Imperial Berkey Gravity Water Filter purifies treated water and untreated raw water from sources such as as lakes, streams, stagnant ponds, water catchments and other untreated sources. Perfect for everyday use and a must in hostile environments or disasters where electricity or treated water may not be available.

The Imperial Berkey gravity water filter system removes pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites and extracts harmful chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, VOCs, organic solvents, radon 222 and trihalomethanes. It also reduces nitrates, nitrites and unhealthy minerals such as lead and mercury. This system is so powerful it can remove food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Virtually no other system can duplicate this performance.

  1. 5 out of 5

    Dogs love it too! All three of my daughters have Berkey's and I love their water. I got the Imperial so I would have enough water to cook with and to make sure my family and our five rescue dogs have plenty of great water with no fluoride.

    size is perfect for a small family Very satisfied with this purchase. Restaurant quality construction. Really well filtered water often has the illusion of a slight sweet taste, and I get thousands of gallons of fantastic tasting water in return for my investment. The 3.0 gallon Royal Berkey seems to be the perfect compromise between the 2.25 gallon Big and the 4.5 gallon Imperial. I can't imagine a small family using a smaller unit than this without running out of water frequently. As expected, it takes a few hours to filter from empty to full. Unless you live alone, give this size some serious consideration.
