We live in the country and have well water. We have it tested occasionally just to make sure it is good. Every time it is tested the water folks tell us it is of excellent quality and could be bottled and sold. When we received the Royal Berkey for review I really was not expecting much change in our water after filtration. Was I surprised at the results. The filtered water was much smoother on the tongue and had no hint of bitter flavor.
Y'all know we all did the taste test. Everyone agreed the Royal Berkey filtered water tasted much better than our well water unfiltered.
We even made ice cubes with the filtered water. Comparison showed that the unfiltered water left mineral deposits floating in the glass after the ice melted. The ice that was filtered did not. So you can see the Royal Berkey really gets the job done.
We will be moving soon and will have to deal with city water once again. What a relief it is to know that the Royal Berkey will make our water pure and clean
About the Royal Berkey Water Filter from the website:
The versatile Royal Berkey water filter is the ideal system for use at home with large families, travel, outdoor activities or during unexpected emergencies.
This powerful system purifies both treated water and untreated raw water from such sources as remote lakes, streams, stagnant ponds and water supplies in foreign countries, where regulations may be substandard at best. Perfect for outdoor activities and a must in hostile environments where electricity, water pressure or treated water may not be available.
This system removes pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites entirely and extracts harmful chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, VOCs, organic solvents, radon 222 and trihalomethanes. It also reduces nitrates, nitrites and unhealthy minerals such as lead and mercury. This system is so powerful it can remove food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Virtually no other system can duplicate this performance.
