There is no substitute for Berkey® quality. Berkey® systems equipped with authentic Black Berkey® Elements are an essential in today’s world: they “check all the boxes”, addressing the concerns listed above.
Black Berkey® Elements are Specially Formulated to Address 200+ Typical Contaminants Found in Tap Water and Other Freshwater Sources.
Our unique Black Berkey® Elements are made from a proprietary blend of media designed to work synergistically and target specific contaminants that far exceed the reduction capabilities of filters that are solely composed of activated carbon or ceramic materials. The gold standard in gravity-fed water filtration, authentic Black Berkey® Elements are capable of greater contaminant reduction and a longer lifespan than virtually any of the other filter elements on the market, and are an economical choice, averaging just pennies per gallon of filtered water.
Berkey® systems equipped with Black Berkey® Elements dramatically reduce trihalomethanes, inorganic minerals, heavy metals, pharmaceuticals, pesticides, VOCs, petroleum products, perfluorinated chemicals, rust, silt, sediment and even radiologicals.
Berkey® Water Systems has used independent labs, tested multiple samples, and performed Extreme-Testing for Lead and PFC’s in order to review the effectiveness of our Black Berkey® Elements.
We recommend replacing Black Berkey® Elements every 3,000 gallons (6,000 per set of 2 elements). Elements may require replacement sooner based upon the quality of influent water. Plus, they can be re-primed for re-use if they dry out, making them ideal for travel or emergency/occasional use. Black Berkey® Elements are also economical—important in these uncertain times—for just pennies per gallon of filtered water.
