You’ve probably read countless articles about the horrendous quality of tap water and its numerous contaminants that attack your biology and have been tied to a multitude of health ailments. It is very rare, however, that you can actually see just how terribly polluted your tap water truly is. In the video above, I show you the ‘overflow’ tray of my 12 stage water filtration device that collects the excess amount of gunk that the filters discharge. In other words, this is actually the extra amount of build up amounted from 12 different stages of water filtration and it’s still disturbingly-putrid.

It’s easy to imagine what the rest of the heavy metals, parasites, chemicals, fecal matter, drug residue, dirt, dust, and urine contamination would look like that are cleared by the filters. I may do some future videos showing the insides of the filters as well just to give you an idea. Upon pulling out the reverse osmosis filter, it’s pretty easy to screw open the top and see a whole lot of brown residue quite similar to that of the video.

I imagine one response many reading this might have is ‘well why doesn’t my water filter look like this?’ The first question you should ask yourself is whether or not you have a really serious high quality filtration device. If you’re using something cheap like a Brita filter that you picked up from your local supermarket, you’re not going to see anything near this amount of captured toxins. Why? Because cheap Brita filters don’t grab very much from the tap water you’re drinking, and allows virtually 100% of the fluoride and other heavy metals to pass right on through.

As I explain in my previous article highlighting the top 4 ways to radically transform your health, it’s vitally important to acquire either your own high quality water filtration device or pure spring water. I recommend purchasing a reverse osmosis filtration device and ensuring that you replace vital minerals removed from this process through the addition of apple cider vinegar, real Himalayan sea salt, or a mineral filter (my personal method) addition. Alternatively, checkout the website Find A Spring to see if a pure spring is nearby.

    Who drinks tap water gross

    I have had a shower filter for about a year now and it has been great! It would be nice if there was a car product to plug into cigarette lighter for summer or winter travel.

  • Maya Doherty

    In which city are you???

  • 2hazelgreen

    "Al Smith", your remarks are but one example of the WORST kind of poison-

    That is anti-semitism. I'm shocked that your putrid comments would be accepted here, but as long as they ARE, I feel compelled to respond—and Your thinking is more toxic than any water—-but DO keep drinking,dear!

    • suss G

      2hazelgreen, your a shill and/or ignorant. sorry to say but al smith is correct! and anti-seminism is the biggest PC ploy used by the exact people that are doing this to us. O but you know this i forgot, and yes the people on this forum won't fall for it since most of us are in the know and know this as a tactic to shut/chill our speech as "hate" and it simply is not it is stating the ugly truth, can't keep truth down: its a universal law- sorry HAZE- go get get lost- your not welcome here, you liar disinfo MF'er :)!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • John

        I second that.

  • Italics Mine

    How can any system filter out all the crap that enters the public water system? God only knows what the pipes look like that transport the water.

  • Al Smith

    No known filtration process can remove much fluoride from fluoridated water. But, water filters can remove minerals and heavy metals.

    The fluorine molecule has only one atom more than water. Hence, it evaporates at essentially the same temperature as water. So, even distillation can remove only about 20% of fluoride. Only long term geological processes can get fluoride out of water.

    Over the past half century, fluoride from agricultural pesticide run-off and from our municipal waste water discharges has perpetually poisoned our rivers which perpetually poisoned our oceans and killed America's lovely coral reefs that took hundreds of thousands of years to form. Cuba has pristeen reefs, because they can't afford to poison their people or land.

    To "fluoridate" Our drinking water, our lovely owners (non-Jewish Khazarian Zionists) use fluorosilicic acid, a multi-poisonous waste cocktail from the smoke stacks of fertilizer plants, containing 23% sodium fluoride (RAT POISON), lead, mercury, arsenic, barium, cadmium, palonium 20 and other trace poisons. The latter three are known radioactive carcinogens.

    It amuses them that they force us to perpetually pay them extortionist's rates to perpetually poison us, because they think of Us as rats and plan to kill 90% of Us and then openly enslave our survivors. This is but one of the multitude of covert weapons they employ to dumb down, sicken, disenfranchise, unemploy, confuse, divide, conquer and kill Us off in their eternal secret War Aganist Humanity. They're Our only real threat and our only true enemy. And, for each of them there are many thousands of us.

