What is the difference between tap water and filtered water?

  • The main problem with tap water is the chlorine, lead, cysts, pesticides, cryptosporidium, giardia and other contaminants that travel into it. Filtered water removes the impurities from you tap water giving you pure clean fresh drinking water.

What is the difference between bottled water and filtered water?
