My boyfriend and I absolutely love this filtration system! I was referred by a few friends and now I’m hooked and have passed this on to more people. The only complaint I have is the instructions could have been worded and displayed better but otherwise I think the system itself is the best!
Thank you for the prompt delivery of your product. It's nice to have clean, purified water at demand.
It feels good to have that secure feeling when you grab a glass of water!
Absolutely NO trace of chlorine smell or taste! I not only drink 70-80 ounces a day, I cook and make ice with it, as well. The see-through gage is a plus and I highly recommend purchasing that; it alleviates guess work. I also purchased the wire stand; glasses and pans can be easily filled. Otherwise, you would need to the spigot to be over an edge. I'm very pleased.
Love our Berkey!! The water is refreshing and tastes sweet.
Works very well getting the weird well smell out of our water. Tastes delicious, but I forgot it eouls always be at room temp, instead of cool from underground! Lesson. I had to tighten the rim, but was expecting that. Now perfectly sealed!
