The Black Berkey Filter Elements

 

The Black Berkey purification elements are the leader in water purification, and have been tested by State & EPA accredited laboratories to exceed EPA 7 ANSI / NSF (Std. 53) protocol. (Scroll Down For Contaminant Removal List)

Black Berkey Purification Elements are more powerful than any other gravity filter element currently available. In fact, the Black Berkey purification elements have been tested with more than 10,000 times the concentration of pathogens per liter than is required by standard test protocol. This concentration of pathogens is so great that the post filtered water should be expected to contain 100,000 or more pathogens per liter (99.99% reduction - the requirement for pathogenic removal). Incredibly the purification elements removed 100%. Absolutely no pathogens were cultured from the effluent or were able to be detected, even under an electron microscope, setting a new standard in water purification.

No need for expensive disposable filters that need replcaement every couple months. Black Berkey purification elements are re-cleanable during their 6000 gallon lifetime. When the flow rate decreases simply brush the Black Berkey purification elements with a ScotchBrite pad under running water, reinstall and your system is again ready to purify water. Each durable and efficient purification element will last for up to 3,000 gallons (6,000 gallons per set of two) and provide years of efficient water purification. What's more unique is that the Black Berkey purification elements are self-sterilizing.

What's the difference between the Black Berkey Filters and the Ceramic Filters?

Black Berkey purification elements are so powerful, they can remove food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Virtually no other filtration element can duplicate this performance. Perform this test on your black berkey filters at any time to ensure your filters are operating to design specifications. Watch the video below!

The powerful Black Berkey purification elements also remove or reduce the following:

  • Pathogenic Bacteria and Cysts (E. Coli, Klebsiella, Pseudomonas Aeruginosa, Giardia, Cryptosporidium, Raoltella Terrigena, Bacillus Atrophaeus) - Reduced to > 99.9999%

Note: Black Berkey purifying elements are upper chamber elements. They do not work simultaneously with upper chamber Ceramic Super Sterasyl elements. Only one technology is designed to operate in the upper chamber at a time. These filters will work in the British Berkefeld systems and other many other gravity water filter systems on the market.  They can also be chosen as a upgraded filter to replace the ceramics.

saved me Review by Randibeach

I hate writing reviews, but my berkey saved me twice, so here I am. Once when i was impacted by Sandy a couple years ago, and just recently when my town was put on a water alert. In both instances my kids and I were able to use the Berkey and drink all the water we needed without worry. For Sandy, that was 6 days of no power and being stranded in my home in what felt like an eternity. It's not out of reach to say that a Berkey can literally save your life. (Posted on 7/25/14)
Buy them! Use Them! and get another set!Review by iamdlogan

I have taught family preparedness for 23 years...beyond being SAFE... as the number 1 Preparedness issue, WATER is the second. Berkey is the ONLY filter than I recommend, and the ONLY filter that my family uses. Never Ever Give Up, and Never Ever TRUST your water source to any filter that is not a Black Berkey.

This is my 3rd set in 12 years and I've filtered all sorts of pond and stream water with these. They're great and I don't know what I would do without them! (Posted on 1/31/13)
My takeReview by Vick

I bought a set of filters from another similar gravity filter company and I'm sorry I did. I found a couple reviews complaining about a problematic batch of black berkey fitlers from a couple years ago and that kinda scared me off. So, I went with a competitor (on the recommendation from a radio show) and within 6 months I had to replace them. They just started letting the chlorine through and stopped filtering...and I don't think they filter out nearly as many chemicals either! I bought these berkeys back in May and so far they've been great. I think the water tastes much better, but it could be in my head. I expect these to last 5 years at least, but if I have any issues, I will be definitely be updating my review! I only regret wasting my money initially on a knockoff and not doing enough research.

Love my filtersReview by Rebecca Hendricks

The Berkey system is amazing and I have recommended it to all of my friends.I bought a back up set of these filters after hurricane irene. I had a couple questions, and they got back to me quickly. It shows that their customer service is excellent and just another reason to be a loyal customer. (Posted on 11/1/11)

I built my own system using 2 plastic 5 gallon jugs. It's not the prettiest, but it works with these filter. I'm only needing it in case of a disaster where looks don't matter. (Posted on 3/9/09)

Product Questions

When you mentioned to Nancy that the Black Berkey or filters like the Black Berkey have an affect removing the Microcystin what does that mean? Do you think the Black Berkey removed enough of the Microcystin to render the water drinkable? Where do I find these study results of the filters with similar ingredients? And will these results tell me if the water they produced is drinkable or not? I just purchased a Berkey Travel and want to know if it will help my situation with the Microcystin here in Toledo , Ohio that's all.
Thanks, and I look forward to hearing what you have to say.

I see it filters bacteria, but what about the toxins produced like microcystis?
0
We have a 200 gallon hot tub that we always thought could be used as an emergency water source if needed. However, I've seen posts online indicating that this water would be full of bacteria and even if boiled first would not be drinkable. I just purchased a Travel Berkey with the additional PF-2 filters. Would this be sufficient to filter the hot tub water directly?

I have a Big Berkey & love it. I've been having to use a veggie peeler once a month on the black filters so water filters through again.
I'm starting to see an indent on the filter. Over time, how will I know when I've removed enough that replacement is in order?

Thank you
