This sounds crazy to me but was reading on a nutrition forum that distilled water is unhealthy because all the minerals are removed. Also said that purified water is acidic to the body? That it takes away minerals from the body? I drink reverse... (more)

You are just beginning to scratch the surface my friend :D There is much conflicting info on which water is best. I decided to go with remineralized reverse osmosis water in steel containers. Plastic containers contain xeno-estrogens, even the... (more)

Well for the shower issue, what I would suggest getting is a shower filter, as in a hot shower with the steam, the chlorine changes to a gas, and turns to chloroform, a highly toxic chemical, which can cause dizziness. As for the drinking water,... (more)

As empty beer cans are to rednecks, so plastic water bottles are to this self-proclaimed "classy lady." In an effort to combat both the sheer number of empty plastic bottles littering my car & home (unless I'm willing to make recycling-bin... (more)

I'll back Kilton up on this one. If you're not going to install a whole-house system, the Berkeys, using the Black Berkey filter and the optional PF-2 fluoride filter is the best possible filtration you can find -- and in my experience, it even... (more)

Do you filter your water? How do you do it? Reverse Osmosis, Carbon, etc. Between the chemical runoff and the government actually ADDING chemicals to the water it seems that a water filter is a necessity. What do you use if anything? (more)

Ideally I'm looking for a stainless steel water filter. It must be countertop because our plumbing is weird below the sink and 3 plumbers earlier couldn't put in my below the sink UV water filter. Thanks in advance!

You might want to consider, say, a Berkey filtration system. It isn't attached to the sink at all -- it works through gravity -- and it allows for superior filtration. However, there will still be mineral loss. There doesn't seem to be a way to... (more)

I appear to be chlorine-sensitive, and have thus been avoiding municipal/bathing water as much as possible. In brief, the fumes from hot water make me dizzy, cause headaches, and difficulty breathing. (This has been true throughout my life.) I... (more)

I personally could not find a filter that removed 100% of everything (fluoride, lead, etc) and that did not need to have filters changed all the time. I even bought 2 Culligan systems only to find one was defective from the start (I only found... (more)

There are many ways to filter water -- depends on what you want to get rid of. Brita filters are just activated charcoal, they're good at getting organic stuff out of the water but (AFAIK) don't do anything for metals and such. I think the most... (more)
