  3. Convenience of the lid: if the family often uses water from the jug, it is advisable to choose a model with a cartridge resource identifier. He will help you not to miss the moment of replacement.

  5. Availability of cartridges for sale and the price of devices. Not well-known brands sell their products through dealer networks; replaceable filters are not available everywhere.
