Why Drinking Filtered Water Is Better

Tap vs. Filtered Water

In most places in North America, tap water is safe to drink. Faucet water comes from a local municipal water source and is processed for safety and purity.

While in some places there are possibilities of water contaminants (mainly in rural, highly underserved areas), in general, the tap water supply is safe.

That said, most tap water across this continent isn’t very flavourful or optimized for nutrient density and distribution.

Municipal systems do not remove all the harmful pathogens you need to truly be safe in drinking the thing that human beings need the most to survive: clean water.

At Conscious Water, we carry the Berkey water filter, which delivers clean, purified water for optimum health.

This device filters out chlorine, fluoride, bacteria, viruses, and heavy metals, is free from pesticide and herbicide toxic runoff, and doesn’t need electricity or water pressure.

Our water system provides superior taste and hydration. No matter what the circumstance, our product delivers.

The Taste of Filtered Water in General

A researcher at McGill University in Montreal, QC, found that people in general simply like the taste of filtered water better than tap or even drinking water packaged in bottles.

The consensus seems pretty clear: while tap water is safe to drink, it often doesn’t taste very good to many people. This is where our Berkey water filters come in. 

Features and Benefits of our Filtered Water

The US Environmental Protection Agency states, “Water filtration pitchers are an affordable and commonly used free-standing home water treatment device.”

While the US Environmental Protection Agency doesn’t specifically advocate for filtered water, it does articulate its benefits.

Our Berkey filter system trumps other filtration devices because it preserves all the essential minerals of the water versus the minimization of these minerals by reverse osmosis (RO) filters.

It also removes viruses, harmful pathogenic bacteria, parasites, and unhealthy water contaminants and impurities at >99.99%.

And while there are some benefits to keeping specific minerals like fluoride and calcium in the water, Berkey filters remove fluoride for various reasons.

Our water filter system has a very straightforward, simple, and quick assembly. You won’t need any tools, electricity, water pressure, or plumbing. Moreover, our water filtration systems will last five to seven years, are self-sterilizing, and are highly efficient.

Indeed, one of the primary benefits of Berkey water filters is their longevity: they last for around 22,700 Liters (6,000 gal).

Compare this with other models that need to be replaced every few months or so, and you know you have a superior product.

Berkey water filters are also highly economical. You can clean the filters repeatedly without replacing them, and they can last up to seven years. You can find more information about cleaning and maintaining your Berkey filters here.

Lastly, Berkey filters have a proven track record of success with some of the largest humanitarian organizations in the world, including the Peace Corps, UNICEF, and international Red Cross Societies.

They’re also accredited by highly reputable university departments, such as the Department of Toxicology and Environmental Science at Louisiana University; the University of Arizona Department of Soil, Water and Environmental Science; and Analytical Services, Inc. (ASI) Microbiological Testing, Research and Consulting.

The Distinctive Taste of Our Filtered Water

Given that Berkey water filters set the international standard for filters in clean or hostile filtration environments, the water is bound to taste up to that standard too!

Folks who have tried the Royal Berkey Filter option, for instance, have mentioned on our website that they love the water’s taste.

One online review of our purified water says that a comparison between Berkey filtered water, bottled water, and tap water yields unmatched results: no metallic aftertaste, just superiorly clean water.
