Product Description

The 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. This powerful system filters both treated water and untreated raw water from such sources as remote lakes, streams, stagnant ponds and water supplies in foreign countries, where regulations may be substandard at best. Perfect for outdoor activities and a must in hostile environments where electricity, water pressure or treated water may not be available. The Big Berkey system removes pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites and reduces harmful chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, and VOCs without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Constructed of highly polished 304 stainless steel, the system comes complete with two 9" ceramic elements. This system has a storage capacity of about 2.25 gallons (8.5 liters) and when in use it stands 19.25" in height with a diameter of 8.5". The upper chamber nests within the lower chamber for transport and stands only 13" in height. The system will filter up to 15 Gallons per day.

This is the fifth Big Berkey unit that I have purchased over the past ten years. I keep one at home and at work and they are in constant use in both locations. The others have been given to our kids and family around the country.

They have all been very well made, bullet-proof, and deliver clean good-tasting water. All have been fitted with the second set of membrane filters in the lower chamber to remove fluoride and heavy metals, too. Though these filters can be easily moved about within a home or office, they are large and need a dedicated area for their location.

Highly recommended!

I have had my portable "Go" Berkey for several months now and take it with me everywhere I travel. Hotels in the US, friends houses, foreign destinations - everywhere! In fact, I like it so much, that I then purchased the "Big Berkey" that holds 2.25 gallons. I was so impressed with this, that I then purchased the Colossal "Crown" Berkey that holds 6.5 gallons! My 6 member family is happy with all three and they are an indispensable part of our lives. We emphasize copious water consumption and these the most logical, efficient and cost effective means of accomplishing this.

We have missionary friends in primitive areas of India and Africa who have also found the Berkey system to play a critical role in their lives. Everyone is happy with its performance.

Regarding those who say it "leaks", I can authoritatively say that the spigot only leaks for those who don't know how to "screw a lid on tight" or don't know how to properly connect a hose onto a faucet. The only "leak" issue that potential purchasers will need to be prepared for, is that it can be overfilled, causing the water to leak out between the upper and lower chambers.

Obviously, if the upper chamber is overfilled, it will cause the lower chamber to overfill, resulting in a overflow between the two. This is only a problem for those who are unprepared.

Screw on the spigot well and don't overfill, and you won't have any problems.

This is truly a professional product, that is NOT just a water filter - it is a very sophisticated water purifier. It does what it is supposed to do and does it very, very well. It is exceptionally well built and performs flawlessly.

Don't be misled by those who are misinformed and don't know the basic fundamentals of how to screw on a faucet.

The product that was recieved was very basic. Made up of a metal framework and rubber washers and stoppers, it was a portable design. However there seems to be a lot of leaks with this design since even though i loosen it and tighten it back up, some water still seeps through the cracks. My main pet peeve is that the place where i pour water is leaking and i have to have my pet's bowl of water and a towel underneath. Other than the leaking which doesn't bother me THAT much, the water is fantastic. The 4 filters i have set up with this system makes my water taste so refreshing that i can drink cup after cup and never get that "This isn't water" feeling. If you drink regular tap water you know what i'm talking about; you drink a little bit of it and stop because of either the taste or how it makes you feel. With this water, you won't notice that and you'll continue drinking it. My family replaced tap water with juices, and bottled water from all sorts of brands(Smart water being one of our favorites) and this water will save you hundreds and will pay for itself within a few months. Maybe your system will work better than mine without the leaks, but the water it produces is well worth the puddles.

Ok. so as a kid in India, remember these filters (though they were called something else) and they were the source of all clean drinking water at home (& if you have been to India you will appreciate the necessity of clean water) those had white "candles", so when I saw these, read the reviews, did the research was quite excited. Tried and tested and true. Ah-ha! So I thought. Well, after using these for about 5 months now, here are my 2 cents:

chose the white 'candles' due to complaints about the defective black filters. Frankly can't tell the difference, the white ones have worked great. Did a home water quality test when I initially got these and the white filters/candles performed well. (Note: the red dye test doesnt work on these)

A few things to keep in mind though. First the Good:
1) Berkey customer service is great. I had ordered the Big Berkey, but the Travel Berkey got delivered instead (who knows why). Called them and they were willing to both ship out a new one or adjust price.. Since the Travel size works fine for me (2 people usage) kept the smaller size. They gave me a refund. All good.
2) Water tastes sweet. This is water is meant to be like. Orlando tap water got a life with this filter.. Had been using bottled water and this tastes far superior. Also results from the home water testing kit showed most of the culprits in drinking water had been filtered out.

Also get the glass spigot, absolutely essential unless you fancy weight lifting with the upper chambers. That one shd just come standard IMHO.

The Not-so Good / Suggestions:
1) When installing keep towels and another person to help near you. It took 2 of us wrestling with the dang PF-4s to get them primed and installed.
