$124.00$952.00

Black Berkey® Elements have been tested by accredited third-party labs that have reported that the elements exceed EPA and ANSI/NSF (Std. 53) protocol, and address over 200+ typical contaminants found in tap water and other freshwater sources.

Black Berkey® Elements mechanically extract waterborne pathogens while dramatically reducing protozoa, trihalomethanes, inorganic minerals, heavy metals, pharmaceuticals, pesticides, VOCs, petroleum products, perfluorinated chemicals, rust, silt, sediment and even radiologicals.

1 set includes two 9″ Authentic Black Berkey® Elements with 2 washers, 2 wing nuts, and 1 priming button (1 single element may also be purchased)

Description

 

The Black Berkey® Elements are made and assembled in the USA

  • Sold as a set of 2 elements
  • Includes: Two 9″ Authentic Black Berkey® Elements with 2 washers, 2 wing nuts, and 1 priming button (1 single filter may also be purchased)
  • Installed in Upper Chamber of Berkey System
  • Black Berkey® Elements are the leader in gravity-fed water Filtration, backed by independent testing
  • Black Berkey® Elements mechanically extract waterborne pathogens while dramatically reducing protozoa, trihalomethanes, inorganic minerals, heavy metals, pharmaceuticals, pesticides, VOCs, petroleum products, perfluorinated chemicals, rust, silt, sediment and even radiologicals.
  • Black Berkey® Elements have been tested by accredited third-party labs that have reported that the elements exceed EPA and ANSI/NSF (Std. 53) protocol, and address over 200+ typical contaminants found in tap water and other freshwater sources.
  • Installs in the upper chamber of any Berkey system. Elements can also be used to upgrade most other gravity-fed water filter systems
  • We recommend replacing Black Berkey® Elements every 3,000 gallons / 11,000 litres (6000 gallons/22,000 litres per set of 2 elements). Elements may require replacement sooner based upon the quality of influent water.
  • Re-cleanable during the life of the element
  • Elements come with a 2-year, pro-rated warranty
  • Each Black Berkey® Element set has a filtration life of 22,000 Litres = 44,000 500 ml water bottles! 
  • That’s a retail cost of over $7000 for bottled water!
