    Should I prime my system now or wait for a disaster, to prime it? Will it hurt test the filter now? Is there a shelf life on a primed filter? Any help would be really appreciated.:)

    I live in California and just ordered a big berkey water filter, then recieve an email stating that big berkeys cannot be shipped to california due to a lead free law. how freakin ridiculous is that. It makes me question what california is putting in the water.
