Berkey or Propur? Propur or Berkey?

If you're thinking about buying a gravity water filter, there's a good chance you've narrowed your choices down to these two brands. They look similar and they cost about the same, but there are some differences that you'll want to know about. 


This infographic sheds a little light on some of the ways they differ. It compares the Big Berkey and the Propur Big since they're the most popular models and are almost the same size.

Both of them eliminate a whole host of contaminants from drinking water. There are way too many to list in a chart like this, so I've included just a sampling for the sake of comparison. ​

I hope you found this infographic helpful in making your decision.

I own a Berkey myself, but Propur wasn't around when I bought it. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend either of them. They're both good quality filters that will give you clean, safe, and great tasting water.

Ah! the never-ending search for countertop water filters might come to an end. Finally! Thanks for your review.

Thank you for this comparison! I’ve been looking for months and have finally decided to get the propur pitcher to filter the fluoride out of our water. I don’t have space in my kitchen for the big berkey so I’ll start small. Love the lack of chlorine smell and knowing the fluoride is out. Thank you!

    Hi Deb! I’m so glad you found it helpful. The pitcher is a good alternative if you don’t have the space for a countertop filter or don’t want to mess with plumbing. It’s also easy to take with you when you travel.

I will have to check both of these water filters out. It’s sad that we need to filter our drinking & cooking water to the extent we do. Thanks so much for the infographic, I’m pinning it on my home board!
