Living in an older building with pipes that could only be described as "aged", I've always wanted a reverse osmosis system installed to improve upon the usual Brita/Pur pitchers we already use. But being a renter, installing a system can be expensive and we'd have to get sign off from our landlord to alter the plumbing. This tabletop filtration solution isn't cheap, but it's a convenient option for purifying tap water by first turning it into steam, converting it back to liquid, and then filtering it one more time through a carbon filter for a 99% reduction of "inorganic and radiological contaminants". The process takes about 4 hours, and up to 6 gallons of drinking water can be made a day, so we could imagine filling up one of those larger water storage bottle for use throughout the week.
