So now I'm paranoid. If we don't test every batch of water, how do we know the filters are actually working? Most of the time, we couldn't tell by taste that they were failing; it was only the presence of red dye in the water when we tested that alerted us. I wouldn't feel comfortable at ALL trusting these filters if my health depended on it, like in a disaster or third world country. It makes me wonder how often everybody else is red dye testing their water. Probably not very often, if my experience is anywhere near typical.
On top of that, I gave up completely on the fluoride filters, which were one of my main reasons for purchasing the Berkey. No amount of flushing could get rid of the taste.
Now the plastic spigot handle has broken off (two pieces of plastic 1/16" in size at most were holding it on, one of them broke). It'll only cost $19 to replace it. My husband stuck a key ring in the hole and we're getting by until I throw the whole thing out the window or breakdown and buy the part. I'm shopping for alternatives if anybody can recommend a better filter.Read more ›
But we use so much water between us for tea and coffee and the home carbonation system, that poor little filter jug would get filled countless times per day, and that's without using it for cooking water. What I hadn't noticed was I had eventually stopped drinking water, at all. I had grown to hate water so much that I was disguising it with herbal teas and juice. That's not right. As soon as I drank my first glass of Berkey water, I could not believe how sweet and light it was. Pretty much exactly what water should be! Gone was the dreaded heavy flatness of the old filter water. It has now become a sought after beverage -- we still have to work on developing the habit, but it's quite a pleasure.
The 4 filters take up a lot of space in top and bottom reservoirs, but there's still a ton of water on tap; we don't even fill it daily now, so I am sure we will have a full year of use before cleaning and changing the filters out.
My next purchase will be the glass sight spigot, since it's cumbersome to lift the top section to check on the lower levels, and I don't really have the grip for it when full either.
The instructions are quite involved, but I figured it all out quickly enough. They tell you to put the conical white washer inside, narrow end to hole, and the flat black one outside, but it leaked with a slow drip.Read more ›

The Berkey is really a great product. There was a noticable difference between water filtered through the Berkey and water filtered through our old Purina. Read morePublished on October 4, 2013 by B. Lafleur
