Over a year ago I brought a Berkey water filter, and I have to say it's quite possibly one of the best things I've ever brought.
I don't do product placements per say - it's just not my style, however with this item I'm making an exception...
As a big fan of preparedness and as someone who is very aware of the health-destroying toxins now present in our drinking water (Arsenic, Fluoride, Chlorine, hormones, cadmium, lead, to name but a few), I'd have to say that my Berkey water filter is one of the best investments I have ever made for my health and well being.
Not only does it clean the water, but it purifies it too.
The water filter industry has a set standard of measurements which differentiate between what is 'filtered' water and what is 'purified' water.
A water filter, to meet this standard, must remove at least 99.99% of pathogenic bacteria.
The Berkey takes out over 99.9999% of pathogenic bacteria out of the water, making it a water purifier. A level that Berkey claim "To our knowledge no other water filtration device in the world can match".
It'll even allow you to turn rainwater, or even stagnant pond water into purified drinking water making it perfect for emergency preparedness situations.
A lot of people use these on camping and fishing trips because they can filter drinking water directly out of streams and rivers.
Personally I use it to filter my tap water for everyday use, but I also know in an emergency event, if the water stops coming out of my tap, I have two 220 liter food-grade water butts in my back garden full of rainwater that I can use for making drinking water just by pouring it through the Berkey. This of course means that by owning one of these filters, I have successfully secured an alternative domestic water source - one of the most important prerequisites of disaster preparedness.
I can go on about it all day, but if your really interested, take a look at my review video below, or you can see the Berkey range by .
