About Berkey Systems
The Berkey's unique design combines the age-old process of micro-porous filtration used by nature coupled with modern state-of-the-art technology and the highest quality materials to bring you virtually the finest water filtration system available anywhere.

To use, the upper chamber of the unit is filled with water. Gravity draws this water through the exclusive British Berkefeld® ceramic filters, where it then collects in the lower chamber.

The two piece housing is portable and can be used virtually anywhere, anytime. An easy to turn on-off spigot is used as the outflow tap.

Takes minutes to assemble and can provide many gallons of good-tasting, sparkling, wholesome drinking water each day. Constructed of high grade, polished stainless steel making it hygienic, durable and easy to clean.

Black Berkey Purification Elements
They’re new and they are more powerful than any gravity filter element on the market. In fact, we tested the Black Berkey Purification Element 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 Black Berkey removed 100%, with absolutely no pathogens detectable, setting a new standard in water purification.

The powerful Black Berkey Purification Element also remove or reduce pathogenic cysts, parasites, harmful or unwanted chemicals such as herbicides and pesticides, VOC’s, SOC’s detergents, organic solvents, trihalomethanes, cloudiness, silt, sediment, nitrates, nitrites, heavy metals, foul tastes and odors. They also remove viruses (MS2 and FR Coliphage). Yet they leave in the healthful and beneficial minerals that your body needs. Most existing gravity filtration systems can be retrofitted with Black Berkey elements, which upgrades them to gravity purifiers.
