About Big Berkey Water Filters

Top 3 ways a Berkey Water Filter will benefit your life

Drink To Your Health

Berkey water filter systems are far superior to other filtration systems because they remove harmful pathogenic bacteria, cysts, parasites, and unhealthy chemical contaminants such as Chlorine to levels higher than 99.99%, while at the same time leaving in the essential minerals your body needs.
Did you know that over 60% of US municipal water is fluoridated? Berkey water filter systems also distinguish themselves from many other filtration systems by having the capabilities to significantly reduce fluoride and arsenic via the "PF" line of filters.

Affordability

Each durable Black Berkey Water filter will last up to 3000 gallons (6000 gallons per set of 2). This is much longer than the majority of water filter solutions on the market.
At 10 gallons per week, this equates to more than 11.5 years of healthy clean drinking water!
Including fluoride and arsenic reduction, 1 gallon of Berkey water costs just 7 cents!.
Stop and think how much money you could save by the simple reduction in bottled water purchases by regularly using water filtered by your Berkey water filter.

Versatility

Berkey Water Filter systems are capable of purifying both treated water (municipal/city water) and untreated raw water from such sources as remote lakes, streams, stagnant ponds, and water supplies in foreign countries.
The micro-pores within the self-sterilizing and re-cleanable Black Berkey water filter purification elements are so small that pathogenic bacteria are simply not able to pass through them.
Due to the fact that the Berkey water filters do not require electricity and are portable, they become a lifesaver during times of flooding, loss of electricity, and other life threatening emergencies.

    • Can Your Drinking Water Get Hacked?

      Cyber attacks are a growing concern, that could potentially affect both commercial and governmental enterprises globally. Now government officials are cautioning water utilities to focus more attention on this rising threat. With more and more water utilities trying to cut down on their operating expenses by opting for fully automated systems, the threat is likely to increase in the years to come, BNA Bloomberg reports. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) together with input from the Dept of Homeland Security (DHS) are busy developing training manuals to help smaller, rural water systems that lack the necessary resources to defend themselves against threat posed by cyber hackers. According to Helen Jackson from the DHS's Office of Cybersecurity and Communications, these threats to water distribution networks can come in various guises. For example, one type of threat is ransomeware — where computer hackers hijack and take control of computer controlled equipment and demand payment of a ransom to give back control of the equipment. Insider threats — where a computer system is compromised by someone who has access to the utility — is another. According to Jackson, a 2015 survey conducted by computer giant IBM revealed that more than 50% of all cyber security incidents in the corporate world involved insider threats. Once hackers gain access to a water utility's computer system, they have the ability to control factors such as chlorine flow rates as well as ratios of other chemical additives added to drinking water during the treatment process. YouTube Video: David Travers, director of water security at the EPA, feels that as water utilities become more automated they are becoming increasingly vulnerable to cyber threats and need to be more vigilant to protect themselves from potential hackers. "As we rely on a fully automated system, I think there's a certain degree of expertise that's lost", said Travers. "Now you have operators who may not know how to run the system" in the event of an outage. Travers urges water utilities to prepare for cyber threats by running hands-on tabletop simulation exercises that would increase the capacity of technicians to handle any such threat. Jackson echoes his sentiments, pointing to industry resources that can help utilities assess their cyber security risk. Water distribution networks have faced cyber security attacks before. More than 10 years ago in 2006, a computer hacker gained access to the computer system at a water filtration plant located near Harrisburg, PA, and attempted to use the computers network to distribute pirated software and emails. Upon investigation the FBI found that the computer in question controlled a vital system of the water plant and had the attack caused it to malfunction, service to consumers would have been disrupted. Then 10 years later, in 2016, hackers gained access to a water treatment plant and were able to manipulate chlorine levels. In this day and age, cyber security is a real threat, and needs to be taken seriously by water utilities. Should the security of your local water utility be breached, do you have a contingency plan to ensure you have access to safe drinking water?

    • Can Your Drinking Water Get Hacked?
    • Safety Standards of Common Herbicide Chemical (glyphosate) Urgently Need to be Reviewed

      Glyphosate — a chemical that is used in many weedkillers and also that the Black Berkey Filters remove — may be detrimental to environmental and public health, and the safety standards regarding its usage are in urgent need of review, a new study suggests. According to the authors of the study, which was recently published online in the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health, the current standards are outdated and urgently need to be reviewed, taking cognizance of new scientific findings to address potential health risks the public may face when exposed to these hazardous chemicals. The European Chemicals Agency recently gave glyphosate the green light, ruling that is was not associated with an increased risk of cancer in humans. This outcome will strongly influence the European Commission's decision on whether or not to allow the use of this chemical once again. Back home in the United States, the use of glyphosate has rapidly increased over the last twenty years, with it currently being the most commonly used weedkiller across the country. Furthermore, global estimates of glyphosate use suggest that in 2014 alone, the amount of glyphosate used equated to around half a kilogram being sprayed on every one hectare of crops grown around the entire world. Glyphosate is used to kill weeds before planting crops and to control their regrowth after crops are planted. It is also applied to help induce the natural drying process of seeds before they are harvested. Chemical residues have been found in various crops, including barley, wheat, soybeans as well as a variety of other food crops. Herbicides can also leach through soils to into groundwater and aquifers or wash into surface waters with runoff, where they can potentially contaminate drinking water sources. However, according to the authors, the scientific evidence used in support of the current US safety standards is based on research that was conducted over thirty years ago, and which was not subjected to the peer review process. Since then new studies have been conducted on glyphosate, with over 1500 studies being published in the last ten years alone. "It is incongruous that safety assessments of the most widely used herbicide on the planet rely largely on fewer than 300 unpublished, non-peer reviewed studies while excluding the vast modern literature on glyphosate effects," the authors point out. Yet, despite its rapid expansion in use, there is currently no method of monitoring glyphosate levels in humans and very few studies have assessed the potential health risks to humans. However, recent studies conducted on animals suggest that low doses of glyphosate may be associated with an increased risk of damage to organs such as the kidney, liver and eyes, as well as the cardiovascular system. There is still some debate as to whether glyphosate can potentially disrupt hormone functioning or whether it poses and increased cancer risk. According to the authors, "weed-killers, which combine glyphosate with other 'so-called inert ingredients,' may be even more potent. But these mixtures are regarded as commercially sensitive by the manufacturers and are therefore not available for public scrutiny." The researchers are calling for: Improved monitoring of glyphosate (and glyphosate metabolite) levels in humans. Applying modern technology and testing methods to risk assessment of glyphosate and other combination herbicides. Research focusing on the health impact of occupation exposure to glyphosate (e.g. Agricultural workers, workers in manufacturing plants, as well as the impact on pregnant women and their infants). An evaluation of commercial combination herbicides that contain glyphosate. "After a review of all evaluations, we conclude that the current safety standards are outdated and may fail to protect public health and the environment," the researchers conclude. The black berkey filters that come standard with all our Berkey water filter systems will remove glysophate to levels that are below lab detectable limits. Journal Reference Vandenberg LN, Blumberg B, Antoniou MN, et al. Is it time to reassess current safety standards for glyphosate-based herbicides? J Epidemiol Community Health.
