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

  • 2. Install the filter in the preferred vertical position with the purge outlet pointing down and also where it can be easily accessed for cleaning and maintenance.
  • 3. Install the filter on the discharge side of the pump to allow the filter to be cleaned by purging through the flush valve.
  • 4. Refer to arrows on the filter body for correct water flow direction.
  • 5. Adhere to all local and state codes, laws and regulations.
  • 6. Use approved solvent cement for gluing PVC connections. Follow gluing instructions on glue container. It is recommended that the CLEAR COVER BE REMOVED FROM THE PVC BODY PRIOR TO THE GLUING PROCESS. Any excess glue that comes in contact with the clear cover will damage it.
  • Rusco Water Filter Screen Change Frequency:
  • The Rusco filter screens should be cleaned every few months. No tools are required for cleaning.
  • The filter screen should be replaced every 6-12 months depending on your water usage and water quality.
  • Rusco Water Filter Screen Cleaning Instructions:
  • 1. The primary method of cleaning the Rusco filter is purging separated solids through the flush valve while the filter is under system pressure. The purging process can be done manually with the flush valve or automated with our optional Automatic Flush Valve.
  • 2. The filter element may need to be removed and cleaned. To remove the filter element, turn off the water supply, drain water pressure, unscrew the clear cover and remove the filter element. Wash off collected sediment by spraying with water. Remove fine particles wedged in the screen with a soft brush. Apply silicone grease to o-rings if needed and reassemble. HAND TIGHTEN ONLY.
