I'm delighted to introduce our first advertiser, Berkey Water Systems.
As you can imagine, we're not about to accept ads from companies whose products we couldn't endorse with enthusiasm, and that's why we were so pleased about Berkey. This is a company solidly in the camp of folks who are concerned about our economy and our power grid. They offer products that can supply that most precious of resources - clean drinkable water - without the use of electricity. (I also like their slogan: "Helping you prepare while time is on your side.")
The filters are gravity-operated and they'll clean out any yucky element you can throw at 'em - pathogenic bacteria, cysts, parasites, herbicides, pesticides, organic solvents, detergents, silt, sediment, you name it.
Berkey is an established and respected name in water filtration. I urge you to visit their website (listed on the right-hand side of the page) and explore their products.
