I ran a bunch of water through my Berkey and filled up some jugs to store. A few months later, we took some camping and two of the three gallons smelled like pee...so much that I thought someone actually had peed in them.

Fast forward to a few weeks ago and I had filtered water in the Berkey that was about a week old. Go to take a drink, and there's that smell again!

I'm becoming concerned about the safety of my Berkey water for this and other reasons. What would cause it to smell like that?

I did an internet search and was surprised at the results. Many having similar problems. I will do the red dye test and if I can locate a lab, will have tests done. After reading others problems, I may stop using mine.

How long have you had your system and how often is it used? The reason I ask is we’ve had our Crown Berkey for several years and use it daily, generally cycling the full reservoir over the course of a couple days. I’ve wanted to get some extra filters but if they’re having issues with new ones then I’ll just stick with using 4.

We have 2 Big Berkey's that are used daily. The tanks are filled daily and no issues here.
