Berkey Water Filter: A Review and a Giveaway!

Post image for Berkey Water Filter: A Review and a Giveaway!

Ever since we moved into the "little house" I've been concerned with our water. Sure it passes "the test" but it doesn't always look quite right and sometimes even smells and tastes funny. Unfortunately we aren't on pure well water yet but community water in our current location. Even after we move though I want to have a reliable source of filtered water.

I heard about Berkey a few years ago when my co-op started selling them. It sounded like the perfect solution to my problem! Here's what I learned about them.

Berkey's are an "off the grid" water filteration system. That means they run without any kind of electricity or plumbing. Each Berkey filter system (besides the water bottles) are equipped with 2 Black Berkey Purification filters. Each set of these filters is rated to purify 6,000 gallons of water! The Berkey filter systems are created with 2 chambers, the water goes in the top and filters down to the bottom where the spigot is located.

Berkey filters range from holding 1.5 gallons (Travel Berkey) to holding 6 gallons (Crown Berkey). The size you chose will depend on your families size and your water needs. (One tip I have is to buy one a little larger than you think you might need because you might need the larger size in the future!) The number of elements in the Berkey is based on the size. The regular Berkeys are made with stainless steel, the Light Berkeys are made from a BPA-free plastic.

What exactly does the Berkey filter? Here's the short list: pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites while extracting chemicals including herbicides, pesticides, organic solvents, VOCs, detergents, cloudiness, silt, sediment, foul tastes and odors, cadmium, chromium, copper, lead, mercury, aluminum and other dangerous heavy metals, as well as nitrates and nitrites. And yet it still leaves in the healthful and beneficial minerals that your body needs. Isn't that amazing!

That means that you can filter water from; creeks, lakes, ponds & stagnant ponds, rain, rivers, springs, streams, tap water, water storage, wells, or pretty much anywhere! I know that gives me great security knowing that even if for some reason our well water or our community water went bad, we could still have fresh, healthy water! And if you think nothing will ever happen to your water, here's a little story for you....

Last year we had a fire get dangerously close to our home. Close as in, our family came and helped pack up everything in the car to leave. The fire trucks had to pull water from our community and all our water in our pipes started coming out black. It ran black for a day and then yellow for days afterwards. Thankfully we had water storage to get us through this time but I would have been very grateful for a Berkey during that time instead of having to depend on water we had on hand and someone else's shower!

I have a Royal Berkey (holds 3 gallons at a time). The size is supposed to be good for 4-6 people and even though there is only 3 of us right now I'm glad that I planned for the future. (Also nice to have filtered water for cooking or baking and not just drinking!)

Thanks to LPC Survival, one Little House Living reader will win their own Royal Berkey Water Filter System! ($283 retail price!) To enter, just fill out the Rafflecopter form below. This giveaway will run until September 30, 2012 at 11:59 pm EST.

I would love to have one of these. Our water is really hard. When you boil water, there is always things floating on top of the water and a white film all over the pan that has to be scoured out. I can’t imagine what that does to our bodies.

My children’s health is my number one reason for wanting a Berkey, I have just never had the extra money to get one. We filter our tap water with a Braun pitcher and I always think there is still invisible things floating around in there plus it’s plastic. So, I am probably only giving myself a false sense of “healthy” when I do that. We have had tasted water from a Berkey and you can tell the difference and I have had one on the wish list for a while now.

Lightning hit our town’s water supply power source and the municipality doesn’t yet have a backup generator. It took several days to get the pump working again, then several more after that to repair all the pipes that broke during the repressurization process. For a day or two. only essential businesses (hospitals, gas stations, grocery stores) were open. We had a “lesson” in preparedness. One thing that’s still missing from our gear: water purification system. Yours looks like a winner :)

I’d love to have one of these. Honestly I don’t trust the treatment and the filtration of the grid. I don’t want to fill landfills with plastic bottles, recycling plastic causes terrible emissions. Someday I would love to have an off the grid house. I just hope it’s by means of my own and not because of “The Revolution!”

