This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Plumbing.

In this Badge Bit, you will put collected water through a Berkey filter.  (Note that this BB is part of a 6-part choose your own adventure list BB called the Tiny List. You must complete six Badge Bits in the Tiny List.)

I’ve been using a Berkey for the last 1.5 years since I heard Jack Spirko talking about them, and refill ours every ~2 days... does that count? We switched from using an RO system for about 5 years, but all our drinking water and cooking water goes through the Berkey first. Can send pics of that right now, at work...

I'll post a link to this thread about your question to try to get Paul's attention.

Thanks Dave!

Will post them and if not, they can be deleted I guess. 😉
