Berkey Water Filter Contaminants Removal Guide

It's no secret that a secure, clean source of drinking water is critical for any household. And if you're reading this article, you're probably already familiar with the general concept behind Berkey water filters: Durable, high-performing, gravity filters, built for a variety of sizes and use cases.

But just how "high-performing" are they? Well, if you take the time to study the packaging on a Berkey filter, you will see a list of no less than 203 toxins that Black Berkeys eliminate. That's nothing to shake a stick at! When you look at the list however, you'll see things like "Dibromochloromethane" and "Hexachlorocyclopentadiene." Since these aren't exactly household names, it can be difficult to know exactly what they are, and how they affect us.

Well, in an effort to clear up a little bit of the confusion, our friend Dan at Homestead Launch put together a handy graphic reference guide, that explains where water contaminants come from. As you can see, water contamination comes from a variety of sources: biological, industrial, agricultural, medical facilities, and even water treatment plants.

Fortunately, Berkey filters eliminate them all, and this guide provides a really easy and visual way to show that. Take a look!

Hopefully that helps explain the contaminants that are in our water supply (and that Berkey eliminates them!). If you have a friend that might be on the fence about getting a Berkey, this would be a great resource to share with them.

    Y’all, I tried water from one of your Berkey filters and it was like water I’ve never tasted. I’ve never thought water in me town had a taste really... compared to other towns I’ve been to anyway. But then I tried some from your filter and it was incredible. I want to get one so badly so I can show this to my friends, church and family etc. gotta start saving my pennies though! But I know it’s worth the cost. Well worth it. So thank you for creating something like this. Y’all are amazing.

    I dont see anything about hard water.
    We have been using an ion ways water system and drinking the water on the alkaline level 3 setting. For a second time in 4 years we have been making a lot of kidney stones and believe it is the water system.
    We had to put a separate inline scale filter on it because the glasses were coated with a white film.
    Will the berkey remove the calcium?
