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.
