I want to talk to you about my Berkey water filter which I love so stinkin’ much. But I want to discuss specifically 10 Berkey Water Filter mistakes to avoid.
The first Berkey I got was the Big Berkey, which holds 2.25 gallons of water. I thought that would be plenty for our family of 6, but I found I was filling it at least 2 times a day, which was annoying.
The filters sit in this top chamber and you pour the water in. It slowly drips and filters the clean beautiful water into the bottom chamber.
Well, if you haven’t drank through the water in the bottom chamber and you go to fill the top chamber again—you might guess what happens. Your cup overfloweth! I speak from experience. It took the hubs awhile to figure out he has to check that bottom chamber before he refills.
Another water mishap can happen if say a child comes to get a drink and notices the water is really low. Well, then the child turns the spigot on, tips the berkey to pour out the last bit of water they can get, and walks away with the spigot still turned on.
