Get the Right Water Filtration System
It’s best not to take shortcuts either. Sure, you could buy some Berkey elements and drill some holes in a couple of five gallon buckets or large plastic bottles, but you’ll need more parts than you’d expect. And you’re taking a bit of a risk you don’t have to take by buying the right Berkey system.
It’s important to use the right sources of water for filtration, too. For example, don’t run sea water through. And Jeff doesn’t recommend swimming pool water. But Berkeys will filter water from a ditch or pond. Of course, let’s hope you won’t have to do that. It’s nice to know you can though, if there’s no other water available in a grid-down situation.
Berkeys go through extensive testing, so you can be sure they’ll do what the company claims they’ll do. And they’ve just released the Black Berkey Primer, which many Berkey customers want. Jeff has often been asked how to prime Black Berkey elements when there’s no water faucet available. This product was so new he couldn’t reveal much about it the day we recorded our conversation. But they’re available now, and this is proof the company is sensitive to customers’ needs and is able to provide innovative solutions. See what I wrote about it in a previous post here.

I appreciate Jeff’s zeal for integrity in the preparedness marketplace. He wants to help you make wise choices when buying preparedness items. After all, we’re talking about things which could have a bearing on survival for you and me. And, by the way, if you see any companies here at DestinySurvival which you believe have questionable products or practices, please let me know.
Allow me to wrap up with a personal note. Jeff’s company, LPC Survival, has been the longest running paid advertiser on this site. Unfortunately, it’s not always going to be possible for the ads to continue here. That’s just how things go sometimes. But whether or not you see the Berkey Guy’s ads, I encourage you to buy Berkey systems and the other preparedness products Jeff’s company offers at GoBerkey.com. It’s a pleasure doing business with Jeff. He’s been more than fair to me, and I think you’ll hear from our conversation that he’s someone you can trust, too.
As always, if you have comments about what you’ve read here or heard in this week’s show, feel free to leave a comment below and let the prepper world know.
