Big Berkey Using ProOne™G2.0 Water & Fluoride filters – 7 inch
As Propur’s ProOne™G2.0 Water & Fluoride filter elements can be used in most of the Berkey systems since they are gravity based, we have put together a Royal Berkey option for you. These filters offer a non-alumina based fluoride filter media while also adjusting the pH of the water to a more alkaline 9.5.
As they do have a slower flow-rate, we recommend using your unit for a smaller household than one would usually for a Royal size so that enough water is available for cooking and drinking during the day until system is refilled overnight. (Up to 4 people).
And remember, while these do have that slower flow rate, you are getting great taste and water that is alkalised in addition to being well filtered.

Filter Capacity: 2,400 gallons per pair – replace about every 12 months.
IMPORTANT – USAGE & FlOW RATE
To condition (prime), install in system and run through and pour out water about 3 times BEFORE drinking – you should be able to drink water on the 4th run.
Initial flow rate while conditioning filters can be very slow: it can take UP TO 2 to 3 days to do all 4 runs as each run through can take UP TO around 8 to 10 hours. We recommend running the water through overnight while sleeping and then emptying and filling up again the next morning, etc. Empty the first 3 runs.
For regular usage – flow rate: It can still take 2 to 4 hours to filter through on a regular basis for the first few weeks (though flow rate may decrease to 1 hour to 30 minutes after a few days to weeks). We recommend using a larger unit for your household size and filling it up overnight or if you need to fill up during the day, do it when you will be out for a few hours.
- Stainless steel unit constructed of highly polished 304 stainless steel
- Includes food grade nylon spigot (tap); stainless ones available as an extra
Two filters which are an All-in-one – water filter AND fluoride Filter element
- Alkalising: increases pH up to 9.5
- Improves water taste
- Up to 54% more surface area for better filtration performance compared to conventional 2” x 9” filter elements
- Removes hydrofluorosilicic acid (the latest form of fluoride not covered by most other fluoride filter brands)
- While these filters do have a very slow flow-rate and a shorter life compared to other filters like the Black Berkey filters, they remove a larger variety of contaminants including fluoride, while also alkalising and the filtered water has a really great taste.
- Made in England
