Exactly two years ago on December 13th, ourselves and our home were severely violated. I had another dream last night about our house getting broken into and I hope writing this will help me and anyone else who can relate. I also hope it might help prevent some of you becoming victims. It was such a horrible experience I wish it on nobody. So here is the story start to finish, with every detail some of you have never heard.
So I wanted to have a few days of testing the Berkey out before reviewing. I can say I'm completely satisfied. It was fairly easy to put together. It is recommended to run a couple gallons through to clear the filters out before drinking the water.
I did that, then came the fun test. The food coloring test. I put red food coloring into the tank, and low and behold it filtered ALL of the color out. Amazing! I love this thing!
There was no weird taste, my water actually tastes good and I don't have to worry about fluoride with these add on filters. This looks really nice sitting on my counter as well. Click on the above picture or here for a great deal from Amazon. It comes with a travel bottle. I know $258 is a lot, but it lasts 6,000 gallons!!!
I debated on whether this post would be appropriate for some of you. Then I was like "They can handle it." Because who actually likes to talk about periods? Let me tell you a little secret....almost every woman deals with a period at some point in her life! Surprised? I know right? So why do we not discuss something that is natural and common? This is not going to be a post on how women use to, or still worship their monthly cycle. This is about my discovery of something that I feel you should ALL try or at least know about. Menstrual cups! You owe it to yourself to read on even if you don't plan on trying one.
For those of you who do not know what I'm talking about, no it's not a type of dog, beagle/yorkie mix. It's a water filtration system and it looks pretty awesome. It's a portable water filtration system that filters out well, basically ALL the bad stuff. You can put rain water, river water or pool water in here. I cannot wait it will be here next week. Not only will we use it daily for our mass consumption of H2O, but it will be great if there's an emergency or Zom-pocalypse.
I know it's a little pricey up front, but it's much cheaper than the reverse osmosis in the long run. We are also getting the flouride filters with it! This thing should be 500% better than the brita we're using now. Plus I'll have that peice of mind if something ever happens to the main water supply. It sure will look pretty on the counter too! I'll update you when I've had a chance to test this bad boy out. You can find it here or with a travel water bottle here. I also plan on getting the travel bottle, just for when I'm working and away from home.
