If you're the proud owner of a Berkey water filtration system, then you know that it's important to keep it clean and well-maintained during everyday use. In this comprehensive guide, we'll walk you through the process of taking your Berkey apart and washing each individual component. We'll also show you how to scrub the black berkey® purification elements, top chamber and lower chamber and put everything back together again. So if your Berkey is looking a little bit dirty, don't worry - we've got you covered!

Just give us a call (1-844-945-3625), chat in directly on our website or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your Berkey® system is built to last a lifetime and provide you and your family with high quality clean drinking water for the rest of your lives. Because water deposits, heavy metals and contaminants can have an impact on your water purification and your water taste, it's important to clean it on a regular basis. The recommended cleaning time for your Berkey is every 4-6 weeks of home use, and for the black berkey® elements, it's recommended to clean them every 6 months. The container is constructed of high-quality stainless steel that's easy to clean with just a few simple steps.
Cleaning the Black Berkey Filters routinely extends the life span, and will maintain good flow rates, high water quality, delicious clean water and peace of mind. The filters used in the system are not single-use disposable which is a huge benefit in sustainability. Instead of disposing of a dirty filter, Berkey filters can be cleaned and continuously used. The ability to clean and keep using your Black Berkey Filters is a huge factor of what sets it apart from our competition. Cleaning your filter elements is needed when the flow rate decreases and the output slows. This point will vary with the amount of contaminants you are removing. For household use, it will be around every six months, and for field use weekly, possibly daily if the conditions are harsh. These instructions are the same whether you have a big berkey water filter, a travel berkey, a crown berkey, imperial berkey etc. No matter the different sizes, the cleaning instructions are as follows:
