Be wary when you see “fit” language—fit and performance are two very different things.

Imitation filters can be made to fit Berkey® systems. However it is performance that directly impacts your loved ones.

  • Don’t let looks fool you. Carbon block technology has been used to filter water for nearly 50 years. Water filters made from carbon-block or coconut-carbon block often look similar, but may offer very different levels of performance.
  • Understand the difference. Black Berkey® Elements are composed of a proprietary blend of multiple media types designed to work synergistically and target specific contaminants that far exceed the reduction capabilities of carbon block filters that are solely composed of activated carbon. Black Berkey® Elements are proven to efficiently address more than 200 contaminants in your drinking water.
  • A miscalculation could have serious consequences. Don’t put the lives of your loved ones in peril by choosing an imitation filter. Make sure you buy only authentic Black Berkey® Elements, which are backed by independent, third-party testing.
  • Warning: imitation filters jeopardize your warranty. New Millennium Concepts, Ltd. proudly stands behind our Berkey® products. However, use of non-NMCL filters and accessories will void your system’s warranty.

Authentic Black Berkey® Elements are the Right Choice for Your Loved Ones

Available in 7 sizes, Berkey® water filtration systems are made for the extreme, yet enjoyed every day. They can easily filter ordinary tap water and well water, yet are powerful enough to efficiently filter raw, untreated water from freshwater sources such as remote lakes, rivers and streams.
