Clean water has been a growing concern of the majority of people I know. We recently we splurged on a Crown Berkey because we felt as though now is the time to have those essential prepping items you are going to need for the days ahead. We wanted to buy one for the longest time, and felt as though if there was one prepping item we really needed to spend the money on, it was a quality water filter. The Crown Berkey is capable of taking radiation out of water, and that was the main selling point for us to take the plunge to buy one.
A study was released in April of 2017 where 35 water ways around the country were tested for 719 chemical compounds. What they found was of those 719 compounds, a little more than half or 406 compounds were detected. The top ten chemicals included eight pesticides, and two pharmaceuticals—caffeine, and metformin, a drug used to treat type-2 diabetes. The 719 compounds represent a fraction of the 85,000 manufactured chemicals currently in production!
What does that tell you?
The water may be crystal clear, but it doesn’t mean it is clean.
I stumbled upon a website that you will find interesting. You can search your local water providers records to see what has been found in your local water.
You simply put in your zip code, and it will list all the water treatment companies in your county. It tells you if they have been in violation, and what has been found in your water.
I looked up our area and found that my blind trust in our so called “clean water” was not so clean.
Look up your area, and see if it is time for you to buy a water filter for you and your family.
