Big Berkey vs. Royal Berkey? Which Size is Best?


It's time for the battle between the Berkey sizes! Big Berkey versus Royal Berkey! Which one will be the victor?! Spoiler Alert: We ❤️  both!  Can't decide between the Big Berkey or the Royal Berkey? How does one decide and choose which Berkey size is the greatest? Having trouble selecting a Berkey system? Weigh the pros and cons of these two sizes.  Similarities: Both systems are made of stainless steel, hold up to four Black Berkey filters, and up to four fluoride filters. Their powerful filtering capabilities are the same. The main aspect that separates the two is size and cost. The Royal Berkey is bigger and therefore costs more, however, the cost over time is still about two cents per gallon no matter the Berkey system size.

Detox with Berkey Water

One simple way to remove contaminants every day is drinking purified Berkey water. It's one of the easiest way to introduce a detoxifying routine into your life. Ready to rid your body of toxins? Whatever your level of comfort is, there is a spectrum of strategies you can do to detoxify. Cleansing the body should be done with caution. Make sure to do plenty of research beforehand. Since most tap water comes from municipalities or wells, there can still be harmful contaminants in it, even after being "cleaned." It doesn't make a lot of sense to do a full body cleanse, drinking water, if the water is free of toxins itself. Berkey water is better water. Don't derail an entire detox regime with detrimental H20.  Purified water ensures that what goes in is actually going to contribute to detoxifying. Berkey Water Filter Systems remove over two-hundred contaminants. The black filters do such a good job at keeping toxins out they are considered water purifiers, a higher classification above water filters. The best water to use for a detox is Berkey water. Drinking water from a Berkey is also an easy way to incorporate detox principles into everyday life.

Can You REALLY Filter River Water Through a Berkey?

Can a Berkey really make dirty river water into clear, purified water? YES! There is a visible difference and a microscopic change that happens with water passes through a Berkey system. The appearance is clear without little "floaties" swimming around. Rest assured, the filter element have been rigorously tested--taking care of all the invisible contaminants.  The best way to filter any water source through a Berkey is by setting the lower chamber of the Berkey on a flat (or as flat as possible), stable surface. To prevent the filters breaking its ideal to use a bucket, pitcher or other container to fill with water and then pour into the upper chamber of the Berkey system. If another container is unavailable, fill the upper chamber directly with water and then place it on-top the lower chamber, careful not to break the stem of the black Berkey Filters.

Can Berkey Filter Snow?

Yes. Allow the snow to melt first. Don’t put ice or snow directly into the upper chamber. The Black Berkey Filters can become damaged and quit working if frozen. If possible boil first and allow it to cool, before putting it into your Berkey filter unit. Berkeys can filter out at least 99% of over 200 pollutants. However, without knowing what’s in your ice or snow it's a good idea to take as many precautions as possible.
