Slow Berkey filtration....
« on: September 12, 2011, 07:17:03 PM »

Need some help from all of you,

                   We just changed our Berkey filters (Yes, they were primed). The issue is the very slow rate of filtration, I mean really slow. Has any one else had this problem? If so what did you do to correct it? Thanks in advance.

If you are using the black berkey elements, be sure that you do a full prime or make sure the filters are completely primed.  If the flow rate is less than a couple gallons an hour after re priming, please let us me know.
