Aquasana Water Filter Giveaway

Our bodies are composed of more than 70% water, so the water we drink, shower and cook with can have a significant impact on our overall health. This is why simply adding a water filter to your home can make a big difference!


You may recall that I recently had the opportunity to try Aquasana’s Countertop water filter, which is a great solution for those of us in rentals or for those not ready to commit to a pricier under-the-counter unit.

Aquasana’s drinking water filters are NSF certified to remove over 97% of chlorine, over 99% of lead, herbicides, pesticides, cysts, asbestos, volatile organic chemicals in addition to chloramines, pharmaceuticals and over 50 additional water contaminants. While their filter technology provides maximum reduction in water contaminates, it also leaves behind the beneficial minerals found in water such as calcium, magnesium and potassium.

Here are a few more facts on the contaminants found in our nation’s tap water, provided by the EWG:

Not only will a water filter reduce these contaminants, it will also improve the taste of your water! (Especially if you live in a place like Los Angeles, where the tap water tastes terrible.)

    I always start and end my day with a glass of water. I always have water on my desk at work, in my purse, in my car, I never leave the house without my water bottle. I sometimes think I over-hydrate because I have to go to the bathroom so often, but I never stop myself from an extra drink of water. I figure better over hydrate than not drink enough. I also make sure to drink water after I have coffee.

  2. Erin W.

    Every morning I make a big pitcher of some type of flavored water: lemon, mint, cucumber, fruit, or sometimes tea added to the water. This infusion of flavor makes me want to drink it! Plus I keep handy travel bottles and never leave home without my bottle of water. We use a Brita pitcher, but I’d love to have the Aquasana water filter!

  3. Laura

    “Liked” both pages on FB and tweeted also. Here’s hoping I soon own an Aquasana filter soon.

  4. Rachel

    Right when I wake up in the morning I always begin my day with a glass of water! Throughout the day I try and refill my water bottle every few hours because I know how important it is to stay hydrated! I love to add lemon, raspberries, and mint to my water, its so tasty! I’ve been looking into buying a filter but they are so expensive ): this looks amazing I would love to have it!!

  5. KellyB

    I haven’t been very good lately with getting lots of water in me. A new kitchen gadget always helps increase excitement for getting back into good habits.

  6. Heidi

    I always keep a glass of water to drink by my bed and drink a glass in the morning. I also make sure to have a big, long sip of water whenever I start to feel hungry, then I eat about 15 minutes later. It’s a great way to make sure I keep drinking and it helps with digestion to not drink during or after eating. πŸ™‚

  7. Heather Williams

    Hi!:) Thanks for the giveaway! I drink water with lemon all day, along with lots of herbal tea ( especially peppermint and decaf green tea), plus I consume two 48 ounce servings of green smoothies each day:)And of course, I eat tons of veggies!:)

  8. Kristina

    Great giveaway!!! I love my 20 ounce lifafactory glass water bottle. I make sure to fill it up at least 3-4 times during the day. I find it much less overwhelming and easier to monitor than 8 glasses.

  9. Misty

    I drink large bottles of water on my commute to and from work! I also liked detoxinista and aquasana on Facebook.

  10. Leah

    I’ve been on a healing journey for the last 14 years; I was instantly paralyzed in a skiing accident that left me with no movement from the shoulders down. The docs told me I would never walk, write or hug again. Today, I walk with a cane, teach spinning classes and live to inspire others to overcome their greatest obstacles. You can understand how happy I was to find another great source of inspiration with Megan and her Detoxinista website and blog.

    With that said my only missing link is an excellent water filter! It’s just been out of my budget with all my other expenses. However, I do know the importance of good, clean water. Today, Β I use a Brita pitcher not ideal, but it’s what I have and some alkalinizing drops.. The way I make sure I get in enough water is by having with me, at all times a stainless steel 1 liter water bottle. Once I’ve filled it up 3 times, I’ve had my daily dose! I enjoy mixing it up and adding flavors. Like lemon or orange slices on a hot day, or cucumber and berries when friends come to the house. In the mornings I add a splash of apple cider vinager. I actually love just having pure water, but on the days that my body just doesn’t seem to want it I add a sugar free Emergency C packet and my body responds with downing the water.

    The funniest thing about my water intake is people hate a road trip with me…stopping every hour makes for a long trip! A side note, I know where all the best bathrooms are in town!! However, I’m always hydrated, energized and feel great!

    I apologize about the long post, but I am passionate about water and would love a filter! I liked both Detoxinista and Aquasana on FB. Thanks Megan for all your wonderful inspiration!

  11. Georgiana S

    I drink water all day long as it’s my first beverage when I wake up and my last before I go to sleep! I know I go over 8 glasses by far as it is the only thing I do drink!

  12. Diana S

    Just liked both pages..Thank You for being such a great source of information. I changed my diet back at the end of March to a clean eating lifestyle when I started my first AdvoCare 24 day challenge. Thanks to the challenge and clean eating I have lost 25 lbs, and I have finally found the motivation to keep on going. Thank You for all of the helpful information!!!

  13. Jennifer

    I have a 27 ounce Klean Kanteen that I carry with me, plus my pregnancy tea (8 ounces daily). I stay well-hydrated!!

  14. Summer

    I wish I could say that I drink enough water, but I have a hard time with it! I’ve tried the brita plastic bottles with built-in filters, but I’m not sure I trust it. Having a filter on the counter in which I could fill up larger bottles, would be great!

  15. Summer

    I just liked both pages on Facebook! I should have liked your page a while ago… I’ve been visiting your site often and sometimes forget that I can get your blog updates on FB.

