Should I Filter My Tap Water?

Should I Filter My Tap Water?

You care about the food you eat and getting enough exercise, but have you considered the quality of water you drink? 

High-quality healthy water is just as, if not MORE important as high-quality, healthy food.  The human body is made up of 70% of water, on average. Which leads to the question, is tap water the best water? If staying hydrated is a priority in your health journey, don't counteract your efforts by filling your body up with toxins found in water straight from the faucet. Skeptical? Enter your zip code in the Water Quality Search Tool to get a report on which contaminants and how much are in your area.

Long story short; should you filter your tap water? A resounding YES.  

Water Quantity and Quality

Quality Matters

Consider your produce. If cost wasn't a consideration, would you prefer genetically modified, pesticide-treated produce or would you prefer organic, non-GMO produce? 

No one wants to ingest unnecessary chemicals.

Now ask yourself the same question about your water!  Would you choose to drink water that has been chemically treated, and ingest these chemicals? Or water that has contaminants and chemicals removed? 

But my water provider treats my water, right?

Yes, however, how your water is treated is important. When you turn on your tap, you may be able to smell the chemicals, such as chlorine, used to treat your municipal water. Although chlorine is a proven method to successfully treat water for entire cities, it up to the consumer to take charge of their personal health and go one step further in removing leftover residue. Just like it's good practice to wash produce, it's good practice to filter tap water. 

Did you know 21 million Americans drink water that violates U.S. health standards?! For this reason, it's important to view your water provider's test results. We recommend checking out your water score with our tap water database.

Choose a filtering method that removes what the water treatment plant doesn't as well as remove what gets added in. A Berkey water filter doesn't use chemicals to remove things. It uses granulated media to remove and trap contaminants within themselves. Berkey not only removes chlorine, it also removes the by-products from chlorine such as haloacetic acids and trihalomethanes. 

What's a Berkey?

How is Berkey able to remove so many contaminants? 

In the simplest terms, Berkey's Black Filters are made of granulated media, so compact, with a pore size so small, that contaminants are trapped within the filter, never making it into your filtered water!

The Berkey purification process is unique and effective. Other filters on the market are not nearly as dense nor do they contain our unique proprietary makeup. For this reason, our competitor's filters do not remove close to the 200+ contaminants Berkey has been independently tested to remove. 

Can I afford to filter my tap water?

Can you afford NOT to? Making health a priority means investing in it. Allocating resources such as time, effort, and/or money, are important to achieving health goals. Berkey Filters out perform competitors in contaminants removed as well as cost per gallon. Get a more effective system for an overall better price. Not to mention the benefits and savings attributed to a healthier lifestyle. Systems start as low as $305 - which includes the two Black Berkey Filters (6,000-gallon capacity) for cost of 5¢ per gallon (total investment) - substantially less expensive than other filters.

Take control of the water you drink with a Berkey Filter. Make the choice today to cut out unhealthy water and switch to Berkey Water; you won’t be disappointed!
