Research your water quality to determine which filter is right for you. The Bud Booster is designed specifically for city water that contains chloramine, chlorine, and fluoride with a total dissolved solids (tds) level below 300 parts per million (ppm). This will typically be in cities where the water supply is from snowmelt or rain or river water, but may not including the large major rivers of the U.S. If you do not know the level of tds in your water you can call your local water provider, either the city or a private company, and ask them.
While minerals in water are generally considered to be a good thing you, the grower, will be adding minerals in exactly the proportions you desire.
Another practice of mine is to closely review your local water quality report. These may also be called a Consumer Confidence Report. Your water provider is required by law to give this to you. It will list those contaminants that are currently regulated by USEPA. If you have high levels of nitrates, radioactive metals such as uranium, or other metals you may wish to call me. We can review your water report together and determine which filter will suit you. You can learn how to find your water report here.
Which Water Filter is Right for You
If your tds is below 300 purchase the Bud Booster. If your tds is above 300 purchase my custom reverse osmosis system. This will take the tds level from whatever it is down to about 10 ppm. If you have high nitrates or radioactive metals purchase my reverse osmosis system. Check out How to Dechlorinate Tap Water naturally.
I can’t tell you what your tds is, only your water provider can do that. If you need help in determining which filter you need due to other contaminants please call me during business hours. Other contaminants present in your water may also be a concern. If you have questions, call me:

If you do know what is in your water and what you want to remove, find your local water quality report. If you have well water, call me about a water test. Learn more about well water testing here.
