Working at Berkey, I’m asked all the time about water filtration, but underneath most questions I receive is really something simple: Why? And it’s a good question. Why is filtering water important, and why does it matter?
Now, if muddy, lumpy water flowed from our kitchen taps, the absolute necessity would be obvious. But for the vast majority of us, water flows clear and fresh from our sinks. So what am I filtering out and what is the point?
