Mercola Needs To Stop Writing About Water Filtration

Unfortunately Dr. Joseph Mercola is spreading a great deal of bad information to his audience about water filtration. Whoever he is consulting with is giving him old and bad information. I suggest you ignore everything he says about water.

Also…the systems he sells are junk and do not perform as claimed. Mercola’s Pure and Clear Whole House Water Filter does not perform as claimed. If you want to see the best whole house water filter, then check out my Urban Defender.

Dr. Mercola, if you’d like to do a better job with water issues, I invite you to call me.  I give you credit and presume that you do not know the information you’re spreading is wrong. I’d be glad to speak with you.

    I accept your premise that the Pure and Clear Filters do not measure up, but would like to see a more data-driven response. Dr. Mercola seldom claims expertise on what he publishes; he relies on experts with proven track records and research. When new data and research shows a new way, Dr. Mercola has no problem updating his views. So, if you are to go toe-to-toe with him, you need to have your data ducks in order.

    You need to present clear information why P and C Filters are not up to snuff.

    I trust you are committed to providing good information and products to make our water better. Now, demonstrate it with more data.

    • I have previously commented on this topic elsewhere on this blog and have no intention of repeating that. You can search for the information about Aquasana filters. Mercola’s filters are the same. Basically the KDF outlasts the carbon since there is insufficient carbon and it is in an upflow configuration. Therefore if you test the filter for chlorine removal after you have it for some time it will show that it is removing chlorine, however it won’t be removing the carcinogenic byproducts of chlorination. There’s a longer explanation in the relevant blog post you can read here:

      Anyone reading this is also welcome to email me directly and request the pdf I provide on why ‘backwashing filters are better than upflow.’ And I have emailed this to you directly.

      But I was not only talking about the inferior nature of the filters sold by Dr. Mercola. Also, when he writes about water he has no idea what he is talking about and misleads the public when he writes or with his videos. My point is that he should stick with topics with which he is familiar.

    I purchased his whole house water filtration system for a well. It has performed horribly. Still have water stains and can not drink or cook with the water. Total waste of money

      these systems are not meant for wells. The way to purchase the correct water filter for well water is to first test the well. Testing will identify the contaminants. Knowing those you can then purchase the filter that will remove them.
