The Berkey; Acquired

Yay, I finally got one! I couldn't win a Berkey in any contests and I entered them all, so I saved up and went ahead and bought one. I'd still love to win a camping/hiking version for my boys. I hope there will be other contests to enter. :) I'm not disappointed in this purchase. It's so much faster than the distiller that I was using and it leaves the good minerals. I like that I can use it in my cooking more. With the distiller, it took so long to make water that sometimes I just used tap water for cooking. The tips I read say you shouldn't leave the top dry for over three days with the black filters because you would have to re-prime the filters before using them again. I have two filters in so maybe I'll take one out and save it for later and have slower production and have an extra filter too! :) I had to let the water go through a couple of times to clear out the dust.. Just threw that out and now the water is pure and clean. It looks nice and lots better than the homemade one I was thinking of making with buckets. Although, I will have to see how this works out as far as the need to production ratio, and make adjustments... all in all... I like it very much.

The Berkey

Water is such an important element of life. I have rusty old pipes in a very old house and have been using a distiller for years. I would love to have something better and have researched it quite a bit. The Berkey is my definite choice. There are so many pluses to this gravity water filtration system. I've entered to win from Kelly the Kitchen Kop's blog giveaway and hope I do win so I can have the best water for myself and my family. You can enter too. OVER.

How strange and wonderful is our home, our earth,
With it's swirling vaporous atmosphere,
It's flowing and frozen climbing creatures,
The croaking things with wings that hang on rocks
And soar through fog, the furry grass, the scaly seas...
How utterly rich and wild...
Yet some among us, have the nerve,
The insolence, the brass, the gall to whine
About the limitations of our earthbound fate
And yearn for some more perfect world beyond the sky.
We are none of us good enough
For the world we have.
