I just recieved mine in the mail yesterday.

 

(I'm in no way affiliated with them fyi)

 

Have to say I'm mega impressed. 

 

Went for the 2.5 gallon option, plus flouride filters-

 

The water comes out tasting sweet. Clean- Like, clearly a huge difference out of what was coming out of the tap before.


 

I invested in it (330$ including some accessories) because of getting into this hobby and wanting clean water- but also for myself-

 

and Damn am I glad I did.

 

No longer a chore to try and drink water- my body is actually excited about it. which I haven't experienced since living offgrid in the mountains.

 

If anything you're putting in your body should be clean, it's the water you're drinking.

 

Highly highly recommend this to everyone.

Great!

 

As I heard a long time ago ' Hydration = Salvation'

 

We are 99.99% water anyway.

Very cool, I think you will be happy with your purchase for a very long time. 

 

I have been using a 5gal DIY version with black berkey filters, and food grade pails since about the middle of 2017.  I absolutely love it, and cant believe it took me as long as it did to get one.  It makes our water drinkable, and the coffee taste good.  Even the pets can tell the difference and like the filtered water.   

 

I have to clean the filters every 4 months or so, but other then that I haven't had to do anything to it since I put it together the first time.  I did the math on the filters, and at our level of use a pair should last us over 4 years.  Even after daily use for over 2 years there is still no sediment or mineral deposit discoloration in the bottom bucket, and our well water has a lot of iron and calcium.
