NEW BERKEY WARRANTY SITE OPENS UP
This is the Manufacturer direction on Warranty which was sent to all authorized Berkey Dealers.
In an effort to provide the best quality service to Berkey® consumers everywhere, NMCL requires all Warranty Claim request forms be submitted directly by the purchaser (retail consumer). Authorized Berkey® Dealers are not permitted to submit Warranty Claim request forms on behalf of their customers.** Any form submitted by a dealer on behalf of a customer will be automatically denied.
Why the change?
Our Support Specialists are highly trained to diagnose and resolve even the most elusive problems experienced with Berkey® product. Adding a third party (seller) to the replacement process causes confusion for all persons involved. By allowing us to speak to the customer directly, we get questions answered faster, allowing for a smoother replacement process for the customer. We know how important it is for you to build relationships with your customers. Please feel free to educate your customers about Berkey® products or discuss their recent experiences with the product with them*. However, when it comes to replacing the product per NMCL Limited Warranty, please refer your customers to the Warranty Claim section on www.berkebynmcl.com/support *Support Specialists may require customers to complete various tests or troubleshooting steps. The steps or tests will need to be completed a second time, even if you have asked the customer to perform them already. This is to ensure the customer has performed the steps according to NMCL's standards and for documentation purposes.
QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
is this one a good idea to take to mexico on vacay?
When packed for travel, the Travel Berkey is about 7.5 inches in diameter and 12 inches high. It will take up some space in your luggage but our customers have told us that they take them on vacation and are very happy with it. Hope this helps!
Is there something in the system that keeps up with how much water has gone through the filter, or do you have to keep that on your own? 6,000 gallons is awesome, but a high number to tally up manually.
Hi - because the Berkey gravity fed water filters were originally designed for use in catastrophic events and other emergencies, the system is designed to be totally independent of electricity so there is no counter. We recommend that you simply mark the replacement date in your calendar based on your estimated use. Thank you for shopping BerkeyFiltersUSA and have a great day!
Is it reverse osmosis? Does it filter out chromium?Thanks.
That's a great question! It is a gravity powered water filter - unlike revers osmosis machines, the Berkey filter leaves all the healthy minerals in the water and additionally doesn't need to be plugged in. The Travel Berkey is a small unit that is ideal for an individual, for small spaces (RV for instance) and for travelling.
It has been tested to remove chromium including chromium 3 and the well known chromium 6.
What is the difference between the white ceramic filters and the black charcoal ones?
Hi There - the Ceramic filters are the original gravity fed filters and do a great job with water - they need to be replaced each year and will filter up to 99.5% of most harmful contaminants. The Black BB9 Berkeys are meant to improve on the Ceramic performance. They should be replaced every 4 years although the specs suggest they might be good for much longer. These have been tested to filter up to 99.9% of most harmful contaminants. Hope this helps
How long does it usually take to fill with water when using the additional PF2 Filters along with the Black Filters?
Hi! The PF2 fluoride filters add about 20-30% more time to the filtering. Have a great day!
