            Product Features

            The versatile Big Berkey is ideal for small to medium families (1-4 people) and for use during camping, travel, outdoor activities, or unexpected emergencies. It is also ideally suited for use in small offices or waiting rooms.

            Constructed of highly polished AISI 304 stainless steel, this system has a storage capacity of 2.25 gallons (8.5 litres) and when in use, it stands 19.25” (49 cm) in height with a diameter of 8.5” (22 cm).  The upper chamber nests within the lower chamber for transport and stands only 13” (33 cm) in height.

            NOTE: Stainless steel systems must be placed on the edge of a counter, or on a stool or stand, in order to fit a glass or other container under the spigot.  You may also choose to add the optional stainless steel base to your order which raises your Berkey 5” (12.7 cm) off the counter.

            The Big Berkey comes in 4 configurations:

            •         2 Black Berkey elements
            •         2 Black Berkey elements + 2 PF-2 fluoride filters
            •         4 Black Berkey elements
            •         4 Black Berkey elements + 4 PF-2 fluoride filters

            NOTE: Increasing the number of Black Berkey elements will not change the quality of your water, it will simply increase the flow rate.  Choose more elements to increase your system’s production capacity (see How to choose my Berkey).

            System includes:

            •         Upper and lower stainless steel chambers
            •         Stainless steel lid with knob
            •         Rubber gasket to protect the base
            •         Plastic spigot
            •         2 Black Berkey elements (expandable to 4)
            •         2 washers + 2 wingnuts (expandable to 4)
            •         1 priming button
            •         2 blocking plugs 

            Optional accessories for this system:

            Maximum flow rate:

            During emergencies, the Big Berkey can produce a maximum flow rate of up to 3.5 gallons (13.3 liters) per hour when configured with 2 Black Berkey elements, and up to 7.0 gallons (26.5 liters) per hour when configured with 4 Black Berkey elements.  As such, this unit can meet the water needs of 85+ people a day during an emergency.

            NOTE: Maximum flow rate is calculated with upper chamber full to top.  Flow rate decreases as water level declines.  To achieve maximum output during an emergency, upper chamber must be maintained full at all times.
