My sink with the sprayer.
Here is the filter I have.
I've only got the white part of the filter right now, the box looking thing you see in the diagram. I have to buy the attachment that goes on top of the sink where you get the water from.
Here is how I had my filter sitting up on the sink before, just the white box up on the counter next to the sink.
Older photo of my kitchen before counters were installed. See the filter on the sink?
Now that the counters are in and I have the new taller faucet, it just doesn't look right at all sitting the filter on top like that. So what should I do? Drill a hole in the butcher block to put it there so I can have the sprayer too or just replace the sprayer with the filter faucet? Maybe I could live with replacing the sprayer with the filter for a while and see how it works out before I go drilling holes in my butcher block. Decisions, decisions.
Speaking of filters, I have been wanting this waterfall shower filter for the longest time, so I think I may go ahead and get it. I never got it before because I liked having the hose attachment so I could clean the tiles and wash my dog and such. More decisions... haha.
When I lived in Atlanta, the tap water was awful there. It tasted very strong of chlorine and a medicine-y taste. I tried a bunch of different filters before I found one that filtered the chemicals to the point that I couldn't taste them at all. This is the Aquasana filter and I can't live without this thing now. I still have city water in the new town I moved to. It's nowhere near as bad as Atlanta tap water, but I can still taste a hint of the chlorine in it. I just feel better about having all of that stuff filtered out. My parents live in a smaller town in the mountains with well water that comes fresh from the mountain and their water tastes so perfect. Not a hint of odor or chemical or anything.
(I'm not affiliated, but I have to rave about how great this filter is.)
