Can Berkey water be used for CPAP machines, Fish Tanks, or Baby Formula?

There are a few things that we do not recommend using Berkey water for, mainly for the reason that Berkeys do not remove minerals. For machines (example: CPAP machines) that use water, the minerals can build up and then cause damage. If something specifically calls for distilled water, it's best to double-check before using Berkey water.

Real vs. Fake Berkey

New logo on Berkey systems! A cleaner, more simplified Berkey logo is making its way on the production line. New systems will don a rectangle neatly encapsulating BerkeyŽ.  A different, unfamiliar logo is usually a cause for suspension and should raise questions about the authenticity of a product. In this case, the new logo is just a re-branding. One way to ensure you're getting the real deal verify that where you're buying your Berkey from is an Authorized Berkey Dealer. Be sure to look for the Authorized BerkeyŽ Dealer Badge when shopping.

Never Use Tap Water as an Ingredient in These Four Recipes

Don't use chlorinated tap water with these recipes! The chlorine in impure water can affect the way food tastes, smells, and bakes. Most notably chlorine kills yeast. Most municipalities use chlorine or chlorine by-products to sanitize water for its citizens. Sanitized water is great! By no means do we want cities to stop cleaning the water, however, we believe that water should be in its natural state--pure. It's especially important to use pure water for certain ingredients.  If a favorite recipe calls for water, make sure it really is just water, not a chemical soup of toxins that most tap water spits out. Tap water is a teaming mishmash of killer bacteria, lingering viruses, or traces of who-knows-what chemicals. That's why it is critical to use pure water, Berkey water, for special recipes.

It is a substance that can be seen, making the test easy to confirm, and has the molecular structure that is blocked by the purification process of the filters.
