Product Description

Blemished Berkey​® Systems: Same Great Performance, Special Price!

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​® by NMCL 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.

  1. "Mom, this water tastes SO good!"

    Posted by on

    After reading that Tucson, Az. water is some of the worst in the U.S., I researched water filters and ordered the Royal Berkey for my son, along with a few extra filters and the shower massage attachment. (I ordered a blemished/clearance item; my son said he can't find the blemish - looks brand new!) He and his roommates called to tell me how the water from the system is SOOO good, it was just amazing! They couldn't believe the taste of water could be so drastically different. Got the larger unit so they could also easily cook with it. My son said it's working out great....they love it! Roommates are sharing the cost of the replacement filters since all want to drink from it. Up next: one for Mom and Dad!

  2. Wish I had got it sooner!

    Well made, easy to set up and use. Works great, water tastes very good.
    We're on a well in an area that doesn't have very good tasting water. We have a chlorine filter at the water entry point and it helps, but not enough, so we've bought bottled water for a long time. The first time we used the filter we could taste the difference the first glass of water and in the first pot of coffee. The Berkey will pay for itself and save us time and money now that we don't have to go buy bottled water. We also have the peace of mind that we don't need to rely on someone else and can filter even river water if we needed to.

  3. great customer service

    Posted by on

    I purchased a blemished model. I was looking more for functionality and not worried about a few scratches. The lower container that I received had a extremely small hairline crack near the base resulting in a very small but steady drip. It was extremely difficult to find so it would be easily missed in the manufacturing process. Customer service did a fantastic job and immediately sent a replacement canister with no questions or hassles. Nice to see great customer service. I will be ordering more products and happy to refer others based on my recent experience.
