The corona crisis has created unprecedented demand for Berkey systems and subsequently a shortage has arisen. The manufacturer is now working overtime to restore Berkey supply and we expect to have new Berkey stock within the forseeable future. Please check the site from time to time to see when the "out of stock" notices have been removed or send us an email specifying the Berkey model you want and we will notify you when it is back in stock. In the meantime the Black Berkey filters and PF-2 filters are available. Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to serving you in the near future.
Place the large sealing washer(10) over the threaded portion of the element(5).
Place the element(5) into the hole in the base of the upper chamber(4).
Secure element in the chamber base by screwing on the wing nut(11) onto the threaded mount. Repeat # D, E and F until all elements have been installed.
For systems having more element holes than purification elements, (expandable systems) secure blocking plugs into empty holes with one washer on the inside and one on the outside.
Place one rubber washer(8) onto the threaded portion of the outlet spigot(7).
Insert thread of spigot(7) through hole in the side of the lower chamber(6). Place the second small washer(8) over the thread within the chamber and secure in place with the nut(9). Tighten securely by hand only. We have made available a diagram of spigot installation and detailed instructions for sightglass spigot installation.
Place the upper chamber(4) onto the lower chamber(6) and place lid(2) in position.
Don't forget to perform the red food coloring test to insure that your Black Berkey water filters are properly installed and functioning as they should. This test can be performed at any time during the lifetime of the Black Berkey water filters.
