I’m a believer in being prepared for any possible emergencies, as much as we can. In fact, I have a large plastic tub full of items we could use, should we have to flee our house in a hurry. I know some families who have a backpack for each person in the family, with emergency blankets, a change of clothes, flashlight, and snacks/foods to last 72 hours. Whatever your method of preparedness is, there is one thing that everyone should have – some type of water filter. Whether you live in an area with questionable drinking water, or you just want to be prepared should a natural disaster strike, the Big Berkey Water Filter can meet your needs.
Should a disaster strike, clean drinking water is an absolute must, and the Big Berkey Water Filter knows just how to get you what you need. Sure, we can turn to bottled water, which can be expensive, and then you have to wonder about the source of the water. The Big Berkey can filter water for less than 7 cents a gallon. The filters do eventually need to be replaced, but a standard system will filter 6000 gallons before that needs to take place.
Allow me to shed some light on just a few of the fantastic things about owning a Big Berkey water filter:
- Removes bacteria, fungus, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, and viruses.
- Doesn’t require electricity, so it works in an emergency situation, and if the power is out.
- You can take it camping and take water right out of a river or lake.
- Don’t need to boil water when municipal water goes under a boil water warning.
- Easy to use. Just fill it up and dispense water at the bottom.