      Define and identify 'they'… I am so sick of ppl trying to act like they know the roots and origins of toxicity in their city. Location isn't hard "over there by the pulp mill" but who and why is always some shallow generalised assertation. "They, they are rich and careless, they are constructing a secret society, you're not invited" OK well you can point fingers westward all day but until you dig up a history which details the scandal you're basically a dreamer and a cynical one at that…

      • Abbass

        He defined "they" as closely as anyone can without naming names. However you will find the same fact by reverse investigation if youn trace the names of the responsible parties to so many things gone wrong, from psychology, to education, from media to finance and banking. By non-Jewish we mean not original Hebrew people of the book type Khazarian Zionists.

        • mothman777

          I do wish people would stop labelling Khazarian (Ashkenazim) Jews as non-Jews. I mean, what on Earth is the point? Dr Karl Skorecki proves perfectly well and irrefutably that Ashkenazim and Sephardim are indeed real Jews, with unique and common genetic markers going back some 3,300 years, to the time of the Egyptian Exodus. I quote from the below link:

          "If Kohanim are descendants of one man, they should have a common set of genetic markers–that of their common ancestor Aharon HaKohen — at a higher frequency than the general Jewish population.

          "Skorecki’s tests found that a particular array of six chromosomal markers were found in 97 of the 106 Kohens tested. This collection of markers has come to be known as the Cohen Modal Haplotype (CMH). The chances of these findings happening at random is greater than one in 10,000.

          "The finding of a common set of genetic markers in both Ashkenazi and Sefardi Kohanim worldwide indicates an origin pre-dating the separate development of the two communities around 1000 C.E. Date calculation based on the variation of the mutations among Kohanim today yields a time frame of 106 generations from the ancestral founder of the line, some 3,300 years, the approximate time of the Exodus from Egypt, the lifetime of Aharon HaKohen.

          "Skorecki’s research has provided scientific proof of a clear genetic relationship amongst Kohanim and their direct lineage from a common ancestor."

        Tank: do your research we all have and know who "they are"; its not too difficult to figure it out! If you don't know you need to do some digging- Its the powers that be that control virtually the entire globe- O ya you will say "conspiracy nonscence" and your free to say such things: its best if you just go along and get along and believe in peter pan while your at it :) ha ha ha ha ha ha ps. you'll have lots of company btw ;)

      Thanks to the hard work of Foster and Kimberly Proctor and the movie they produced called "Thrive" and others like them….The ones who have been killing us are the "Illuminati" who's members were all named in the Thrive movie. You should take out the comment in ( ) and call them by there real names. God is already taking care of removing the members of the Illuminati from Mother Earth, so we can start to restore her and everyone who is living on Earth. We need to spread the word that we have a whole galaxey of Star family's out their just waiting to come and help us clean-up our water and land and illnesses etc. Anthony would you consider helping to spread the word, if I can offer you proof that this is true, and in the best interest of everyone to do so ASAP?

  • Stuart Smith

    The water that is supplied to us through taps is extremely dangerous and unhealthy. There a lot of impurities in it. So that's why filtration of tap water is the need of every house. You have written a very good article on this important and very common issue.

  • altan

    I think it's mostly algea. If you ran distilled water through something for a couple of months you would still see that stuff..

    • mothman777

      I don't think you would see anything at all if you ran distilled water through a filter for a couple of months.

      The tap water where I live is 550-750 ppm, and after I distill it, it becomes much less than 1 ppm as measured with a TDS meter. I can see all the crud in the bottom of the distiller every time I use it, and it forms a hard whitish crust at the bottom which I clean out regularly.

      The distilled steam which comes out and condenses, dripping into a glass flagon, is crystal clear, and the container never has to be rinsed or cleaned as there is zero sedimentation or algae growth in it, as it is pretty much sterile I suppose.

      • Anthony

        Hey, Mothman777. Nice to see you commenting on our articles with great info, would it be possible to snap a few photos of this and send it over to We're compiling photos similar to those in the video from users to create an archive of sorts.