We live in a rural area with a horrible public water system. To add to it, we have had constant issues with the water softner. We purchase filtered water in town and keep spigot jugs on the counter & fridge for drinking and cooking. I have thought for years, we should check into purchasing a Berkey.

We are moving to Alaska in January, and eventually buying some land and building our own “small house”. There’s only the two of us, and we just want to roll with the “have enough, but not too much” rule. I’ve been looking at the plans and construction for some small houses so that we have the information we will need, when we have the money to do it. A filtration system like this for us will be amazing while we’re still in cities, but also will be great for when we do eventually end up out on land – both of us being avid water drinkers, we want that peace of mind of knowing we’re not putting something harmful into our bodies. We want to know that no matter where we are, we can have clean, fresh water at our fingertips, and that’s what having a Berkey would mean to us. The key to health is awareness, and that’s what we try to follow. Thank you.

I may have entered before but I have been using some kind of filter for my drinking water for years. But even at that I believe the problems I have with stress fractures and my thyroid comes from the fluoride in our water since the 70′s. I had cancer in 07′ and beat third stage non-Hodgkin lymphoma. But these other things started after I didn’t die. LOL Doctors say we don’t get enough of it in the water to cause this yet all of my symptoms where listed to come from the fluoride. I said it’s accumulation and our bodies can’t throw it off. Well I am not able to work now and I still filter with one on my faucet. I can’t afford anything more expensive and you have to have water. Thank you I have never heard of this until I saw it on here.

I grew up on subsistence living in the wilderness with my parents and grandparents. When my grandfather passed my grandmother had to sell the land and I’ve been modernized ever since. I go to “museums” to find the things I learned how to cook on, make ice cream, sew, do laundry, garden. My way of life, or the way I long to go back to, is so foreign to the rest of civilization now. We got our water from the stream off the mountain. The water was always clean and sweet. I have never tasted water that compares, not in bottles, not out of the tap. I want to take this filter to the mountains here in the lower 48 (I’m originally from Port Vita, Alaska) and find a new stream and remember home. I have three children to pass my memories down to and I want to share a part of my bliss with them. Re-reading this I would guess everyone would think I’m over 60. I’m 35. Anyway If I don’t win one I’m going to save up. Thanks for reading.

Being a single mother on a lower income, I can only afford to rent this old house we’re in. While it’s full of charm, it has many water issues. Besides low pressure, the water has a foul odor to it. I’m fairly certain that it’s sulfur, and/or sulfur eating bacteria. I am also not keen on the fluoride being pumped into the water supply….and God only knows what else.
The plastic water bottles concern me as well, but they are all I can afford for us to drink, when I can afford to but them. Glass would be ideal, but…
These are my main reasons for needing the Berkey, for our health.

I was impressed with the food coloring in the water and how it removed all the coloring. pluss i did futher research though a lot of reading on other brand names and decided that after all that reading i was very still convience that Berkey is the way to go. The end results are what Am after. PURE WATER to drink.

With a household of eight, there is no way we can store enough water to accomadate everyone in an emergency situation. We have city water, but we are placed under boil water advisories so often that we might as well not bother. We are even in the process of trying to find someone to dig us a well, but have recently been told that it is illegal to do so in our area. Checking into that. Perhaps if we don’t win, Jolly Old St. Nick will bring us one this year.

We have a “camp” that we can go to in case of an emergency. Said camp has water, and plenty of it… but it’s down-stream from a place where they keep animals, and we’re unsure of the safety of it. We’ve been running through a rather old hand pump filter, which works fine but takes *hours* to get a gallon. A Berkley… wow, that’d be amazing. It would make being there so much easier, because now (ie no emergency) we’d no longer have to cart water in and later (ie emergency) we wouldn’t have to worry at all about water. Woot!

*wonders if you will read every comment :)*

There are actually a couple of reasons why I would love to own a Berkey water filter. First and foremost, I want to be prepared for ANY situation where my water wont filter through my home system (we are on a well with a filtration system in the basement). I fear without electricity, the poor quality of our water, which is super high in Iron and Calcium, could make us very sick with toxicity.

