Is the salt the issue or is there another problem?

I know the berkey does not have desalinization capabilities. Does it clog and damage the carbon?

I have seen that some of the salt is not removed and some of it passes through the system, thus making the water taste salty.

does the salt ruin anything on the filters?

I am ok with the taste nut didnt know if i'd need to replace anything since it is softened water.

I am interested in using caught rain water sometime not until we have our own place.

   You did not respond when I answered your question about location and contaminants.

Salt may ruin the filters, but I have atleast seen that it does not remove the salt and it can go right through.
