Berkey filters are excellent, the best

Been using Berkey filters, black ones and white ones, for over 10 years now. They filter out everything, there is nothing left but 100% pure water. The water is so pure that it actually shines in a drinking glass and the taste is clean and crisp. Berkey is excellent, they are the very best for purification filtration system bar none.

We have been using the Berkey filter system for awhile now & love them. They are extremely effective & very easy to use as well. We will continue using them for years. The water tastes excellent as well. We will never drink regular tap water again.

We have had our Berkey about 2 years now and love the water. I had one of the filters fail (split in middle) and the "warranty" was honored w/ absolutely no hastle. I received a NEW pair of black filters at 50% which was the amount left on the pro-rated warranty. Not only do these elements remove harmful agents in your tap water but the water tastes Great!!
Best tasting water around!

We purchased our Crown Berkey about 14 years ago and have used nothing but the Black Berkey Purification Elements in it since new. We thought we had "good" water from our local utility up until that time.
Our utility water comes from "Little River" which flows directly from the Great Smokey Mountains without anything but nature adding to the stream before the municipal water treatment plant pulls its supply from the mountain runoff.
When our first water bill came in after installing our Berkey on our kitchen counter, I did a double-take. Our water useage had gone up noticeably for no other reason except our 6 kids had really started to drink water after finding the taste so much better than our "mountain" supplied utility water.
When I cleaned the filters for the first time, I understood part of the taste difference. The mucky coating on the filters was a total surprise. We had all been ingesting that in our water for years. No wonder the kids preferred bottled water before our Berkey!
Today, we have only one of our kids still at home; but the others always take home a gallon or two of water with them when they stop by for a visit (or is it just a stop to get the water?). I would tell them they could get their own Berkey, but we kind'a like their regular stops by "home."

I've been using the black Berkey filters in a Big Berkey stainless urn, for several years, and really liked them. I had an issue with the extra pair I had when I went to replace the first pair, and these guys went ABOVE AND BEYOND to fix me up !! As much as i like the filters, I am even more impressed with the company backing and customer service from New Millenium, it doesn't get any better.
Keep up the good work, and thanks again, guys !!

Fabulous! I am happy to review a product when it is easy. This is too hard. Filling out all of this for an order of many things, one at a time, is asking for too much.

I used to drink a brand of water from France, because I knew it didn't have floride or other stuff in it, and because of the taste of it. That got too expensive! So I did my research and decided to try the Berkey with the addition of the floride filters, because floride is bad, Bad, BAD!!! I LOVE the water from my Berky filter and won't drink water from any other place now. You can Taste the difference!
LOVE our Berkey!

We LOVE our Berkey and recommend them to everyone. There is a noticeable difference in the smell, taste and clarity of our water. You'll notice a difference too.
Simply the Best

I have tried literally a dozen different brands, from large to small companies, and I'm sorry but Berkey water filters are the best available to consumers. My 5 year old Big Berkey still looks new with a bit of windex. The carbon filter system is FAST and efficient. With the Crown Berkey (our most recent purchase) I can dump a couple gallons in the top and within 1 hour 2/3 is filtered ready to use... Im not wealthy, but I would gladly spend a few hundred dollars again on this filter system. Clean water is as important as having a place to live.. My family and I will never go back to drinking city or bottled water again.
