Big Berkey Water Filtration Systems Equals Clean Water #Noisegirls

Clean drinking water is a basic necessity that so many of us take for-granted.  We have the privilege to live in a developed country where clean water is rather easy to access and is safe from most harmful bacterias and parasites that plague so many other countries.  The sad reality is that here in the US and even other developed countries, our water is still for the most part not pure.  If you live in an area that the water is treated you are reminded of it when you simply turn on your tap and smell all the chlorine.  As a result of so much pollution there are many chemical and pesticide run-off that now plague our water on top of the crazy amount of pharmaceutical drugs that are now showing up in the everyday water supply.  Did you know that there is an accepted level of arsenic in our water supply!   Well there is.

Does your family currently use a water filtration system?

We always have used filtered water (when we didn’t have fresh spring fed wells) but the reality is now that we have rural water I wanted a water filtration system that could really do the job, not just a basic system.  After doing some research I decided that a Berkey System would be a great solution!  They are highly recommended and are made right here in the US.  Their gravity water filters have fast become trusted household names in more than 140 countries used by relief organizations such as UNICEF and the Red Cross Societies International.

Since they were back ordered on the Big Berkey systems due to the great increase in demand, we actually settled on a Travel size Berkey System.  On days we are home, I may have to fill it more than once but the reality is, if you were using a system in your fridge, you were doing that anyways.  We decided on the Travel system as it will work great here at home but is also compact enough to be portable.  I love the idea of being able to take it with us camping or hiking.  There is no electricity required since they are gravity systems.

It was so simple to assemble the system.  I first washed them and then the instructions were so easy it was assembled and filled in minutes!

So what sets Berkey Water Filtration Systems apart?

  • Berkey water filter systems are far superior to other filtration systems because they can remove harmful pathogenic bacteria, parasites, cysts and chemicals while not stripping the water of what our bodies actually need!

This is information taken directly from their website:  The  Berkey® system removes pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites entirely and extracts harmful chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, VOCs, organic solvents, radon 222 and trihalomethanes. It also reduces nitrates, nitrites and unhealthy minerals such as lead and mercury. This system is so powerful it can remove red food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Virtually no other system can duplicate this performance.

  • Berkey Water Filter systems are capable of purifying both treated water (municipal/city water) and untreated raw water from such sources as remote lakes, streams, stagnant ponds, and water supplies in foreign countries.
  • The micro-pores within the self-sterilizing and re-cleanable Black Berkey water filter purification elements are so small that pathogenic bacteria are simply not able to pass through them.   When they need to be cleaned you can simply take them out, rub them with ScotchBright pad under running water, and put them back in.

What about the costs?

  • Each durable Black Berkey Water filter will last up to 3000 gallons (6000 gallons per set of 2). This is so much longer than the majority of water filter solutions on the market.
  • At 10 gallons per week, this equates to more than 11.5 years of healthy clean drinking water!
  • 1 gallon of Berkey water costs you just 1.7 cents!
  • The systems range in price from $150-$325.00

There may be more of an initial cost investment up front, but in the long run you will have a water filtration system that will provide you clean water unlike any other brand and will last.  That is so worth it to me!  If you were to purchase a gallon of water from a water filtration system at a local market, even just a refill would cost you $.38 & tax.  With a Berkey Water Filtration System you would get  over 22 gallons for that price!

The Travel Berkey Water Filtration System

The Travel Berkey is constructed of highly polished 304 stainless steel and comes complete with two Black Berkey purification elements.  Each durable Black Berkey filter will last up to 3000 gallons (6000 gallons per set of 2). At 10 gallons per week, this is equivalent to 600 weeks. That’s more than 11.5 years of clean water.   It has a maximum filtratin rate of 2.5 gallons per hour and will hold 1.5  gallons of water.  Again we thought the Travel Berkey would be perfect as it can be stored and is only 12″ tall when the upper chamber is placed inside the lower chamber making it very easy to be portable.

  1. I have a crown berkey for my family and it’s working great. Now, looking at the travel berkey, I am really intrigued to get one for my bed room. It looks so petite and portable.

    1. It is an awesome filter! If you are looking for the smaller version it is great. You can place one of the canisters inside the other to make it more portable.

  2. I have heard alot of great things about this water purification system, but not one person has published any hard test result numbers as to the effect the Berkey system really has on Any water source. there are some “Lab tests” from independent testing agencies, but 1 is a online collage, another does not give the findings of the tests, they just state they havetested the water. And yet another is the manufacturer themselves. there are a many comments of how good the water tastes…. ok but what does the “purified” water contain, BEFORE, and AFTER it has been PURIFIED by the Berkry system. i would think this should be the very 1st question before spending the money. Just asking thats all.!!!

