The Berkey Water Filter is the best Filter on the Market Today

Selecting the right Berkey Water Filter has plenty to do with how you plan to use it. To make an excellent choice when you purchase your Berkey Water Filter, there are a number of things you must acknowledge first. As you probably already know, water is a fundamental element for all life. There is no way we can exist without it! Seeing that as human beings we are composed of 60% water and our brains alone are made up of 70% water, it is impossible to live without this vital natural element.

Unfortunately, not all water is created equal. In order to thrive, safe water is a must. This means water that is packed with minerals, not chemicals such as fluoride, arsenic, or chlorine, to name a few, or destructive parasites and bacteria. Today, discovering a good water source is not all that simple. This is where the Berkey Water Filter comes in. The Berkey Water Filter makes any water source drinkable. Whether a homeowner or renter, and you do not want the hassle of installing a water filter, the Berkey Water Filter is the perfect choice! There is nothing for you to install so you can take it just about anywhere, whether camping, hiking, or on a road trip!


Many times people may wonder about the difference between the older white-ceramic filters and the more up-to-date Berkey elements. Well, the white ceramic filters removes only biological compounds and last for just six months. The Berkey Water Filter removes biological and chemical compounds and is good for 3000 gallons!

In addition, people question the amount of elements they should purchase for a family or group. This depends on the quantity of water you assume will be used by each person. You should select your Berkey Water Filter based upon each person's water use. This is important because there are several Berkey Water Filter systems.


  • Travel Berkey: holds 1.5 Gallons with a flow rate at full expansion of 2.75 gallons per hour.
  • Berkey Light: holds 2.75 gallons with a low rate at full expansion of 4.25 gallons per hour.
  • Big Berkey: holds 2.25 gallons with a flow rate at full expansion of 3.5 gallons per hour.
  • Royal Berkey: holds 3.25 gallons with a flow rate at full expansion of 4.0 gallons per hour.
  • Imperial Berkey: holds 4.5 gallons with a low rate at full expansion of 5.5 gallons per hour.
  • Crown Berkey: holds 6.0 gallons with a flow rate at full expansion of 6.5 gallons per hour.

Bear in mind, that the flow rates can be around 20% less and can be effected by the addition of fluoride filters.


Berkey Water Filters incorporate six components. They are:

  1. Lid on the unfiltered water reservoir, upper chamber.
  2. Filter water reservoir, lower chamber
  3. Ceramic or Black Berkey Wicks within the unfiltered water reservoir
  4. Optional PF2-filters hanging in the sanitized water-reservoir from the Black or Ceramic Berkey Wicks
  5. Clean water-reservoir
  6. Spigot


Every BerkeyWater System has a GPH, or gallons per hour rating and storage capacity rating. It is vital to comprehend these two ratings because of their importance in helping you decide which system to purchase. For instance, GPH is decided by the quantity of gallons of water that can be processed by the Berkey System per hour. Clean water reservoir means the quantity of water stored after being processed.


The GPH of your Berkey Water Filter is decided by the following criteria:

  • The amount of water in the unfiltered water reservoir.
  • The number of filter elements installed in the unfiltered water reservoir.
  • How unclean the unfiltered water is.


The clean water reservoir determines the quantity of water you can store atany given time exclusive of a secondary water storage apparatus like a water bag or other container.


How many Individuals will be utilizing the Berkey Water Filter?

This question is vital because it will be a determining factor for whichsize filter you should order. If only two people are utilizing the Berkey Water Filter, your requirements will differ from a family looking to supply uncontaminated safe water for four or five individuals, or a company where numerous people may be using the filter.

Don't forget that one gallon of water per day per individual is what you would need to live. Three gallons per person per day is a high comfort level at best. Berkey Water Filters are categorized by the quantity of water they store hold within their clean water tank and the quantity of water that is possible per hour to filter.

For instance, a couple requires at least one gallon of water daily per individual to survive, or roughly two gallons per day. The Berkey Light is capable of holding 2.75 gallons of clean water, and is ample enough to last through a twenty four hour period. This filter can filter four gallons of water per hour when the upper reservoir is filled.

What is the Quantity of water you want to generate per hour with the Berkey Water Filter?

You can boost the quantity of water you generate per hour by taking two actions. First, you can put in supplementary filter elements if your system has open holes. For the Travel Berkey and Berkey Light, you are restricted to two filters. The Crown Berkey can store up to eight filters.

The additional factor that will determine the quantity of water you can produce per hour is water pressure or gravity. There is nothing you can do as far as gravity is concerned; however, you can increase water pressure on your Black Berkey filters by keeping your unfiltered water reservoir topped off, then you can decide if you want to buy a bigger Berkey Water Filter system that preserves more water in the unfiltered water-reservoir.
