Big Berkey Countertop Water Filter
Berkey Accessories: Glass Water Level Spigot
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.
Berkey Accessories: Priming Bulb
If you have a Berkey with the black filter elements (all the new filters come with these), it’s best to have a priming bulb for it’s initial use or if you ever replace the filter elements. Priming the Black Berkey Elements saturates the filters with water prior to their use. It also purges (or back-flushes) using air instead of water to clean the pores of the filter wall for storage.

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.
Berkey Accessories: Stainless Steel Wire Stand
While I simply set my Big Berkey on the edge of a countertop, their stainless steel wire stand enables you to place the filter anywhere you want – providing room underneath the spigot to fill your cup or container.
Do not ignore your safe drinking water needs. Water is one of the primary concerns for preparedness. There might be water all around you, but is it safe to drink??
