Customer Reviews

Not even a call, or email,etc.
John C. Richardson
So, flow is much faster and it's convenient not to have to lift the top reservoir to check water levels in the bottom reservoir every few hours.

I had to use a thinner inner rubber washer just to get it onto the threads.

I remember that with the original spigot, flow was slow because it was so small. This is way bigger, even when it's the size specified for your particular Berkey (mine is the Big one). There are fewer issues with leakage than with the original spigot. Just be sure not to tighten the nut too much or too far along the bolt, because the washer will get completely squeezed out of place. I guess if I could offer advice, I'd say once contact is made, tighten until you see the washer move and then unscrew a couple turns until it's back to normal (you have to overtighten a bit in order to see what's correct). Also, the internal thread of this spigot is much, much shorter than the original, which worried me at first, but once everything is in place, just don't worry. The plastic is strong, and the sight glass itself is made of steel and glass, very good quality.

So, flow is much faster and it's convenient not to have to lift the top reservoir to check water levels in the bottom reservoir every few hours.

Interestingly, the top of the sight glass is open, so that if you have a full bottom reservoir, a little water spurts out the top of the glass. It only happened once when I plopped the top down too hard. (At the beginning I used to compare the sight glass reading with the actual water levels, but have since stopped disturbing everything to check.)

Another great Berkey investment. As I said in my review for the Big Berkey, it was the best $300 I've ever spent.

I ordered the Big Berkey and then added this. Unless you have xray vision this beats lifting the top off to see what's going on in the bottom. The the threaded nipple is way too short for the money, the nut barely fits on and I can see the possibility of stripping the threads. The stock tap has a nipple almost 1/2" longer. The upside is it has seemingly a better valve with definitely a better flow rate. Two thumbs up there! Cheers, Al

Ordered for one-day delivery and received in one day. Thank you.
But.
Sight glass wrapped in paper and zipped in Baggie. Ok. But in same shipping box with PF-4 heavy filters. With a single sheet of brown paper crumpled in shipping box to cushion between the two.
Arrived undamaged but buggers if I can figure out how it survived tumbling with the filters!
Also - one black flexible washer - ok - and one rigid white plastic with green felt? On the other side - not ok. Put black washer inside and plastic washer outside. Spigot leaked in a steady stream. Sigh.
Took white flexible cone washer from original spigot that came with Big Berkey and replaced the plastic one. Spigot now does not leak.
I suggest you take the white/green plastic washer that comes with the sight glass and bite it, hammer it, fling it, anything just anything but put it on your spigot assembly.
Sight glass is great and I feel essential to the Big Berkey. Except for that cursed plastic washer.

the item has a much shorter rear screw element than the regular spout and does not fit with a washer on both sides as needed. I don't know how the other people got it to work, but it was leaky for me and had to return it. I don't even think Berkey makes this??? Don't get this...

Quality product, but they need to figure out the leaking issue. This has been a complaint about these for sometime, there has to be a Washer that stops leaks. How much money would it cost?

I ordered the sight glass as an option when I ordered the royal berkey and the sight glass is just a little too short. I suppose they could have shipped the wrong one but the one they shipped allows waster to come out of the top of the sight glass before the storage chamber is full which leaves some unusable capacity in the chamber. Still works but has the effect of making the unit less capable of processing intended volume of water. Bummer

We got this to go with our Big Berkey and looks like it's almost a necessity now to see where the water level is so you don't have to lift the top anymore to see where you're at without flooding the countertop. I would recommend this for any Berkey filter to make your life a LOT easier!
