Our Black Berkey Purification Elements are more powerful than any other gravity filter element currently available. The micro-pores within the cleanable Black Berkey purification elements are so small that pathogenic bacteria and even viruses are simply not able to pass through them. Black Berkey purification elements are so powerful, they can remove red food coloring from water. Yet, they will not remove the beneficial minerals your body needs. Virtually no other filtration element can duplicate this performance.
The powerful Black Berkey purification elements also remove or reduce viruses, pathogenic cysts, parasites, harmful or unwanted chemicals such as herbicides and pesticides, VOCs, detergents, organic solvents, cloudiness, trihalomethanes, silt, sediment, heavy metals, foul tastes and odours, yet they leave in the healthful and beneficial minerals that your body needs and….
Here’s a little secret! Because Black Berkey purification elements fit most gravity filters, your existing gravity filtration systems can be upgraded. This vastly improves their ability to remove unwanted contaminates.
Our Black Berkey Purification Elements are incredibly affordable! Why? Unlike other systems that use expensive disposable water filters, our Black Berkey purification elements are cleanable. When the flow rate decreases simply remove the Black Berkey purification elements from the can and then brush them under running water with a clean ScotchBrite® pad, then reinstall and your system is again ready to purify water. Each durable and efficient purification element will last for up to 11,000 litres (22,000 litres per set of two) and provide years of efficient water purification.
Because the Black Berkey Purification Elements are so powerful they can remove red food colouring from water. This allows you a method to test your system periodically. We recommended that the Red Food Color Test be run after new systems are first assembled. We also recommend that they be tested every 3 to 6 months thereafter, after your system has been in storage or before taking your system on a trip or out of the country, in order to insure your system is functioning properly.