  16. nicki

    Water! love love! I can really feel how much energy we get from it.
    first thing in the morning I have 3 tall (12oz) glasses of warm lemon water with cayenne before anything else. I find that if I measure my glasses or bottles its easier to know how much I need to drink.
    once I have my 36oz in the am it’s really easy to drink another 30oz or more.
    And I feel great throughout the day having started it fully hydrated.
    I have been doing research on water filters and am a bit overwhelmed. Thanks for the aquasana advice.
    AND! Thanks for this great blog! and your FB page! never thought to look you up over there.
    I love how all your advice is approachable and fun to do!
    thanks over and over!

  17. felisha

    When I wake up, I drink 2 cups of water with apple cider vinegar and throughout the day I carry a water bottle that fits almost 9 cups of water and drink it throughout the day. At night, I normally drink dandelion tea. These habits help me to always stay hydrated πŸ™‚

  18. Tami

    I start with a liter in the morning after getting up then just keep filling my cup throughout the day. My son’s favorite drink happens to be water and he LOVES to serve, so I often get extra cups during the day πŸ™‚

  19. Karianne

    Great give away!!! We are renting too so major filter systems are out… This one looks promising. We only drink water (and a cup or two of coffee or tea in the morning) so we don’t really have a need to remember to drink enough water. When you eliminate the other options its really easy to exceed your daily requirement πŸ˜‰ unfortunately we currently drink bottled water because I don’t trust the britta filter to filter the LA tap water (hi neighbor). Winning this would allow us to kick the bottle habit and reduce the waste!! Thanks for the opportunity

  20. Lisa

    I try and make sure I always have a water bottle with me at all times to ensure I get enough water.

  21. Erica

    I have always had to really try to drink more water, but now that I’m breastfeeding, if I don’t have my water bottle with me, I freak out!!! I liked both pages on FB. Thanks so much for all the info, I love your blog!

  22. Chad Rickman

    I bring a liter of water everywhere I go also I only drink water and maybe a glass a tea a day. I drink anywhere from 4 to 7 liters a day depending on my activity level.

  23. Larissa

    I have a quart glass drinking jar and every time I drink I just drink the entire thing. That usually equals out to 4 or so per day. And I always take water with me when I leave the house. It’s Florida during the summer so I drink it up in no time

  24. Rebecca

    Hi Megan~ I make sure to carry a 1L bottle with me everyday. In the morning to get my caffeine fix, I mix in some DO Matcha tea and a packet of Stevia. My goal is to drink 2 full bottles by the end of the day.

  25. Rebecca

    I already had your page “liked” for quite some time because I LOVE IT and now I’ve “liked” Aquasana as well on FB

  26. Merle

    Every morning I fill up my stainless steel water bottle with room temp water and squeeze a lemon in it – by the end of the day I have to stop myself from drinking (so I don’t wake up in the middle of the night!!) but it’s so thirst quenching and tasty, it’s not a chore at all!!!

  27. Hali

    Hello! What a great giveaway. I bring my stainless steel water bottle with me to work and fill it up about 3 times during the day. I also drink a big glass of water first thing in the morning (add lemon if I have it!).

  28. Lori @

    I have always been a big water drinker. I love water plain or with lemon and fresh mint. I always carry my 32 oz. Camelbak water bottle with me to keep me hydrated at all times. A water filter would be awesome!

  29. Melinda Johnson

    After my morning black coffee, I carry my Tupperware insulated cup and refill it all day long. I don’t drink anything else but the water.

    I liked both sites on Facebook and then I tweeted. Thank you for the entries! Loving your website.

  30. Karen

    I strive to drink as much water as possible. I always carry a huge reusable stainless steel water bottle with me if I leave the house. Earth friendly and friendly reminder to drink water!

  31. Linda K

    I keep it simple: I keep a reusable tumbler with me all day long. Lots of ice and lots of refills!

  32. Sue

    I drink three glasses of water as soon as I wake up in the morning and then have water at my desk all day long. I really like your idea of orange /vanilla I fused water which would add a little flavor ! Thanks for all your ideas!

  33. Maria

    I fill a big bottle first thing in the morning and then refill it every time I pass the sink to make sure I keep drinking!
    Thank you for the giveaway and great ideas !

  34. ACMommy

    I keep a food journal with a space to mark how much water I’m getting in, plus I keep a glass full ready for sipping. πŸ™‚ And of course, if we’re leaving the house to run errands, reusable water bottles kept ready in the fridge come with us. πŸ™‚

  35. Jenny Martin

    I need to drink more water–I don’t like it out of the tap, and water bottles get expensive–this would be a good way to make sure we always have water available! I was thinking a good tip would be to drink a bottle of water every hour–

  36. Elena Vo

    I have several pictures of waterfalls around my house, and each time I see one I drink a glass πŸ™‚ Works like a charm, and looks pretty in my house! Better than post-it notes.

  37. Andrea

    I drink half my weight in ounces everyday…and it’s easy because I fill up my klean kanteen twice and I’m there! (Also liked both pages on facebook)

  38. Anne

    I drink my coffee in the morning and when I’m done I re-fill my cup with water all day. It’s a 12oz. cup, so I’m pretty sure I get enough. I live in Buffalo, NY, and the water here is the worst. With all the pollution around I and my family could use a good water filter. I love your website and have tried many new recipes. I don’t know if your giveaway is closed yet, but I posted a comment anyway. Thanks.

  39. Donna Kelly

    I work in a hospital so I fill up one of the patient water pitchers straight away and sip every time I sit to do paperwork.

    I already follow you on Facebook πŸ™‚
