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.

Crown Berkey

This was our third Berkey purchase.
We use our travel tank every time we go on a trip. Really is a life saver in hotels with 3 kiddos.
We recently swapped our Royal Berkey for the Crown and are super happy.
Full tank lasts our family of 5 around 3 days before having to be refilled. We use it for everything. Coffee, tee, water bottles, pet water bowls, boiling veggies, etc.
Love our Berkeys!

Very happy, just a small dent. Nothing real noticeable.

5th Berkey addition to our family

Trust this filter system and really enjoy the taste of the water knowing that it is pure. We have every family member using one now!! Our precious doggies drink only filtered water also.

Great Upgrade

We bought the Crown Berkey after having the much smaller Travel model for a year. We found out that we used more of the filtered water than anticipated and needed the big unit.
The Crown Berkey is working well for us and we now have lots of filtered water!

Great deal

Bought the blemished model. Has a dent but almost can’t tell it don’t belong. And if it’s facing the wall you can’t even see it. Works great! Went with the 6 gallon!
