Watermatters is not a fan of 3-letter government agencies such as the EPA. However, we are also not sympathetic with Berkey’s dilemma, which includes other legal challenges that have been eclipsed by the fanfare about the EPA Stop Sale/Pesticide issue. The owner of Berkey has emerged from concealment to portray Berkey as a victim...an all-too-common tactic that is deflecting attention away from Berkey’s real shortcomings.
Watermatters now supplies Coldstream FTO Plus ceramic gravity filters which fit in existing Berkey systems. These replacement filters are also fluoride reduction filters. They do the work of both the Black Berkey elements and Berkey's PF-2 fluoride elements, combined in a single filter.
