Water Filter
0

5 posts in this topic

I have a water filter now but i suspected that it was giving me issues so i stopped using it and i got better, i contacted the company and after a bunch of stupid answers they stopped answering me altogether, talk about customer service.

I wanted to buy the panasonic water purifier because it's small and the rest of my family uses the RO one we have, so does anyone know if the panansonic water purifier is ok for supersensitives? and what other kinds of water purifiers(filters) are gluten free?

thanks in advance

We have a PUR filter. No problems.

I am just curious, but what makes you think there is gluten in a water filter? I have never heard of this before.

(But when it comes to gluten, I am never surprised by what I learn.)

I also use PUR and I've never suspected gluten in the filters. Mine is a carbon filter (just read the box). Are you changing your filter enough?. Maybe bacteria build up? I don't know the answer but I don't think the water filtration system is the culprit. IMO. Be well

We had this discussion before, and I think some of the filter are made with coconut shell or fiber? If you had a problem with coconut, maybe that could be it? I think some of the carbon (charcoal) is burnt coconut. I'll see if I can find that discussion.

here's something hat shows they use cocnut to make carbon in some filters

Based on an acquaintance of mine, whose little one reacted to coconut and was getting sick from their charcoal filters, it seems that most water filters use coconut as their main source for the charcoal. It's one of the better ones for filtering the water, I understand.

I don't know what else is involved in the processing of it, though. Sorry.
