Royal Berkey Water Filter Giveaway - $369 Value

This month I’m giving away a Royal Berkey with 2 Black Filters and 2 PF-2 Fluoride Filters — a $369 retail value.

Royal Berkey with 2 Black Filters and 2 PF-2 Fluoride Filters

I asked you all on Facebook what you wanted to win. You voted and the Berkey Water Filter came out on top.

The larger Royal Berkey Water Filter system is ideal for larger families. It’s designed for 4 to 26 people and is great for emergencies. It has a 3 gallon storage capacity.

With 2 black filters, which is what I am giving away, this baby will produce anywhere from 4 gallons of purified water per hour. Two black filters is really all you need for up to 13 people. I’m also including 2 fluoride filters so you can filter out the fluoride.

This is exactly the same set up I have in my house.

I love my Berkey. I got it when we lived in Las Vegas. We have a reverse osmosis under-the-sink filter in our kitchen here in LA, but I am so glad I got the Berkey.

Why? Because I know that if there is ever an emergency, we will be covered. A Berkey will filter swamp water. If we ever find ourselves in a situation where we don’t have power or water, all we have to do is pour water — pool water, water from a nearby creek, whatever — into our Berkey and we’ll have pure drinking water.

You can live without food a lot longer than you can live without water. You gotta have a back-up plan! The Berkey is ours.

Winning is Fun!

Giving away something every month gives more of my readers a chance to win more stuff.

I pay for these prizes myself. I choose them, based on your votes on Facebook, and I have them shipped direct to your door.

Amazing giveaway! Thank you! Also I’m getting an error when I try to repin on Pinterest from the widget, using the Pinterest icon at the bottom of your post works just fine though. :)


Bobbi March 2, 2013 at 5:03 PM

Thanks for another wonderful giveaway! I didn’t win the Vitamix but I will win this Berkey! :) We are starting a kitchen remodel in which we are specifically making a place for this exact model. How cool would it be to win? :)

I can’t do the instagram entry as I don’t have the ability to make an account.
And I can’t do the Pinterest one because it says the link isn’t valid. hhhmmmm


Ann Marie Michaels March 2, 2013 at 7:52 PM

I think I fixed the Pinterest thing – try it now

Awesome giveaway! Thank you for the opportunity. :)


Heather March 2, 2013 at 6:10 PM

Awesome giveaway. Thanks Anne Marie!


Debbie March 2, 2013 at 6:16 PM

What an intelligent idea for a chance item to win! Anyone who has traveled abroad especially to Latin American and other countries soon learns about the importance of water purification! Unfortunately here in the USA we forget about the importance and also the fact that while our water may be ‘pure and clean AT the source’ by the time it snakes its way through miles of pipe to the faucet it will have acquired bits and pieces of microscopic material including lead and asbestos that we unwittingly ingest or absorb through drinking, eating and the simple act of washing. Also, PPM (parts per million) of many things including cryptosporidium are permissible and anyone who has ever suffered from that (me, about 8 years ago in my former home in Contra Costa County, CA) knows that it can mean a trip to the emergency room and in some people worse (can be deadly.)


Harmony March 2, 2013 at 6:16 PM

Amazing giveaway! Thank you!


Carmen March 2, 2013 at 6:23 PM

Fingers crossed!


Brenda March 2, 2013 at 6:32 PM

Love reading your posts on FB! So glad I found you. Yet another great giveaway! Thanks!


Andrea Merrigan March 2, 2013 at 6:36 PM

I have this water filter and LOVE it. We have the smaller size since it is just the two of us, but we could really use the family size for as much water as we go through. I use the water for everything from baking, boiling water on stove for dinners, coffee, and drinking water! Quick question, it has been awhile since i bought mine so I dont remember everything the regular black filters actually filter….does it not filter fluoride? Would I need to buy their fluoride filters for that and do the fluoride filters ONLY filter fluoride? I only have two slots for filters in our small one, so curious how that works.


