People often call us with questions about the difference between Berkey Parts and British Berkefeld parts. There is some confusion about what is interchangeable and what is not. Much of the confusion is due to lack of information about the length of filters and the size of the holes in the systems. Here are some basic points to remember.
Water filter elements are easy as far as Berkey parts go. All of their elements are 9 inches in height. Black Berkey filters fit in all of the stainless steel models. The British Berkefeld comes with filters that are 7 inches in height. However, this system is capable of receiving 9-inch filters as well. So again, Berkey parts and British Berkfeld parts are compatible with regard to filter elements.
Berkey parts for all of the stainless steel water filter spigots require an 11/16 inch hole. This is also true with the British Berkefeld spigot. However, Berkey has an additional stem size for spigots that install on the Berkey Light. The lower chamber of this filter system requires a larger hole measuring in at 3/4 of an inch in diameter. It requires a different spigot. The Berkey Light spigot is 11/16 inches in diameter. So the Berkey Light spigot is NOT compatible with the stainless steel Berkey filters or the British Berkefleld.
One question that comes up frequently is whether the standard Berkey spigot and the standard Vino Tap spigot are compatible. They will both fit in either the stainless Berkey or the British Berkefeld, but the stems are a different diameter and the nuts that hold them in place are different. The British Berkefeld nut is 10/16 and the Berkey nut is 9/16. So you cannot interchange components of the Berkey parts with components of the British Berkefeld parts on spigots.
