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.

Berkey stainless steel chambers are assembled in the USA from US and imported parts. The Black Berkey Purification Elements are made and assembled in the USA.

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.

Judy Frazer (Montgomery, US)
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!

Shows no sign of damage

I'm so glad I purchased this damaged Berkey. There are no signs of damage. Love my Berkey!!!

Great Product

Love my Berkey water filtration system. Easy to set up and use and the water tastes excellent. Worth every penny!

Glenn Rothenhauser (Warren, US)
Good proactive move

While we felt that we did not need the system right now, due to the good water quality in our area, we wanted to be ready for a problem that may pop up.
The system is very good and is used every day and, we feel, is a great value. Even our grandson enjoys filling the water dishes for the pets. The value is well worth the cost and gives us a great piece of mind, should the water system fail us. It is great to be proactive.

Bigger than expected and Perfect for our family of 6

I loved the idea of having one of these to protect my family from the contaminated water we’d be exposed to on a daily basis. I love that it’s portable although we did buy the biggest Berkey there is, we absolutely love it and have been more than satisfied with our purchase. We’ve already recommended the Berkey to all of our friends and family and it’s already been well worth the purchase price as our kids love how refreshing and crisp and clean the water taste is that they keep coming back for more throughout the day. I used to have to make them get water to stay hydrated and now I’ll see my little ones go without being told and refill all day long. I know our family is protected and that gives me peace of mind. Hands down I’d purchase this unit over and over again. Hoping to get a travel Berkey next so we can take it camping with us. You won’t be disappointed!! Best investment in your families health!! Well worth the money!!

Best purchase in a long time!

Thank you Berkey!! My family of 8 is loving our new Berkey! It’s the perfect size for our family. After going through so many different water filter systems, this one has beaten them all! Every time my husband refills his water bottle, he comments on what an amazing purchase this was for our family.

We are a military family, and have lived many places with questionable water sources. The Berkey has removed all concerns I’ve had over the past 20 years of service. The next purchase will be a Berkey for my father in law who just decided to live off the grid.

Thank you Berkey!!!!!
