For me, drinking water has always been a chore. Water straight from the tap never tastes quite right and bottled water is just too expensive (and wasteful with all of those plastic bottles). I’m far too lazy to hook one of those over-the-faucet filtration systems on my kitchen. So that leaves me with water pitchers. I recently started using the Laica filtration system and it’s not your ordinary filtered water pitcher.
The Italian made LAICA Stream 3000 Series is a .60 gallon pitcher with a sleek design and comes in an assortment of modern and bright colors. For someone like me, this is the perfect sized water pitcher to use as a goal for daily water intake. It’s suggested that women drink about .56 gallons of water per day. As someone that struggles to drink enough water daily, this pitcher is perfect for using as a daily goal!
The real difference for this particular pitcher is that it works with a bi-flux™ filter that helps preserve the beneficial and essential minerals, Calcium and Magnesium, naturally present in tap water as recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO). Most filtered water system strip these important minerals!
Each Laica pitcher comes 4 main pieces. There’s the pitcher, the lid, filter, basket and removable electronic cartridge life indicator. Set up is fairly simple. You just need to soak the filter, rinse it, run water through the pitcher a few times and set the life indicator.
This system comes with a lot of useful features! From left to right … the pitcher itself is very narrow making it perfect for tight spaces in the refrigerator. The clear pitcher makes it easy to see when it’s time to add more tap water. The electronic cartridge life indicator automatically lets you know when it’s time to replace the filter. Four black bars will decrease in 25% increments and lasts for up to 40 gallons of water. The quick fill lid features makes it easy to add tap water without removing the entire lid and keeps dust particles and other contaminants away from your water.
Features aside, the best part of this product is the flavor of the water. It actually tastes like water should, nothing but cold, refreshing and clean!
