There Is No Substitute for Berkey® Quality. Choose Only Authentic Berkey® Products.
Over two decades ago, NMCL developed the proprietary formulation for our Black Berkey® Elements, which are the primary filters used in Berkey® systems and are designed to meet the speciﬁc needs of consumers seeking practical and cost-eﬀective water ﬁltration solutions. During their history, Black Berkey® Elements have undergone what we believe to be the most rigorous testing of any other gravity-fed water filter elements. Berkey® systems are simple and easy to use and require no electricity, costly installation, or tools, providing economical, long-lasting water ﬁltration for just pennies a gallon. Berkey® systems are used every day in homes around the world by discerning consumers who trust the quality of Berkey® systems to meet their drinking water needs.
As a result, Black Berkey® Elements have become known as the gold standard in gravity fed water filtration, becoming the most popular name in its category of water filtration products.
However, with the recent influx of Chinese and other foreign counterfeit filters entering the market (inferior products that appear very similar to genuine Black Berkey® Elements), consumers are being misled by not being able to determine the difference between the authentic Black Berkey® Elements and the counterfeit carbon block filters. These foreign counterfeit products have inherent performance and usability issues, which customers now are mistakenly attributing to Berkey® products—damaging our brand’s hard-earned and well-deserved reputation for performance and reliability. This deception must be addressed.
Don’t be fooled into buying a counterfeit or knockoff—here’s what you need to know so you can shop for Berkey® systems with confidence.
