AquaTru, found online at AquaTruWater.com, is a company that says they are the first and only countertop reverse osmosis water purifier that creates bottled water straight from your tap, with no installation required.
How Does It Work?
According to their website, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulates about 100 contaminants in our tap water, but they claim that there is a study which shows that there are over 300 harmful contaminants in tap water.
And though many people already own filtration pitchers or use faucet filters, the AquaTru website says that they offer a purification system which means that they can remove toxic chemicals that other filters can’t. In fact, the AquaTru system offers four stages of purification, starting with a Mechanical Pre-Filter, then a Reverse Osmosis Pre-Filter, a Reverse Osmosis Membrane, and an Activated Carbon Filter.
The AquaTru website says that while most pitcher filters are designed meet 13 of the National Sanitation Foundation’s standards for water and faucet filters meet 58 of the NSF standards, but their purification system is able to meet their standards for all 128 chemicals and gasses.
And in addition to keeping you and your family safe, the website also says that their filter is able to help preserve the environment while saving your family money. Since their filter lasts for two to three years, depending on your usage, after five years of AquaTru the average family can save between $100 and $2800.

The website says that they believe their product will be ready for delivery in July of 2016, but they recommend following their Facebook page to get regularly updated information on delivery.

Customers who believe that they deserve a refund for any reason should contact their Customer Service team as soon as possible to see what can be done for you.

Unfortunately there are not many reviews available of these products at this time, because it simply isn’t yet available on the open market for regular customers. There are some reviews available, all of which appear to be on affiliate or partner websites, meaning that it is difficult to tell how unbiased these reviews might be.
Without customer reviews, it is difficult to determine whether or not this purification system is worth the investment, customers can use available information to determine whether or not they need such a system in their home.
Ever since the Flint Water Crisis, people have rightfully become concerned about the quality of their tap water, and though the general understanding is that tap water in the United States is safe for most people, the level of safety does depend on where you live and your personal health. Pregnant women and people undergoing chemotherapy, for example, have much higher standards for water safety.
The Environmental Working Group provides a National Database of water quality for people interested in seeing what kinds of contaminants are common in their local area tap water so you can see whether or not you want to invest in a filter or purification system.