    1. Scott that is an excellent question. I have no way of testing the water myself however I do know how my water tastes before and after and it is a 100% difference! I love it!

  3. Every article about Berky filters that I was able read including this one, seem to have good and positive comments about the product. I hope to have one so soon so I can actually experience how it really works. Thanks for sharing!

    Our water company says our water is safe. Our town is getting discolored water instead of clear. We only drink bottled water. This would sure help a lot!

  5. natasha brodsky

    This would get a TON of use in our home. We drink a ton of water but try to only drink it filtered so it would be put to good use.

  6. I LOVE this- honestly I was green when green was a color in a crayola box- I like the looks and how efficient it is too!

  7. I bought a side by side refrigerator because I wanted a water filter but after the first filter went bad and we replaced it, it just didn’t seem to do the job anymore leaving the water smelling like rotten eggs. I don’t drink water on a regular basis because of the impurities and chlorine. If I wanted to drink chlorine, I would go to the neighborhood pool. I really like the way these water filters work and the fact that they remove so many more impurities than some others. This sounds like a product worth buying and with each filter able to filter up to 3000 gallons it would definitely be worth buying

  8. melissa holske

    wow i had never heard of these before but i am definitely going to have to check into them they sound like they are a great investment

  9. Marshelle Pernell

    I believe your water filters will save lives in the years to come. Thank you for think of the people.

  10. Wow, this is amazing! We currently own no water filtration system in our home, we could certainly use something like this. We throw out SO many water bottles and that’s horrible

  11. I would love to win this. I drink bottled water now and I hate the thought of all those bottles in the landfill. This travel system would be perfect for me.

  12. We have horrible city water, in fact we give our cats distilled water after the vet said the city water gives them bladder stones. This would be great for the humans in the household.

  13. Wow thats one heck of a filtration system! Thanks for the review because other filtration systems have yet to impress me 🙂

  14. I need one of these , i dont like the taste of tap water however i love the taste of bottled water. I could save alot of money.

  15. Interesting! I have a pitcher that I can store in my fridge but it’s so heavy! This would be so much easier and wouldn’t take up space in my fridge.

  16. Purified water from the tap would be much cheaper & convenient than always buying bottled water =-) Would love to try your product. Thank you.

  17. I like that it filters more than a few cups of water at a time. It would be convenient to use for cooking

  18. These are absolutely gorgeous in so many ways! I have discovered through research that filtering fluoride from my drinking water will help my autoimmune disease. I would be over-the-moon if I won this. I would also feel better about my toddler drinking Berkey water instead of our fluorinated municipal water. Fingers crossed. 🙂

  19. How could a water filtering system be so PRETTY!!!! We would love to invest in (or win) one of these! LOL! You never really have control over what’s in your water and this way you would! And would be even that much more self reliant! Thanks for the review!

  20. Jill A. Collins

    I love the price point on these and they really are beautiful. We could definitely use a water filtration system.

  21. Tami Valentine

    Our family would love this. We drink a lot of water and it’s not so good here where we live. I think that if we had a filter, the kids would want to drink more….and that’s a healthy thing!

  22. ARSENIC?! Are you kidding me?! Sheesh. Well, I’d be happy to have water filters like these to protect my family from whatever is lurking in our tap water. And these are GORGEOUS!

  23. Would luv, love, LOVE it! I am extremely particular about the water I drink and this would provide me the peace of mind necessary to really allow me to sit down and enjoy my glass of water!

  24. deena vanbergen

    Stainless steel construction means it’ll last for a very long time, so for the money, its not a bad investment, Clean water is a must.

  25. This would be great to keep outside for a summer party. I would already have ice available so people would not have to keep running in the house to get ice water.

    1. It is truly amazing! I love it and even though it is an investment upfront, it truly is worth it! It will pay itself off very quickly.

  26. I purchased a big berkey from the berkey guy about 6 months ago, upon ordering he gave me a free upgrade to a royal berkey, awesome deal! These systems are easy to use and perfect for a 4 person family.

  27. These look like a wonderful item. I would not mind having the large one in our kitchen. We drink alot of water, since we spend a lot of time outside. I think this would be a great idea.

  28. Jennifer Mae Hiles

    I’ve never seen anything like this before! It looks amazing. We have well water where I live. I use a Zero water pitcher for drinking water.

  29. We use a filter in the fridge. This system would allow for more water at a time. I’m thinking for use while cooking. They are also beautiful. They would find a central location in my kitchen.

  30. This would be so great. I have two sons who love to go camping. I also want the Big Berkey for myself, but could use this until I get one and loan it out for their camping trips. 🙂
