I was kinda diappointed , or maybe just not as impressed as reviews lead me to belive. Dont get me wrong the filter does a great job in its basic design, I have always wanted a Berkey. the main reason I was able to buy it was the 20 percent off, My big complant is the screw that is supose to hold the top knob on,,,, was too short, seriously too short, would not work. for over 300 dollars one might think that quality control would notice this. Oh yea, I am a handy man I had some screws in the shop and found one that would fit, its just the idea of the customer satisfaction, slowly eroading away

I have been using my stainless steel Big Berkey with 4 black ceramic filters for at least 3 years now. I got it anticipating problems with fracking in my area but also recently had elevated lead levels show up in my water. I like the peace of mind it gives me, since it filters out lead, bacteria and organic chemicals. The only trouble I have is that I have to remember to check how much water is in the bottom chamber before adding water to the top, or it can overflow (the directions warn of this!). But I still prefer having my water from stainless steel rather than plastic. It's a simple device and easy to use. It has held up very well I tell all my friends about it.

Great product! Would never get any other kind. The black filters are also reusable.
