This powerful system purifies both
treated water and untreated raw water from such sources as remote lakes,
streams, stagnant ponds and water supplies in foreign countries, where
regulations may be substandard at best. Perfect for everyday use,
outdoor activities and a must in hostile environments where electricity,
water pressure or treated water may not be available.
The versatile Big
removes viruses, pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites and extracts
harmful chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, VOCs, organic
solvents, radon 222 and trihalomethanes. It also reduces rust, silt,
sediment, foul taste and odors and unhealthy minerals such as lead and
mercury. This system is so powerful it can remove red food coloring from
water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs.
Virtually no other system can duplicate this performance.
Constructed of highly polished 304
stainless steel, the system comes complete with two purification
elements and utilizes the latest technological advances. This system has
a storage capacity of about 2.25 gallons (8.5 liters) and when in use it
stands 19.25" in height with a diameter of 8.5". The upper
chamber nests within the lower chamber for transport and stands only
13" in height.
Configured with two Black Berkey™ Purification Elements the system will purify up to 3 1/2 Gallons (13.3 liters)
per hour*. This system can be expanded to use four purification elements
and is capable of purifying up to 7 Gallons (26.5 liters) per
*Flow rate calculated with upper chamber full to top. Flow rate decreases as water level declines.
