizes the amount of water wasted during the cleansing process. Other residential reverse osmosis systems are only 5 – 30% efficient, but WaterO is 75 – 80% efficient. The non-pure water is captured in a pitcher so that it can be used to water plants and flush toilets.

Easy to use, no installation required.

Using WaterO is simple: plug WaterO into a receptacle, turn it on, fill the pre-filtered 3 liter water tank with tap water, choose the amount of water you’d like to have filled in your glass, push a button, and voila – you have purified water to drink. The filters are an easy “turn and pull” action to replace when they need to be changed.

Its four filters are quick to change and will last 8 months to 1 year.


WaterO has a beautiful sleek and modern look with an LED touch screen that you’ll be happy to display on your countertop.

It’s also smartphone connected so you can know the purity levels of the water you’re drinking, when filters need to be replaced, the amount of plastic you’ve spared, and be reminded to drink water so you stay hydrated.

WaterO makes it easier to drink filtered pure water without generating a lot of trash or a lot of work.
