Blemished Royal Berkey​ Systems: Same Great Performance at Special Price


The versatile Royal Berkey System is ideal for use at home with medium-sized families, travel, outdoor activities, or 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.

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

Royal Berkey water filter

As a person living in Arizona we have some of the worst water in the country. The Berkey removes the bad taste and make it so much healthier for our family and removes the over waist of water bottles we have had in the past. For us it’s a 10

Tasty water and clean

Easy to setup, not much assembly except putting filters, which is quick. Water filter rate is good and tastes really good. With fluoride filters added, rate slows down a bit but not bad at all for the benefit. This amount of water is good for a small family easily. Does not require too much of refilling.