Jennifer March 6, 2013 at 3:07 PM

Andrea, the black filters DO NOT filter flouride. You need to get the filters that specifically filter flouride and arsenic and other things. They are white and actually screw onto the stem of the black filters that extend into the bottom tank. So the water that is filtered continues down through the second filter. We don’t have added flouride, but do have naturally high arsenic in the city water. I love my Berkey water filter!


Beth M March 2, 2013 at 6:46 PM

Thanks so much for the chance at giveaway–a good water filter is one of the life changes I’ve longed for such a long time!


Michelle March 2, 2013 at 7:04 PM

SJ Roragen March 2, 2013 at 7:21 PM

Beth March 2, 2013 at 8:11 PM

I would love this filter! Our county is about to introduce flouride into the public water system and lots of people are really upset about it. Hope to win!


Sharon Lee March 2, 2013 at 8:22 PM

Another nice giveaway! I’m a subscriber and thanks for the chance!

Judy March 3, 2013 at 4:32 AM

What an awesome giveaway!!


Leanne Overlander March 3, 2013 at 5:47 AM

This is an awesome give-away! My brother-in-law has one and his city water almost tastes as good as our well water. We are looking at moving and will be potentially living where we no longer have access to well water and this would be perfect to have!. Thanks!


Marsha March 3, 2013 at 5:49 AM

So excited! Hope I win! Thank you for the awesome opportunity :)


Sarah B. March 3, 2013 at 6:14 AM

Linda March 3, 2013 at 7:10 AM

How do I follow you on pinterest and those other ones? I can’t seem to find a user name that isn’t already taken. I would love to win this to get rid of the flouride.


Pamela March 3, 2013 at 8:51 AM

I have to tell you that you keep doing giveaways for items that are on my wish list. I’ve wanted a Berkey filter for a few years now. Here’s hoping I can cross this one of my list soon!


KatieQ March 3, 2013 at 11:23 AM

I wasn’t familiar with this water filter until reading your post. Thanks for offering wonderful giveaways and introducing us to great products.


Angel March 3, 2013 at 11:55 AM

I had a whole house water system installed for my house in florida, but had to move away in order to be closer to family. I really worry about the water supply here in louisiana and would so love to have one of these!


carmell March 3, 2013 at 12:57 PM

Joan March 3, 2013 at 8:34 PM

Would l-o-v-e to win this water filter so I would not have to buy bottled water. What a wonderful giveaway.


Aimee March 3, 2013 at 9:31 PM

I am definitely wanting one of these filters!! THANKS!


Lauralee L. March 4, 2013 at 12:25 AM

I have been wanting one of these ever since I realized that my britta filter does not remove as much as I had thought it was. Have been doing a lot of internet research and so far I have yet to find anything as great as this filter system. It removes more contaminants than most filter systems on the market and also does not strip your water of it’s minerals. Plus it looks great too! Thanks for a chance to win it!


Jodi March 4, 2013 at 5:35 AM

Ann Marie, thanks so much for a great giveaway. Going for this to have some water to make water kefir — so that I don’t have to keep purchasing spring water. Plus, the Berkey is GREAT!!!! We could go on long camping trips. And if we move overseas — this bad boy could go with us. Thanks again! I appreciate you and have been sending new friends your way!


AnnMarie Deis March 4, 2013 at 6:44 AM

I have been looking into getting a Berkey filter for two years now! It just never seems that I have the $$$ in the budget to do so. :( This is an AMAZING giveaway!!!!!!!! You are too generous! xoxo


Christine Smith March 4, 2013 at 11:38 AM

Thanks for the great giveaways!!


Laura Gettman March 4, 2013 at 3:45 PM

So awsome! I really want one of these!!!!! What a great giveaway =)


Joe March 4, 2013 at 5:56 PM

Why in God’s name would you even WANT to filter flouride out of your water??


Ann Marie Michaels March 4, 2013 at 7:16 PM
PK March 5, 2013 at 9:16 AM

I’ve searched high n low…and there’s no rafflopter widget on the page I’m looking at, or on the link which opened to Amazon (of course). Please help.


