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.

    • Consumer Guide to Safe Drinking Water

      The average American tends to take safe drinking water for granted; that is until a new drinking, water crisis such as the Flint lead contamination saga, surfaces, leading everyone to wonder what contaminants might be lurking in the water that flows from their taps. The Flint water crisis was certainly a wake-up call for American consumers, and according to Erik Olson, director of the Natural Resource Defense Council's Health program, when it comes to water safety issues, Flint is not an isolated case. Millions of Americans living in other towns and cities around the country are supplied with water contaminated with lead or other pollutants. The NRDC together with the NGO Clean Water Action have been hard at work trying to enforce the federal Safe Drinking Water Act, serving as a public watchdog during every stage of the process. While these organizations have realized many victories in their fight for clean water, consumers should still be cautious about potential pollutants that may be present in their water supply or distribution network. Lead is Not the Only Issue All water suppliers providing drinking water to consumers in the US must ensure that the water they supply meets drinking water safety standards. If these standards are met, consumers can safely drink the water that flows from their taps. However, violations are widespread, and very often water supplied to consumers contains pollutants that are not regulated by the EPA. A recent NRDC report shows that in 2015, around 77 million US consumers received drinking water from water systems that were in violation of federal protections, and more than 30% of these consumers were dependent on water supplies that failed to meet federal health standards. Furthermore, water suppliers serving millions of other US consumers either didn't conduct adequate water safety tests or failed to warn consumers or report the results of these tests to the health authorities. Considering that many pollutants are not even regulated or monitored, these figures are likely to be an understatement rather than a true reflection of how widespread the problem is. For example, pollutants such as PFOA/PFOS and perchlorate occur in tap water across America, but they are not regulated and therefore are not included in the already staggeringly high figures mentioned above. Children, pregnant women and people with compromised immune systems face a higher health risk when exposed to the following pollutants: • Lead - a heavy metal that can leach into water from lead water pipes, fixtures and fittings, particularly when corrosive water is moving through the system, can cause behavioral and neurological problems in children and also pose a health risk to adults. "It's a more common problem in cities with older water systems," explains Kristi Pullen Fedinick a scientist with NRDC Health program, "but what a lot of people don't realize is that even relatively new brass fixtures and faucets can still contain significant amounts of lead. Just because your home is less than 20 years old doesn't necessarily mean you're lead-free." • Atrazine - an endocrine-disrupting pesticide that is widespread in US freshwaters, as well as drinking water supplied to homes across the Midwest and southern states. • Pathogens - disease causing parasites, bacteria and viruses can make their way into drinking water supplies that are not properly treated to kill these pathogens. • Chlorine treatment by-products - when present in high concentrations, by-products of the water disinfection process may pose a health risk, including a risk of cancer and a reproductive health risk. • Other contaminants - arsenic, nitrates, radioactive contaminants, vinyl chloride, perchlorate and pharmaceuticals are other potentially hazardous contaminants found in drinking water across the country. To ensure that you water is free from these contaminants we highly recommend that you filter your drinking water with a good quality drinking water filter from our range of Berkey filters.

    • Fossil Groundwater, a Source of Drinking Water for Billions of People, Contaminated with Nuclear Radiation

      Some of the world's deepest wells tap into underground aquifers that store water believed to be over 12,000 years old. Yet, while that fossil groundwater is stored deep below the Earth's surface, it is not immune to contamination by modern day practices, as previously assumed. Groundwater is the term given to all forms of water that are stored below the surface of the Earth in spaces between soil particles and within fractures in underground rock formations. Groundwater provides an important source of water used for irrigation purposes, as well as drinking water serving billions of people globally. A recent study conducted by Scott Jasechko, a hydro-geologist at the University of Calgary, together with a team of international researchers, which was recently published in the scientific journal Nature Geoscience, has revealed the presence of radioactive nuclear material in fossil water stored in deep wells. For their study, the scientists dated groundwater samples collected from over 6,000 wells around the world. The researchers were able to determine how old the water was by measuring the radioactive carbon content in the samples. They learned that most of the groundwater stored below the Earth's surface (42-85% of all the freshwater held in soil and rock within a kilometer below the Earth's surface) consists of fossil groundwater resulting from precipitation that fell to Earth over 12,000 years ago. Prior to this study, scientists believed that fossil groundwater was immune from modern contaminants. However, this study has shown that this is not the case. "The unfortunate finding is that even though deep wells pump mostly fossil groundwater, many still contain some recent rain and snow melt, which is vulnerable to modern contamination," explains Jasechko. "Our results imply that water quality in deep wells can be impacted by the land management decisions we make today." Jasechko explains that precipitation that fell to Earth since the 1950s contains traces of tritium — a radioactive material that is found around the globe due to testing of nuclear weapons. Shockingly, traces of radioactive tritium were found in waters within deep wells, indicating that recent rainwater and snow melt can potentially mix with the ancient groundwater stored deep underground, and in so doing has the potential to contaminate fossil water believed to be untainted and pure. "Roughly half of the wells contained some fraction of recent groundwater less than 50 or 60 years old," Co-author James Kirchner, a Professor at of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, who uses the analogy of grandkids visiting their grandparents to explain the consequences: "It is a bit like going to a giant old people's home and suddenly realizing there are lots of kids running around. That is great, except if the little kids have the flu!" According to Jasechko, the results of this study have important ramifications on how humans should use groundwater stored deep below the Earth in future. "The upshot is that when we use fossil groundwater we should consider water quality risk in addition to sustainable use," says Jasechko. "We may do well to develop land management plans that protect fossil groundwaters from pollutants so that these resources are available for future generations."
