I learned about the Berkey Water Filter System from seeing it on one of my favorite wellness influencer’s Instagram. I know, just another thing social media convinced me to buy BUT I have noticed that my tap water has developed a strong smell and odd taste over the years. I knew I needed to find a quality water filter system for my home.
Through doing my own research, I was shocked to learn about all of the chemicals that are in tap water. I highly recommend looking into what is in your tap water, I could not believe all of the chemicals that are present in the tap water I consumed for years. I decided to go with the Berkey Water Filter System after seeing data that it outperforms other portable and household water filters.
I have been using the Berkey Water Filter System for seven months now. I cannot remember which model I purchased, but I think I have the Travel Berkey (1.50 gallons) and I highly recommend it. The odd taste and smell that I experienced with my tap water is completely gone and the water tastes fresh and clean. It does take a few minutes for the water to filter into the bottom container but I don’t mind it because I know it is working hard to filter all of the junk out!
The only thing that I am surprised by is how often I need to refill the Berkey. I did not realize how much water I drink and I have to refill the Berkey at least twice a day. I guess that is a good thing! All in all, I am very happy with it. It is a bit pricey but it will last me forever (I hope!)
