Most of the municipal water utilities use chlorine in treating their drinking water since it is very effective in killing bacteria. It is also easy to use and inexpensive.
But even though chlorine is a very good water disinfectant, it can make the drinking water taste and smell very unpleasant, and it can also react with some organic substances that are also in the water to form a hazardous compound.
Water filters can help purify your drinking water, removing these impurities can make the water very safe to drink while also improving how it smells or tastes.

Our Crown Berkey, which the kids refer to as the "Tower of Purity Security", delivers daily hydration for our family of five, our pets, our indoor garden of vegetable seedlings and culinary herbs, AND supplies us with plenty of clean water for cooking. It's a beautiful water vessel in our tiny kitchen that reminds us with each drop how fortunate we are that our water is clean. We enjoy tremendous peace of mind knowing our Berkey filters can provide water that is 75% glyphosate free and up to 99.9% free from toxins, carcinogens, viruses, bacteria, pharmaceuticals, pesticides, herbicides and other threats that may be invisibly present in water. This sophisticated water filtration system has become a kitchen essential in our home, and a worthy investment in our family's health as we strive to reduce the toxic load.. Proud to own a Berkey !!
This 6 gallon filter system has been a blessing and a relief from all the plastic container jugs we were constantly buying and handling including disposal. The reviews that say the sight glass option (helps see the level of filling) leaks were probably just overfilling the water level and leakage was from the overflow hole on the top of the tube, thus causing water to run down the outside of the tube and appearing to come from the threads of the spigot. I know because I did just that and figured it out by simple observation. I chose the stand to set the Berky above the countertop and dispense over the sink to facilitate filling taller containers. The 6 gallon model is worth the extra dollars because we don't have to fill it as often. In less than one year the Berky will have paid for itself compared to bottled water that was no more than a chlorine reduced version of processed city water.
We gave these as gifts to our kids and they love them. Great product!
