About Big Berkey Water Filters

Top 3 ways a Berkey Water Filter will benefit your life

Drink To Your Health

Read more

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.

    • New Radiation Testing Results for Black Berkey Filters

      After much anticipation, we are happy to announce the release of new radiation testing results for the black berkey filters.  Below, please find a summary of the 3 sets of black berkey radiation tests. Radiation in water, black berkey testing results Gross Alpha Reduction Testing Report <-- Link to 1st Set of Test Results The Gravity Black Berkey Filter reduced the Gross Alpha concentration in the tap water by at least 98.7 %. The EPA limit for Gross Alpha is 15 pCi/L; the Gravity Black Berkey Filter meets the EPA requirements for drinking water. Potential gross alpha contaminants/emitters in water: Americium-241 Mendelevium-258 Neptunium-237 Plutonium-238 and -239 Polonium-210 Protactinium-231 Radium-226 and -228 Thorium-232 Uranium-235 and -238 Gross Beta Reduction Testing Report <-- Link to 2nd Set of Test Results The Gravity Black Berkey Filter reduced the Gross Beta concentration in the tap water by at least 95.3 %. The EPA limit for Gross Beta is 15 pCi/L; the Gravity Black Berkey Filter meets the EPA requirements for drinking water. Potential Gross Beta contaminants/emitters in water: Actinium-227 Californium-251 and -252 Cesium-137 Cobalt-60 Iodine-129 and -131 Lead-210 Nickel-63 Promethium-145 Strontium-90 Technetium-99 Uranium Reduction Test Report <-- Link to 3rd Set of Test Results The Gravity Black Berkey Filter reduced the Uranium concentration in the tap water by at least 97.0 %.

    • Are Well Owners More Environmentally Conscious?

      Water well owners in Kansas tend to be more aware of issues relating to state water policies than citizens whose water is supplied by municipal water networks, a new study has found. This could in turn have implications for environmental policy and groundwater management, says Brock Ternes, a PhD student at the University of Kansas, who conducted the study for his doctoral thesis in sociology. For his study, Ternes conducted a survey interviewing 864 Kansas residents, questioning them about their water supply and water use habits, as well as their awareness to water related issues, including policy. He found that residents that depended on private wells for their water supply were more concerned with issues related to water depletion in the High Plains Aquifer — the underground aquifer that serves as a freshwater reservoir lying beneath a large portion of western Kansas — and tended to be significantly more informed about state water policies and more aware of key water management agencies than those who didn't own wells. "The people who use private wells for water are more likely to hear about water-related policy issues and pay attention to them," said Ternes, who will present his study at the 111th Annual Meeting of the American Sociological Association (ASA) this week. He found, for example, that well owners were more knowledgeable about the proposed Kansas Aqueduct — an $18 billion waterworks project that would involve diverting water from the Missouri River to provide water to water scarce areas of western Kansas. Residents who didn't own wells tended to be less aware of this gigantic water project. Like many other regions that have been affected by recent droughts, rural Kansas has been suffering from water scarcity issues. Water extraction from the High Plains Aquifer, which is the primary source of groundwater for the region, has been excessive to meet irrigation demands of the agricultural sector, and researchers caution that wells in some areas of southwestern Kansas are likely to run dry in the next 25 years if pumping is not curtailed. Ternes' water survey also revealed that well owners considered water conservation a top priority to ensure they would still have water in the future. Ternes refers to the term 'groundwater citizenship' which encourages aquifer stewardship and concerted water conservation efforts to ensure groundwater supplies are not depleted so that there will still be water available in the future. "Most well owners believe securing water is one of the top political challenges facing Kansas, and water policies are more likely to influence their vote in local and state elections than Kansans who don't own wells," said Ternes. "My data suggest that well owners have different political priorities than non-well owners and conserve water with the hopes of extending their supply, which makes them a unique type of citizen." Ternes believes the study could provide valuable information to Kansas water officials and policymakers in looking for potential solutions for preventing the High Plains Aquifer from becoming depleted. If they grasp the significance of engaging with well owners who feel strongly about water conserving water, it can help boost public awareness of water conservation issues generally, bringing these important issues more into the limelight. "Water supply infrastructure is clearly connected to how in-tune people are with their natural resources, which is profoundly important for environmental policymaking and survival in the Anthropocene," Ternes said. Many states are vulnerable to water exploitation, which is exacerbated in times of drought. Yet water resources need to be managed appropriately to ensure water availability in the future. In this modern day and age, with improved technologies that allow us to readily access natural resources such as water, it may seem that water availability is much higher that what it really is, when in fact it is a finite resource that is now more scarce than ever. Reference The paper, "'Groundwater Citizenship' and Water Supply Awareness: Investigating Water-Related Infrastructure, the Kansas Aqueduct, and Well Ownership," will be presented on Monday, Aug. 22, at 8:30 a.m. PDT in Seattle at the American Sociological Association's 111th Annual Meeting.
