At Water Adept, we’re passionate about improving water quality for every family

Welcome to Water Adept, which is THE source of all things about improving your home’s water quality. We believe having clean, healthy water is a basic human right. Since it’s so essential to life, it should be a top priority.

Man filling the glass
Water is essential for our lives

But all too often, the quality of our water is taken for granted. We assume that when we turn on the faucet, we’re getting safe water. Chances are, it’s safe enough to not make us deathly ill, but tap water can have traces of chemicals and other contaminants that, over time, can do serious damage to our bodies, not to mention our plumbing systems and appliances.

And the taste? If you grab a glass of water right now from the tap, would you smell and taste chlorine? Rotten eggs (sulfur)? For most of us, our tap water isn’t going to taste…well…good. That leads many people to turn to unhealthier beverages like sodas and juice. Or they buy package after package of bottled water, which is not only costly, but all that plastic just ends up in the landfill.

We think that’s balderdash. So that’s why we’re on a mission to help every family have access to great-tasting, clean, healthy water at home.

Now For a Word From Our Editor

I never thought about water quality until one day when I came across a movie called Erin Brockovich. Talk about eye-opening. Curious about just how widespread poor water quality is in the US, I investigated the water crisis in Flint, Michigan – a crisis that is still ongoing. And worldwide? When I learned 2.2 million people die every year from bad water, I wanted to do something to help.

That’s why I teamed up with the folks here at Water Adept. Our passion is helping you improve the water in your home…no matter where you are.

But can you really trust us

At Water Adept, we don’t play favorites. No manufacturer ever sends us free products or money for reviews. These products are purchased by real customers and experts who, like you, don’t have a lot of disposable money or time.

The most expensive stuff isn’t always the best quality. And not every product is right for every person. That’s why we’re careful to list all the pros, cons, price ranges, product specs, and customer experiences so you can decide what’s best for you.

Knowledge is power, and we’re not afraid to bring it.

How do we keep the lights on

Contact us

All this website stuff takes time and money to keep functioning. So we keep the bills paid by hosting ads and through affiliate revenue from retailer websites. We do not take money from manufacturers for reviews – no way, no how, not ever. You feel me?

We love to hear from you!

See a product that’s not available anymore? Spot a product detail or bad link? Do you own a gadget that is just the bomb? If so, get in touch so we can keep our listings fresh and up-to-date.

Same with any helpful tips or newsworthy content you may come across. Don’t be afraid to give us a holler. We don’t bite…much.
