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.

Azud Disc Filtration Animation – Corrosion Resistant Water Filtration

Azud Disc Filtration Animation – Corrosion Resistant Water Filtration

This video shows the basic operation of the Azud Disc Filtration building block. The solids enter the filtration chamber under the cover. The Azud Helix sets up the cyclone effect, keeping the solids trapped under the cover and away from the discs (to aid in extension of time between backflushes and saving of water). Eventually the solids will saturate under the cover and begin to be trapped by the discs.

At this point, the differential pressure will start to rise. At the predetermined setpoint (in this case 0.5bar) the PLC or Controller will trigger a backflush by commanding the 3 way valve to reverse direction.

This opens the Disc Filter to drain and reverses the flow through the discs – the spring keeping the discs in compression releases and allows the discs to spin free under the pressure from the internal water jets – the solids are thus sprayed off the discs and sent to the drain.

We have micron ratings 400,200,130,100,50,20,10 and 5. Azud Disc Filtration is corrosion resistant and perfect for use in aggressive water environments without the need for exotic materials like Super Duplex, Titanium, Monel etc.

Big Berkey Water Filtration Review. The Big Berkey is a water purification filtration system. It filters 2.25 gallons of water and removes 99.9% of contaminates.

Purchase the Big Berkey on Amazon *Affiliate link

From Berkey
“Product Description
INCLUDES: Big Berkey stainless steel housing (Upper, Lower & Lid), 2 Black Berkey Filters, 2 Fluoride Elements, 2 Hole Plugs, 1 knob, 1 easy flow spigot, and 1 set of easy to follow assembly instructions. When drinking water that’s been filtered using a Berkey purifier, you can rest assured that your water is clean and safe for consumption. In fact, Black Berkey purifier elements are far more powerful compared to competitors’ water filters. When tested Berkey water filter elements removed 100% of pathogens, allowing them to be classified as purifiers rather than simply filters. The included two (white) Berkey fluoride filters attach to the bottom of the Berkey Purifiers and hang in the lower chamber. Berkey fluoride filters reduce the amount of fluoride in your water UP TO 95%. Each Fluoride filter has a lifespan of 1,000 gallons and each purifier can filter up to 3,000 gallons. The Big Berkey is constructed from High Grade 304 Stainless Steel, and can accommodate up to four Berkey Purification elements and four Fluoride filters, however only two of each are included with this package.

From the Manufacturer
The versatile Big Berkey system is the ideal system for use at home with small or medium sized families, travel, outdoor activities or during unexpected emergencies. This powerful system purifies both treated water and untreated raw water from such sources as remote lakes, streams, stagnant ponds and water supplies in foreign countries, where regulations may be substandard at best. Perfect for everyday use, outdoor activities and a must in hostile environments where electricity, water pressure or treated water may not be available. The Big Berkey system removes pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites entirely and extracts harmful chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, VOCs, organic solvents, radon 222 and trihalomethanes. It also reduces nitrates, nitrites and unhealthy minerals such as lead and mercury. This system is so powerful it can remove food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Virtually no other system can duplicate this performance. Constructed of highly polished 304 stainless steel, the system comes complete with four purification elements and utilizes the latest technological advances. This system has a storage capacity of about 2.25 gallons (8.5 liters) and when in use it stands 19.25″ in height with a diameter of 8.5″. The upper chamber nests within the lower chamber for transport and stands only 13″ in height. Configured with four Black Berkey purification elements the system will purify up to 7 Gallons (13.3 liters) per hour.”
