filters for nc

I'm having a hard time believing that a ceramic water filter can filter
anything but dirt from water. The problem with contaminated water is
bacteria and toxins so I don't understand what the point of the filter is.
Also how are you going to handle the legal question if someone uses your
filter and gets sick from the water?
