Sight glass spigot is really necessary

If it were not for the sight glass I am sure that I would have kept running out of clean water. It is easy to install.

Easy to assemble

This was easy to assemble and I really liked being able to see the water level in the glass view tube. A bit of a learning curve as we needed to remember to push the lever toward the container and not toward us. Perhaps this was in the directions. If not it needs to be. Pulling the lever places torque on the tube and could possibly break it off. We needed to demonstrated the proper way to our guests and children. This worked well for us. I would fill the top container with water before going to bed and the filtered water wold last throughout the next day. Love our Berkey.

Pricey but worth it

I am happy to have the glass sight spigot. I owned a Berkey without it and never over filled, but having the sight glass is nice. I figure it is going to last for years, so yeah, fifty bucks is high for a small glass tube, but the value is there. I added it to my order when I doubled up my black and white filters to a full set of four, so now my Berkey filters water a bit faster. It is a good system once you get past the buy in price. I am glad I have it.

spigot review

while the spigot alone is great, I am having problems with the seal/washer for it. It seems no matter how I put them. it will leake when I use the spigot. If there are any suggestions, I would appreciate them.

This beautiful spigot makes it so much easier to know when to refill! Thank you for a great product

Very useful water gauge. I've marked my Berkey tank with gallon range marks with a label maker and that makes it easier when filling it to prevent overfilling. Berkey is a great water purification system.

Absolute necessity

I love the sight glass spigot. I can't imagine having to lift up the top chamber every time I needed to check the water level. Definitely worth the price. we

Why would you NOT have one??

They should simply come with the Berkey automatically. Worth every penny for one. I have been trying to think of a reason for not having the sight spigot and have not come up with one. I have one down side with mine and I am not sure if it is normal, but whenever I dispense water, it always has a water bubble hung up in the spigot that eventually drops to the floor....leaving a small puddle which is how I discovered it holding the water. I have learned to catch the water before walking away. I STILL would not give up my sight spigot just because of the water bubble though. And that is the only reason I did not give it a 5 star rating.
