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.

I love the concept maybe just more customer service: as in make sure you are mailing what the customer has actually ordered.
My only complaints are that it is easy to overfill and it slowly spills water all over the countertop. If the bottom container is not totally empty, don't fill the top container all the way up. It will seem fine for an hour then start slowly leaking. Not a fun thing to find in the morning.
"Q: Are the Black Filters or PF-2 Filters recyclable?
A: No. We actually don’t recommend the recycling of the Black Berkey filters, PF-2s or PF-4s."
The Berkey is definitely well built and of good quality but the metal container is really just two metal buckets with five holes in them. With that being said I do think it is overpriced for such a basic system, it seems that all the cost is coming from the "proprietary" filters which for the black filters are said to last three years (not too bad) and the fluoride filters about six months.
So in a ten year time span you will have tossed out approximately twenty six filters! To me that is a lot!
I would happily pay a premium for a product designed to last a lifetime or even some kind of refillable filter option. Until that exists or is deemed reasonable in manufacturing I'll have to look elsewhere. Bummer man.
