The Benefits Of Having A Home Water Filtration System

contaminated water - needs a water filterWho needs a water filtration system?

If you live in the United States and your water comes from a public supply or a private well, then you do. There are an amazing number of contaminants in the water supply that need to be filtered out and the city water treatment plants cannot completely remove all of the elements on the list. Some slip through the cracks. The treatment facilities do little or nothing to remove chemicals from the groundwater. Well, water is probably safe, but chemicals do sometimes seep into your water supply. Chlorine, chemicals, and gasoline additives are just a few of the chemicals that you have to look out for.

If you think that you do not need a water filter, open your eyes and look around. The public utility in your area probably provides tap water for hundreds of square miles. Look at the businesses around your home. Look at all the people. Look at the pollution in the streams. Everything that goes on the ground eventually ends up in the groundwater.

Local governments spray pesticides to control mosquito populations. Electricity providers spray herbicides to prevent trees and bushes from growing near their main lines. No public water filtration system can remove all of the pesticides and herbicides from the water. But, in home water filtration systems like the AquaOx water filtration system can.

Every time that a customer overfills his tank and gasoline spills on the ground, it eventually ends up in the water. The storage tanks for gasoline are underground. You may have seen stations closed, while they dig up and replace their tanks. They did it because the tanks were leaking.

MTBEs are gasoline additives that have been found in public water supplies around the country. It can end up in good water, too if there is a nearby storage tank. It tastes bad, smells bad, and it may cause cancer. Only an excellent water filter can remove MTBE. There are only a few that do.

Your public treatment plants can do nothing about lead in your tap water. The toxic metal lines the pipes that carry the water from the facility to your home. If your home is older, it may even be in the pipes inside your home. You can have your water tested for lead, or you can only buy an in-home system that is certified to block the toxin. Once again, only a few do.

Government officials have stated that no matter how good the public water treatment is, it can not guarantee the absence of Cryptosporidium, a parasite responsible for the deaths of over a hundred people in Milwaukee. It was in the drinking water. Apparently, there is no “feasible” way to test for the microbe. Only a micron filtration system can block it.

Steam Can Cause Airborne Contamination

Chlorine vapors trigger asthma and allergy attacks. When you breathe in chlorine, the side effects could include unexplained headaches and dizziness. A solution for this is a shower filtration system, which will filter out chlorine, preventing the build up of chloroform gas your home.

No one knows for sure all the health problems that could be avoided by installing a quality in-home filtration system. With over 2000 different chemicals found floating around in our tap water and only, but a lowly couple being tested for, that pure, clear water coming from your tap may be clear.But it’s likely not all that pure and could very realistically be causing you and your family either immediate or long term health issues.

The filtration system used by your local utility company will probably protect you from cholera and dysentery, but it will not keep you safe from the dangers of lead, from cancer-causing chemicals and other health problems associated with chlorine. It’s up to you to defend your health and that of your family.

Most public water treatment plants sanitize the water by adding chlorine to it. Chlorine does a great job of neutralizing a lot of contaminants, but it doesn’t do a thing to lead or numerous chemicals readily found in our water. What is needed is a water filter that utilizes activated carbon and specialized micron filters to remove a multitude of contaminants, rendering the water safe for drinking and for any other use around a home.


You can protect your health and that of your family if you invest in a good whole house water filter. You should do some research first because advertising claims are not always 100% honest. But, we have found a water filtration system that has been tested to block chlorine, VOCs, TTHMs, lead, mercury and other harmful elements that could be in your water. We mentioned it above: the AquaOx water filter. You can connect with them on the AquaOx profile or see some educational water filtration facts on Pinterest.

Berkey Water Filter EXTREME Field Test & Review

Berkey Water Filter EXTREME Field Test & Review

Before you buy a Berkey water filter make sure you watch this video. I am not a Berkey distributor.

In this extreme Berkey water filter and purifier test we put the Berkey through some tough field tests. We put rain water, ditch water, freshly treated swimming pool water and five year old water that has been stored in a 55 gallon drum. If that isn’t enough we finalize the tests by running red food coloring through the Berky to see if it is still doing its job. We do it all in this one video so you can see if the Berkey lives up to its reputation as the gold standard for all water filtration and purification systems. After all these test the most important test is if Mrs. LDSPrepper likes the water. She is very picky about her water. I guess that is a good thing. Watch the video to see if she gives the Berkey her seal of approval.

Water Filter Science Project

Ever wonder what happens inside your Brita filter? Water filtration has been around since the early 1800’s but our methods have really improved with time. Watch the video to get a better understanding of how activated charcoal is used commercially!

What’s inside a Water Filter?

What’s inside a Water Filter?

We cut a water filter in HALF to see what it looks like inside! So interesting!
We are glad to work in collaboration with The Gates on this project! You can read this year’s letter here:

After reading their letter, come back and comment on what “Super power for good” you would choose. Or tweet at us using the hashtag #superpowerforgood @whatsinsideit

If I had a SUPER POWER FOR GOOD, it would be to give the world clean drinking water.

There are many ways you can help with key global issues, THE MOST IMPORTANT STEP is gaining awareness of the needs of others, and that doesn’t cost any money.

Water problems in this world will NEVER be solved by filters alone. Proper sewage and sanitation, access to a clean sustainable well or proper infrastructure of community or city supplied clean water are many things that can help solve this global issue. Ultimately, it all starts with education of needs, awareness, and a desire to be an advocate for those in need by those who are able. You can make a difference no matter what your current situation is.

This video is not in sponsorship with the filter used. We bought the filter ourselves on Amazon here:

Shocking Water Filter Review & Comparison: Berkey, Doulton, Reverse Osmosis, etc.

After over two decades and ,000 in cost buying, using and testing water filters I share my experiences and recommendations on water filters. I review the pros and cons of several water filter and purification systems including Berkey, Doulton, Reverse Osmosis, Monolithic, Just Water, Zen, and Ceramic Candle water filters. What you hear and my recommendations might just shock you.

DECEMBER 2012 UPDATE: This was a personal message sent to me, “”True story :Berkey sent my unit 2 years ago a full berkey setup for a roaving camp “near iran” snipers/SF mostly.
Used NOTHING but the berkey for 2 years. Put the most discusting water with slight radiation and horrid chemicles in it. Worked 100% every time.Sent samples to our water treatment guys….impressed the sh@@ out of them. LITERALLY we ran our berkey 24/7 .Never had one medical issue related to drinking the water. That crown is still in the field today. I am home now with a big berkey…loving it.” The moral of the story is, if you have to trust you life on your water filter working, trust a Berkey filter.
