Hey there, water geeks!

Thanks for being here and I hope you're finding the website useful. If not, please drop me message, I'd love to hear why.

I'm James and thewatergeeks.com is my pride and joy. Water (and our difficult relationship with it) has been a great source of interest for me for the last few years, so when my friend suggested I start a website about it I got behind the idea very quickly (thanks Sarah!).

The fact is, there's not a great deal of transparency with some water filter manufacturers and websites and they seem to get away with half truths and diversion tactics.

This is alarming when access to safe drinking water is becoming more difficult than ever. New chemicals are constantly being identified in our water and we've seen time and again that the government can be slow in reacting to new dangers

Here at thewatergeeks.com I aim to provide unbiased, transparent, and trustworthy information on water filtration products and water health. I don't answer to shareholders and I'm not on their payroll.

Our team of experts (me!) works tirelessly to research and test different water filters so that we can provide you with the most accurate and up-to-date information. We're committed to being transparent about our testing methods and our results, so that you can make an informed decision when choosing a water filter.

We're also passionate about educating our readers on water health, hydration, and the importance of clean water. We want to be your go-to resource for all things water-related, and we're always here to answer your questions and help you make the best decisions for your health and well-being.

So if you're looking for a trustworthy and transparent resource on water filters and water health, you've come to the right place. Thank you for choosing TheWaterGeeks.com - we're excited to be your partner on your journey towards clean, healthy hydration!


Why listen to me anyway?

Well, as far as I can tell (please correct me if I'm wrong) there isn't another resource like this when it comes to water health.

There are regulatory bodies that list certified water filters (there are great resources here and here) but they don't explain costs, lifespans, maintenance, or ease of use.

There are also numerous water filter websites out there that "review" water filters. I'm not going to say most of them don't know what they're talking about but they don't know what they're.....whoops!

You'll notice that a lot of them proudly display a WQA (Water Quality Association) badge like a trophy things. This means one of three things. Only one of which is a reason to trust a website and it's also the least likely reason the badge is being displayed.

1. They're displaying it illegally.

2. They paid the WQA $2685 to be a part of the paid Industry Partner Program (IPP).

3. They're a legit member that knows their stuff.

Anyway, make your own conclusions.

I don't mean to appear salty, I'm just wise to the industry tricks and judging by the emails I receive I know a lot of you aren't.

I'm not here to pull the wool over anyone's eyes. If anything, I want to do completely the opposite.

That's why I am continuously studying and improving myself in the areas of household water treatment, water resource management, water sanitation, and water policy in the United States.

I'm doing 100% verifiable courses from esteemed universities like the University of Manchester, University of Colorado Boulder, University of Geneva, and École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. You can check out my progress on my LinkedIn page.

I want to be able to back up what I say with knowledge gained from real experts teaching at renowned universities, and my pledge to you is that I will continue to learn and improve myself as long as I'm part of the thewatergeeks.com!

Our team of writers regularly posts informative articles and guides that you don’t want to miss out on. Make sure you follow us on Facebook to never miss a thing.
