Availability: in stock

Exclusive Warranty
  • Returns of Berkey products are a rare occurrence due to their high customer satisfaction rate, however if you are unsatisfied with your purchase upon receipt, and you would not like a replacement with expenses covered by us, you can return your item(s) within 10 days of item receipt.
  • Filters that have already been in use are not eligible for a return/refund as they cannot be re-sold for health and safety reasons.
  • Prior to a return, please contact BigBerkeyWaterFilters.com so we can provide the proper form and instructions on how to proceed.
  • In the case of a return, the customer is responsible for return shipping fees and there is a 15% restocking fee of the item(s).
  • Additional Return Details Here
  • Our Exclusive BigBerkeyWaterFilters Warranty will replace any of your system’s hardware parts over the life of your Berkey system ownership. This includes the stainless steel chambers/lid, spigots, washers and nuts. This is above and beyond the General Manufacturer’s Warranty.
  • Our exclusive warranty is automatically applied as long as we have your order on record as purchasing through bigberkeywaterfilters.com. Stainless must have been handled with proper care. This guarantee does not cover items that are damaged due to user misuse, abuse, salt water/air, lack of maintenance (routine cleanings), or accidents (dents from falling, etc). Customer is responsible for shipping and processing charges.
  • IMPORTANT: We do not sell on Amazon. Also, please be aware that the manufacturer does not warranty any items purchased on Amazon from unauthorized dealers. For example, Amazon.com itself is NOT an authorized dealer.
  • The Black Berkey purification elements and Berkey Earth Ceramic Filters have a two-year prorated manufacturer’s warranty calculated in six month intervals. The manufacturer's guarantee is prorated similar to the guarantee on tire tread. In other words, if you have used the filters for 8 months, 75% of the guarantee still applies and so you can get a full replacement set for 25% of the normal cost.
  • The Berkey systems themselves and their components (stainless steel, etc) have a 12 month manufacturer’s warranty.

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.

Product Questions

How often do I need to replace filters?
What type stainless steel is this made from? Will a magnet hold to it or drop from it?
Do you need the additional fluoride filters if you increase the number of black filters used?
Hello there:
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
My house is on a well, the water is very hard and also contains nitrates. I have used a commercial sized water softener to help with the hardness but have never found a filter for the nitrates. Does your filter block nitrates?
How do you know when the filters need to be changed?
