Are these water filtration systems good? And why is this one "Not for sale in California"? -
I suspect that it is because California has the highest standards for water. So far I can only find reference in bottled water stories, but it appear CA has a health code saying you can't sell water with carcinogens, and that may include utility water.
How pure do you want your water? Some people think drinking water that is too pure is bad for you because it removes stuff you might want to stay in you via osmotic pressure gradients. Do you have a whole house filter? You would definitely want to start there because if you don't your fancier filters will quickly foul. -
I don't know about their products, but this website has a good summary of factors to consider that I mostly agree with from setting up the water system at SpheroSense.
perhaps it's not certified by CA. "When a manufacturer claims that a drinking water treatment device will reduce toxic chemicals or makes other health related performance claims, the device must be certified by the California Department of Public Health"
Interesting...: "There are no "whole house" or point-of-entry systems currently certified for health claims." -
How do whole-house systems work? It seems wasteful to filter the whole domestic water supply when you only need drinking water filtered. -
Some chemicals go through the skin. Kurzweil recommends a whole house filter for this reason. But yeah, you should only need it for showers and drinking/cooking water. -
Lung surface area way exceeds skin surface area, and is way more porous. I recall a General Motors Institute study showing, when winds parallel the roadway, pollution density downwind of heavy traffic exceeds ambient levels (as measured by stations) by 1 000 000-fold. Why not install HEPA filters in your car? -
