Everywhere I turn there is something being said about them and they are a hot selling item.
One person who bought one recently said, "This is the water filter of my dreams!"
Those are some pretty strong words seems how there are dozens of filters you can buy at the store.
I've never heard someone say that a Brita or Pur filter system was the one of their dreams. I'll tell you why later.
Within the Berkey family of filters, the Big Berkey is equally as awesome as the others such as the Berkey Light and Travel Berkey.
Big Berkey Water Filters Dominate Their Competition
It all depends upon your preference. When I say they dominate, they really do.
I've personally used all the cheap filters from the store and I've also read their spec sheets to see exactly what they eliminate from the water and how much.
On a side note, when I say the store filters are cheap, I mean the quality. As far as price, they aren't as cheap as you think.
Number one, they require you to change filters every two or three months which can really start to add up, not to mention that's highly inconvenient.
Number two, is the fact that they don't hardly filter anything so your health bills in the future have the potential to be higher to deal with all the toxins you ingest.
The cheap filters vary in what they eliminate from the tap water but one of the most popular brands out there only filters chlorine, lead and a few other heavy metals.
I looked at their spec sheet and out of those they only filter out 85% or less. One of the items they filter only at around 56%. What's the point of buying it?
The Big Berkey water filters eliminate so many harmful substances and they filter them out to non-detectable levels. We're talking 99.9999%.
Everything from pathogenic bacteria, pesticides, herbicides, VOCs, organic solvents, lead, mercury, cysts and parasites, just to name a few.
You also have the option of getting rid of the toxic fluoride.
The Big Berkey system is the ideal system for use at home with small or medium-sized families, travel, outdoor activities or during unexpected emergencies.
I would say that it's best for families of three or under. This includes enough water to drink and cook with.
It can hold up to 2.25 gallons of water once filtered. It's a gravity filter so you just pour the water in the top and watch it go to work.
There is no need for electricity or water pressure. Pretty cool huh!?
Neat Features Of The Big Berkey Water FiltersThis particular system comes configured with two Black Berkey Purification elements.
The stainless steel Big Berkey is expandable though, which means you can add two more filters if you wish to make it a total of four.
That would allow you to filter those 2.25 gallons of water even more quickly.
Another feature I love about this system is that you can literally take it wherever you go.
You can take it camping, take it on vacation or virtually anywhere. The filters last a whole year and they are actually self-sterilizing.
The Big Berkey water filters will give you a sense of peace and satisfaction that you've never gotten from another product.
