This item cannot be shipped to California or Iowa.
The Big Berkey is the most popular size that Berkey makes. It holds enough water to satisfy 2 to 3 people, and it's unobtrusive size fits easily in most kitchens.
The Big Berkey can hold up to 4 Black Berkey filters, but can be used with only 2 filters by plugging the extra filter holes. (Two plugs are included.) The advantage of using 4 filters in the system is that it will filter the water faster. However, many of our customers choose to only use 2 filters at a time, and find that it's sufficient for their needs. Each set of 2 Black Berkey filters will purify 6000 gallons. The standard system comes with 2 Black Berkey filters. Please use our filter calculator to get an estimate of how long your Black filters will last.
The Big Berkey is also capable of reducing fluoride in your water when used with Berkey's optional PF-2 fluoride filters. The fluoride filters screw onto the Black filters.
The Big Berkey is powerful enough to purify stagnant pond water, yet perfect for everyday use. Because it works by gravity, it requires no electricity to operate. The system is very easy to operate. Simply pour your unfiltered water in the top chamber. Gravity pushes the water through the filters and your purified water is stored in the bottom chamber.
The unit has a height of 19", and a diameter of 8.5". It is made of grade 304 polished stainless steel. The system has a water storage capacity of approximately 2.25 gallons.
The Black Berkey filters used in the Big Berkey will reduce or remove pathogens, parasites, herbicides, pesticides, VOC's, heavy metals, as well as bad tastes and odors. Black Berkey filters can be cleaned by using a scotch brite pad under running water.

Wish I had found you sooner but I will recommend your products to all that I can. Keep up the great work you are doing.

The stainless steel Berkey is far more durable and easy to transport.
The purity test that came with it gives assurance that the purified water is safe to drink. The price is fitting and bearable.

Very efficient water filtration system - that can only be needed more and more in sll
kinds of situations.
i wish for a next generation of products from Berkey to offer
- more stable attachement of the lower filters to ease fill up
-a bit lower profile - to fit under US kitchen counter at 16 or 18 inches
- and a more discrete outside surface, brushed or mat, logo free.
A classic product ready for a new era

Since receiving the filter I've find myself drinking more water and also telling more people about the chemicals that forced into the water. After explaining how the filter works and giving them a taste, I think everyone is healthier and satisfied about clean "filtered" water going into their system.

After surface water infiltrated my well I bought this filter on the advice of a friend. He was right in his promotion of the quality and function of the filter and the speed of delivery. After a few days of bottled water we had our Berkey. It is perfect for my family of four. Also, I am pleased and surprised with how much better my coffee tastes!

The whole system seems to be well made,and is easy assemble. I have a Big Berkey system with two black filters and two fluoride filters. My tap water has a chlorine taste and smell to it once it goes through the Berkey all taste and smell are removed.

We have been buying 12 to 15 gallons of bottled water a week and hauling them into the house and trying to find places to store them. Now it is so simple and the water from our Berkey taste better that the bottled. Have been telling everyone how good it is. Wish we had it a long time ago.

We were looking for something to remove chlorine and fluoride. This sit on my bay window ledge above my sink and the glasses and dog dish fit under quite nicely and near the sink works for accidental drippage and refilling. I like there is no electricity. Good value. Our daughter bought one too! Tastes like water should, no taste! Services 2 adults and 2 dogs, we refill daily.

Easily assembled, best drinking water ever, and easily passed the red dye test. So cool! I have to say, I'm a family of one, and am so happy I purchased the Big Berkey rather than the Travel. I didn't realize I would be using it for virtually everything, cooking water, plants, cleaning agents, and of course, my drinking water. Takes up nearly the same amount of space, fits four filters including the fluoride filters, and even fits underneath my cabinets. It is beautiful in my kitchen, love, love!! Shower filter is a must have as well!
