FIVE REASONS TO CHOOSE A BLACK BERKEY PURIFIERS

HIGHLY EFFICIENT

LOW COST

LONG-LASTING

EASY INSTALLATION

LOW MAINTENANCE

THE EFFICIENCY OF THE BLACK BERKEY FILTERS REMAINS UNMATCHED

The Black Berkey Filter was tested with more than 10,000 times the concentration of pathogens per liter than is required by standard testing protocol. It is certified to eliminate pathogenic bacteria to the EPA's "7 Log" purification standard of 99.99999% reduction

The Black Berkey purification element formulation was tested by the following State and EPA accredited laboratories:

The University of Arizona,

Spectrum Labs,

The Department of Toxicology and Environmental Science, Louisianna State University

YOUR BERKEY FILTER ACTUALLY PURIFIES YOUR WATER
99.99% was …”NOT GOOD ENOUGH”

To claim Pathogenic bacterial removal a filter must demonstrate a reduction of bacterial contaminants of 99.99%.
Not bad, but NOT GOOD ENOUGH
To claim “purification” a filter must demonstrate a reduction of pathogens of 99.99999%.
The Black Berkey Filter was tested with a “Soup” of contaminants 10,000 times that required by standard protocols.

Incredibly, the purification elements removed 100% of the pathogens. No pathogens were able to be cultured from the effluent or were able to be detected under an electron microscope. These results set a new standard in Water Purification.

Black Berkey filters are so powerful they can remove food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. No other gravity feed filter system can duplicate this performance.

You can be confident that your Berkey will provide you and your loved ones with safe and fresh-tasting drinking water – Everyday and in an Emergency.

HEAVY METALS
reduced by up to 95%:

Health Effects of Heavy Metals
Lead - kidney, nervous system damage
Mercury - kidney, nervous system disorders
Aluminum - respiratory, nervous system disorders
Cadmium - kidney damage
Chromium - liver, kidney, circulatory system disorders
Copper - gastro-enteric diseases

ALSO REMOVES OR REDUCES:

Unpleasant taste and odors – reduced by 99.9%
Cloudiness, silt and sediment – Reduced by 9.9%
Chlorine and residuals – Reduced by 99.9%
Nitrates and Nitrites – Greater the 85% reduction at 19mg per liter

YOU DON’T WANT ARSENIC OR FLUORIDE IN YOUR WATER

With the addition of the Berkey PF-2 element, arsenic and fluoride are removed between 95% and 97.5%.

The PF-2 element does not come with the unit and must be ordered separately.
We recommend you check with your local health department to find out if Arsenic or Fluoride has been found in the water system serving you.

WHAT ABOUT VIRUSES?

The extremely small size of viruses make them difficult for any filter to contain.
THEY MUST BE KILLED.
Chlorine is the most convenient means of eliminating the water-borne threat of any virus.

Black Berkey water treatment method is an integral part of this method of treating virus-contaminated water supplies.
The accepted standard for the use of chlorine to kill water-borne viruses is 8 to 16 drops of chlorine (common bleach) per gallon of water. ( Better too much than too little)
Add the chlorine to the water in the upper chamber.
Note: Chlorine and its residuals are considered by leading authorities to be harmful to you health.
The Black Berkey Filter elements remove the chlorine and its harmful residuals from the chlorinated water, leaving you with ultra-pure, safe, fresh-tasting water.

BLACK BERKEY FILTERS ARE HIGHLY EFFICIENT

Each Black Berkey filter element will filter up to 3,000 gallons of tap water.
The Travel Berkey with two Black Berkey filter elements will filter up to 6,000 gallons of water.
The Royal Berkey, fully expanded with four Black Berkey filter elements, will filter up to 12,000 gallons of water.
The Imperial Berkey, fully expanded with six Black Berkey filter elements, will filter up to 18,000 gallons of water.
The Crown Berkey, fully expanded with 8 Balck Berkey filter elements will filter up to 24,000 gallons of water.

Note: Filter life is determined to some extent by the amount of contaminant in the water.
Water with a high amount of suspended sediment will somewhat reduce the life of the filters.
The above estimates are based on filtering tap water.

BLACK BERKEY FILTERS ARE LOW MAINTENANCE
Easy Installation and Low Maintenance Means Less Nuisance

Each Black Berkey Filter element can be cleaned many times, how often will be determined by the quality of water being used. Most sources of water are relatively free of sediment and the filter will not have to be cleaned often.

Cleaning the filter is easy 1. 2. 3. .

  1. Simply remove the filter the same way you put it in. (No tools required).
  2. Place it under running water and scrub it with a scotch pad or equivalent.
  3. Rinse it off and put it back.
You’re now ready to put water in the top and draw pure water off the bottom.

BLACK BERKEY FILTERS ARE LOW COST

Low Initial Cost -
Not only is the low initial cost of buying a Berkey comparably less than most brands and types of water treatment systems, the truly amazing savings comes in the incredibly -

Low Cost Per Gallon -
Able to filter up to 3,000 gallons per filter element, the Black Berkey is one of the most cost-effective filters on the market. When you compare the effectiveness of comparably priced filters, no other filter comes close.
The Black Berkey inexpensively provides you with safe, healthy, fresh-tasting drinking water at pennies per gallon.

BLACK BERKEY FILTERS KEEP YOU PROTECTED ALL THE TIME

A Huge Flaw in the Design of Other Systems
Most filter systems keep on letting water to your tap even after the filter has ceased working. If you are not keeping close track of the manufacturer’s recommendations,
“You Are At Risk”.
The filter and the water delivery system of which it is a part could very well be contaminated.
Your water could be putting you at risk at this point.

Berkey Filter Design Keeps Unsafe Water from You
The Black Berkey Filter is designed to prohibit the passage of microbial pathogens into the lower chamber and into you.
When the filter capacity is reached it stops allowing water through. That is your signal that the filter needs to be cleaned.

OTHER FILTER SYSTEMS HAVE THESE DRAWBACKS

Other systems, such as Reverse Osmosis or Distilling and those using a UV light and Activated Carbon are effective but:
  1. Are much more costly to install
  2. Much more costly to run
  3. May not effectively remove all the contaminants that put you at risk
  4. Take much more effort and expense to maintain
  5. Put you at risk if not properly mainained
  6. Will not work if the electricity is out
  7. Not effective in an emergency
  8. Not portable
That is a considerable number of drawback.
The Black Berkey filter is convenient and effective - the perfect choice.

REPLACEMENT BLACK BERKEY FILTERS

All the models of Berkey fiters take the same Black Berkey Filter – One Size Fits All.

Additionally – the Black Berkey can be used as a replacement for the Super Sterasyl filter that came with older models of Berkey and British Berkefeld products.

Don’t Wait To Order a Replacement Filter
The whole concept of being prepared hinges on not waiting to get what you might need till you absolutely have to have it. Don’t wait to order your replacement filter - do it now. You’ll feel a sense of satisfaction and relief for having done it.
We recommend carrying at least one spare set of Black Berkey® elements to assure your supply of clean, safe water.
