* Cloudy water ? - means manufacturing residues are still present inside the Black Berkey filters. (as is the case with all water filters) Cloudy water means you need additional priming of the filters, run 1-2 liters water through each of the filters or until water becomes clear.
Using kitchen faucet to prime filter is the best way to get a large volume of water through filters. PRIMING WITH THE TAN BUTTON (washer) If you struggle to use kitchen faucet, then use squeeze bottle provided and flush least 3 bottle per filter.
