BWT™ Water Pitcher Filter Review

According to BWT's website (Best Water Technology); "BWT magnesium technology enriches tap water with the precious, vital mineral, magnesium, which is a smart way of boosting your daily magnesium intake. Magnesium Mineralized Water is not only pure pleasure when enjoyed on its own, but also brings out the full flavour and aroma of tea and coffee. Magnesium Mineralized Water also contains lower levels of calcium, thus guaranteeing reliable protection for appliances from limescale deposits. Taste-​impairing substances such as chlorine and other extraneous particles are also filtered out of the drinking water." Of course, we cannot find any testing data to support these claims. In addition to a water filter pitcher, BWT also sells swimming pool filters, & fuel cells.
