Water tastes great to our family; every other water to included bottled, tastes horrible to me now. Berkey black filters leave healthy minerals, and add trace minerals to the water during the filtration process, so you don't wind up with the RO, Zero or Distilled taste.
The Big is too small for two of us; we use it for everything that goes in our mouth. For five, I'd go bigger, and use all 4 filter spouts for increased flow.
Thanks. Sounds like we will be replacing out PUR.

Now for the big question. Best price on the berkeys? Where to get them?
I bought mine from www.bigberkeywaterfilters.com. Right now the Big size is $278 both there, 911water, and from Berkey directly. I think I remember when I bought that it was the same price everywhere but BBWF gave me free shipping to an FPO AP address.
I did not pay the $22 for their stainless spigot, and got one from Amazon for $2 instead. Highly recommend it.
FWIW I think the Imperial size is the best deal (i.e. size to cost) at the moment, and if I had it to do over, I'd go with that.

Just ordered the big berky with two extra black filters. Was going to order the royal but decided to go with smaller for space. May regret that but we all have to make choices. I also have smaller hiking style purifiers and I’m gonna get a bladder type for light weight and seat of the pants type gettin out... Any advice on gravity bladders?
