Crown Berkey is a gravity fed, countertop water filter system. It comes standard with two Black Berkey filters but has a capacity of eight filters. It provides great tasting water for everyday use and it requires no electricity or water pressure, making it an essential part of emergency preparation.
The Crown Berkey system removes viruses, pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites and extracts harmful chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, VOCs, organic solvents, radon 222 and trihalomethanes. It also reduces rust, silt, sediment, foul taste and odors and unhealthy minerals such as lead and mercury. This system is so powerful it can remove red food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Virtually no other system can duplicate this performance.
Berkey Filter technology has been through vigorous research and testing, and exceeds ANSI NSF Standard 42, 53, and 248. Berkey Filters maintain bacteriostasis and prevent mitosis or colonization of microbes within the filter, so you do not have to worry about mold or mildew.
Configured with two Black Berkey purification elements the system will last for up to 6,000 gallons or more about 3 years for a large family. it will purify up to 6.5 gallons per hour. This system can be expanded to use eight purification elements and is capable of purify up to 26 gallons per hour.
Constructed of highly polished 304 stainless steel, Crown Berkey water filters come with two purification elements and utilize the latest technological advances. The Crown Berkey filter system has a storage capacity of 1.5 gallons and when in use it stands 18 inch height with a diameter of 7.5 inches.
