Thank you that we got our Berkey in time. We don't know if you have heard what is going on here in Australia, but we don't have to worry about our drinking water. We are so safe.
Kind regards, Ralph S

Description
 
The versatile Big Berkey® system is the ideal system for use at home with small or medium sized families, travel, outdoor activities or during unexpected emergencies. This powerful system filters 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. The Big Berkey® system removes pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites and reduces harmful chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, and VOCs without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Constructed of highly polished 304 stainless steel, the system comes complete with four 9" ceramic elements. This system has a storage capacity of about 2.1 gallons (8.5 liters) and when in use it stands 19.25" in height with a diameter of 8.5". The upper chamber nests within the lower chamber for transport and stands only 13" in height. The system will filter about 25 to 30 Gallons (95-115 liters) per day*.

FILTER ASSEMBLY

Assembles in less than 10 minutes and with no tools!

Filter Assembly Diagram
  1. Remove the filter elements and parts from their protective packaging, checking each item against the diagram. Note: The number of filter elements supplied will depend on the type of unit ordered:
    • Standard Berkey: 4 Filter Elements
    • Big Berkey: 4 Filter Elements
    • Imperial Berkey: 6 Filter Elements
    • Crown Berkey: 8 Filter Elements
  2. Extreme cleanliness is important. Wash hands before proceeding. Assure that contamination of the components does not take place during assembly.
  3. Fit the knob (1) onto the lid (2) by inserting the screw (3) up through the hole in the lid and screwing on the knob. Hand tighten only.
  4. Place the large sealing washer (10) over the threaded part of the filter element (5).
  5. Place the element (5) into the hole in the base of the upper chamber (4).
  6. Secure element in the chamber base by screwing on the wing nut (11) onto the threaded mount. Repeat #5 & #6 until all filter elements have been installed. Hand tighten only.
  7. Place one small washer (8) onto the threaded part of the outlet spigot (7).
  8. Insert thread of spigot (7) through hole in the side of the lower chamber (6). Place the second small washer (8) over the thread within the chamber and secure in place with the nut (9). Tighten securely by hand only.
  9. Put the upper chamber (4) on top of the lower chamber (6) and place lid (2) in position.

OPERATION INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Ensure that the spigot (7) is in the "OFF" position.
  2. CONDITION FILTERS:
    Wipe the ceramic dust from the outer surfaces of the filter elements with a damp cloth. Fill upper chamber (4) fully with cold or room temperature water and cover with lid (2). Allow all water to gravity filter into lower chamber. Open the spigot to allow all water to run to waste. Allow filters to stand unused overnight. Refill upper chamber again with water and open spigot for two minutes and allow water to run to waste.
  3. The British Berkefeld ® water filter is now ready to use.

Note: If the filters are left to stand for more than 3 days, then it is recommended that water be run to waste for 1 minute before using. When installing filter elements for the first time or replacing a used element with a new one, it is important to condition the new filters using the above procedure.
