These two Black Berkey Purification Elements are more powerful than
any other gravity filter element currently available and fit most
gravity filters, dramatically improving their ability to remove unwanted
Black Berkey purification elements are so powerful, they can remove
food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your
body needs. Virtually no other filtration element can duplicate this
We tested the Black Berkey purification elements with more than
10,000 times the concentration of pathogens per liter than is required
by standard test protocol. This concentration of pathogens is so great
that the post filtered water should 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 powerful Black Berkey purification elements also remove or reduce
pathogenic cysts, parasites, harmful or unwanted chemicals such as
herbicides and pesticides, VOCs, detergents,
organic solvents, trihalomethanes, cloudiness, silt, sediment, nitrates,
nitrites, heavy metals, foul tastes and odors, yet they leave in the
healthful and beneficial minerals that your body needs.
No need for expensive disposable filters. Black Berkey purification
elements are re-cleanable. When the flow rate decreases simply brush the
Black Berkey purification elements with a ScotchBrite pad under running
water, reinstall and your system is again ready to purify water. Each
durable and efficient purification element will last for up to 3,000
gallons (6,000 gallons per set of two) and provide years of efficient
water purification. What's more, the unique Black Berkey purification
elements are self-sterilizing.
The Black Berkey purification element formulation has been tested by State and EPA accredited laboratories to exceed EPA and ANSI/NSF (Std. 53) protocol."
