Jerry and I have talked about the need to have a good water filter handy in case we have to get drinking water from the creek. I looked at some on Lehman’s, but they run around $270!!
I was very excited to find in the comments section of their product page a link that somebody had left telling how to make your own home made Berkey water filter out of two 5 gallon buckets with lids, a pair of Berkey filter elements, and a food grade spigot. You can usually find food grade buckets and lids in the bakery department of your grocery store for free. Read the whole ingenious step-by-step on how to make your own water filter for less HERE.
