Allergy Buyers Club AquaCera HCP Countertop Water Filter Review and Giveaway!

Do you know whats in your water?  Every day our local governments pump all sorts of "health" giving chemicals into our water supply.  Things like chlorine, fluoride, and a plethora of other chemicals are added to our water supplies every day.  What's worse is that most of these chemicals have not been tested for long term exposure safety, meaning that the government has no idea what 20 years of exposure does to the human body.

AquaCera HCS Stainless Steel Countertop Water FilterTo top this off many of our water supplies are contaminated by parasites and even prescription medications!  We recently went through a water crises in our own town where a parasite got into the water supply.  It took months to be resolved and many people got sick.  Also you couldn't use the water without boiling for 20 minutes!  Lucky for my family we had a good water filter that effectively filtered out the parasite so we didn't get sick! Needless to say having a good water filter is very important to our health.  Also we live in an old mining community, meaning that there is a high probability of heavy metal contamination in our water supply from the old mines.

AquaCera HCP Countertop Water FilterAllergy Buyers Club sent me the AquaCera HCS Stainless Steel Countertop Water Filter with CeraMetix™ Filter for the purpose of review.  Allergy Buyers Club is a company that Since 1998,  have been an authorized online retailer by numerous manufacturers for all of the healthy home products they sell and a trusted source for honest product reviews and ratings. The company is also a top rated member of the Better Business Bureau. You can read more about them HERE.

The AquaCera Filter they sent me is one of the better quality ones on the market.  Frankly the filters you find in places like Walmart are not going to get things like heavy metals, fluoride, chlorine, or parasites out of your water.  And your going to pay a similar price for them as for the base model of the AquaCera.  The features of the AquaCera are pretty awesome!  They had everything I was looking for in a water filter.

That is a great filter! Especially for the price! When we got the filter it was super easy to install.  As soon as it was ready to use we tried it out for taste.  I was pretty amazed!  We have great tasting water in our little town, but the AquaCera Filter actually made it taste better.  I didn't think that was possible.  Also it looked even clearer.  Another thing is that the flow rate was very fast.  Some of the higher quality filters take a long time to fill a glass of water but the AquaCera is very fast.  The kids love using it and even our 5 year old can do it with no help. 

This filter gets a 10 out of 10 rating and so does Allergy Buyers Club.  I would recommend Allergy Buyers Club to anyone looking for healthy living solutions at good prices and with excellent service.  You can subscribe to their emails HERE to receive news and special features and go HERE to request a catalog.
