Our AquaTru units with classic filters are designed to turn tap water into purified water. They are not designed to impact the pH of water. Depending on the unique properties of your local tap water, the purified AquaTru water may have a neutral pH or fall in a pH range above or below that (normally from 5 – 8).
If you love the mineral-rich taste of water (similar to brands like Evian or Arrowhead) and the healthy benefits of mineral-rich, alkaline water, our Alkaline purifiers with Ph + Mineral Boost Carbon filters are made just for you. Our Alkaline models create alkaline water with the addition of minerals like calcium and magnesium to support healthy hydration.
Some people have a preference for alkaline water and use a device to boost the pH above 7. Some people prefer their water slightly acidic and add lemon or lime to their water which will reduce the pH of water below 7. There is no scientific evidence favoring any particular pH of water. The most important factor when drinking water is that the water should be pure and free of harmful contaminants.
If you prefer the crisp, mineral-free taste of water (similar to brands like Aquafina or Smart Water), we think you’ll love our classic Carbon VOC filter to quench your thirst. It purifies and polishes your water without any added minerals that alter taste.
