6 reviews for Big Berkey Water Filter – 2.25 Gallons

  1. Chris Romero

    Easy to fill too much and make a mess. Received a berkey sport bottle with purchase which does not look like the one in the photo and it leaks. Came with chipped drink spout but leaking occurs at the lid twist seal. Not the best it mine anyways.

  2. Sandra Torres

    Great for what we need, but the maintenance to keep it CLEAN, “hydrated” (i.e. consider the filter elements when traveling away from home), and leak-free (i.e. occasionally at the spigot connection) is a headache.

  3. brenda barnes

    love it, actually easy to set up if you go on YouTube and follow the video I was hesitating about being able to put it together but I followed the YouTube video and had no trouble.

  4. Jack Pitt

    I am a physician and have trained extensively in detoxification and environmental medicine. This is the water filter I recommend for my patients, and if you want clean water, this is one of the best options for you out there. The instructions included with the unit are absolutely terrible, so go to Big Berkey’s website and watch their videos.

  5. Curt Nicasio

    The tip of one of the black filters where the wing nut goes, broke clear off. Had to watch serval videos to obtain information on correct assembly. It took a while to set up, disappointed that I have to take it apart to return it. I hope the next one I order isn’t as fragile. I’m honestly wondering if I should order a new one.

  6. Diane Gill

    Although I was excited to try the Berkey Walter Filter, this product arrived with dings in it. Also, some of the black particles from the filter was loose inside the canister. I thought that I was purchasing a brand new Berkey, but evidently, this one is not. I’m returning it, and ordering directly from Berkey.
