Good product! the unit itself appears to be a good quality, durable (very important) and easy to assemble and maintain. However, I had to make changes to my shipping address during the weeks-long period in backorder. Despite my effort to ensure that the unit would be sent to the correct address, the changes failed to be conveyed to the shipper. As a result, my Berkey unit was shipped to address over 250 miles off course, and a separate arrangement had to be made to ship from the wrong to the right address out of pocket. The unit itself would yield 5 stars, if not for the issues with shipping. Please fix the communication issues with your shipper.
Berkey are the best I’ve ever used!
The blemishes were not noticeable. I bought the Berkey to replace a 4 year old Zen water filter. The Berkey filters more impurities, takes up less space, is easier to maintain and filters much faster than the Zen. I am very happy with the Berkey and highly recommend it.
Enjoying my Berkey. Priming it was a bit trickier than I expected, and I'll likely purchase the priming pump. But the water tastes great, it's easy to use, and I've calculated that it will be much less expensive than an RO system over the short and long haul. Wish I'd bought one decades ago.
I love my Big Berkey SO MUCH!!! This is the best decision I have ever made, in terms of water filtration. My body can already feel the difference. I feel hydrated! I also purchased the fluoride filters, as I am on municipal water that is fluoridated. The flow rate is still great, and the water tastes like....WATER! No hint of chlorine at all.
Thank you Berkey, You changed my life!
