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 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!

  • 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.

    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!

    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 :)

  • 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 :)

  • 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 ;) 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

  • I have no trouble drinking lots of water; I always have a cup by my side. I’m a thirsty girl! :)

  • I like you and Aquasana on FB

  • Lisa

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

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • Chad Rickman

    I liked detoxinista facebook page!

  • 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

  • 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.

  • Rebecca

    I TWEETED about Detoxinista :)

  • 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

  • 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!!!

  • 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!).

  • I also liked both FB pages :-)

  • 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!

  • I ‘Liked’ both you & Aquasana on Facebook! :)

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • Karen

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

  • i always have a water bottle on me!

  • “Liked” both the Detoxinista and Aquasana Facebook pages!

  • 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!

  • 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 !

  • 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. :-) And of course, if we’re leaving the house to run errands, reusable water bottles kept ready in the fridge come with us. :-)

  • 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–

  • Jenny Martin

    like both on FB

  • Elena Vo

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

  • Elena Vo

    Liked both pages on Facebook as Elena Vo.

  • 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)

  • 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.

  • 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 :)
