Blemished Big Berkey​ Systems: Same Great Performance at Special Price($58 Off)

The versatile Big Berkey System is ideal for small to medium-sized families and for during travel, outdoor activities, or unexpected emergencies.


Blemished systems enable you to enjoy economic savings while being assured that the performance of your Berkey​ system has by no means been compromised. Cosmetically blemished Berkey​ systems come with the same warrantied Black Berkey​ Purification Elements that have made Berkey​ Water Filter the leader in the industry.

Blemished Berkey​ systems are identified by a distinctive “B” stamped on the upper and lower stainless steel chambers, which indicates that the chambers ARE NOT warrantied against cosmetic defects.

However, the ​Black Berkey​ Purification Elements carry the standard 2-year pro-rated limited warranty,​ which provides you with the same performance and longevity that you would experience with any of our non-blemished Berkey​ systems.
