The versatile Big Berkey® system is the ideal system for home use in small or medium-sized families, travel, outdoor activities or during unexpected emergencies.  And is a must for countries like South Africa where the purity of even municipality water is becoming questionable at best.

Height when in use:  48.89cm

Compact Height for travel (upper chamber nests in lower): 33.02 cm

Diameter:  21.59 cm

Storage Capacity:  8.31 litres

Filtration rate: 

  • with four Black Berkey® purification elements):  26.49 litres per hour*
  • with two Black Berkey® purification elements):  13.3 litres per hour*

* Flow rate calculated with upper chamber full to top.  Flow rate decreases as water level declines.

This powerful system purifies both treated water and untreated raw water from such sources as remote lakes, streams, stagnant ponds and water supplies in countries where regulations may be substandard at best. Perfect for everyday use, outdoor activities and a must in hostile environments where electricity, water pressure or treated water may not be available.

Constructed of highly polished 304 stainless steel, this system comes complete with either two or four purification elements and utilizes the latest technological advances. 

The Big Berkey® system does the following:

  • has  Self-Sterilizing purification elements
  • removes pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites entirely
  • removes viruses MS2 and FR Coliphage
  • removes disease causing bacteria by 99.99999%, including Cholera, Typhoid, Salmonella, E. Coli, Fecal Coliform
  • extracts harmful chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, VOCs, organic solvents, radon 222 and trihalomethanes
  • reduces nitrates and nitrites
  • reduces heavy metals such as aluminium, cadmium, chromium, copper, lead and mercury by up to 99.9%
  • reduces bad taste & odours
  • removes silt and sediment making your water crystal clear

This system is so powerful it can remove red food colouring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Virtually no other system can duplicate this performance.

NOTE:   Black Berkey purification elements can be cleaned and re-used up to several years depending on the original water quality.  Additionally, it uses a gravity-based system instead of relying on electricity, thereby making this system very cost effective, especially with upcoming rises in South African electricity rates.
