Hey friends!  Hope you are all having an awesome Friday!

I recently installed a new faucet in my kitchen that I love!  My family drinks a LOT of water, and I thought this would be a perfect time to test out 3M’s Filtrete High Performance Drinking Water System!  I LOVE how easy this product is and I think you guys will too!  Here it is all set up with my faucet…

Fits perfectly and it’s so easy to have clean drinking water in no time!

The installation of this was super easy!  I just had to do a few simple steps…

The valve easily attaches to your existing water valve.  You just use a wrench to unscrew it, push the valve on, and then attach your water hose right back on… Simple.

The white tube attaches right to the valve with one push and then runs up to the filter!

This is also very simple to install.  It comes with a small green piece (seen at the top of the filter) that you attach to the wall with screws.  Then, the filter easily clicks right into it which makes changing it out a breeze!

Now for the faucet piece!

This is how it will look before you install it.  You will either need an existing hole (I chose to use the hole where I had a soap dispenser because we never use ours), or you can drill a new hole for the faucet piece.  It easily goes in the hole and then you use the attached bolts to tighten it from under the counter.

When it’s all finished it looks like this!

And I really compromised no space under the sink!

Now with a quick press of the button we have fresh, clean drinking water.  And you can actually taste the difference.  My kids love it too.  I actually caught my 6 year old hopping up and using it like a water fountain the other day… He won’t be doing that again :-), but I do like how they can easily use it too!

A few perks about this bad boy…

~The whole system can be purchased for under $100!

~ Takes up no space (which is precious around my house)

~Filters last up to 6 months!

~ I know that I am feeding my babies and family clean water… PRICELESS!

Another product that meets my list… Simple, fast and affordable!

I told our friends at 3M that I knew you guys would love this too!  They agreed to give one Shanty reader their very own Filtrete Drinking Water System!

  1. I like that it’s not installed to flow out of the existing faucet and is separate. Some filtration systems filter everything through the faucet and it seems like it would be a waste when it comes to filters if you are using “drinking water” for cleaning and everything else. We have a well and although it’s safe to drink the water I’m not a fan and I don’t fully trust well water…especially when sediment comes up occasionally. yuck!

  2. Love that the filters last up to 6 months, the one I’m currently using seems to need to be replaced every other week and the filters are so expensive!

  3. We are constantly purchasing bottled water and this would not only save us $$$, but save us space too. By space I mean, this system takes up barely any and we’d save space by not having to stock cases of bottled water. Excellent giveaway!!! 😀

  4. Love this! We are WATER drinkers in our house! We have 2 Britta pitches and they are always almost empty! It’s such a hassle to always fill them up! We would love this in our house!

  5. OMGosh! So glad you posted this! I’ve been so worn out by buying and lugging around water bottles & have been looking for a water filter system to install in our home! This fits the bill with cost, size & simplicity! So EXCITED- thank you for sharing!!

  6. I like that the water is filtered right at the sink. We have a filter on our fridge but for the coffee pot an other things it would be great to be able to filter form the tap!!

  7. My husband and I are looking into filter systems right now for our new home. Love the small footprint it gives and that the filter lasts for 6 months!

  8. We have a filter container system, but it doesn’t fit in the fridge and takes up a lot of counter space, so this would be ideal!

  9. I buy so much bottled water… and I panic if I get below one full case! I would love to know that I always had good drinking water! Thanks for sponsoring the giveaway!

  10. Filtered water makes coffee taste really smooth. If we won this unit we wouldn’t have to stand around, drumming our fingers on the counter top…waiting for the Brita to fill up.

  11. My favorite feature is the convenience of getting filtered water from my sink! I wouldn’t have to stand for 2 minutes at my fridge waiting to fill up my glass of water!

  12. I would LOOOVE to win this, considering the fact that the water in my town looks pretty questionable most of the time haha! And the fact that it only has to be changed every 6 months is just awesome! Crossing my fingers!!

  13. Thank you for the chance to win this. It would be wonderful for my daycare. I use our water from the faucet all the time. I think it is OK, but it would be nice to have it better for myself and the little ones. What a great idea!

  14. We live in the mountains and have well water. I would love to have this filter so we can stop buying bottled water. I love the simplicity of installing it. I’d love to have this in my kitchen.

  15. We have well water and this fine filter would make our water sooo much more “drinkable”!! Even if I don’t win it, I just might have to break down and buy one! Thanks for the info!

  16. Beyond the safe water- I love that it looks sleek and unobtrusive to visitors in the kitchen!! thanks so much – what a useful giveaway!! 🙂

  17. I had a filtration system at my prior home, 4 years ago. Boy, do I miss it! I would love to install the 3 M Filtrete Drinking Water System. It looks so compact! I feel like I am wasting money when I buy the plastic water bottles. But it is so important Not to drink tap water. Chlorine is not good for our bodies. Thanks for the opportunity to win this awesome filter system!! It would be so nice to have clean drinking water at our fingertips, once again.

  18. I like the idea that it takes up very little room. I would love to have one in the kitchen and one in our camping trailer. When traveling, you never know what the water is going to be like.

  19. Thank you for the opportunity. This is something the hubs and I have been talking about doing for ourselves for some time now.

  20. We spend so much money in bottled water, no to mention the plastic water bottles. We would so benifit from it.

  21. I like that it lasts 6 months. It seems like we have to change our frig filter every couple of months! Gets costly!

  22. Boy, I would love to chance to have one, but when the entry wanted to gather information from my google account and when I said no – it puts up an error and so I think it is a no-brainer just to say “congrats to the future winner” and thanks to the sponsors and Shanty2chic (Best blog!) for giving it away.

  23. I love that it doesn’t take much space under the sink, It’s great that it can fit in the space already drilled for the soap dispenser. It makes it more convenient to install and looks great.

  24. That’s clever! I like that you don’t have to mess up the pretty look of your faucet with a bulky white “Brita” attachment anymore. Sweet!

  25. Thank you so much for the generous giveaway. I live in an area where plastic waste frequently is dumped close to the waterways and I even read research on it where it says local water may lead to infertility 🙁 I would love to win the filter because it will provide my family with pure water and because it’s so easy to install for technology-challenged people like myself 😀

  26. Would love this option for clean water by the sink verses the fridge filter my cooking and making drinks. Thanks.

  27. I love how long the filter lasts! We just got a new faucet and can’t use the filter we used to have and I’m dying without our filtered water!!!

  28. It sure doesn’t take up alot of room under the sink and I would just be excited to win because I could finally end going to the store to fill up water jugs. We have well water.

  29. I love how small and affordable it is! Filtration systems aren’t usually so cost and space efficient! Excellent product 🙂

  30. I would love this! I have an old house so having filtered water straight from the sink would be so helpful and I could toss my Brita pitcher taking up valuable fridge space 🙂
