Today, I want to talk about Berkey Water Filters®. When our family moved into our last home, the water was horrible. The well was not very deep and we were in a sort of half bowl type hollow with farm fields all above us. They sprayed these fields heavily. We did not want to buy water. We studied several different water systems and chose a RO or reverse osmosis. This did very well for us, but the one set of filters had to be changed every 6 months and the other set every year. It was expensive to replace these. It also took up your kitchen faucet. We would run it all night and get 3 gallons of water. If you use that water for drinking and cooking, 3 gallons does not go far. We were having to run it almost every night. Then we moved to this house and the water was a little better, but we still wanted it filtered. We used the RO system we had until a couple of years ago. The last time I called to order filters, they no longer made them, but one guy had a few left he would sell and the price was higher. We decided to look around. After hearing someones testimony about the Berkey® (they had high farm chemicals in their water and tested before and after the Berkey® and were amazed) we decided to give it a try. We bought the Berkey Light® which you see below. There is an actual light available for the base, but we had no reason for the extra light and bought it without. Many people use it as a night light in their kitchen.
It is very handy because it uses no electricity you can take it with you anywhere and it comes in many different sizes and styles. In this picture below you see the sport water bottle that comes with the Berkey® filter. You can take it with you anywhere. Weighing only 5.5 ounces you can bring your own hand held water purifier with you when you travel. The Sport Berkey® is the ideal personal protection traveling companion. The bottle's filter removes and/or dramatically reduces a vast array of health-threatening contaminants from questionable sources of water, such as lakes and streams, stagnant ponds and domestic water supplies.
Berkey Filters® are the ultimate in water purification and the ideal personal protection and traveling companions. Used worldwide for normal, hostile and emergency environments to provide the purest, sparkling clean water possible.
I can honestly say that my family is sold on our Berkey®. We have a constant source of pure clean water to drink and cook with. It is very easy to use and clean. We have contracted with someone to set up our online shopping cart, but until then, there is not a lot of details on our store page. If you would like more information on sizes and pricing of any of the items, please let us know.
