The Black Berkey Primer™ is a hand-powered priming pump that makes it possible to prime Black Berkey® Elements easily offline, without the need for faucets or hose connections. Priming the Black Berkey® Elements saturates the filters with water prior to use, allowing for clean water production anywhere.
The Black Berkey Primer™ also purges (or back-flushes) the Black Berkey® Elements using air instead of water to clean the proprietary pores of the compressed filter wall. Purging the Black Berkey® Elements accomplishes three tasks: (1) it clears the pores of debris that has accumulated with use, (2) reduces the amount of time & effort needed to dry the filters prior to storing them. In addition, those who may be having difficulty priming their elements in a small sink, can use the Black Berkey Primer™ instead.
The Black Berkey Primer™ is specifically designed for use with the Black Berkey® Elements. For a product description or to place an order please, click here.
