Berkey® Systems Secret
Black Berkey® Elements
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, and are backed by independent third-party testing. 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, radiologicals, and more.
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. 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.
