The best water purifier you will ever find will be able to remove chemicals, viruses, heavy metals, toxins and pharmaceuticals from municipal water systems and wells.
If you are using water from a municipal water system, you are ingesting chlorine and probably fluoride. These two factors alone are detrimental to your health. There are many other substances that should be eliminated from the water that you drink. Even with bottled water you do not know what the water quality is. A home water purifier system is a necessity.
There are many filter systems in the marketplace today that can help you reduce the exposure to drinking water hazards. Not all filters are purifiers. In our search for the best water purifier, it became obvious that finding the filter that purified the water was the way to go.
The following are some of the factors that influenced our search for the best water purifier.
Reverse osmosis (RO) and distillation filters remove needed minerals and should not be considered. Most gravity purifiers do not remove valuable minerals and help to maintain an alkaline balance in the body.
The usability for emergency use with water from lakes and rivers was another requirement in our search for the best water purifier that was satisfied by the Berkey. And to top if off, the cost per gallon is less than 2 cents. Wow!
The Big Berkey model that we have sits on our kitchen counter close to the sink. I can fill it easily with the spray attachment on the faucet. I can tell you this...the peace of mind that comes with using this amazing Berkey filter/purifier is well worth the investment for good health!
