Legacy 105 Water Filter Reviews

Compare Top 12 Water Filters for Your Drinking Water

Look for... the Cleanest Water for the Least Money.
Highest Capacity.  Highest Flow Rate.  Chloramine Reduction.

In major cities like Miami, San Francisco, Atlanta, and about 400 other cities in the U.S. chloramine is used to disinfect water.  The ammonia in chloramine negatively impacts taste, turns stainless steel gray, and causes coffee machines to corrode.  Legacy reduces 99% of chloramine!
