Just an FYI -- Berkey water filters cannot be sold to residents in California or Iowa. This is because they make claims in their advertising about removing certain things from water. Until they pay the money to have these claims certified by an approved 3rd party lab, the consumer protection officials in these states won't allow the filters to be sold there.

Thanks much! ANd isn't it nice to know that we could serve salt water in our taps as long as it doesn't have too much manganese.
The Berkey water filter system is so powerful it is classified as a purifier. This classification shows that we far exceed the abilities of the standard water filter. The portable Berkey can be used to filter non-potable or unhealthy water in situations where electricity and pressure are not available. For normal everyday water from your faucet or for challenging environments like wells, rivers, and lakes, Berkey is the most flexible and adaptable filtering system available.
The Berkey Water Filter System is Revolutionary
Through diligent testing and research, we have proven that Berkey water filters remove viruses to purification standards, pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites to undetectable levels, and harmful or unwanted chemicals to below detectable levels. Until these test results were made public, words like non-detectable were seldom if ever used to describe the abilities of a water filter to remove harmful pollutants.
