BERKEY WATER FILTER REVIEW

A few weeks ago, we were pretty excited to get our new Big Berkey Water Filter. Over the years, we’ve experimented with various water filter systems to purify our lake water.

To make sure we’re doing what we can to give them clean water and to remove heavy metals, pathogenic bacteria, and any other yucky stuff that could harm them.

WHY WE USE A WATER FILTER

New Millennium Concepts, an American-based company established in 1998, makes Berkey water filter systems.

WHAT IS A BERKEY WATER FILTER?

HOW BERKEY PRODUCES CLEAN WATER

Gravity-fed water filter systems have been around for (literally) ages.  With a gravity-fed water filter, gravity draws water down through filtering material. 

WHAT TO WATCH FOR

> SIZE MATTERS Your family size, your counter space, and also how much water your family consumes daily. > THE COST OF BERKEY Berkeys cost more than many of the other filters out there. And the replacement black Berkeys filters cost more than some entire filter systems.

The good news? No smell or taste of fish in the water from the Berkey water filter system. However, there was a distinct rubbery scent for the first couple of days, which has since faded.
