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 protocols. This concentration of pathogens is so great that the post filtered water would 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.

The revolutionary self-sterilizing and cleanable purification elements purify water by removing or reducing viruses, pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites entirely and by extracting harmful chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, VOCs, detergents, organic solvents, radon 222 and trihalomethanes. They also reduce foul tastes, odors, rust, silt, sediment and unhealthy heavy metals such as lead and mercury.

Because Black Berkey® purification elements fit most gravity filters; existing gravity filtration systems can be upgraded. This vastly improves their ability to remove unwanted contaminates.

Black Berkey® purification elements are so powerful, they can remove red food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Virtually no other filtration element can duplicate this performance. This unique ability allows you a method to test your system periodically.  We recommended that the Filter Test be run after new systems are first assembled. We also recommend that they be tested every 3 to 6 months thereafter, after your system has been in storage or before taking your system on a trip or out of the country, in order to insure your system is functioning properly.

A Berkey® is easily the most economical purifier you can own. A set of two Black Berkey purification elements purify an amazing 6000 gallons that comes to a cost of less than $.02 / gallon and can last for years under normal use.

No need for the hassle and expensive disposable filters. Black Berkey® purification elements are cleanable. When the flow rate decreases simply lightly scrub the Black Berkey® purification elements with a Scotch Brite® pad under running water, reinstall and your filter is ready to purify even more water. What’s more, these unique elements are impregnated with self-sterilizing compounds for years of worry free service.

The Black Berkey® purification element formulation has been tested by State & EPA accredited laboratories to exceed EPA & ANSI/NSF (Std. 53) protocol.
