Guarantee, Shipping and Returns
Do Berkey systems have a guarantee?
Yes, the Black Berkey purification elements have a two-year pro-rated warranty calculated in six month intervals. The guarantee is pro-rated similar to the guarantee on tire tread. In other words, if you have used the filters for six months, 75% of the guarantee still applies and so you can get a replacement set for 25% of the normal cost. The systems themselves and their components have a six-month warranty as stated below.