PK March 5, 2013 at 9:26 AM

It was a browser issue. I reopened the website with FireFox and it was there.


Daniela H. March 5, 2013 at 12:38 PM

I want this sooooo bad!!!


Jo Schoeneck March 5, 2013 at 1:43 PM

My daughter has one and it is amazing. I want one so badly. I use theirs like crazy when I visit.


Sheree March 5, 2013 at 3:43 PM

Thanks so much for having this wonderful giveaway! And thank you for your awesome blog! Reading on your blog last year helped me to realize that I have a thyroid problem…. currently trying to get it under control with the desiccated thyroid.


Daphne Blumenthal March 6, 2013 at 11:34 AM

Hi Ann Marie – You live in California, right? I think we should boycott Berkey because of their stubborn stance on selling to the California market. Yes, I know their travel products ship to CA now, but I’m trying to get away from plastic. I read on your FB post that the Big Berkey is now shipping to CA via Amazon. However I just called one of the dealers and they will not ship to CA. I think the company is either being pigheaded about CA, or they have something to hide with regard to lead content. This has been going on for years with no satisfactory explanation, and I’m tired of reading about the “magical” Berkey and being shut out. After further research I’ve found a product called “Newton Princess” which seems quite similar. Thanks, Daphne


Daphne Blumenthal March 6, 2013 at 12:46 PM

Hope you don’t mind an update but I just talked to the lady at She was EXTREMELY informative (despite a heavy accent). So I’ll be buying from them.


Jackie March 6, 2013 at 1:03 PM

If I win this then you will here me screaming with joy from Indiana! LOL thank for the awesome give away!


Lynn March 11, 2013 at 8:09 AM

What a great giveaway! I need to get rid of the fluoride in my water!


sheila March 13, 2013 at 11:50 AM

Really enjoying your blog…thank you for all the great information. Looking to get flouride out of my drinking water for my kids!


Charity March 13, 2013 at 3:19 PM

I am already subscribed to your newsletter and feed. Thanks so much for hosting this giveaway! My family was just talking about the need to get a Berkey but it is a huge investment. Winning one would be such a blessing!


Kristy Kelley March 14, 2013 at 5:34 PM

Thanks so much! I’ve been wanting to order one of these. What a great contest!


Carla March 15, 2013 at 4:22 AM

This is a GREAT giveaway!! I always feel like I’m stickin’ it to the man when I manage to get around the flouride issue, haha…


Carolyn March 15, 2013 at 5:46 AM

I THINK I entered on the rafflecopter site, but, boy, am I hoping to win this, so I’m going to comment here, too, JUST IN CASE. I have hyper-sensitive scar tissue on my hand that is SO not liking my tap water, which makes me wonder what’s in the tap water and if I want to be drinking it if my hand doesn’t even like it.


Chris March 15, 2013 at 6:44 AM

Wow, hope I win!


Sarah Gray March 18, 2013 at 3:13 AM

So excited about the water filter but my husband wants to see how they’re really sure it doesn’t also filter out minerals. Which websites did you look for to research them? I found a bit on their actual website.


Richard Vasconi March 19, 2013 at 4:52 AM

I have an old water filter I need to replace. This would be perfect. Thanks.


Leslie March 19, 2013 at 9:44 AM

Please pick me! Please!! I have well water and a strip mine not to far from my house. My pets won’t drink water from the faucet even if it is filtered with a Brita. It is that bad. It would be really nice not to have to buy distilled water at the store.


agate cameos jewellery March 22, 2013 at 2:42 PM

I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your site. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme? Outstanding work!|

These are actually enormous ideas in about blogging. You have touched some fastidious factors here. Any way keep up wrinting.|


Hochzeitsfotograf München March 23, 2013 at 8:43 AM

My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a number of websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!|


Blaire Shultz March 25, 2013 at 7:40 AM

Great looking Berkey, you are completely correct at the importance of always having a back up for a water supply. You can manage with low food resources but water is an essential for sure. This is an awesome thing you are doing someone will be a happy lucky winner with out a doubt.
