The Crown Berkey water filter system was developed with versatility in mind. While other filtering systems can be used only in homes, the Crown is suitable for use outdoors, in medical facilities and emergency situations.
The system certainly has some unique features, but its purpose is still the same and that is to purify water. As befits the name, the Crown is the largest purification system Berkey has to offer.

Features of the Crown Berkey Water Purifier
The Crown Berkey system is equipped with a couple of Black Berkey Purification Elements, but you have the option of adding up to 8 elements if necessary.
Built with a capacity of up to 6 gallons (22.7 liters), the system is built from AISI 304 stainless steel, which makes it ideal for use in different environments.
A look inside the unit reveals that the upper chamber is situated inside the lower chamber, a very convenient design and makes transportation easier.
For its huge capacity, the unit is only 30 inches tall so portability won’t be an issue, and going back to the filters, these are installed in the upper chamber for your convenience.
The system includes 1 rubber gasket for base protection, 2 plugs, 1 priming button, a couple of washers, 2 wing nuts, a spigot and a stainless steel lid.

The Gold Standard in Gravity-Fed Water Purification
Berkey® Systems equipped with Black Berkey® Purification Elements remove greater than 99.999% of viruses and greater than 99.9999% of pathogenic bacteria, while also removing or dramatically reducing protozoa, trihalomethanes, inorganic minerals, heavy metals, pharmaceuticals, pesticides, VOCs, petroleum products, perfluorinated chemicals, rust, silt, sediment and even radiologicals.

Feedback on the Crown Berkey Water Filter
The Crown Berkey water purifier has received positive reviews online, both from the customers who purchased the unit and from independent researchers.
Randall Steffens says you should buy the Crown “with confidence” because it will deliver, while Ronald Crawford said in his review that he had absolutely no regrets purchasing the Crown.
A quick look at popular online retail stores will show that the system has earned several five star ratings, testament to its quality, and apart from customer reviews, the Crown has done very well in comparison tests with other water purification products.
Whereas other filters only remove specific types of bacteria, the Crown gets rid of 99.999% of bacteria, viruses and heavy metals present in water.
And as independent tests point out, the system doesn’t eliminate the essential nutrients found in water.
There are a lot of ways you can use the Crown, and what makes it even more practical is it doesn’t require electricity to run.
What this means is in the event of a natural calamity or you’re stationed in a place where there are no sanitary regulations, you can depend on the Crown Berkey.
