These water purification elements are the original factory replacement for all Berkey Water Filter systems. Guaranteed to purify 6000 gallons of water before needing to be replaced.
These filters will remove pathogenic bacteria, viruses, VOCs, heavy metals (cadmium, chromium, copper, lead, mercury, aluminum, and others), cysts, parasites, herbicides, pesticides, organic solvents, detergents, cloudiness, silt, sediment, foul tastes, odors, and chlorine from standing water and deliver clean, delicious drinking water.
The two Berkey Purification Elements greatly exceed the NSF/ANSI Standard 53 for water purifying.
These elements will purify a minimum of 6000 gallons before needed to be replaced.
The Berkey filters increase the PH (alkalinity) of the water. Pathogenic bacteria and viruses have difficulty surviving in alkaline environments so this helpful in keeping your water pure. It also helps to lower the number bacteria and viruses in your body when you drink Berkey water for the same reason.
Black Berkey elements are built to leave the beneficial minerals in the water and to remove only the unwanted heavy metals like lead and mercury and sedimentary minerals like iron oxide and aluminum.
As you use the filters and they start to drip more slowly, it is because turbidity and sediment are clogging the micro-pores of the purification elements. Just remove the elements from your system, scrub the outside of both elements with preferably a ScotchBrite pad, stiff toothbrush, or vegetable brush. Scrub a section of the filter until you see a little black on the pad and then move to the next part of it. It’s simple to do and takes only a few minutes.
