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.

    Very neccessary, practical, and high quality. Sparkles on the outside as much as the water on the inside!

    Posted by Angela McMullen on 30th Aug 2012

    As a family that is working hard on being better prepared, the Berkey Crown fits the bill. It is beautiful, practical and works perfectly. We use this daily for our water to drink, make ice, coffee, and tea. It is prominently placed on it own table and it used every day and will fit the bill if we are ever forced to filter large volumes of drinking water for ourselves and others. Well worth the price. Our best prep purchase to date.

    I was hesitant to spend the money for this purification system but it really exceeds my expectations. The quality and finish of the product is fabulous and it is a welcome addition to our kitchen area. I received exceptional customer service, the instructions were highlighted for ease of use, and there was a handwritten note of thanks included! It doesn't get any better than this! Thanks again, GetBerkey!
