Why we love our Berkey
It rained all night last night. This morning I woke up to a bit of flooding around the RV. Recently I was asked if we need the Berkey water filter in the RV… the answer is YES!
Check out the flooding in this picture. It’s the black cargo trailer parked next to us with the young kids living in it… see their sewer line? I’m surprised (well maybe not really) that the campground can get away with this.
I can’t help but wonder how much sewage seeps back up and soaks into the ground… and later into the water source.
Our lot didn’t do much better… and the electric box thingie (whatever it is!) is several inches under water as well.
So I always feel safer filtering all of our drinking water through the Berkey. We don’t use the inline water filter on the RV as those are a bit of a joke anyway, and they really cut down on the water pressure.
I took apart the upper tension assembly on the Featherweight yesterday, cleaned and polished it, and ended up with the same wonky tension, so Graham Fordsyke over in England is sending me a replacement. I think I’ll still grab the Bernina 430 and bring it back with me!
