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.
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!

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.
Black Berkey purification elements have a 2 year prorated warranty calculated in 6 months intervals. The manufacturer will replace or repair any product that it deems is not properly functioning during the stated warranty period.
BigBerkeyWaterFilters is always at your service to assist you with any warranty claims, send you replacement hardware free of charge if needed, or provide system maintenance support during the life of ownership.

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.

black berkey filters Review by Eileen Boyd
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 take Review 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 filters Review 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)

Questions on Black Berkey Filters (2)
- From Jane Lee at 11/15/13 5:02 AM
I bought a Big Berkey with 2 filters and will like to add 2 more filters. The black berkey filters are the right filters to buy?
I have not used my water filter yet.
- Hi Jane -
Yes, as long as you are using the black berkeys in the upper chamber, (and not the white ceramic filters in the upper chamber), you then can add 2 more black berkeys. The upper chamber filters must always be the same type.
