Versatile and can fit most gravity filters, these purification elements have been rigorously tested and prove themselves to be the best filters available. These are re-cleanable and 1 set of filters will last for up to 6,000 gallons. Many Berkey systems are expandable to house 4 filters to increase output, or you may want a set in reserve as “back up” for future use.
Each package comes with (2) two 9″ elements, and you can order multiples, so 3 orders will include 6 total filters.
Black Berkey® Purification Elements are more powerful than any other gravity filter element currently available. The Black Berkey® purification elements were tested with more than 10,000 times the concentration of pathogens per liter than is required by standard test protocol. This concentration of pathogens is so great that the post filtered water should be expected to contain 100,000 or more pathogens per liter (99.99% reduction – the requirement for pathogenic removal). Incredibly the purification elements removed 100%. Absolutely no pathogens were cultured from the effluent or were able to be detected, even under an electron microscope, setting a new standard in water purification.
Black Berkey® purification elements are so powerful, they can remove red food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Virtually no other filtration element can duplicate this performance. The powerful Black Berkey® purification elements also remove or reduce viruses, pathogenic cysts, parasites, harmful or unwanted chemicals such as herbicides and pesticides, VOCs, detergents, organic solvents, cloudiness, trihalomethanes, silt, sediment, heavy metals, foul tastes and odors, yet they leave in the healthful and beneficial minerals that your body needs.
Because Black Berkey® purification elements fit most gravity filters, existing gravity filtration systems can be upgraded. This vastly improves their ability to remove unwanted contaminates. No need for expensive disposable filters. Black Berkey® purification elements are re-cleanable. When the flow rate decreases simply brush the Black Berkey® purification elements with a ScotchBrite® pad under running water, reinstall and your system is again ready to purify water. Each durable and efficient purification element will last for up to 3,000 gallons (6,000 gallons per set of two) and provide years of efficient water purification. What’s more, the unique Black Berkey® purification elements are self-sterilizing.
