My Review of a Whole House Water Filtration System

review whole house water system

Clean drinking water is a murky subject. I’ll confess that every time I begin to write a post about water filtration and removing toxins from your family’s water sources, I am tempted to start hyperventilating. There’s so much out there. If you begin to search for answers to questions like “what are the primary contaminants in tap water?”, “what are the health concerns associated with chlorine exposure?”, “which pharmaceuticals have been found in tap water?” and “what kind of filters are most effective for removing […]

The Stainless Steel Line of Berkeys

Drinking pure water is a pretty hot topic these days. Once the public began to be aware of the toxins in regular tap water, the bottled water industry absolutely boomed in the 1990′s and early 2000′s. Greener and more sustainable living has slowly moved to the forefront, with the introduction of stainless steel and BPA-free water bottles, to replace plastic bottled water, and in-home water filtration systems gained popularity over having jugs of purified water delivered to your home.
