I'm thinking of buying a brita water filter tomorrow...But are they really any good?
I'v heard mixed reviews as to wether it actually makes a difference in taste/health benefits?
Opinions please!! :)

I personally could not find a filter that removed 100% of everything (fluoride, lead, etc) and that did not need to have filters changed all the time. I even bought 2 Culligan systems only to find one was defective from the start (I only found that out by having the water tested at a lab). So I drink distilled water instead. It's 100% pure. I often add fresh juiced vege juice to my water to make my own "smart water"!
It makes a huge difference in getting the chlorine taste out of the water.
I love having a Brita filter, I've never actually heard anything bad about them?
It depends on what suits to your body. Distilled water is better.
I drink straight out of the tap and seem to be doing fine. I would avoid systems like ro or drinking distilled because of lack of trace nutrients.
Distilled should probably be used in moderation due to its lack of minerals and possibly its acidic effects
Check out the related questions on the right side of this Q&A page. This issue's been well-covered. Personally, I've used a 4-stage R.O. filter for tap water for a decade. If I lived in my own home, I'd put in a whole-house R.O. system.
