Product Questions

Product Questions

The pre-shipment email I received did not provide instructions for priming the Earth ceramic filters. I can't find instructions for this on your site. Do these filters need to be primed and, if so, where can I find the instructions before my product arrives?
I purchased the Big Berkey a couple of years ago and want to get two more filters for it, will the Earth ceramic filters work?
Does this new ceramic, filter all of the same bacteria, viruses, etc...... as the black filters. You have not added this info to your site, that I can find.
I have a well that is slightly salty, some minerals. No lead or anything nasty when tested by the county. Would I use the Earth Ceramic filter if I purchase a system?
Does the ceramic filter come with a reusable primer washer?
