Berkey Filter Prices to Rise


Recommended Posts

I was reading survivalblog, and a guy wrote in saying that Berkey is supposed to raise all of their prices 25-30% for all products by April 15. I still haven't bought one, but now I am thinking about it. The Big Berkey's are all backordered though. Thought I'd let everyone know.

I went ahead and just forked over the cash for it. :( On Berkey's site, it's $250 for a big berkey and 2 sports bottles. I found another site that had them for $250 + 3 bottles, and I also found a site that didn't give out the freebies, but it was $199 instead of $250.

Gah...this might up my timeframe on purchasing this. I've heard of so many people buying the filters and then making their own out of 5 gallon foodgrade buckets. I didn't really want to go the plastic route, but I may have to now.

Update:

Berkey is now only going to raise prices 10%, and no more freebies. They don't want to hurt the economy any more than it already is. But they are not ruling out raising prices again if they have to.

Not as bad as 20-30%!

Try this place. They are a bit cheaper with free freight.

 

I ordered my Big Berky & Sun Oven from him also because he is in Louisiana and I wanted to support a local business.

I already ordered mine, but I will definitely bookmark this site for buying spare filters!

Make sure you order the black filters with your Berkey. They filter out a whole lot more bad stuff than the white filters. I got 4 black filters with mine but I only use 2 at a time. That way, I have a 2nd set for later.
