vs. Filter Jugs
The convenient and cleaner option
Based on cost alone, the cheapest filtered water solution is a filter jug. It has a low one-off upfront cost and monthly replacement filters are also affordable.
However, the problems with fridge storage space, a relatively unsophisticated filtration system, the fact it can become a breeding ground for bacteria and the lack of an integrated hot water solution means that a filter jug may not be the smartest option overall.
