Waterborne Contamination

The recent water crisis in Flint, Michigan is a reminder how precious clean water is and how difficult it is to obtain. There have been many reports in recent years of people flushing pharmaceutical drugs down their toilets, thereby polluting local water tables. People who drink unfiltered water are ingesting water laced with drugs.

Berkey Water Filter System is setting the international standard for the world’s most powerful gravity water filters which, according to independent laboratories, have confirmed that the system provides clean drinking water. The Berkey Water Filter removes agricultural chemicals such as Roundup (glyphosate), bacteria, chlorine, chloramine, fluoride, heavy metals such as lead, parasites, pathogens, pharmaceuticals, sediment, and VOCs.

Berkey Water Filters are known as a gravity-fed system. Water is placed in the top chamber and gravity pushes water through the media filters that capture the above contaminants.
