Default drinking water dispension tool for the family

We have well water and although we filter and soften it fairly extensively we don't use it for drinking. I fill up water bottles at the reverse osmosis water filtration dispensers at the local grocery store -- we use both 5 gallon buckets and 1 gallon containers.

For the last few years we have used a Primo Water dispenser similar to this:https://www.amazon.com/Primo-Dispens...-garden&sr=1-7 but over the years I've not been happy wtih it. It clogs up inside. So I want a much simpler system.

Wondering what everyone else does.

We have a ceramic water dispenser like this one:

https://www.lowes.com/pd/Primo-Top-l...gH7w&gclsrc=ds

We don't use the legs. It just sits on our counter with the spout sticking off the edge of the counter. We've had it for at least 10yrs with no issues. Dh is the only one who can put the new water bottle on though. I can't lift it high enough.

that's precisely what we've been considering getting. I'm glad to hear that it's working for you.

I love our Berkey.

Do you have a bypass for the cold water at the kitchen sink? Softened water will always have a slightly salty, slippery taste and feel and very few people like to drink it. In my childhood the cold water from the kitchen sink was not softened so we could drink it.
