Berkey replacement spigot

Berkey water filter spigot

A few months ago my 2 year old granddaughter pulled on the factory plastic Royal Berkey water filter spigot. Something cracked or broke because the spigot started leaking where it connected to the Royal Berkey housing.

The spigot was removed from the Berkey, gaskets were checked, everything put back together and it still leaked. Something was broke so time to find a replacement.

While looking for a replacement I decided I did not want to go back with the factory spigot. I got on amazon, looked around and came across a Stainless Steel works beverage dispenser. What caught my eye was the high rating from uses.

I took the leap and ordered two of them. One for the Royal Berkey and one for a tea dispenser.

Options For Survivalist Water Filters

Drinking water after SHTF

Why should Survivalist worry about water filters? Because when the city water supply stops, the water in the local lakes and streams may not be safe to drink. Most survivalist have stockpiled water, and that is fine – there is nothing wrong with stockpiling water. But you need some kind of solution for after your stockpiles of water run out. A lot of people might say “I’ll just dig a well if I need water” – ok, lets get back to reality. Most of people are not going to dig a well overnight.

Here is short list of waterborne diseases and parasites:

  • Cryptosporidium
  • Cholera
  • E. Coli
  • Dysentery
  • Salmonellosis
  • Polio
  • Legionnaires’ disease

The first filter for us to look at is the Royal Berkey. The Royal Berkey water filter is made out of 304 stainless steel, has a capacity of approximately 3.25 Gallons, and has 2 filters (with each filter being able to filter an estimated 3,000 gallons of water).
