Water Filters - More than you Bargained For


Activated carbon filters often contain charred animal bone as either a component of or a their main filtration medium. Water filtered through charred animal bone is not kosher. Many chars are dervied from vegetable sources, such as coconut shells. It is best to contact the manufacturer of a given filter product to determine what char they use in their filter. Again, only vegetable sources should be considered kosher.
