If you're considering getting a Berkey water filter, you want to know exactly what contaminants it will take out of the water.

You could go to the manufacturer's website and take a look at the independent lab test results they have published there. But it's several pages of about a zillion different chemicals and micro-organisms that you'd have to be a scientist to understand.


Luckily, the good folks at The Daily Prep have put together an easy to understand infographic that breaks down the different types of contaminants commonly found in our drinking water and how they got there in the first place. What's really great is that the Berkey filter removes up to 99.5% of all of them!