The second reason I would love to have one, is to provide high quality drinking water to my family NOW. My husband has been buying water from the grocery store to drink because even though we have a filtration system, it is very old and doesnt get a lot of of the water. He is freaked out by the fact that when I boil water, you can see sediment floating around the top. HE is considering getting a Culligan water cooler! I just cant fathom the thought of spending money on drinking water!

I live by the lake, and know that in an emergency, we’d have plenty available to filter. If the need came, we could share it with family, friends, or neighbors. The Berkey would allow us to share at any time, and since it is portable- at any location, without worry that we were depleting our own water supply or using costly filters. I would be grateful to win one, and would want to share the blessing with others!

Fingers crossed for a win here! I live in a very rural area and have well water, which I love… but will not drink. Why you say? Shortly after we purchased the property I had to change the well pump and tank. I have not drank the water since that day. I saw more gunk when I emptied that tank to move it than I care to remember, that’s when I thought “this stuff is in my drinking water!”. I am sure some of it was harmless minerals and just a natural occurrence but who knows and it was just gross. So, a Berkey would be a wonderful solution.

We would love a Berkey Water Filtration system because we live on a “farmette” surrounded by farmers who use all sorts of pesticides and chemicals to “treat” their crops. Being on a well, it’s only natural to assume that those chemicals will be leeched into the ground and eventually make their way into our drinking water. With babies in the house, and more to come, it would ease the mind knowing we all had safe, clean drinking water.

I used this type of filter on a daily basis when I lived and worked in East Africa. Presently, our water comes from the municipal supply (Atlanta) which is substandard. The water is taken from the river and then treated. Taste is awful and it smells heavily of chlorine especially so sometimes when waterworks do a larger than normal chlorine dump. I grew up on deep well water that came out of the tap at 40 degrees F and had a crisp, clean, fresh taste so it has been hard for me to drink any municipal water/treated water. I have been considering a water filter such as a Berkey.

Water is water and I have drank water from some real scary places as the thirst was out weighing caution. But you need water, and without it you simply die. Me? i ended up with Beaver fever on numerous occasions and on one particular time I had it real bad (craps) from simply drinking directly from a clear moving stream. But no good. On the canoe i had a little 2 hp honda and traveled to Hoonah. I stopped to fuel up next to the shore and had to bend down to pick up a paddle. that slight move created a very unnessecary evacuation of my bowels that was not at my wishing. So I had to get to shore, strip naked and have a bath. because of bad water. it took 5 days to get back to normal.
I really could use the filter as I see a direct use for it.

I’ve been wanting one of these for a while! I’m not likely to be in a situation where there’s *no* water available, just no *clean* water. My house is so small that water storage is extremely difficult, so a Berkey seems like the best compromise.

I would like to win this water system because I know the value it can serve for our family. My daughter is an avid water drinker and refuses to drink water from the tap. We have a Brita but we go through the filter so quickly, it is costing a fortune. I recently saw one at our homeschool get-together and am trying to find a way we can get one. We will have to save up for a really long time and I would love to begin having the healthy benefits of fresh, healthy filtered water right now. Please consider our family. thanks!

I have a water filter on my wish list but it’s beginning to look like I’ll never get it. :(. I’d LOVE to have one of these and not have to worry about the chemicals and additives in tap water or any water. As it is now I can barely stand the taste of the water here and don’t drink nearly as much as I should because of the taste and my son doesn’t like the taste of the water here either so I know he’s not drinking as much as he should. This would be a godsend to have.

Like so many other people, having a safe drinking water supply, even during a power outage is a concern. I live a pretty a rural lifestyle, so the power goes out as part of the normal cycle of weather (ice storms, tornadoes, etc.), if that happens, the well doesn’t work…until I get it hooked up to solar! So the Berkey is the peace of mind of having access to drinking water from the near-by creek, if the need arises.
