Purchased Zero Water countertop water filter - Nov 2019

many different sizes, all models include a small meter to test to amount of dissolved solids
Removes 99% of microplastics and 100% of Glyphosate, Fluoride, etc.
Amazon $29, 3,000 reviews - also WalMart, Home Depot, etc.
Great 2019 review compared many filters - taste, quality, ergonomics, etc found Zero to be best
Removes beneficial Magnesium ions from the water (10 mg/liter)- but I take daily Magnesium supplements anyway (400 mg/day)
It is not practical in areas with hard water (there is a US harness map at their website)
   the filter stops at 18 grams - will not last a month if there is hard water
Uses some of the chemicals used in RO systems
you can recycle 2 filters for $10 - but you pay the postage
Got it - tastes great!
