  • Black Berkey Primer™

    $31 CAD
    • Handy device makes it easy to prime (and dry out) Black Berkey®
      purification elements
      .
    • Ideal for emergency, travel and backcountry situations where there
      is limited potable water available to prime Black Berkey® elements.
      Shortens the time required to dry out Black Berkey® elements that
      are being taken out of use and prepped for shortage.
    • One end of the Primer screws onto the threaded end of the element. Submerse the element in water. Slowly squeeze
      and release the black bulb until water comes out
      the elbow at the upper end. Water has been sucked into the
      element. It is ready to use.
    • Black Berkey® purification elements should be thoroughly dried out before being
      stored (not used) for prolonged periods. Reversing the Black Berkey Primer™ parts makes it easy to quickly draw most of the water out
      of the element which shortens the drying time needed before
      storage.

      with the stainless steel.
