The Royal Berkey Water Filter

Our Royal Berkey is another top seller due to the fact that it's a perfect size for 2-6 people. Similar to our other systems, it's an ideal system for use at home with families, travel, outdoor activities or during unexpected emergencies.

Constructed of highly polished 304 stainless steel, the Royal Berkey comes complete with 2 Black Berkey purification elements (expandable to 4), 2 chambers, lid, a spigot, rubber gasket base, and 2 black rubber blocking plugs. Up to 4 PF-2 Fluoride and Arsenic filters can be installed into the lower chamber.

More About The Royal Berkey

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

Product Questions

Just got my Royal Berkey with 2 filters. Decided I wanted a 4 filter system to speed it up. Are they a particular size or anything? Thanks.
Are these products plastic free?
How often on average does machine need to have filters changed?
Does the royal filter come with any filter included? Or they are sold separate?
When do you think it will be back in stock?
There is a Black Colored Royal Berkey and a Silver Colored one shown in the picture. How can I order the Black one?
Does this system remove chlorine and chloramine?

My family is trying to understand the total cost for the Royal system. I understand the price for the system is $284, but how much beyond that would we end up spending on changing filters?
I'm interested in purchasing a filter for my family of 6 (no pets), as well as the fluoride filters. In the Berkey Royal, do you recommend using 2 or 4 filters? Does it come with 2? Also, for a family of 6 do you recommend the Royal, or the next size up? Finally, the Berkey Royal is out of stock according to the website, when will you be receiving more in stock? Thank you.
Question 1: Is the Royal the biggest system you have?
Question 2: I was told that we can actually clean the filters ourselves? Is this true? I saw a response saying they last 6,000 gallons, then can we clean or prep them for longer use?
Question 3: If electricity went out and no water supply, Can I use pond water and have it filtered? would we need to have a special filter? If so which one?

I have a royal berkey, I need to know how often I should replace the filters and I've noticed the well seems to have run dry and yet when I open it there is still a lot of water left in the well, so I fill it to the top and then it seems to siphon water, so I'm thinking i need to change the filters. What are your thoughts?
Do any of your units remove aluminum ?
Thank you !
Is there a way to choose black or stainless steel on the royal berkey?
Will the stainless steel rust over a period of time? I got another brand and the top compartment and lid started to rust after a few months.
do your filters remove copper....if so which one
