Big Berkey Water Filter

The Big Berkey water filter is the absolute best portable water filter you can own, hands down! They are so powerful they are actually a lot more than just a filter. They are water purifiers because of the level of water purification that is achieved by using any of the Berkey Filters. That's why I usually start with a Big Berkey Water Filter Review, because it is the first of the non-travel or sport sizes of filters.


They are known as Gravity Water Filters because they use a top down simple approach to making clean purified water out of almost any outdoor water source. The Big Berkey Water Filter is the most popular, as it is the perfect size for most family's drinking water needs. It purifies 2 gallons at a time, and you can easily access the pure clean water by just lifting or pressing on the water spout at the bottom of the Berkey water filter system. It is really that simple.

The Big Berkey Water Filter and Purifier (pictured above) is a 3 stage water purification system. The first stage (outer ceramic layer) removes particles, as well as bacteria, cysts and other waterborne pathogens from your drinking water. The second stage is a sterilization filter, which uses colloidal silver (which zaps out bacteria growth, viruses, and other parasites. The third stage is a Granular Activated Carbon filter, which gets rid of chlorine gas odor, organic chemicals and improves the taste of your drinking water. 


Big Berkey Removes:

  • Heavy Metals
  • Chlorine
  • Bacteria, Viruses, Pathogens, Microbes
  • Particles of all sizes
  • VOC's (pesticides, herbicides, glyphosates, etc)
  • Fluoride (with Berkey Fluoride Filter)


You can also get a specialized Berkey Fluoride Filter, which will remove the fluoride if you are filtering fluoridated tap water, or bottled water. I always get this, as the added sodium fluoride is a harmful brain and immune system toxin that can lower your IQ, lead to Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and other brain and neurological conditions. It also weakens your immune system substantially. It's a no-brainer to get this stuff out of your family's drinking water asap!

The Big Berkey is the best water filter that is portable. It gets the “nasties out of your drinking water and is a beautiful stainless steel water filter that is built to last. Just ask anyone who owns one. I personally know quite a few people who also have the Big Berkey, and absolutely love it. They've also had it a long time! Just check out their overall ratings, they have 4.5 stars with over 1,298 reviews. That says a lot on it's own.
