Maintaining Our Berkey® Water Purification Systems

We all know how important it is to drink water every day. In fact, the average adult should consume 64-ounces, or eight 8-ounce glasses, of water per day to keep hydrated and healthy.

Everyone here at my Bedford, New York farm drinks a lot of water. I have an excellent well water set-up, but in order to eliminate the use of large plastic water drums and limit the use of individual bottles, I use the Berkey Water Purification System. Each Berkey tank holds up to six-gallons of water and can filter more than three-gallons per-hour. I have one in every outbuilding and everyone loves them. Plus, these systems are so easy to use and maintain.

Here are some photos showing how the filters are changed - it takes just minutes to do, enjoy.
