We had a water analysis done on our well water and the main concern I have from the results is: Silica was 95.0 PPM The report stated: "The silica is extremely high in this water. A refiner will not remove silica." My question is: Is it bad to have silica in our drinking water from a health perspective? I have found sites that are touting and selling silica water: http://www.mineralwaterstore.com/silica.asp http://www.eternalwater.com.au/silica.htm If we need to remove it from our drinking water, what water treatment system would we need to use? I think highly of the British Berkefeld ceramic filters, but don't know if they will filter silica: http://www.jamesfilter.com I can't seem to find any other sites that address silica and water. If you are unable to answer my questions, would you be able to direct me to an online research site(s)? Thank you for your time and attention to my questions. Good Day, Paula Jo Dorrity
