In brief: Water filters

Most home water filters do not filter out all contaminants.
The indiviual manufacturers will list on their packaging what they filter. In addition, some soluble chemicals, salts, bacteria, and viruses could potentially not be filtered. There are many filtering and water treatment products out there but you need to check with each manufacturer.
