We do not have a Berkey Filter on our property, but we have Sawyer and Dalton Filters. Would filtering water through them be acceptable for this BB?

I don't think that's quite the same as a Berkey so I'm not sure I'd feel good about approving it.  Maybe you know someone in the area that has one you could do this BB with?
