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

The compact Travel Berkey System is the perfect system for traveling (fits comfortably in most carry-on or larger suitcases), 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 the US and imported parts. The Black Berkey Purification Elements are made and assembled in the USA.

Amazing Clean Water

I love this system. Water tasting great.

The filter works fine but I spent countless hours trying to pri'me the filters without the proper supplies needed to do so properly or full instructions. (Spent hours watching people fumble through the process on YouTube). Since I didn't buy Berkey from Berkeley directly (lesson learned), I wasn't given a primer and was told that it's possible to prime with the little nubs they give you - this was a huge diservice as we wasted many many hours and so much water trying to make it work. I waabout to ship it back. Finally my brother purchased a primer device for me as a gift - three weeks later, I was up and running. Everyone in my family had the same disappointing experience. So I give the filter 5 stars, but taking 2 back for the lack of consideration for customer by leaving out needed device which likely cost pennires and withholding info. Sometimes a sale is not a sale...

The perfect water filter

Finally, I've found the perfect water filter! I couldn't be happier with my purchase. It's easy to set up and use and you have consistently great tasting water.

My back loves Berkey

No more carrying cases of bottled water, 5 gallon jugs or gallons! Water is clean and tastes great. I travel with it in my camper too! Love it!

There’s nothing better than travel with a berkey the perfect size and I don’t worry about getting sick from the water!
