Quick Start Guide
Good to know
✔ You fill the top tank and the bottom tank starts collecting the filtered water, it's the magic of gravity!
✔ A complete filtration takes about 45 minutes.
✔ Be careful not to put more water in the upper tank than there is room in the lower tank, otherwise....it will overflow!
✔ The water can be stored for up to 3 days.
✔ Partial refilling is possible with a full refill at least every 3 days to avoid drying out the Black Berkey® filters.
