The versatile Crown Berkey system is the ideal system for use with medium to large groups, at home, churches, hospitals orphanages, outdoor activities or during unexpected emergencies.

This powerful system purifies both treated water and untreated raw water from such sources as remote lakes, streams, stagnant ponds and water supplies in foreign countries, where regulations may be substandard at best. Perfect for outdoor activities and a must in hostile environments where electricity, water pressure or treated water may not be available.

The Crown Berkey system removes pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites entirely and extracts harmful chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, VOCs, organic solvents, radon 222 and trihalomethanes. It also reduces nitrates, nitrites and unhealthy minerals such as lead and mercury. This system is so powerful it can remove food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Virtually no other system can duplicate this performance.

Constructed of highly polished 304 stainless steel, the system comes complete with two Black Berkey purification elements and utilizes the latest technological advances. This system has a storage capacity of about 6 gallons (22.7 liters) and when in use it stands 30" in height with a diameter of 11". The upper chamber nests within the lower chamber for transport and stands only 20" in height.

Configured with two Black Berkey purification elements the system will purify up to 6.5 Gallons (24.6 liters) per hour. This system can be expanded to use up to eight purification elements and is capable of purifying up to 26 Gallons (98.4 liters) per hour.

*Lifetime warranty applies to stainless steel tanks, lid, lid knob, plugs, and plastic spigot. Lifetime warranty does not cover any filters nor any accidental damage. Black Berkey filters have a 2 year pro-rated warranty.

Black Berkey Purification Elements

Black Berkey Purification Elements are more powerful than any other gravity filter element currently available. In fact, we tested the Black Berkey purification elements with more than 10,000 times the concentration of pathogens per liter than is required by standard test protocol. This concentration of pathogens is so great that the post filtered water should be expected to contain 100,000 or more pathogens per liter (99.99% reduction - the requirement for pathogenic removal). Incredibly the purification elements removed 100%. Absolutely no pathogens were cultured from the effluent or were able to be detected, even under an electron microscope, setting a new standard in water purification.

Black Berkey purification elements are so powerful, they can remove food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Virtually no other filtration element can duplicate this performance.

No need for expensive disposable filters. Black Berkey purification elements are re-cleanable. When the flow rate decreases simply brush the Black Berkey purification elements with a ScotchBrite pad under running water, reinstall and your system is again ready to purify water. Each durable and efficient purification element will last for up to 3,000 gallons (6,000 gallons per set of two) and provide years of efficient water purification. What's more, the unique Black Berkey purification elements are self-sterilizing.

The powerful Black Berkey purification elements also remove or reduce pathogenic cysts, parasites, harmful or unwanted chemicals such as herbicides and pesticides, VOCs, detergents, organic solvents, trihalomethanes, cloudiness, silt, sediment, nitrates, nitrites, heavy metals, foul tastes and odors, yet they leave in the healthful and beneficial minerals that your body needs.

    Crown Berkey

    Posted by Heather on 12th Mar 2021

    I wasn't sure if I would like this huge filter in my kitchen, but now I can't imagine my home without it. I am actually considering getting a second, smaller one, for us to use by our coffee bar and also bring it with us when we travel. It goes without saying that the water tastes great. I'm a huge fan, love it.

    Reminds me of the water on my grand dads farm in the hills of Tn. Only better. Easy to clean and maintain. Bullet proof system that will last for years

    Peace of mind drinking from our Berkey

    Posted by Sabrina on 20th Jun 2019

    When living in areas where there is potential for water contamination, I am able to have peace in my heart and mind about the safety of my family's drinking water because of our Berkey filter. We opted for the larger, 6 gallon Crown Berkey because we drink a lot of water and use the filtered water for cooking. Even living in the U.S., we have to be aware of what's in our tap water. In our current city, the tap water has an unpleasant smell, but after it's filtered the smell is completely eliminated. Our family also much prefers using our Berkey filter over buying water bottles and jugs. It's better for the environment and better for our bodies and, like others have said, it tastes great. Using the water from our Berkey has even greatly improved the taste of our morning coffee. We will never go back to tap or bottled as long as we can help it.

    Such a better alternative to buying bottled water. Better for the environment and better tasting. Well worth the investment.

    as advertised

    Posted by Unknown on 17th Feb 2017

    Purchased purely for health reasons. Watched a ton of youtube vids and read a ton of reviews beforehand. Went ahead and ordered it. Glad i did. Family of 6, more than adequate for us taste great. Spigot is a little flimsy but not enough to take away from the end result.

    Best system ever!

    Posted by B.J. on 25th May 2016

    With a child that has stage 2 cancer (brain tumor) we diligently went on a path of clean water organic food, no beef, or pork, well you get the idea, I just didn't realize just how good the water tasted until I tasted this water coming out of my berkey. I bought the 6 gal. because there is 4 of us, and I knew I'd also be cooking with the water coming out. I must say besides the pricing, I truly love this system. Thank you Berkey. If there is any coupons coming up on filter let me know.

    2nd Crown. To replace filter pitcher that wife purchased.

    Posted by Thirsty Dad on 6th Mar 2015

    We have one at our house in NY. Wife said I was crazy when I got it. We built a house in TX w/ a well she told me that she did not want to get another so she got a big name filter pitcher that fits in fridge. After having trouble with the well that clouded/muddied up our well/tap water. She told me to buy another. First thing she will be doing is putting that pitcher in the garbage where it belongs.

    Berkey Crown Rules!

    Posted by Thirsty Dad on 10th Sep 2014

    It is big enough that even with seven kids in the house sometimes I get a glass of water before refilling it. Using it every day when I make the coffee. I can't wait to do the red food coloring test.
