Are you someone who constantly updates your survival plan should there be a natural disaster or zombie apocalypse? If the answer is yes – then the Crown Berkey System is perfect for you. Even if the answer is no, you still might look into this survival water purifier.
Crown Berkey System – the Perfect Survival Water Purifier
Water is an essential resource for pretty much all life on earth. That includes us humans. Thanks to irrigation and indoor plumbing, most of the developed world has no problem with accessing clean drinking water. At the same time, one disaster could temporarily destroy our built-in systems. This is a huge concern not just for families, but hospitals and schools. And, of course, not every place in the world has drinkable tap water.
That’s where this survival water purifier comes into play. Like all of Berkey’s products, the Crown Berkey System utilizes a patented filter technology that purifies almost all waterborne bacteria and viruses, heavy metals and even fluoride and arsenic all without removing beneficial minerals. What does this mean for you? Basically you can use it to purify treated and untreated water from lakes, ponds and rivers. And, of course, you can use it treat water supplies in foreign countries.
Thanks to its standalone design, you don’t need any electricity or plumbing to get it to work. All you need is some water and then let gravity do its job of pulling the water through the purification elements. If you don’t mind lugging around the extra 12 pounds this survival water purifier adds to your luggage, you’ll never have to worry about buying bottled water when you travel ever again. Of course, it’s capacity also makes it great for relief workers. When fully configured with eight filters it can easily serve 300-625 people a day. During everyday use, it’s great for up to 12 people. Either way, it’s important to keep enough water in the upper tank if you want to have a decent flow rate throughout the day.
As the largest in the Berkey survival water purified system, the Crown Berkey has a much larger footprint. But if you have a large family and enough space, it’s definitely worth the cost. After all, it gives you the peace of mind that you’re drinking clean and delicious water.
