Why Did Berkey Make the Royal Model?
The Royal Berkey is a step up in size from the Big Berkey. After years of research and customer feedback, we realized that some people who were using Berkey water filter systems were not always completely satisfied with the systems’ output.
At the time, we offered customers who needed to shop for water filter solutions only two models online: the Big Berkey and the Travel Berkey. The customers using these units gave us useful feedback: They said that while they had normal-sized families, their water consumption demands were. Due to their unique lifestyles, customers in this group needed to buy a Berkey filter with a larger capacity.
We listened to our customers who wanted a larger model and found that this group not only used the water from their filter for drinking but also used it for things like cooking, pets, plants, and many other various demands. Many times, this group of our customers led active lifestyles in which they consumed more water than normal, lived in warmer southern climates or drank a lot of prepared drinks like tea or coffee. In our normal fashion, we listened to the demands of our customers and introduced another size of Berkey model into our growing family of products. Ideally suited for the demands of larger families and people leading active, high-water-use lifestyles.
