THE BERKEY WATER FILTER CONTAMINANTS GUIDE

If you’re a prepper, you know all about the Berkey water filter. It’s the shiny metal canister that sits on your counter and filters water using gravity. It has been around for a while and has lots of fans, so it’s easy to find reviews and statistics on it.

But one thing that’s always left me speechless, is the GIANT list of contaminants that Berkey publishes on their packaging and their website. While it is impressive to see, you would have to be a Ph.D. in water purification to understand what all the contaminants are, and how they affect you.

Ever heard of Dibromochloromethane?

How about Hexachlorocyclopentadiene?

Yes, those are real. And they are just 2 of the 203 contaminants listed on the box. Holy smokes!

So as I stare at that list on the box, what I’m really wondering is:

  1. Where are these contaminants coming from, and
  2. What are the health effects that they are having on us?

THE WATER CONTAMINANTS GUIDE

My designer and I thought it would be a helpful resource to create an illustrated“contaminants guide”, to help people better understand the sources and effects of our water contaminants.

We put together this illustrated reference guide, that quickly shows some of the many sources of water contamination and the related health effects. The good news is–Berkey wipes them out!
