The Big Berkey system is the ideal system for use at home, travel, outdoor activities or during unexpected emergencies.

This powerful system purifies 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 everyday use, 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 entirely and extracts harmful chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, VOCs, organic solvents, radon 222 and trihalomethanes. It also reduces nitrates, nitrites and unhealthy minerals such as lead and mercury. This system is so powerful it can remove red food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Virtually no other system can duplicate this performance.

Constructed of highly polished 304 stainless steel, the system comes complete with two purification elements and utilizes the latest technological advances. 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.

Configured with two Black Berkey® purification elements the system will purify up to 3 1/2 Gallons (13.3 liters) per hour. This system can be expanded to use four purification elements and is capable of purifying up to 7 Gallons (26.5 liters) per hour.

Great company! Great people! October 13, 2014
Reviewer: terri hereford from titusville, FL United States  
The customer service at My Patriot Supply is second to none. The products are great. I could have bought my Big Berkey water filter elsewhere when it was sold out and on back order, but I don't trust the other guys. I was more than happy to wait until they restocked at My Patriot Supply. They called me as soon as it came in. They treat you like you are their only customer.

Water Security October 9, 2014
Reviewer: MIKE from TENNESSEE  
In all the time I have known my wife, I've never, ever seen her drink water from the tap. I don't think I've ever seen her drink chilled water from the refrigerator filter.

After ordering and receiving this system, my wife is now doing the unthinkable. She is drinking tap water from our Big Berkey. My kids are drinking this water. If we had pets, they would be drinking this water. Everyone loves the water.

For the past few summers, I've grown a variety of vegetables and I set up an IBC tote as a rain barrel. Search for "Using an IBC Tote as a Mosquito-free Rain Barrel: PVC part numbers" on youtube or use this link ( http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCK1Mb0e7zD8M8J6J7z1cxLQ ), to watch it.

I would be comfortable running water from that tote through this filter and drinking it and giving it to my family.

There was a mix-up with my order which caused a slight delivery delay, but the folks at MPS were super nice and went out of their way to make up for it. They're great!
