How to clean the Black Berkey Filters Purification Elements
First, empty and disassemble the Black Berkey Filters Purification Elements from the Berkey system.
Use a cleaning pad similar to a Scotch Brite Pad or a stiff toothbrush and gently scrub the outside of the Black Berkey Filters under cool running water.
Re-prime the filters. If you’re not familiar with this process please watch this YouTube video with step by step instructions, here.
Reassemble the Black Berkey Filters into the Berkey system.
Lastly, fill your Berkey system and perform a red dye test as described in your instructions to ensure the Black Berkey Filters Purification Elements are effective.
If you are currently using a water softening system, we highly recommend that you obtain pre-softened water directly from the source rather than run softened water through your Black Berkey Elements.
