Blemished Royal Berkey​ Systems: Same Great Performance at Special Price($61 Off)


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.

Good insurance

We live in the country and have our own water well. But if we lose electricity, the water will stop. I have peace of mind to know that if necessary we can dip water out of our pond and have good drinking water.

Great product

I’ve always wanted a Berkey and finally bit the bullet and bought one. So far I’m very pleased. I’m slightly upset at how the system doesn’t rid of fluoride very much and that was a main reason I bought the system. I’m considering the fluoride filters in the near future.

Great product!

I am very happy with my Royal Berkey. My wife was a bit pissed I spent $450 on a water filter (I also bought 2 additional filter elements) but she’ll get over it! We have a few friends with Berkeys and I’ve always really liked the quality and simplicity of them. We are about to remodel the kitchen and you can bet I’ll make a special spot for it!
