      It's so true that having fresh water can affect how you look. When I've drunk the tap water at certain places, I'm sure it's had a bad effect on my skin.

      "Contaminants in water can also cause you to feel tired even when you are getting enough rest." I hadn't thought of that, but it makes sense. There's a lot of stuff that humans just shouldn't be drinking, you know?

      Those Berkey filters look like the best. It'd be so nice to be able to make sure my water was ok, even if I'm out camping or traveling around. Most home systems don't let you travel, but I think I saw a portable one on their site which you can use at home or away. That would make so much more sense.

      Thanks for sharing. I'm glad you've had such good results with your water filters. They're a real must have nowadays.
