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.

Will never run out of water July 6, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Dresden, TN United States  
I checked out a few water filtering system and the berkey is far better than any of the rest. I tested mine with water from my pond behind my house. First a ran the water through a pair of my wife's panty hose to remove large debris than into the Berkey. Clean as water coming out of my well, maybe even cleaner.

Big Berkey Water Purifier July 2, 2014
Reviewer: Renee from Western Washington  
This is a great product!  It shipped quickly and arrived in perfect condition.  The instructions regarding how to set up the filters was very vague.....they just didn't make sense.  We looked it up on You Tube and after watching a quick video, were able to get our purifier going.  We dumped an entire bottle of red food coloring into the upper chamber, and after a couple of hours checked our clean water supply....it was crystal clear.  Water tastes great and we feel safe if ever an emergency situation comes up.  Would recommend this to anyone who has bad tasting tap water or is interested in emergency supplies.

Big Berkey June 11, 2014
Reviewer: Linda  
Received the Big Berkey within the time specified.
Works like they said it should, but not sure if water in the upper chamber is suppose to remain there when the bottom chamber is not full.....need to check into that.  Customer service is always outstanding when you call and place an order. I will be back !!

Big Berkey Water Filter and Purifier May 14, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Pace, FL United States  
Recommend Big Berkey for every day use. Removes the taste and smell of chloride and flouride in municipal water. After flooding in Pensacola area last week town was warning some water unsafe to drink. I am so glad I bought it when I did. And it doesn't look too bad sitting on the counter!
