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.
