THE NUMBER ONE RULE OF A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE – PROTECT YOUR HEALTH

Effect of Water Contamination Doesn’t Stop with a Simple Case of Diarrhea.
The American Academy of Microbiology states “80% of all infectious diseases are related to waterborne microbes.”


Harmful Contaminants Are Not Limited to Microorganisms
The EPA states that “over 2100 toxins have been found in US drinking water.”

Unpurified, Your Water Could Contain All of these Categories of Harmful Contaminants:

  • Protozoan Parasites and Toxic Bacteria
  • Toxic chemicals
  • Heavy metals
  • Pesticides
  • Chlorine and it’s residuals

THE SOLUTION COULD BE THE PROBLEM IF YOU CHOOSE UNWISELY

The Most-Common Choices May Not Be Common-Sense Choices.
  • Countertop and Small Under-sink Filters - Wrong choice will leave you vulnerable The water keeps flowing, safe to drink or not. Will not work in an emergency or electrical outage
  • Whole-House Filters with UV light (the most common system) Only works if the bulb is actually “on”, as in: plugged in or not burned out, The water keeps flowing, safe to drink or not. Will not work in an emergency or electrical outage.
  • Reversed Osmosis or Distillers Very high quality water at a moderate cost per gallon but: Water will continue to flow from an RO unit safe to drink or not. Not great choices if cost of electricity is figured in. Will not work in an emergency or electrical outage
  • Bottled Water –an Unfortunate and Unwise Favorite It’s expensive (and going up), It’s heavy (a whopping 40 lbs for a 20 liter bottle), It’s of uncertain quality (largely unregulated), It’s inconvenient, It puts a terrible burden on poorer families It’s an environmental disaster What more could you ask of a product that you use every day?

REVOLUTIONARY BREAKTHROUGH IN FILTER TECHNOLOGY NOW AVAILABLE FROM BERKEY PUTS YOU IN CONTROL

What the Berkey Does
This powerful system purifies both chemically treated municipal water, (assuring you of safe, clean fresh-tasting water everyday) as well as raw water from lakes, streams, ponds or swimming pools in the event of an emergency (think New Orleans and Katrina).

How the Berkey Works
This simple design uses gravity (not electricity) to draw water through the purification elements. The elements use micro-porous filtration and a proprietary media to further purify the water. This advanced technology was developed, refined, laboratory test, certified and proven in actual use in the most extreme conditions throughout the world.

HERE’S HOW WELL THE BERKEY WORKS AT PROTECTING YOUR HEALTH

The Exclusive Black Berkey Filter has unrivaled performance at removing:
  • Pathogenic Bacteria, Cysts and Parasites such as E.Coli, Klebsiella, Giardia and Cryptosporidium removed to below detectable levels
  • Trihalomethanes such as Bromoform, Chloroform and Dibromochloromethane removed to below detectable levels
  • Radiologicals such as Radon 222 removed to below detectable levels
  • Inorganic Minerals such as Chlorine residuals removed to below detectable levels
  • Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC”s) removed to below detectable levels
  • Heavy Metals such as lead, mercury, aluminum., cadmium, chromium removed by up to 95%
  • Also removes or reduces nitrates and nitrites

YOU DON’T WANT ARASENIC, FLOURIDE OR HEAVY METALS IN YOUR WATER

A Note of Caution about arsenic and fluoride.
Check with the local water utilities or Public Health Department to determine if they have been found in your area.

Extra Protection comes with the PF-2 Filter
PF-2 filter elements were designed for use in conjunction with the Black Berkey water purification elements to “adsorb” the following elements found in drinking water.
  • Flouride
  • Arsenic V and pre-oxidized Arsenic III
  • Other residual heavy metal ions.

If you are at risk from the above elements we recommend you order a set of these filters along with your choice of Berkey models by clicking on the photo below. They simple fasten to the bottom of the Black Berkey filter. (You need one PF-2 filter for each Black Berkey filter.)
