We have a few friends who have Berkey systems, and considered getting one. Until we discovered HydroViv.

https://www.hydroviv.com

We dropped one of their filters in here, along with a sediment filter



Everything that goes into the trailer is clean. We keep the system itself clean. We have one additional filter under the sink to a dedicated spigot, just for good measure, for all drinking and cooking water. And all our water tastes clean and fresh, no matter where we go.

Thanks for posting drjenk

Even though we live where we have wonderful water, we have a Berky water filter we use all the time at home for drinking water and coffee.

I’m wondering if you change anything in your setup when you travel?
Do you secure it? Do you travel rough roads? Do you fill the top of the Berky for filtering while you travel?

We love our Berky and almost bought one for travel.

It stores under the step for travel.

We bring 200 year-old water from the aquifer that our water company pulls out of the ground. There's talk of our town selling out the local water provider in favor of one that pulls from the Tennessee River. Yum? Of course the good water still runs through some pipes to get to us, so it is filtered at home. We always take about 20 pounds of local water with us, even though I've made the point that there's a Costco with nearly free bottled water within a days drive of everywhere in the U.S. We take 40 pounds of that, too. Good thing we have a diesel.

My travel Berkey sits in the sink while I travel with a large bath sheet wrapped around it. Then I put it on the flip up table at the end of the bed (we got an extended cabinet so ETI put in the flip up counter/table). Fits great in both places.


I actually went by their headquarters yesterday. Heck if I know exactly where it was. I'm in the Dallas area (about half way in my 2 month long trip) and my friend was driving. Also saw one of their trucks driving around. I thought "Hey, I have one of their systems".


(I also drove by the Casita factory, but they were closed for the holiday weekend. Wonder who else's headquarters I'll drive by that's related to our trailers.)
