How do I fix a slow water flow?

Included with your Black Berkey, elements is a tan priming button and instructions for priming. Please remove your elements from the unit, prime your elements and then install them back in your unit. This should fix the slow flow rate problem. 

Can I use softened water in a Berkey?

  1. We do not recommend using your Berkey with a water softener, as it may prematurely clog the Black Berkey elements and reduce their lifespan. Berkey elements mechanically reduces acidity so that the water cannot hold as many mineral ions in the solution.

Can you speed up the water flow of the system

Yes. If you add two filters to your Berkey, you can filter your water at a rate of 7.5 litres an hour. It will mean that in about an hour and 10 minutes, the entire bottom chamber should be filled. Four is the maximum number of filter that you can have, so keep this in mind when you’re filtering.

I have a pond near me. In a shift situation would this be able to filter the pond water?

Yes, Berkey will filter any water.

Prime your Berkey Filters with the new Prime Rite Tool

how can I tell when filters need to be replaced? Water suddenly doesn't taste as clear.

Try cleaning your filters. There are plenty of videos on youtube on  how to do this .Just use only water.
