One of the most basic needs we have in many emergency situations is clean water. Water to drink, cook with, and clean with. It is hard to imagine life without clean water coming out of our tap, but it really wouldn’t take much to disrupt or contaminate a water supply. A quality water filter is one of the more important pieces of survival equipment, and as part of our National Preparedness Month celebration, LPC Survival (aka The Berkey Guy) has generously donated a Royal Berkey water filtration system for me to give to one of my amazing readers.
The Royal Berkey holds an impressive 3.25 gallons of filtered water–perfect for a family or small group. This is a gravity fed filter, which means you can fill the top at night, go to bed, and have plenty of filtered water in the morning without having to manually pump it through the filter (of course it can filter any time of the day–while you’re doing something else). It measures 9.5″ in diameter and 23″ high, and isn’t that stainless finish on the Berkey filters just so nice to look at (and clean)? Besides being lovely, Berkey also has one of the best filtration systems in the industry.
Taken from the website:
The Royal Berkey® system removes pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites entirely and extracts harmful chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, VOCs, organic solvents, radon 222 and trihalomethanes. It also reduces nitrates, nitrites and unhealthy minerals such as lead and mercury. This system is so powerful it can remove red food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Virtually no other system can duplicate this performance.
For more detailed information on exactly what these filters remove, see this page.
The black Berkey filters are self-sterilizing and they can be cleaned when they the filtration rate begins to slow down. A set of two filters (each system uses two at once) will last for 6,000 gallons! That’s approximately 4 years of use (at a rate of 4 gallons/day) from one set of filters.
Do you want to win a Royal Berkey filtration system of your own?

I would LOVE to a Berkey Water Filter. In fact I’ve wanted one for years, but I’m a poor student so I can’t afford one yet.
I visited their website, and like the Berkey water bottle. Our water here is nasty tasting, and has to be filtered to be drinkable. The water bottle would be convenient for on the go.

This Berkey is on my wishlist. Its an amazing product!
I’d love to win this Berkey Water Filtration System! I visted the LPC website and another item I would like is the “Family Preparedness Handbook.”
My husband and I continually argue about our water supply which filtered from a lake through municiple lines. It tastes horrible and I can smell the chlorine in it all the time. What I wouldn’t give to drink from the berkley water system. I have being contiplating the purchase of tattler lids as I am paying 4.00/ 12 for throwaways. I love the organic seeds and the fact that they are good for ten years but the grain mill rocks!!!
I love my Berkey Lite and want another to use for bottling and cooking purposes! Love your website and your blog! Keep up the great work.
Teresa S says
I would also like to have some spare filters for the Royal Berkey

Great giveaway. I would love a Royal Berkey filtration system. In visiting LPC Survival site, I would also be interested in the emergency seed bank.

I guess I gave a “random” blog comment so let me try this again after reading the fine print (Ok, it is BOLD and I should have known better!) :) If I could afford it, I would like a grain mill. I am gluten free and it would nice to grind my own grains right from the whole food.
Perfect! Thanks for leaving another comment! :)
I’ love a set of the rotation shelves! What a great idea!
The Berkey is what’s in my sights… we really need to get on water filtration. But the Tattler lids and seed banks are next on our list.
Katie Page says
I would so love to have a seed bank! I haven’t gotten to that part of my prep yet. I really need that water filter though and I didn’t win the last round…….
Practical Parsimony says
I would like the Country Living Grain Mill in addition the the Berkey Water Filter and the Sport Water Bottle. I signed up for the newletter, but it does not show up on the little scorecard above.
PP, after you click “do it” for each option, you should be able to click the green button at the bottom of that section and it will record your entry. It’s a little confusing sometimes. I’m not sure I love this rafflecopter form, but it sure is easy to use and moderate–much easier than my other forms I used for giveaways in the past.
Erin S says
Wow, a Berkey is a fabulous prize – one anyone would love to own, including me!
I would also like to have the Sport Berkey water bottle.
Erin Teeple says
I’d like the travel cup as well, but all are cool products.
I would like one of the seed banks or the food storage options. GMOs are destroying our food supply.
7 day ultimate emergency meal kit
I want a Berkley Water Filtration System and the fluoride filter too.
Kathy T says
What a great give-a-away! I also like the Doom and Bloom mini trauma bag.
Heather B. says

Tattler lids would be nice.
I would enjoy the solar oven!
Tonja Lynch says
We have been preparing for emergencies. Starting supplies, canned goods, dehydrated foods, seeds etc. We haven’t yet gotten to water storage or purification.
Love your seed storage & canning supplies!
So many great things on the site! I think the sports bottle is my favorite.
I would love to have the grain and seed mill!
Great giveaway! I need one of these!
I would love a seed bank, or a trauma kit.
Gayle Cooley Jones says
Would love a Berkey water filter.
It’s hard to choose a favorite with so many great options, but I probably would choose the water bottle.
Thank you, it would be great to have one of these!
We have terrible tasting water where we live. I hope using a berkey would help the taste.
Hillery T says
I love that the Berkey removes fluoride from water! So important to.avoid as much fluoride as possible to be healthy.
Would love to WIN!!
I’d love the Berkey. I’d also love to start getting some of the Wise foods to stock up for that unknown emergency.
I really need one of these, it’s the gaping hole in my prepping!
I would love to have one of the lpc trauma kits or the tattler lids.
It’s hard to find anything on the LPC site that I don’t want! I would especially like the seed banks and tattler canning lids.
I would love a Berkey! They have a lot of great things on the LPC site, other things I’d like are the Volcano grill or Grab & Go Kit. I did sign up for their newsletter.
Leah DeLuzio says
Love the Trauma Medic Bags! Also the tattler lids! What a great site.
I would love a Country Living grain mill!

Angie @ Crazy Country Momma says
I would LOVE the Country Living Grain Mill.
Beth T. says
I think the Safe Harvest Seed Bank would be great, and would make a great gift.
Stacy H says
Would love some Preparedness Books. Most of the books I have come across with the most comprehensive info is on cd or dvd format, which won’t help if we have to bug out or lose electricity! Also, seed banks and food storage are vital too!
I would love the flouride and chlorine shower filter too!
Linda Hayes says
I could just the “poke with a pin” method because I WANT IT ALL. I particularly want a Berkley filtration system large enought to handle large groups.
christine weideman says
love the tattler lids!
There are so many things I would like… Sadly, a Berkey water filter is still on of them… Tattler lids are another one…
Rachael Resurreccion says
I have been wanting a berkey filtration system for the last 6 months or so, for emergency needs and everyday use. Another item on their site that I’ve had my eye on is the country living grain mill. I have a small hand mill that takes an incredible amount of effort so someday I’d like to give this grain mill and try. Thanks for the giveaway!
I’d like a water safety test kit!
Love the heritage seed storage and the tater lids but also have my eye on the ‘city water tester’ and the books on preparedness…this site is like the Christmas Catalogue for preppers.
I would LOVE to have the grain mill!!
The Grain & Seed Mill. It would be great to have my own.
I didn’t see the grain mill. Where is everyone seeing that? That was interesting reading as to why they can’t ship to California. Looks like a real bureaucratic mess with lots of lawyers involved.
lola bruesch says
the sport water bottle as you can take it anywhere with you
keith zehnbauer says
LPCs slogan inspires fear just before it quenches our instinctual crave for the tools that allow us to survive and progress, I like it
