The Big Berkey is the best addition we have made to our home. Pure, clean, healthy water for everyday or that next emergency.

The extra set of black filters gives this system a great flow rate.

I love this water filter. We live in a town with terrible city water that has fluoride added. We have been using the Berkey water filter for two months now and the water tastes delicious. The filters do a phenomenal job of getting rid of all of the harmful chemicals. Easy to set up and use. I feel so much better knowing that my family is drinking pure water now without any added fluoride.
We love our Big Berkey

We initially bought our Big Berkey for our business because we didn't like the taste of city water while we were at work. We have reverse osmosis at home, but now after tasting the Berkey water, we actually like it better than the reverse osmosis! We couldn't be happier with our purchase.
WE USE OUR BERKEY FOR ALL SOURCES OF HOUSEHOLD WATER!

We absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, our Big Berkey with the 4-Black Berkey Filters. We've added 4-Berkey PF-2™ Fluoride and Arsenic Reduction Elements to our home unit for added protection, and for Emergency Survival Preparedness, just in case we need to drink our swimming pool for survival. We even use it to fill up our pet water dishes and our Coffee Maker! NOTHING, not even so-called "Purified" Bottled Drinking Water can match the fresh, clean, taste of Berkey Water! We do recommend using all four Black Berky Filter spots inside the Big Berkey because it doubled the amount of water you can purify from 6k to 12k gal. of water before replacing, and also for larger families 2.25 gallons can be used up pretty quick, so with 4-filters on the Big Berkey it fills up twice as fast with purified drinking water.
