More About The Imperial Berkey
This system was primarily designed with large families and small groups in mind. With the included Black Berkey filters, 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.
This 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 heavy metals 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.

In the disription said that max. Filters needed is 6 in the upper and 6 in the lower. What does that exactly mean, as it already comes with only 2 filters, does it mean if I purchase the unit with only 2 filters , it would not do its maximum filteration part , or the water will filter faster with more filters added. also the shower head filter does it filter the same as the filters for the drinking Berkey units. Thanks
The more filters you have the faster the filtration and more amount of gallons can be filtered. If you want the maximum flow output, you would need the maximum amount of filters. However, the system will be as effective quality of filtration-wise with just the 2 standard filters. The shower filters do not filter the same as the counter top units. Please review the shower filter page for details of what the shower filters remove.
The black berkeys must be replaced approx every 6000 gallons per set of 2 and the PF-2 filters must be replaced every 1000 gallons per set of 2. You can also perform a red food coloring test on the black berkeys at any time to test if they are still operating according to design specs.
