Filtrete Water Station – Filtered Water for a Family on the Go!

I have a confession to make – I used to be a bottled water addict. I’d indulge this addiction regularly, buying some each week. I had a stash at home and at work, too. It was taking away money we could’ve spent on other things, and I finally realized it had to stop.

My first step was buying a water pitcher with a filter. This worked great at home, but I still found myself either buying bottled water for when we were out, or drinking a lot of soda and tea. Now, though, I have found a solution – the Filtrete Water Station!


The Filtrete Water Station from 3M provides the convenience of bottled water without the cost or waste. Unlike traditional filters that are slow and require separate bottles or glasses, the station filters water directly from the tap into four, reusable water bottles. In seconds, the water station helps reduce sediment, chlorine taste and odor from tap water.

The Filtrete Water Station quickly filters tap water directly into four 16.9-oz bottles. Its fast flow filter lasts longer than traditional water pitchers, filtering two and a half times more water than traditional pitcher filters and up to 100 gallons of water. The three-month filter change indicator shows you when it’s time to replace the filter; taking away the guess work.

We are really excited to have the Filtrete Water Station. It’s incredibly easy to use, and it’ll save us a ton of money while still allowing the convenience of taking water with us while out holiday shopping and running errands during this busy time of the year. Check out this video we shot of how to use the station, and you’ll see just how easy it is:

Once you’re done, you’re all set with four bottles of water to stick in the fridge or take with you wherever you go! The newest version has four different-colored lids for the bottles, making it easy to keep track of which bottle belongs to which family member.
