Berkey Water Filters utilize an advanced and a powerful form of filter that they call the Black Berkey filter elements. The Black Berkey elements are used in all of Berkey’s systems in order to take water filtration into a whole new level. The Black Berkey Elements may even pass to be called as a Berkey Water purifier because they do not only remove bacteria and parasites from your drinking water, they can also remove more than 99.999% or viruses.
A test was conducted by independent, EPA approved laboratories, and the results to their tests showed that Black Berkey Elements were able to filter out a long list of water contaminants, this result had been never seen before and Berkey certainly raised the bar for the standards in the water filter industry.
As a result of this, Black Berkey Elements are considered as some of the most efficient water filters available in the market today, the micro-pores that are found within the cleanable Black Berkey Filter Elements are so small that pathogenic bacteria cannot pass through them. These filters can also remove the coloring from the water without having to remove the minerals that are beneficial to the needs of our body. Apparently, no other filtration element can match to the performance given by the Black Berkey.
When should you change your Black Berkey Filter Elements?
Each of the Black Berkey filter elements has a life of 3,000 gallons, which is equal to an incredible amount of 6,000 gallons for a two filter system. But there is no need for you to use expensive and disposable filters.
A Black Berkey filter Element is re-cleanable. When you notice that the water flow rate decreases, just take out your ScotchBrite pad and brush the Black Berkey filter element under running water. After that, simply re-install the system and it is ready to purify water again. But the filter cannot be used forever; Black Berkey filter elements can be cleaned up to 100 times before having it replaced.
