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.

Well made and arrived in perfect condition. We were going to save it for emergencies but instead we use it for every day drinking water.

Royal Berkey gravity purifier

So far, no complaints. Definitely one of the easiest and best means to purify water. Entire household (family of 6) consuming more water since the purchase of the Royal Berkey.

Love My Berkey

I got sick of buying bottled water as we have a stinky well at home. This filter system is going to save us money and it tastes great and no smell! I bought some glass bottles so the kids can still have their bottled water. I highly recommend Berkey.

Royal Excellence !

So glad we bought the larger ROYAL size as the two of us are big water users ! Excellent quality and we are eager to add fluoride filters when available !

Slow filters?

I love the taste of the water but the first two filters that came with it were SLOW, like 2 gallons in over 24 hours. I did everything, cleaned redid everything according to directions. I ordered two more thinking maybe I had to put 4 in. I put one more in and boom, 3 gallons in a matter of hours, not days. I think when I clean it this week, I am just going to leave one of the old, i would just leave the new to see how long but I only have 2 plugs.
🤷‍♀️ Water tastes great but I was very frustrated at how long. So, I don’t know if my first two were bad.

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
