We use our 2.25 gallon (8.5 L) Big Berkey water filter every day. The Big Berkey is a common sense purchase that provides everyday filtered water and it gives us an option for drinkable water in emergencies. The Big Berkey filters up to 7 gallons per hour, but there are many options available, all the way up to the Crown Berkey which can filter up to 26 gallons per hour. The Big Berkey black filters can filter about 3000 gallons each, and remove 99.999% of contaminants.
Buy @ Berkey OR Buy @ Amazon
The ceramic filters are not available from Berkey any more but are available on Amazon.
