  8. Sahi S.

    Great Customer Service. I was given the tracking number a day after making my payment. Shipping was fairly quick. I picked up my Big Berkey system at the post office yesterday. The items were well packaged. I set up the Berkey System yesterday using the instruction manual and watching several Youtube videos. I primed each black filter for 4-5 minutes, instead of the 5 seconds written on the manual. This way, i know that all of the trapped air and tiny sediments escape through the microscopic pores of the filters. When you prime correctly, you will notice water escaping throughout the microscopic pores. After filling the chamber with water, I noticed that the water filtering quicker than I thought. Also, I put some red food coloring to the water in the upper chamber to see if the filtered water in the lower chamber will be clear and it was! Thank you.

    My family and i live in the rural area so water has been a problem
    it usually has a very bad smell to it and that got me to research about filter systems that required no extra installation and one that wouldn’t have extra electricity costs for us
    Came across the berkey and decided to finally order it
    What can i say this is the best thing i have ever purchased! Love it!
