Water filters and distillers come in all different shapes and sizes. So if you think you won’t be able to get clean, fresh and contaminant free water when you’re not at home, think again. The Big Berkey you see below is not just great for in the home, you can also take it with you on trips where your main water source is something like a pond or a river, the filtration is that good.
However, the Big Berkey is one of the higher priced water filter pitchers around, so I also had to add a distiller (still quite some money) and of course the Brita and Pur like water filters to the picture (cheap!). It’s up to you to pick your favorite.
Berkey has really done their research here, and whilst this filtration system is perfect in the home for those of you that have a small to medium sized family, they have also created a unit that will allow you to gain access to clean water when you’re in a harsh environment. It could be that you’re taking a trip and will be exploring the great outdoors.
What’s the difference between distilled and filtered water? This is a question I come across often, and I think it deserves an explanation before I get into the review for this particular product. In simple terms water that has been filtered will separated water from various contaminants that can cause nasty odors, poor taste, and in some cases various other substances that can be a threat to your health.
Lots of people buy bottled water these days, and I used to be one of them, but when I added up how much I was spending and how much effort it took getting just one six pack up the driveway I suddenly realized there had to be another way. So, for this review I’m going to tell you all about the PUR 18 cup dispenser.
