Product Overview

Berkey water filters provide the ultimate in waterborne contamination removal. They are used worldwide to set the international standard for water filters used in clean or hostile filtration environments. Owning a Berkey Water Filter gives you the ability to utilize almost any outside natural water source and transform it into the best tasting, purest drinking water possible. All while using a natural method without the use of chemicals or complicated processes. For normal everyday water from your faucet or for challenging environments like wells, rivers and lakes, Berkey is the most flexible and adaptable filtering system available. Berkey water costs just 1.7 CPG to produce. Through diligent testing and research, we have proven that Berkey water filters remove viruses to purification standards, pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites to undetectable levels and harmful or unwanted chemicals to below detectable levels. The filters in the Berkey system not only took the industry by storm with these unheard of benefits but also added the ability to reduce toxic heavy metals such as lead and mercury without removing the beneficial and nutritional minerals needed to support a healthy body and mind.
  • Versatile Big Berkey system is the ideal system for use at home with small or medium sized families, travel, outdoor activities or during unexpected emergencies
  • System has a storage capacity of 2.25 Gal. (8.5 l) and when in use it stands 19.25 in. H with a diameter of 8.5 in.
  • Constructed of highly polished 304 stainless steel, the system comes complete with two purification elements
  • Upper chamber nests within the lower chamber for transport and stands only 13 in. H, configured with four black Berkey purification elements the system will purify up to 7 Gal. (13.3 l) per hour

DO NOT BUY- If I could I would leave a Zero rating After doing testing , found out berkey actually Contaminates water. Using Certified RO, then Distilled water to fill berkey leaves a brown residue after running THROUGH berkey. I contacted berkey, they refuse to honor their product because I purchased from HomeDepot

    I believe as we all continue our path toward G-UNITED we can remind one another of the wonderful opportunities and most importantly the vast abundance of readily available contaminant free and so refreshing drinking water we raise to our sometimes selfish and granted mistaking parched lips of ours while third world countries are clenching their poor stomachs as some god awful bacteria ridden water not only makes them thirstier, but eventually is the root cause of so many of their ill-plague diseases brought on by literally thirsting to death. Let's see how we can through first what we believe in and second through some willingness and awareness to get some of these wonderful machines to parts of the world that could instantly start saving lives and young children's lives.

      It works wonderfully. I only wish I didn't have to buy the outer water level gage separately, it should come with the Berkey. Its expensive enough

      Very easy to setup and use. Priming was not nearly as difficult as other reviewers have said and not even necessary. The only issue is that it should come with a stand and not separate. But I found one made by Impressa that is better than the ones Berkey makes.

      Used it once. Drained the water from the unit before going on vacation for 3 weeks. After returning filled the unit with water and it would not run. I had to put a hose in the cartridges forced with hot water. It then worked. The other bad thing is that there is no indicator how much water is left. A little window would be helpful. I gave a no for recommendation for this product because it is over priced.

      Had to assemble carefully. Biggest issue was making sure the spout did not leak. Once in operation, the filtered water is excellent.

      Outstanding product in all respects. Easy to install and very efficient. The filtered water tastes great and looks incredibly clean and clear. Highly recommended if you have hard water. Our Keurig coffee maker no longer needs attention due to water contaminants. And the coffee tastes much better!

      I did a lot of research before buying this. It's the best counter top water filter on the market in my opinion. Love how easy it is to fill. I chose the light because I like being able to see the water level. I don't use the stand because it would be too tall for me to comfortably reach the top as I tend to be on the short side (5'2".) I highly recommend Berkey.

      Much better than the previous "pitcher" type filter we were using and faster flow rate means never running out of filtered water when cooking.
