Comment of the Week

“I’m part of the Berkey cult. Before I bought mine about 5 years ago, I searched YouTube, and there were a whole mess of videos available, many by survivalist/prepper types. Some of them did send water samples to labs, which verified all the info on the Berkey website. I figured if the Berkey filter was good enough for crazy survivalists, it was good enough for me.”
