The Black Berkey PrimerTM is a hand-powered priming pump that makes it possible to prime Black BerkeyTM Elements easily offline, without the need for faucets or hose connections. Priming the Black BerkeyTM Elements saturates the filters with water prior to their use, allowing for clean water production anywhere.
With a Black BerkeyTM Element properly immersed in water & attached to it, the Black Berkey PrimerTM creates a simple pressure gradient which draws water into the center of each Black BerkeyTM Element. Once the Black BerkeyTM Element is completely saturated with water, it passes through the Black Berkey PrimerTM and squirts out of the opposite end.
The Black Berkey PrimerTM also purges (or back-flushes) the Black BerkeyTM Elements using air instead of water to clean the proprietary pores of the compressed carbon filter wall. Purging the Black BerkeyTM Elements accomplishes two 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 PrimerTM instead.
Every owner of a Berkey® Water System which uses Black BerkeyTM Elements will find it easier to prime and purge the filters, wherever the Berkey® is used. The Black Berkey PrimerTM is the final piece in making your Berkey® Water System your off-grid solution for clean drinking water and for everyday use. In addition, if you have a small sink or short faucet, the Black Berkey PrimerTM makes it easy to prime your Black BerkeyTM Elements.
Black Berkey PrimerTM can be cleaned with a proper dilution of natural cleaning products, or mild soap and warm water. Components should be thoroughly rinsed & allowed to air dry prior to storage in a cool, dark, & dry place. Keep out of exposure from direct sunlight as UV light will breakdown the product. Do not microwave the Black Berkey PrimerTM .
