We are pleased with the Berkey Light Water Filter System. In addition to the two black filters (which are included with the Berkey Light), we also purchased two of the Fluoride filters (which also filter out nearly all of the residual Arsenic missed by the black filters). The set-up was straightforward; and the water tastes clean and filters through at a fairly rapid rate. We purchased this system over the stainless steal because you can see how much water is left which i love! Our only (mild) complaint--which many other users have mentioned--involves the rather flimsy, synthetic fabric full-tank cover which comes with the Berkey light system. Although it is usable, it is not appropriate for long-term daily use. Overall, I would highly recommend this system to anyone seeking a cost-effective substitute for bottled water and/or the tiny "Brita/PUR" style pitchers which never hold enough for more than one person. Yes, it's a little pricey but well worth the investment for your family. The water taste great and the system looks nice too!
