WATER ELEMENT SPECIAL FEATURE: BERKEY FILTERS
The Berkey Water Filter System is Revolutionary. The water filters provide the ultimate in waterbourne contamination removal. They are used worldwide to set the international standard for water filters used in clean or hostile filtration environments.
Owning a Berkey Water Filter gives you the ability to utilize almost any outside natural water source and transform it into the best tasting, purest drinking water possible. All while using a natural method without the use of chemicals or complicated processes.
The Berkey water filter system is so powerful it is classified as a purifier. This classification shows that we far exceed the abilities of the standard water filter. The portable Berkey can be used to filter non-potable or unhealthy water in situations where electricity and pressure are not available. For normal every day water from your faucet or for challenging environments like wells, rivers and lakes, Berkey is the most flexible and adaptable filtering system available. Berkey water costs just 1.7 cents per gallon to produce. The cleanable Black Berkey replacement filters provide an economical, reliable and powerful long term solution to poor water quality issues that cannot be equaled. Our most popular model, the Big Berkey has a long standing reputation for quality and service. This reputation is the reason we are trusted around the world by numerous international relief organizations to provide clean emergency drinking water to workers and citizens during times of crisis or natural disaster.
Through diligent testing and research we have proven that Berkey water filters remove viruses to purification standards, pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites to non detectable levels, and harmful or unwanted chemicals to below detectable levels. Until these test results were made public, words like non-detectable were seldom if ever used to describe the abilities of a water filter to remove harmful pollutants. The filters in the Berkey system not only took the industry by storm with these unheard of benefits, but also added the ability to reduce toxic heavy metals such as lead and mercury without removing the beneficial and nutritional minerals needed to support a healthy body and mind. Review and compare the ability of the unique Berkey Water Filter to Brita, Aquasana, Pur, Katadyn or bottled water and see for yourself what we have to offer and why we dominate the portable water filter industry.
The Black Berkey Purification Elements far surpass other water filters in filtration capability as evidenced by their extensive filtration specifications. These elements have a specialized purification process that is due to their unique structure. The element's filtration media is a combination of micro-pores, which trap harmful contaminants like bacteria, and revolutionary material with adsorption and ion exchange properties that essentially attract molecules and viruses to the media, preventing them from passing into your drinking water.
Many water filters on the market may claim to be a purifier but do not meet the performance specifications required for this classification. In order to be classified as a water purifier, a water treatment device must remove at least 99.9999% of pathogenic bacteria (known as a log 6 reduction in the water treatment industry) and reduce viruses by 99.99% (log 4 reduction). Our Berkey water filter systems can be classified as a water purifier because the elements actually remove 99.9999999% of pathogenic bacteria (log 9 reduction) and 99.999% of viruses which greatly exceeds the standards.
The Black Berkey filters have been tested by several EPA-accredited laboratories including the Department of Toxicology and Environmental Science at Louisiana University, Spectrum Labs, and the University of Phoenix. This extensive testing confirmed that the Black Berkey Purification Elements far exceed EPA and ANSI/NSF (Std. 53) protocol.
The Black Berkey filters have been tested and confirmed to remove or greatly reduce the contaminants listed here

WHAT CAN WE KNOW ABOUT THE ELEMENT OF WATER?
Berkey water filters are unique in their ability to to meet the needs of a wide range of users. These abilities mean that if you purchase a Berkey, you will not have to compromise on any of the attributes you consider necessary.
All Berkey water filters produce purified drinking water. In order to be classified as a water purifier, Berkey has surpassed standards set by the military in order to be able to differentiate between water filters of different abilities. These standards set the bar so high that very few are able to achieve this classification. Berkey water filters not only meet this standard but surpasses it with never before seen results.

The water filtration elements inside every Berkey system are cleanable, this allows each Black Berkey element to produce up to 3000 gallons of purified drinking water without the costly need of replacement. Take our most popular system the Big Berkey for example. This system comes with two filters, so the life of these filters would be 6000 gallons. The average family of four would drink about 2 to 4 gallons of water per day. Under those conditions the filters would not need replaced for a minimum of 4 years. That's using the Berkey to produce every drop of drinking and cooking water you would need for 1500 continuous days. Factor in the cost to replace the filters and the cost to enjoy purified drinking water is less than 2 cents per gallon. Compare this to other water filters on the market.
The technology that Berkey uses to purify water is able to handle the very smallest of water contaminants, even viruses, making it on of the most powerful water filtering systems available. This ability is all possible using the most simple, foolproof methods, starting with micro-filtration. The pore structure of the Black Berkey filtering element is so small that minute organisms are not physically able to pass through the filtration medium. To make this microscopic structure even more powerful we incorporate the second simple but powerful technology, ionic absorbtion. This method adds an ionic charge that repels many other contaminants that would otherwise pass through the filter including heavy metals and chemicals. These abilities are built into the filters structure, they do not wear out or diminish in ability over time. So all that needs to be done to restore the filter to like new condition, is clean it to remove the contaminants that are trapped on the outermost surface of the element. That's it, foolproof and simple.
The Berkey water filter is used worldwide to meet the needs of of a wide range of users. Emergency relief workers depend on the Berkey to take water of questionable quality and transform it into drinking water. People preparing for disaster purchase the Berkey water filter and put it in long term storage along with other preparation items. Health conscience people use the Berkey to rid their water of contaminants that are harmful to their bodies. People in remote areas or areas that only have access to water from outside sources like streams or lakes trust the Berkey for their needs. With a wide range of sizes and filter configurations the Berkey water filter is able to handle any size group from 1 person to a large group of people up to 150.
When you purchase water from water fill stations or buy bottled water, do you really know the quality of that water? With water fill stations, much maintenance is required for the machine to function properly. Is the person in charge of that maintenance changing filters when necessary or do they let them go beyond their ability to boost profits? Is the machine sanitized on a regular basis? Is the bottled water you purchase going through a filtering process, or is it just regular tap water from a municipal supply? The point is that if you are not producing your own water, you really are not in control of the quality of that water. If you own a Berkey Water Filter system you will be in charge of all of these factors and know that the water is being purified to the highest quality standards.
