Why You Need A Water Purifier

While water may look clear and germ-free, there may actually be millions of microscopic bacteria and not just that.

Water that is left untreated could be making you physically ill and/or cause skin disorders.

Would You Drink This?

Common contaminates found in tested city or well water include:

Parasites

E-Coli bacteria

Pesticides

Heavy metals (including arsenic, mercury and lead)

Fecal matter

Petroleum and other industrial wastes

Pharmaceutical drugs

Finding Solutions

For many years now I’ve been purchasing large quantities of bottled water not realizing the harmful effects of all of the extra waste that somehow ends up polluting our oceans.  Even when I buy those fancy glass bottles, I’ve realized that I’m also contributing to more energy waste used to recycle them in addition to the extra added cost out of my wallet.

Many friends have either installed a reverse osmosis tank in their home which is great if you know that you’ll be staying at your house but for someone like me, I move quite a bit so that wouldn’t be a good investment.

Some grocery stores even sell large containers of water that you can go refill for pocket change but that gets old real quick.

Welcome Berkey!

Finally and gratefully I discovered the Berkey water filtration system.

Berkey to me seems to have superpowers because all I have to do is fill it up from my kitchen sink and the filter system easily purifies ordinary tap water.

It can even be used to treat natural water from lakes and streams without use of electricity. It’s great for those of us who live in areas where threats of hurricanes, for example, cause power outages for sometimes long periods of time and therefore reducing our access to clean water.

Berkey removes bacteria, viruses, chlorine, pesticides, herbicides, and fluoride.

It removes these unhealthy contaminants without removing the beneficial and nutritional minerals needed to support a healthy body.

The cost of water purification is just about two cents per gallon.  Berkey offers options to fit every family size and budget. They fit easily in most kitchens.

“Many water filters on the market may claim to be a water purifier, but do not meet the performance specifications required for this classification. In order to be classified as a water purifier, a water treatment device must remove at least 99.9999% of pathogenic bacteria and reduce viruses by 99.99%.” – Berkeyfilters.com*

*(Berkey has been tested by State and EPA accredited laboratories to exceed NSF/ANSI Standard 53.)

“Having a Berkey System is the best way to ensure your family has a constant supply of fresh, pure drinking water.”

Until then, be well!

  • Thanks for the thoughtful article on the importance of drinking pure water. When I’m in a hurry I often think ‘my fridge-filtered water is just fine… fill ‘er up!’ The truth is I KNOW it’s still polluted. :o/

    Love the Big Berkey! 😀

    • Thank you Zane. I agree. I think one of the biggest issues in regular refrigerator filters is that they don’t take out contaminants such as fluoride which can cause many hidden health concerns.

      That’s why it’s important to continue to do research on health related concerns. We need to keep learning ways to live the best life possible through optimal health!

      My passion is to provide a glimpse into the topic of healthy living for everyone.
