How safe are home water filters anyway? The perception is that these gravity fed water filters clean your tap water, but perception and reality are different. The main concern is heavy metal contaminants easily removed by reverse osmosis or steam distillation such as arsenic, lead, cesium and aluminum as examples. An independent test showed some alarming results.

Home water filters are found in more and more refrigerators with each passing year.
Common names of gravity fed home water filters include:
- Culligan water filters

While everyone seems to have them, are they doing their job as advertised, or is there more to the story?
