As humans, we’re made of around 50-60 percent water. It’s no wonder, then, that it’s one of the most important resources on the planet. Without drinkable water, we’d likely die within a week of dehydration. However, having access to clean drinking water isn’t always possible, even in the comfort of your own home! That’s where the Big Berkey Water Filter comes into play.
Big Berkey Water Filter – Perfect for Many Situations
As with other Berkey systems, the Big Berkey Water Filter is incredibly versatile thanks to its free-standing design. This means you can easily pack it up in your car and bring it with you when camping. At seven pounds it’s probably not great for backpacking trips though Berkey has lighter and more compact options available.
Naturally, it’s great for the home. Whether you’re on municipal water or a well, you still need to worry about the harmful contaminants in the water. Luckily, the Big Berkey Water Filter manages to remove almost all waterborne pathogens, heavy metals and other contaminants without filtering out beneficial minerals. This comes with the added benefit of better tasting water. The side effect? You and your family may end up drinking more water daily.
More importantly, those who purchase the filter can have better peace of mind if/when an emergency hits. Since it doesn’t require you to hook up to plumbing, you and your family can have fresh water so long as you can find a water source. And since the filters remove almost every contaminant you can get water from almost every source including ponds and lakes.
Need more convincing? It can also save you a ton of water and help the environment since you won’t need to buy bottled water anymore. Plus the filters can last up to three years so long as you clean and maintain them.
