Morning!! Some water talk for ya...
After years of buying copious amounts of bottled water and bearing the guilt of contributing to landfill and not to mention all the nasty hormone disrupting chemicals such as BPA that leached in to the water!
I spent ages researching water filtration systems and finally choose the Berkey!! I love it! It was so easy to set up and it just stands on your counter top and does its thang! But the best part is this.... it REMOVES: 99.999% of viruses, pathogenic bacteria, pharmaceutical drugs removed 99.5% (below lab detectable limits), pesticides, heavy metals such as aluminium(99%), cadmium(99.7%), lead(99.9%), mercury(99.9%), nickel(99.9%). It also removes or reduces: arsenic(99.9%), E. coli(99.999%), fluorene, petroleum products(gasoline, diesel, crude oil, kerosene - 99.9%).
The tap water here in London tastes awful... like chlorine, which ain't good. Maybe you can't taste it as you've gotten used to it however you can instantly taste the difference in the water when you run it through this bad boy! Tap water also contains metabolites of pharmaceuticals that can not be filtered. This includes the contraceptive pill therefore we are drinking the by products of synthetic hormones which begs the question 'what is this doing to our endocrine system?' Something to consider anyway. This Berkey costs just over £200 but think how much you'd spend on bottled water over the years....?! Also, the good thing about this one is that it's portable so you can take on camping trips etc! Water: a basic necessity...keep it clean 💦😊have a great Wednesday people ✌🏻
