Water filters made from carbon-block or coconut-carbon block may look similar to each other, but can offer very different levels of performance. Here’s what makes Black Berkey® Purification Elements one-of-a-kind.
The Leader in Gravity-Fed Water Purification
Made in the USA, powerful Black Berkey® Purification Elements are a proprietary blend of several different media types including high-grade coconut shell carbon. Black Berkey® Purification Elements have been specifically designed and independently tested to address more than 200 contaminants in your drinking water. Berkey® by NMCL has used several different independent labs, reviewed multiple samples and performed Extreme Testing for Lead and PFCs in order to review the effectiveness of our Black Berkey® Purification Elements.
Berkey® systems equipped with Black Berkey® Purification Elements reduce up to 99.999% of viruses and 99.9999% of pathogenic bacteria, while also removing or dramatically reducing protozoa, trihalomethanes, inorganic minerals, heavy metals, pharmaceuticals, pesticides, VOCs, petroleum products, perfluorinated chemicals, rust, silt, sediment and even radiologicals.
Proven Every Day
Berkey® systems have been relied upon by people around the world in the harshest of conditions. Families facing natural disasters, missionary organizations working in unforgiving parts of the world, relief agencies battling the elements, and everyday families rely on Berkey® Systems to do what they say they can do, and continue to choose them time and again.
Berkey® systems let you enjoy clean, delicious purified water that retains the healthy minerals your body needs for less than 2 cents per gallon. Each pair of Black Berkey® Purification Elements can easily purify—not just filter—up to 6,000 gallons of water before needing replacement. Moreover, they are self-sterilizing and do not have a time limitation.
Authentic Black Berkey® Purification Elements are the Right Choice for Your Loved Ones
Available in 7 sizes, Berkey® water purification systems are made for the extreme, yet enjoyed every day. They can easily purify ordinary tap water and well water, yet are powerful enough to efficiently purify raw, untreated water from freshwater sources such as remote lakes, rivers and streams.
