If you don’t have a Berkey countertop water filter, I will say that it’s one of the best there is! We use our Big Berkey for all of our drinking water at home and when we’re out with our 5th-wheel camper.
One of my strongest suggestions for general preparedness is to buy a quality countertop water filter.
The most popular Berkey countertop model is this one:
Big Berkey, 2 gallons
(from USA Berkey Filters)
Berkey Water Filter Accessories
All of these accessories are sourced from USA Berkey Filters, an authorized Berkey water filter dealer. “The Berkey Guy”.
Glass Water Level Spigot
The best accessory for the Berkey water filter:
After using my Big Berkey for awhile, I always found it annoying that in order to find out how much water was left in the bottom reservoir, you had to lift up the top reservoir to look inside. Rather than continuing to deal with this, the first and most noteworthy accessory that I bought was the glass water level spigot! It’s a no-brainer.
Black Berkey Primer
Another useful item among the Berkey water filter accessories..
This is for the Black Berkey filter elements. The primer. New filter elements are dry. The primer accessory will gently force water into the pores of the element. Though not absolutely necessary, it speeds up the process rather than waiting for the filter element to naturally saturate and flow. Especially useful with new filter elements (and subsequent replacements over time).
Also, the Black Berkey Primer will purge (or back-flush) using air to help clean the pores of the filter element – for storage or cleaning assist.
One is none and two is one. Having an extra spigot whether it’s an extra glass water level spigot or this one, is a smart thing. If it breaks, your SOL without it.
If you have already purchased the see-through water level spigot, this replacement accessory will serve as a spare backup, just in case.
Stainless Steel Wire Stand
Different sizes available depending on which Berkey water filter that you have.
While I simply set my Big Berkey on a wooden bar stool in the kitchen, their stainless steel wire stand accessory enables you to place the filter anywhere you want – providing room underneath the spigot to fill your cup or container.
Berkey Travel Tote – Case
Do you travel with your Berkey? I do when I’m using the 5th-wheel. You might consider a purpose-designed travel case for your Berkey..
Replacement Black Berkey Filters
I always keep an extra set! Safe drinking water is Number One priority, so…
Don’t ignore the importance of safe drinking water. Water is one of the primary concerns for preparedness. There might be water all around you, but is it safe to drink? Even though it may look pristine, parasites cannot be seen…
Tip: I really like the Travel Berkey 1.5 gallon filter system. Compact size, yet yields 2.75 gallons per hour. Nice for RV or space saving on the counter.
