The Big Berkey is the best addition we have made to our home. Pure, clean, healthy water for everyday or that next emergency.
I've seen some good reviews for this product and bad reviews for the company. We bought our Berkey from this website and our filters did not pass the red dye test. We emailed the company and they immediately sent new filters along with a return shipping label. The process was fast and easy. Perhaps they've changed something but I found their customer service to be great. I love our Berkey and I wouldn't buy anything else for my family. This is the best.
We gave these as gifts for Christmas to our 5 children and they were all excited and very happy to receive a Big Berkey. We have had a Big Berkey for over 15 years and felt it was a great gift to give to our children. Now we all have healthy water no matter where we live.
I've only used my Berkey for a month, but it's worked great so far! It was easy to assemble and the water tastes great. Couldn't be more pleased.
I bought this unit specifically for our winter Florida home. I am testing it now at our house by the lake areas. I used to smell fluoride and chloride in our tape water. Now it is a sweet mellow taste. The coffee is extremely better tasting. When electricity goes out, I will still have my water purification system!
