The Black Berkey are the best purification elements you can buy! These elements deliver outstanding, unparalleled performance and has been tested by State & EPA accredited laboratories and determined to exceed EPA 7 ANSI / NSF (Std. 53) protocol.
Black Berkey Purification Elements can not be matched by any other gravity filter element currently available. Our testing demonstrated exceptional results. Black Berkey purification elements were testing using more than 10,000 times the concentration of pathogens per liter than is required by standard test protocol. Using 99.99% reduction, the testing requirement for pathogenic removal, it is expected that post filtered water should contain 100,000 or more pathogens per liter. Incredibly the Black Berkey purification elements removed 100%. Not one pathogen was cultured or detected, even under an electron microscope. This is a new industry water purification standard.
Black Berkey purification elements incredibly can remove food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. This performance is unparalleled in the market. You can perform this same test on your Black Berkey filters at any time to ensure your filters are operating to design specifications. Watch the video below!
Exceptionally performing Black Berkey purification elements remove or reduce the following:

|Ethylene Dibromide (EDB)
HEAVY METALS reduced by up to 95%:
|Lead||kidney, nervous system damage|
|Mercury||kidney, nervous system disorders|
|Aluminum||respiratory, nervous system disorders|
|Chromium||liver, kidney, circulatory system disorders|
These expensive filters do not need to be disposed of when they accumulate debris. These Black Berkey purification elements are re-cleanable. When you notice a the water flow rate decrease, simply brush the Black Berkey purification elements with a ScotchBrite pad under running water. Reinstall the elements into your system and normal water purifying is returned. Each robust and efficient purification element lasts for up to 3,000 gallons (6,000 gallons per set of two) with a life span of many years of efficient water purification use. Incredibility, these Black Berkey purification elements are self-sterilizing.
Note: Black Berkey purifiers are elements housed in the upper chamber. They will not perform effectively if combined with other upper chamber Ceramic elements. Only one technology is designed to operate in the upper chamber at a time.
