    Overview

    Big Berkey™ Water Filter System

    Holding Capacity : 2.25 Gallons (8.5 L)

    Material: 304 Stainless Steel

    Finish: High Polish Stainless Steel

    The Big Berkey™ is our most popular and versatile model. It is ideal for home use and medium sized families from 2 to 4 people. Also, during an emergency situation, the Big Berkey™ can supply up to 16 people purified driking water while being filled continually and with 4 Black Berkey™ Filters equipped. 

    All of our water filter systems are designed to provide purified drinking water for a certain amount of people. The Big Berkey™ water filter, in particular, was designed to fit the needs of the average size family. 

    The Big Berkey™ is suited to produce enough water for between two and sixteen people. Large enough to provide ample water and still compact enough to fit in areas that bigger units would not. Ideally suited for home use and families or small groups. This adaptable filter comes complete including instructions and everything you need to start purifying your drinking water within minutes of assembly.
