The Crown Berkey Water Filter System is a crucial part of any family's well-being. The water you bring into the house comes from a variety of sources – the very clean practice of not using any chemicals, pollution, can all affect your well-being. The Berkey system mechanically removes unwanted chemicals, contaminants, and metals from your water using a high-precision diatomaceous earth filter. 

Crown Berkey Water Filter System is the most widely adopted water filter in America. Our Berkey water filters are widely used by people who care about their health, their families, and their environment. The very first stage of Berkey’s filtering process is gravity filtration, which mechanically removes 99% of dissolved solids such as heavy metals, chemicals, and organic compounds from tap water required to make it safe to drink.

With this water filter system, your whole family will enjoy clean, fresh water. This product is ideal for those living in tight areas or wanting to conserve precious resources.

How do I store my Black Berkey® Purification Elements?

If you are going to be leaving the system unattended for 3-4 days or less, remove the elements from the top chamber and drain out any water within them.  Once drained, place them in a sealable bag while the carbon is still damp and force out any air in the bag.  Store the elements in the front of your refrigerator to maintain freshness while not exposing them to the colder temperatures in the back of the fridge.  Store the purifiers this way for no more than two weeks.  Re-prime the elements before reinstalling them in your Berkey® System.

If you will be storing your elements for more than 3-4 days, remove the purifiers and thoroughly dry them.  You can do this by either placing them on a windowsill that’s exposed to sunlight for 1-2 days, or by drying them with the Black Berkey Primer™.  Once they are bone-dry, store the purifiers in a sealable bag at room temperature.  The elements will have an indefinite shelf-life as long as they are stored this way.  Re-prime the elements before reinstalling them in your Berkey® System.

How do I know when my Black Berkey® Purification Elements need to be replaced?

Black Berkey®Purification Elements can last up to 6,000 gallons per pair of elements. You can estimate your usage by calculating how many times you refill your system a week and multiplying that by how many gallons your system holds.

Why aren’t my Black Berkey® Purification Elements letting any water through?

It’s most-likely that the purifiers need to be cleaned or primed properly.  This can be done by scrubbing the elements with a Scotch-Brite pad (or something similar) under running water and then re-priming them.

What is the difference between the different Berkey models? Is it just the size of the unit or is one a better system and filters out more?

The Berkey product line ranges in size from the Go Berkey all the way to the Crown Berkey. The only difference in these different systems is their size. All of them use the same Black Berkey Purification Elements technology and all of them filter water the exact same way.

If the crown Berkey comes with 2 black filters--are the plugs for the other holes included?

YES. Hole Plugs Come with all systems, except the Travel, to fill unused Filter holes. 

I just purchased My crown Berkey and does not drip and it pours into the bottom after filling. Is that normal?

YES. It is completely normal, in fact, your Berkey system is not designed to fully drain from the top chamber once it reaches the bottom plastic base of the Black Berkey® Elements. It really is all about “head pressure.”
