The versatile Big Berkey system is our most popular water purification system. It is the ideal system for use in homes with 2 to 4 family members. It is also suitable for office use, travel, outdoor activities or during unexpected emergencies.
The system is constructed from highly polished 304 stainless steel, and it comes complete with two purification elements. This storage capacity of the system is about 8.5 litres. When in use it stands 49 cm in height and it has a diameter of 22 cm. When packed for transportation, the upper chamber nests within the lower chamber and the total height is only 33 cm.
When configured with two Black Berkey Purification Elements, the system will purify up to 13 litres per hour*. This can be doubled if necessary by adding two more purification elements. The expanded system is capable of purifying up to 26 litres per hour*.
* Flow rate calculated with upper chamber full to top. Flow rate decreases as water level declines.
