Default Berkey light water filter

Just ordered the berkey light water filter system, this is the first filter system I have ever had hope it's a good one. If you have one let me know how you have liked it or not.

I have a Big Berkey (not a light) and it's outstanding. Let us know how the light works.

For its size I think the Light is the best deal price-wise but I do like it and have the steel Travel Berkey for, well, traveling. I have spare filters and spigots too (I have a primary water-level spigot for the steel Travel Berkey and primary cup-dispenser spigot for the Light). A coupla friends have gotten the Light also and that was both before and after you could put more filters in them (two is just fine for almost all users) and the prices started shooting up. Still worth it. IMO the Black filters are just a little better at doing their job and I don't intend to drive around with them attached to the tank so don't feel I need the White filter's better durability.

I have to admit, I luv the Light's LED light base too.

Better than nothing but not a purifier IIRC. I go with the Seychelle Water Straw Advanced.
