Blemished Crown Berkey​ Systems: Same Great Performance at Special Price($72 Off)

The Crown Berkey System is our largest model and is ideal for large groups at home, churches, hospitals, outdoor activities, and during 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.

Superb product

Received the Crown Berkey in a timely manner. Ordered a blemished item, but can't find anything wrong with it. Product is superb.

Berkey is the best

We got our first Berkey several years ago, and we love it. We recently upgraded to the Crown, because our cats and dog also drink Berkey water, and I was having to refill the smaller model at least once a day. We use 2 black filters and 2 fluoride filters.

Me likey my Berkey.

Critical Investment/Great Product

I've wanted a Berkey for a long time and finally bit the bullet and purchased a blemished 6 gallon model. The blemishes are so minor they are almost imperceptible.. Even if they were significant, the benefits of owning the Berkey far outweigh any perceptible flaw. The water filtered through the Berkey is amazing. It tastes clean and is perfectly clear. After using the Berkey for just over a month, I now can taste the plastic in bottled water and it is very unappetizing. I couldn't be happier with my purchase and I like the secure feeling of always having access to clean, fresh water, and not having to depend upon the city to provide it. This unit came with two of the black filters and I purchased two more. My only problem was one of the filter's threads were stripped so it really isn't usable since it cannot be tightened. The 6 gallon Berkey will hold up to 8 filters. I hope to work my way up to all 8 filters.

Crown Royal

Works perfectly but arrived with a dent on the side of it even though I had bought a new one that was unblemished. The instructions for putting it together would be a lot nicer if they came with pictures also because I’m not a fan of the lengthy dumbed down videos. Eventually convinced my mother to get one and continue to tell everyone that comes over that they need one.
