Berkley Water Filter or Berkey Water Filter?
People sometimes call us “Berkley” Water Filter, however, it is Berkey® Water Filter. There is no water filter called “Berkley” Water Filter and it’s a simple misspelling of Berkey.
So don’t worried about if you are getting the right product. When someone talks about our product on a blog, sometimes some blog systems automatically correct the spelling to "Berkley" despite their intention.
Berkey water filters are composed of a proprietary formulation of more than six different media types, all constructed into a very compact matrix containing millions of microscopic pores.
These pores are so small that they produce what we refer to as a “Tortuous Path” that pathogenic bacteria, cysts, parasites, herbicides, pesticides, organic solvents, VOC’s, detergents, cloudiness, silt, sediment and sedimentary minerals, foul tastes and odors must travel through.
These paths are so small that these pollutants physically cannot pass through them and become trapped, eliminating them from your drinking water.
Here is why you need water purifiers.
Water can be physically deceiving. It may look clear and germ-free wherein actually it can contain millions of bacteria. There are different kinds of bacteria and viruses that can be found in water. Particularly, the untreated ones.
Water that is left untreated is very dangerous to drink. Moreover, the ones that have not gone the process of purification and filtration will result in serious complications in the body. There are a number of illnesses that can result from drinking contaminated water. Examples are amoebiasis, intestinal infections, giardiasis and alike.
Protozoan Parasites. This kind of parasite reproduces through feeding off from animals. The animals serve as their primary source to live and survive. Classified under this contaminant are the Cryptosporidium and Giardia. Water that contains these microscopic organisms can cause you severe abdominal discomfort and diarrhea as well.
Escherichia Coli. This is profoundly known as the E.Coli Bacteria. As a matter of fact, E.Coli contributes greatly when it comes to a person's digestion process. It actually helps in breaking down the food into smaller particles. However, it becomes dangerous when it is carried into the upper digestive tract through drinking contaminated water. This can cause food poisoning and other intestinal infections.
Pesticides. This includes the inorganic chemical compounds that are maximized for agricultural matters.
Heavy Metals. Once water is contaminated through this, it can result in kidney problems and even cancer. Elements that belong under this contaminant are zinc, arsenic, mercury, and lead.
Feces. This is very self-explanatory as to how this can be harmful to a person's health once carried inside the body. Regardless of it is of a person's or animals' still it is very unsanitary.
- Petroleum. This can contaminate our waters through the oil spills and leakages the occur. Crude Oil is a typical example that is mostly found contaminating our drinking water.
These are only a few, but the most common that can be found endangering our water's reliability. Other contaminants that we need to be mindful of are pharmaceutical drugs and medicines, sewage leaks, and industrial wastes.
