Gravity Filters: No Need for Bottled Water

Gravity Filters: No Need for Bottled Water

Gss These British Berkefeld gravity filters are great. They allow you to perform high-quality water filtration on your counter top using gravity alone. The ceramic filters inside last for years, and need cleaning only every three months or so. They’re pretty easy to operate too — you just pour water in the top half, it the water drips down the bottom half. After a few hours you have gallons of ready-to-drink water. Link.

    I don’t get it. Is this just a big Britta?

    The main difference is the cost, Brita filters need to have their filters replaced much more often. These filters also have a larger capacity, which means you can filter water for cooking as well as drinking, for example.

    how is this news? My parents have had this exact model in their kitchen for at least two years now. I mean, it’s a great product and it’s cheaper than Britas since you just clean the filters instead of replacing them, but this technology has been out for ages…
