i'm so thrilled to finally own a berkey!

I love my travel berkey! it was a little challenging to set up, but i found a video on youtube that was great. I suggest the berkey company post a set up instruction video on their website! the water is so delicious, I am thrilled with my berkey!



Love my Travel Berkey!

Had been researching filters/purifiers and wanting to purchase one. Although the water in my area is good, I still wanted the added layer of protection and the flexibility of traveling with it, if needed. I have limited space and was originally concerned with where it could live on a daily basis but it fits perfectly on the counter, at the corner of my sink.

I had challenges priming the filters initially because of my new faucet so I improvised and used a water bottle that fit the washer. By squeezing the bottle, I was able to force the water through and prime the filters. It was much easier and less messy than trying to make the faucet fit.

Overall very happy

At the end of the day, the filter does exactly what I bought it for and I'm very happy. The priming process is a little cumbersome since the adapter does not fit my faucet and there is also a suction issue causing the water to pour out at a very low pace. So I have to lift the upper chamber to have propper water flow. But it's great. I have just one other person living with me so it's a good size.

I didn't know water could taste so good.

The size is just right for a single person or a traveler. I'm amazed at how good clean water tastes. I've been exposed to The Berkey before (most of my family has one and several of my friends and yet I've never really sat and thought about how water tastes. Now I know and will never go back to 'regular' water. I actually enjoy just sipping water from 'My Berkey' and enjoying the clear, clean taste. Don't wait, just order it and get ready for a new experience and enjoying drinking good clean water. You owe it to yourself and your friends/family to experience this. It is amazing.
