Why Do You Need the Best Water Filter and Purifier Anyway?
I Mean, Really?! You’ve probably always had great water on-tap 24 hours a day your entire life. Why bother, and why shell-out your hard-earned money for something you don’t even need? While that makes perfect sense to most people; a wise man said “you can’t prepare for a crisis when you’re in the middle of it!” That might be the best reason for getting your own water purification system…BEFORE YOU NEED IT!
When you get down to it, it doesn’t matter if you chose a Stainless Steel Water Purifier, a Berkey “Light” Water Purification System, or even make your own Homemade Water Purifier… they all do the same thing. And, they all use the “Black Berkey Purification Elements” to filter and purify your water… way beyond government standards and regulations.
You want the peace of mind you get when you know you can take care of your own needs if an emergency happens. Having access to a water purifier turns nearly every water source into life-saving water, even if it is water you wouldn’t normally drink i.e. from a lake, pond, river, swamp, rain, flood waters, or even a mud puddle! You know your city or well water could also become contaminated or unavailable for some reason; and you hope that never happens, but it does. Be prepared.
Next to protection from immediate dangers from extreme weather or killers, we all need air, water, and food… in that order. If you run out of air it’s game over, but the odds are there will be plenty of air to go ’round even during the worst disasters. Water, Food and Shelter are non-negotiable requirements for human life.
Improved Water Quality
Many of our customers buy our water purifiers because they hate the taste or smell of their water. Others want to reduce or eliminate things like fluoride, arsenic, chlorine, heavy metals, and other “nasties.” I hesitate to say it… but many water supplies have trace amounts of feces and sometimes parasites in them. This just cannot be acceptable! You don’t want to be drinking that stuff no matter what! Just imagine serving it to your kids… NO WAY!
Save Money on Bottled Water
The bottled water industry has become a multi-billion dollar market in the US. When I was a kid we laughed at people who paid for bottled water! It was absolutely ridiculous to nearly everyone. Now it is commonplace, and I’ve done it too. The truth is… you can make your own bottled water from nearly any source and it will be purer and a lot cheaper than anything you can buy at the store!
Help Your Neighbors
If there is a disaster in your area and water becomes an urgent life-sustaining need, you may be able to boil whatever water you can find (IF fuel is available,) but the truth is boiled dirty water is drinkable, but do you really want to drink it? Not me! A small investment in a water purifier today could literally save your life and help keep your neighbors friendly if food and water are in short supply or unavailable during a disaster or in the aftermath. You can literally be a HERO or a Victim…You get to chose!
I can’t afford a water purification system right now! OK, I’m really sorry to hear that. But there is another way. Just buy a couple of purification elements, a spigot and a couple of buckets. You can see the compete instructions on how to build your own Homemade Water Purifier on this page.
I already have a water purification system installed in my home; why would I need one of yours? That’s great news! As long as you have water pressure, you are in better shape than most folks. The Berkey Water Purifiers DO NOT RELY ON CITY OR WELL WATER PRESSURE! This is a very important distinction worth thinking about. During a serious emergency like a natural disaster, you are very unlikely to have pressurized water. Our water purifiers are PRESSURIZED BY NATURAL GRAVITY ONLY! They always work whether you have water pressure at the tap or not.
Our water tastes ok and seems to be pure already; do I still need a water purifier? No, you may not need a water purifier for your current water supply at all. We call that honesty where I come from! ; – ) Some places have fantastic water at the tap all the time. In fact, most of the time the water in my town tastes great. Sometimes, however, they add a lot of chlorine to it or have advised us to “boil it until further notice” when it has become contaminated in the past. We bought our water purifiers mostly because of “What could happen” not any particular problems with our water currently. We see our water purification systems as an insurance policy in preparation for unforeseen disasters. We think a water purifier is a wise investment and sell them for the lowest prices allowed by Berkey.
