Best/effective system that can filter water properly

So I am trying to make changes in the house. Trying to drink more cleaner water. I am trying to find out more information about a filter system I can get for drinking water. One of them was in amazon called ISpring reverse osmosis for $179.99. I got good review but wow five different filter. Does anyone know if thats a good one and what else other their . How can I find out which one is actually efective. Since I want something that only takes out the bad things off the water but still able to keep the good minerals.

Unless your running a Dialysis center you do not a R/O filter.
A simple under the sink activated charcoal filter or even one mounted to the faucet will take out all the bad and leave the good.

First, what's in your water that you want to filter out? Without knowing that you are simply guessing. If you are just looking for "more cleaner water" the a carbon filter under the sink like Joe mentioned will do that. An RO system takes it to a whole other level in cost, complexity and water consumption.

Are you on well or city water?

Im on a well. I use RO..

If you are considering RO IMO the apecs are the best. 1 yr filter change of only 3 filters..

The others are changed in like 5 years...

Has the best membrane IMO dow filmtec membranes..

Its all I use and install..

If drinking water is all you want to treat, use the recommended charcoal filter. It works. Or just use a Brita pitcher sitting on you countertop - easy, effective, not expensive.
