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, 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.

6-gallon Berkey is a wonderful addition to our kitchen

We have been using the 6-gallon Berkey for about a month now and area very happy with it. It was easy to set up, and even easier to maintain. We have a family of six, and we homeschool, so we drink a lot of water every day, and the 6-gallon provides the perfect capacity of fresh-tasting water.

Crown Berkey 6 Gallon

We received this product very fast. Our tap water was so nasty, you had to sneak up on it to drink it. It nauseated me to drink it. It also had too much lead and copper in it. Now we have water that taste like water and has no odor. We are using it with 2 black and 2 fluoride filters. We are very happy with our purchase. We drink out of it, water our animals, cook with it, make ice, and make coffee. We are refilling on average every 3 days. The six gallon is perfect for us. Love this filter, and threw out the brita pitchers we were using that couldn't remove the taste or odor properly. I would personally recommend this to anyone who uses a lot of water, like we do. This filter takes care of 3 people, a dog, 2 cats and 11 birds, several of which are very large. Even they noticed the difference in smell and taste. Our dog would avoid her water dish in the past, now she is drinking the water she needs. This has been such a God send to us. Thanks Berkey.

Cat IV Hurricane Irma surviver of a direct hit

beyond pleased, water tastes better, a hell of a lot clearer as I am on a well, but it even tastes better than the bottled water I was buying at Publix for 6.00 per 5 gallon container to use out of a water dispenser. After Hurricane Irma blew through, in which we took a direct hit, seen the eye clear sky's for ten minutes outside waiting for the back wall to hit; then power went out, 39 days later we got power back on; 39 days of running back and forth to the store HOPING they had water and it was a hit and miss. 17 days of no gas to go get water. It was scarier than the Cat IV hurricane. Never again!! I have 50 gallons of purified water that I rotate through at anyone time. The water is so clear my girlfriend uses it to wash her hair. During that span of 1 disaster I cant tell you how fast I blew through hard earned cash running back and forth spending hard earned money looking for water. 2 filters that came with our 6 gallon Berkey and it easily takes care of 4 adults, 2 dogs, 9 cats AND a 50 gallon fish tank for bi-monthly water changes and her bi-weekly hair washing. Oh, and it looks sharp and people ask questions and then I show them the filter box that shows what it eliminates from the water.
