What a difference it makes

For a single person or just a couple the Berkey travel is perfect for more travel use. Recently after having my Berkey for several months I went to the dentist and was asked to rinse with they are playing tapwater. It was like drinking swimming pool water. I was shocked at the quality of water I had been drinking all the years.

For just one or two people to Berkey travel with it’s two black filters gives 3 to 6000 days of absolutely amazing drinking water. My pit bulls are now spoiled on what good drinking water really is. I feel safer knowing we all are drinking if you are chemicals.

I Love it

I only wish I had bought a bigger one, and will. When the 10 kids and 8 grandkids come over on the weekends they love it too. I have to store up extra just so I can be sure to get some good 99.9% clean water. Thanks Berkley!!!!!

Life saver

We survived the CampFire in Paradise but our home and the town's water supply did not.
It is so reassuring to know that the Berkey filtered water is safe.
The size fits well in our motorhome where we will be living until we rebuild.

Finally!!! Good water!!

We have lived in our home for over 30 years and have never had good water. We live on an island and have well water. Our well is very shallow so our water has lots of tannin in it and varies from yellow to brown. We have been refilling gallon containers with water from machines to use for coffee, drinking etc. We also have an RV and don't like using the water in RV/State parks. The Berkey has been awesome!! We take it with us when we travel and use it at home as well. Why didn't I hear about this sooner?? Thank you all so much!! Love it!

It's a winner and consider this...

I've had my travel filter in use for about 4 weeks. The water tastes better and I'm glad to have something that is simple to use now that it is together and easy to clean.
Here are the hassles I've experienced:
* I ordered the travel size and it holds 1.5 gallons. Totally okay for a one person household, including cooking. Had I realized that the fluoride filters would go in the lower cavity where the filtered water waits to be dispensed, I would have gotten a bigger size. It wasn't obvious to me that the lower chamber would hold less water. It has overflowed, which is avoidable once you know what's going on.
* Set up was simple, if not a bit of a hassle for this not so mechanical person. Priming the filters took two tries. I spent an hour and half before it was really good to go, and threw out several gallons of water.
* 3.5 weeks later, it was leaking. I called to ask for help and was directed to fill out a warranty claim. Apparently the spigot wasn't tight enough. Easy enough fix. But the friendly customer service process was very confusing. I'm still not sure what company did which action to help me. It was very unclear.
* In order to promote even wear of the filters the upper tank is supposed to be filled fully each time. This can be tricky b/c if there's filtered water in the lower chamber, it can overflow. How to have enough water ready to go for use and fill the upper tank enough to get even use of the filters? I think the lower chamber should actually be a bit bigger to accommodate this.
* It's a good enough looking set up, and it does take space, obviously.
In my mind pros of less waster than buying water or reverse osmosis win, and I'm happy to have my Berkey. Maybe I should have gotten the next bigger size, but all in all I'm impressed with what the system does!
