  1. Superb water filters

    Posted by on

    Best waters filter available.


    Posted by on

    I spent a couple of years researching the best water filtration system. The Berkey was hands down the best one I could find. I have been using my "Big Berkey" for over 2 years now, still swear by it and refer it to everyone I can! I love the peace of mind I get using 2 black filters and the additional 2 fluoride filters for optimum filtration! On a side note, I love the customer service that New Millennium Concepts provides before and AFTER the sale. The employees there are awesome

  3. Win-Win-Win

    Posted by on

    We recently moved into a new place near Winchester, Virginia where the water is quite "hard" (full of minerals). Rather than purchase a water softener unit (these dump way too much sodium into the local water table, as much as into your drinking water), I decided to take our Big Berkey (purchased around 1999) out of "moth balls". So, I ordered 2 of the Berkey "Black FIlters" and installed them about a month ago. They seem to be working perfectly, although I had some initial issues try to get them to "sweat".

    I also ordered 2 of the fluoride removal filters (PF-2, I believe) since our water is city supplied and, hence, fluoridated. I had no issues with these filters as they installed well from the start. Again, it all seems to be working, as described.

    If you are going to use a Berkey filter (either big or huge), then I highly recommend purchasing the sight glass spigot. This item removes the doubt as to how much purified water is left and, as a result, I have not had one instance of overfilling the purified water chamber and causing it to leak.

    If you are going to place the Berkey on a counter, I would also highly recommend purchasing the Berkey base which is a stand that the unit sits on. It raises the unit about 5 or so inches and allows you to easily place either a glass or a cup or a coffee carafe under the spigot for filling.

    The spigot and base are one time purchases, but they are worth the investment.

    One cudo for Customer service. I was having some issues with un-purified water seeping into the lower chamber from the upper and I contacted customer service. It appeared that since I was only using two filters instead of the maximum of 4, the water was seeping through the plugs in the unused holes. Customer service (reps have been great) sent me two new plugs (mine were very old and that was probably why they were leaking) and I was "off to the races".

  4. Love our Berkey water filter system

    I can't really compare with other systems, be we use our Berkey water filter system 24/7. The people who distribute the systems and filters stand behind their product and are there to help whenever needed. Very pleased with the company and their product.

  5. Love our Berkey

    Posted by on

    We have had our Big Berkey for about 2 years and our small 'RV' Berkey for 6 months. They continually deliver great tasting water (water with no taste). Water that if just wet and refreshing.
    Don't have one, better get one.
    All their items are first class and are as advertised.

    Love our Berkey Light, we have had it for years now. Replacing filters are easy. Great deal for the $$$.

  7. Best tasting water

    Posted by on

    I've been using these filters for over 10 years and would never be without them. No matter where I am the water tastes clean and sweet.

  8. Great filters!

    Posted by on

    We replaced our old white ceramic filters with the newer black Berkey filters. They work very quickly, and supply peace of mind that our water is thoroughly cleaned of a broad range of possible contaminants. We received the new filters within 2 days of ordering. Thank you for the great product and customer service.

  9. The glue/base issue is over

    Posted by on

    The issue where the base was coming apart the filter has been resolved years ago. It was a bad batch that is long gone now.

    These are still the best water purifiers on the market, going beyond just filtration. Don't listen to the internet hype based on old information!

  10. Awesome!
