For many years, we’ve been wanting a Berkey. We aren’t exactly preppers, but we do believe in being prepared – especially if we can help others in a time of crisis. Berkeys are tall, stainless steel water filtration systems that will take pond water and make it drinkable! This is the ideal product for people who live in areas where the water is not of good quality or in case of a natural disaster. The best part is, it doesn’t strip the water of the good stuff!
We chose to order through UES because they had a better in-stock selection, but you can also find Berkey at Bulk Herb Store.
We ordered the Big Berkey with 2 black filters. You can buy an additional 2 for faster filtration. We have a family of 9 and filling up the Berkey at every meal is a must. If you want to be less “tied-down,” buy a bigger one, but consider your counter space. They are big, but well worth the investment.
If your family is looking for ways to help others in the homeschooling community, or perhaps need help yourselves, take a look at the Home School Foundation (the charity associated with HSLDA). They help homeschoolers in all sorts of difficult circumstances – from the recent tornadoes to single parent homeschoolers, families with special needs, and military families.
Speaking of military families, did you know that Apologia (one of our favorite homeschool curriculum companies!) gives a 40% discount to military and missionary families?!
