Product Description

Blemished Berkey​® Systems: Same Great Performance, Special Price!  

Blemished systems enable you to enjoy economic savings while being assured that the performance of your Berkey​® system has by no means been compromised. Cosmetically blemished Berkey​® systems come with the same warrantied Black Berkey​® Purification Elements that have made Berkey​® by NMCL the leader in the industry.

Blemished Berkey​® systems are identified by a distinctive “B” stamped on the upper and lower stainless steel chambers, which indicates that the chambers ARE NOT warrantied against cosmetic defects. However, the ​Black Berkey​® Purification Elements carry the standard 2-year pro-rated limited warranty,​ which provides you with the same performance and longevity that you would experience with any of our non-blemished Berkey​® systems.

Great tasting water on a budget!

I decided to purchase a Berkey after years of hauling 5 gallon containers around to the refill stations here in Arizona. If you are familiar with Arizona water, it is awful (a lot of chlorine and hard minerals) so filtered water is a must. However, I found out that the refill stations use reverse osmosis which is an extremely wasteful method of filtering water. I was nervous about spending so much, so I decided to save some cash by purchasing the factory blemished one. Honestly, you would never be able to tell it's a factory blemished unit. There is only a super minor scratch on the very back of the upper chamber. Seriously, this has done the job! The water no longer tastes/smells like chlorine! The travel size is perfect for a two person (plus three pets) household. It's a beautiful object too. I have it setting on an overturned camping pot at the moment, but it would be fine setting at the edge of the counter. The only step of assembly that I had trouble with was getting the spigot tight enough. I found the easiest way is to hold onto the nut, grasp and turn the outside of the spigot as tight as possible. This gives you more leverage. I'm sure you could use a pair of wrenches, but I didn't want to damage it since it's just plastic. I'll be upgrading to a stainless steel spigot in the future. It costs $0.35 for us to purchase a gallon of water at the refill station. The Travel Berkey will filter 6,000 gallons before you need to replace the filters. My city charges about $7 per 1 thousand gallons ($42 for 6k gal). If you add in the cost of the filters ($120 at Game Plan Experts), it will cost me about $0.027 per gallon. So it's not only much better for the environment, but much better for your wallet. Shipping was super quick and the owner of the shop even sent me a personal email letting me know to reach out if I had any questions/concerns with my order. That was an awesome touch that I was not expecting from an internet purchase.

Berkey!

We ordered a 'blemished' big berkey. It arrived quickly and we keep saying it is the best purchase we've made in a long time! The water tastes incredible and I can't even find a blemish on our berkey. Highly recommend, and Game Plan Experts was communicative and responsive for the entire order