        • mothman777

          My apologies to you for the delay in replying. I have been involved in moving home, so I will get some photos back to you shortly.

  • Juanita

    I have a 3 stage RO system but I was under the impression that ROs did not remove flouride. Please advise

    Also can you recommend a good filtration system or a few in different price ranges?

    Thank you

    • Anthony

      Reverse osmosis filters do indeed remove fluoride, this is in addition to distillation and something known as an activated alumina defluoridation filter.

      For an overview here's an chemistry article on which filters remove fluoride:

      I recommend checking out Berkey if price is a concern, they have some great filtration devices for around $200 that remove fluoride and other contaminants.

      If you have the cash, purchase a whole house filtration device instead. They vary in price, but for the absolute best (it is expensive), I recommend the same one as our friend Dr. Edward Group (



      • Juanita

        A whole home filtration system is what I had in mind that I would like to get at some point and need to know where to start. Are they others that you can recommend?

        • Anthony

          Yes, take a look at the Berkey as I mentioned. They are relatively cheap and get the job done quite well:

          Just make sure to add the fluoride filter on the purchase page for an extra $20-$30 to deal with that issue.

          Now if you KNOW your water doesn't have fluoride and perhaps you're drinking well water and just want to make sure it's as clean as it can be, here's the absolute cheapest filter I can recommend (it's $40):

          Congratulations on taking the initiative to change your health!

          • Juanita

            Thank you so much for all the info Anthony. Something I thought of while I was in the shower this morning; I have a Sprite shower filter to filter out chlorine (my skins cracks and itches if I don't use it) do you know if this type of filter filters out fluoride? I'm assuming it doesn't since they don't make that claim.

        • Water Boy Adam S.
      • Stay

        I'd luv to purchase the absolute best but is there any other brands that you can recommend that are a bit affordable for now that are whole house filtration devices? Thx

        Note: I'm going to purchase a $250 Berkley system for the time being. Also any recommendations on where to look for a shower head kit that takes out fluoride if possible? Thx again.

      It's a real problem here in Christchurch New Zealand. I tested many water filters and finally decided on a Zepter Edelwesser. It's wonderful, clears, heavy metals, parasites, chemicals, pesticides, bacteria and virus's.
      I know for a fact that they clear all above as I also test for these toxins in my clinic daily. The authorities say, 'all the water is fine'. Yet I have clients that are ill due to so many toxins. After a W/F has been installed a month, I check them out again, and there are maybe 1 or 2 heavy metals there, but they are so low, and the client is by then feeling very different. The Zepter Water Filter is a Swiss make, from a very reputable firm.

  • Aschwin Wesselius

    Hi, I was wondering how you know the contents of the residue? Are there any methods I can do to test it, or do you sent it to a lab for refracted spectrum analysis?

    Thanks, nice video.

    • Anthony

      My passion for health has led me to do a large amount of testing on the water supply in my area, but you can actually access the records for your local area online through the water department. This will tell you if your water is fluoridated, etc.

      Then there is the issue of location. If you live near or in a major city, the fact is you're going to have drug contamination in your water as well as a load of illegal drug residues and other substances.

      Outside of that, there are strips you can buy to test your water for heavy metals. Here's one pack that is efficient:


  • Marc

    Makes me glad I have a whole house filter.

  • Katie


    Thanks for the vid… I can confirm my water filters get really gross like this too.

  • Catherine

    What about well water as opposed to public water? Should we be just as concerned?

    • Katie

      If you make sure the well water is clean and look at the comments on findaspring it is ultimately better than tap. A lot have tests done monthly or weekly.

  • lisa

    how often do you clean that filtration tray? i have just got a 5 stage RO system.

    • Anthony

      I change it bi-weekly or once per month, for the video I let it sit for just a few days over one month.

      • Anonymous

        What about water softeners, do those clean any of that gunk?

        • Anthony

          Water softeners remove some minerals like calcium and magnesium, but not many harmful contaminants. And they're also really expensive.

          They certainly aren't a replacement for a water filtration device, so I would recommend checking out my recommendation on a proper device as I outlined higher on the comment page.

          Thanks for your interest and all the best.
