This powerful system purifiers 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 purifiers elements and utilizes the latest technological advances.

The Big Berkey® system does the following:

  • 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

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 purifiers 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.

These patented filters are unlike all others on the market and backed by years of development from some of the industry’s most respected Water filtration engineers.
