I have been using my Berkey Light for nearly 2 years now and am extremely satisfied. Prior to my purchase, I had done extensive research into different water purification systems, with the Berkey line of products impressing me most. With the first glass of newly filtered water, the thing I noticed immediately was the pure, clean taste of the water. I use a one-gallon water pitcher to keep the Berkey filled at all times. Today, when I turned on the tap at my sink to fill the pitcher, I smelled the over-whelming aroma of chlorine coming from the tap water... and this isn't the first time the chlorine smell has been so strong. With that said, I am greatly relieved in the knowledge that my decision to invest in a Berkey filter/purifier system removes so many dangerous elements from our household drinking water. I highly recommend this brand to anyone wishing to safe guard their source of drinking water.

This unit produces pure clean water; something that we cannot get from our faucet. My only criticism is that the assembly instructions could use a major rework. But we eventually figured it out and got our unit up and running.
A real life saver

I have one of these in my off-grid cabin in Oregon. I collect roof water as my only source and keep it in a cistern. Without this filter I would not have been able to drink this water and I know there have been times when if I had to consume the unfiltered water I would have been ghastly ill. I recommend this filter to everyone I know if only for emergency preparedness.

The Berkey water filter was delivered quickly and in great condition; easy to assemble and I was very pleased with how the order was carefully shipped. The water is wonderful. Thank you.

Warning: many black berkey elements are defective, and FYI Lehman's does not honor their satisfaction guarantee on anything Berkey, instead they punt to New Millenium. If there's anything in this world i cant stand, it's a liar. My last Lehman's purchase.

2 years ago, I bought this filter to try to prove it was not worth the money and I failed. I have tried everything to beat this filter and still have not. You can put whatever you want in the upper chamber (except salt water)and you will get clean water out the lower spigot. You can put food coloring in the top chamber and the filters actually filter it out, which they recommend to test the filters. They are awesome. So you just can not beat these filters, I can not live without them now. Water just tastes so much better out of them. You will not be disappointed if you get this filter.

I bought one of these for myself and one for each of my two daughters and family living out here on the Big Island. We've changed filters, but otherwise, the units are going strong after 4 years heavy daily use. I have the additional flouride et al filters, as we get acid rain from the volcanic emissions. I now need to replace spigots, as they leak. I use mine as a backup to municipal water, as I have a family childcare and wanted to ensure that the babies and young children had the best contaminant free water I can provide. Have also used this when living off power, on catchement water, in one of the city's outlying towns. I ended up buying an additional Big Berkey for use when we go outside. to play...well worth the peace of mind.

I am so excited about my new Berkey. It is all that the ad said it was. The filters are what's really impressive. There is a feeling of security knowing my family will have clean drinking water when the power goes out. Also, I could have purchased my cool blue water system anywhere, but I chose Lehman's because they are what great service is all about. Yes, I'd say I'm a happy camper.

We've been using our Berkey Light a few years now, filtering our well water for final filter because of high manganese content in local water. Highly recommend this unit. The food coloring test will simply amaze! Would feel more than confident to run raw collected rain water for consumption purposes in a pinch. And by the way, Lehman's ROCKS--great company to deal with, you won't be disappointed!!!

Delivered on time. Quality appears good. Hope that it is never needed. Purchased as a security measure for potentially troubled times.

We have used the Berkey Light Water Filter for two weeks since it arrived. (Promply I might add) and are really enjoying the taste (as there is no taste, just water) Our County water that is provided in our area was undrinkable because of the taste and we have been purchasing 2 cases of bottled water per week for the past 6 years. I estimate we will pay for the unit in our first year and have great water also. Thanks Lehmans.

I purchased the Berkey 1-1/2 yrs ago and it was the best investment in health possible!!! I used to have several colds with sore throat every year. Since drinking water from the Berkey, not a single cold or sickness. Any other water tastes horrible. City water smells like sewer, especially on weekends. Now the water tastes crisp and clean...LOVE IT!!! Highly recommend if you can't tell. :)
