FILTRATION SPECIFICATIONS:

Black Berkey® Purification Elements are more powerful than any other gravity filter element currently available.  The elements have a unique purification capability that is due to their unique structure. The micro-pores within the Black Berkey® Elements are so small that viruses and pathogenic bacteria are simply not able to pass through them.

Many water filters on the market may claim to be a water purifier, but do not meet the performance specifications required for this classification. In order to be classified as a water purifier, a water treatment device must remove at least 99.9999% of pathogenic bacteria and reduce viruses by 99.99%. The Black Berkey® Purification Elements can be classified as water purifiers because they remove 99.9999999% of pathogenic bacteria and 99.999% of viruses, which greatly exceeds the standard. The Black Berkey®Purification Element formulation has been tested by State and EPA accredited laboratories to exceed NSF/ANSI Standard 53.

The Black Berkey® Purification Elements have been tested and confirmed to remove or greatly reduce the contaminants listed below:

VIRUSES – Removed to  >99.999% (Log 5)

  1. Nessie & the Yeti

    Great service from Scott,
    Quick answers & product was quickly delivered without any issues.
    I got these because you can retrofit them on 5 gallons bottles for water filtering in case of emergency.
    Just look up on youtube for DIY videos.
    I feel safer having these.

  2. Ryan McMiller

    The Berkey filters are genius. I did that math on the water needs for my small family. For such a low cost, these filters will work for about 12 years for my family. This is unbeatable, and I know because I’ve put in hours of researching water filtration products for my family.

  3. Ken Pepperdine (verified owner)

    The elements install easily and their lifespan is one of the compelling reasons to buy a Berkey

  4. Michael Samson and Miki Lee

    These filters are fantastic – we initially purchased them for peace of mind for my family while we’re out at the homestead (aka “the bight”) but have become accustomed to using them in the city as well. You can taste and feel the difference for sure. Thanks for the great service Scott,

    Miki, Michael, and Atticus

    I ordered 2 extra filters to have as back ups and future replacements. The filters were easy to install and work great. These filters will last along time so hopefully I will remember where I store the extra ones.

  6. Kevin (verified owner)

    Finally, a passion for other people’s health combined with strong business skills and prompt service to match!

  7. David Thompson

    I’m very pleased with the filters. The reviews were good, so I decided to purchase them with the fluoride filters, and I’ve been pleased with them in my big berkey. I estimate I only have to clean the filters twice a year, for single person use. And I’m glad I had them. Because of the drought, our town’s water got a lot of extra minerals in them this year. My water quality didn’t change. And Scott provides friendly customer service.

  8. Pat

    Hi Scott,
    Well I have to say that after taking some Berkey water over to my mother and sister’s house, they were both instantly hooked. My mother insisted on pouring a little into each of our water glasses and having a little “toast” before trying it … very cute, but really it’s a water worth toasting. It’s pure and clear and wonderful… It’s absolutely refreshing and a treat to drink, knowing what is NOT in the water.
    ~ Pat
    P.S. Someone wrote in pencil on the invoice “Enjoy your conscious Water Pat :)” I have to say it was a heart-warming little note, simply because I now feel like we are part of the “Berkey family” … a “real” person was on the other end wishing us well.

    On behalf of Children in Haiti – Thank you!
    I recently returned from a trip to Port-au-Prince, Haiti…and thanks to the generosity of my parents and Scott (!), was able to set up three Berkey water filtration systems for two orphanages. The children and caregivers were overwhelmed to know their water would be clean and safe to drink! It was difficult to see the little ones drinking unfiltered ‘truck water’ that was an expensive and therefore, scarce source which should absolutely have in the least been boiled before they drank it (filtered drinking water being even more expensive). Once the filter system was set up, in the words of Manmi (the head caregiver) – “they can get clean water whenever they want!” So, Thank you Scott for your contribution to the health of these children! My hope is to return in the near future to continue this project…bringing ‘Health in a Cup’…and following-up with each place a system is installed when the filters need replacing!
    Looking forward to continued contact, and more stories to share!

    I camp and live out of my small camper about 4 months a year. Last year I spent my time fly-fishing up country in British Columbia at a few remote elite mountain lakes in God's country and I have to say I REALLY encourage anyone who doubts the black Berkey filtration system, buy it!

    I bought the BPA free transparent blue unit with the black Berkey filters, unbreakable in my travels. Everyday I'd just bucket-fill my lake water and dump it into the top reservoir and just let it do it's thing. I'd go fishing, come back to camp, start laughing only to see the lower container full to the brim and overflowing all over the camp table!

    Kind of felt guilty thinking about the rest of the world, short of water unlike us here in BC, this Province being water heaven and here I have super pure & super clean fresh water not only for drinking, but also brushing teeth and washing dishes with and even enough for wasting by overflow. ;P

    Well…I'm going up country again this year, but before I do, I want to purchase two more black filters making my unit having four filters in total…that will help increase my drip time by half…and all I can say is I LUV MY BERKEY 😉
