NO SUCH LUCK. But first, when I flushed out the filters, I had a problem with a flouride one. They are filled with white grains, and there is a little netting to hold the stuff in. You should expect some grains to come out at first, but on one, it seemed the netting was missing or faulty. I called the number in the box, and they said they would send a new pair (they only come in pairs). I wanted to try the water immediately, so I plugged up that side and filtered my first tank.
It tasted of RUST. So I emptied it and scrubbed and tried again -- same problem. TIP: before you assemble, carefully check the inside for any rust. You might even let a little water stand in the bottom overnight and taste the water. Once rust is started, you cannot stop it by cleaning! So TAKE A PHOTO BEFORE CLEANING IT AND SEND IT BACK!. I called again and sent them photos -- they immediately sent a new bottom and a pair of flouride filters, and emailed a return shipping label. It works great and the water is amazing.
Another note, they say you can hand-tighten the spigot. I have the travel-size, so the curvature is greater than on the larger sizes. I don't know whose hands they think are that strong, but mine are not! I had to use pliers (carefully) and keep testing until no water dribbled out. I gave it a 1/8 of a turn each time, and it took 4 times before the water stopped dribbling - test OVERNIGHT - the last leak was very slow. Do not turn the spigot, it is not that strong -- turn the inside nut.
In spite of my "lemon" experience, I love the product. And the customer service # was answered on Sunday! And I received the new parts on Thursday!
A few people have asked me which water filter/purification system I chose (after months of research). I went with the Berkey (Travel Berkey for me--one human and two dogs) for a number of reasons. For one thing, both parts--the filtration half and the collection half--are stainless steel. No plastic.
It's only seven inches in diameter, which means a very small footprint. I have a small kitchen with limited counter space, but I can spare seven inches.
It's the only system I found that filters out both arsenic and fluoride.
It filters 1.5 gallons at a time, and it only takes a couple of hours to do that.
It filters not only tap water, but any water, even pool or pond water--small enough to take camping, too. (The top half fits into the bottom half.)
The black filters last for seven years; the fluoride filters last for one year--that means that each gallon of filtered water will cost under five cents.
No electricity or plumbing needed. Just pour the unfiltered water into the top filtration half. Gravity does the rest. If (I should probably say "when") there's an earthquake here in California, I will be able to filter the 38,000 gallons of pool water nearby as necessary.
Last but certainly not least, the filtered water tastes like mountain spring water. The Berkey filters out all of the pathogens and chemicals but leaves the minerals. I am very happy with this system.
Highly, highly recommended.
Here's the practical issue - you fill the top compartment, which has 2 carbon filters in it. Gradually that water seeps down through the carbon filters, through the fluoride filters which stick into the bottom compartment, and out into the bottom compartment ready to decant. This filtration process takes a long time - which is fair enough if you think of what it's doing - but the issue is that it's hard to guess how much water you should put in the top compartment (and if you put too much, hours later once it's filtered through, it leaks out of the middle seam). I guess this would be less of an issue if you don't fit the fluoride filters. Or if you "fill once and use once" (rather than continually refilling and using).
I have the water level gauge (an extension to the faucet) but it makes no difference, since it only tells you the water level in the bottom compartment. Typically I fill the top compartment in the evening so that it's ready for the morning, and its tough to guess how much to put in.
