    Can anyone comment on the Berkey brand of water filters? I am considering the Big Berkey, but it is expensive. What do you suggest for alternatives? Thanks, Randle

    Should I prime my system now or wait for a disaster, to prime it? Will it hurt test the filter now? Is there a shelf life on a primed filter? Any help would be really appreciated.:)

    I have a Big Berkley & no matter what I do it leaks around the spigot. I reported it to the company & what they suggested didn't stop the leak. It appears the spigot is a flat surface & not making good contact with the round chamber. Anyone else have the problem + maybe a solution?....thanks

    There are some kits out there that sell something like a berkey filter, 2 - 5 gallon buckets and spigot. What would happen if you took 2 - 5 gallon buckets, put a single black berkey filter in the top bucket, then filled the top bucket with sand? Drilled a hole in the lid of the bottom bucket...
