PRIMING WITH THE TAN BUTTON (washer)

PRIMING WITH THE TAN BUTTON (washer)

View images below of the type of Faucet Aerator style that works best for priming filters.

Here are instructions and images to aid in the priming of Black Berkey Water Filters.

How to properly hold filter when priming. 

This will help prevent water spraying and squirting all over the place.  It is helpful to add the wingnut while priming so you can achieve a good grip resulting in a compression type connection with the faucet. (Dont apply to much pressure which might break wingnut or damage threads on filter)

    • Attach wingnut and then place Priming Button (tan washer) on to the stem of the Black Berkey filter as shown in the image above and below. Place fingers under the wingnut so you can achieve a good grip.
    • Place thumb over top of faucet so you can compress tan washer to tap
    • turn on tap with low pressure and saturate filter. After a few seconds your filter will be primed.
