Black Berkey Purification Elements Replacement Filters (Set of 2)
Black Berkey Purification Elements may be called a Berkey water purifier because they remove not only bacteria and parasites but also viruses, >99.999%.
The unique Black Berkey elements combine the age-old process of micro-porous filtration coupled with modern state-of-the-art technology and the highest quality materials to bring you the finest water purification system available anywhere.
The micro-pores within the cleanable Black Berkey purification elements are so small that pathogenic bacteria are simply not able to pass through them.
Facts on the Black Berkey Purification Elements:
- Leader in gravity-fed water purification
- Its formulation has been tested by State and EPA accredited laboratories to exceed NSF/ANSI Standard 53

Doctors recommend people to drink 8-10 glasses of water a day. But this logical elucidation has no evidence or proof that this is true. Still, drinking water when we feel thirsty somehow rehydrates our body, especially during the summer season.
As time passes by, bottled water is preferred over natural water sources by most people worldwide. But not all bottled waters are safe to drink; there are some that are contaminated by dangerous disease-causing bacteria and unwanted chemicals.
When these contaminated water existed, products about purifying water also emerged like as our Berkey Water Filter and the heart of Berkey is the Black Berkey Water Filter Element.
What is Black Berkey Water Filter Element?
Black Berkey Water Element is a water purifier that removes 100% of pathogens and any unwanted toxins in the water. Each Berkey can carry or filter water up to 3,000 gallons and a set of 2 filters can purify water up to an incredible of 6,000 gallons.
Because of the Black Berkey filters’ versatility, it fits off-brand gravity filtration systems and gravity water filters that can be raised to a purifier with less effort. This excellent value replacement filter massively develops other housing trademarks ability to eradicate unwanted water chemicals.
The innovative Berkey purifier elements are so powerful or dominant that they can eradicate food coloring from any source of water without eliminating any of the helpful minerals your physique needs.
How Does Black Berkey Work and What are Their Elements Made Out of?
Numerous procedures are applied by the Black Berkey purification elements. These elements are made out from a formulation of additional half a dozen of various media types fabricated into an adequate matrix generating millions of micro-fine pores.
Tiny pores are effective that’s why cysts, parasites, sediments, sedimentary minerals and pathogenic bacteria cannot pass through them. The media construction both "adsorbs" other impurities and "absorbs" some impurities.
Heavy mineral molecules or metals ions are removed with the use of an ion exchange process wherein metal ions are basically electrically merged to the media.
Last but not the least, the filter elements are planned in such a way that each water molecule can yield a few minutes to pass through the filter components whereas these particles passing through other filtration or purification systems pass through the filters in accurate microseconds.
The longer the water particles are in connection with any media, the higher the deduction of the various impurities.
How Long is the Usage of the Black Berkey Purification Elements?
The Black Berkey will last a lifetime if you know how to maintain them.
It is suggested that if you want to keep your Black Berkey for a long period of time, put them in a zip-lock bag. Zip-lock bags are sufficiently powerful to enthrall contaminants or toxins from the air, which could lessen their projected life if it has a lot of aerial contaminants in the area in which they are being kept. A zip-lock back will avoid the above from happening.
Priming of Black Berkey Elements for Storage
A person can enjoy their Black Berkey Water Filter if it is primed before using. No need to worry because it only takes a few minutes to do the priming and it is straightforward and very easy.
Priming before keeping will allow you to experiment the Black Berkey and prove that there are no deficiencies with the product.
Priming is required because of its extremely tiny pores that create the filter whether you are using a Royal Berkey, Berkey Light, or any of the other Berkey systems that consume the Black Berkey purification element.
These components need to have force when water is entered through its filter to clear the air that has been ensnared inside the micro fine pores during its process.
Start by opening up your very own Black Berkey box and confirm that each component has a wing nut and elastic washer attached to it. A tan elastic washer, a priming button, can also be seen inside the box and it is thicker than the component washer with a minor center hole.
Is Black Berkey Recyclable?
It is not recommended that you recycle Black Berkey Purification Elements. Its shells are made of Polypropylene which is Recycle Code 5.
Uses of Polypropylene include yogurt containers, catsup bottles, medicine bottles and margarine tubs.
To recycle, one would have to cut the component open and eliminate the material before recycling the malleable shell. Furthermore, both of these types of elements are in no way of knowing what impurities are in the media after use.
Berkey Purification systems extract harmful elements, but it retains the minerals that are considered beneficial for our health. It removes lead, iron oxide, and mercury, but makes sure that you still get the minerals that your body needs from water, unlike Reverse Osmosis Water Filters.
While a Reverse Osmosis Water Filter eliminate harmful chemicals from the contaminated water, it also strips off the healthy minerals. As this cycle continues, negative effects on our body start to develop.
Healthy Minerals Stay, Harmful Ones Removed
Berkey was designed to eliminate only the dangerous chemicals from the water. Its main goal is to purposely retain the healthy minerals. Filtered water from Berkey ensures that you will be free from body demineralization.
One of the most important benefits of Berkey is its ability to remove pathogenic bacteria. This feature makes it rise above the other filtering systems. In reverse osmosis systems, pathogenic bacteria are not removed. The reverse osmosis system alone does not make you free from e-coli and giardia. It needs UV light technology to kill the bacteria. The process involving the installation of the UV light in the reverse osmosis systems is another venue for bacteria colonization. The bacteria therefore can sill thrive to the supposedly distilled water. This cannot be considered safe for you and your family to drink.
Berkey water filters sets the standards in the removal of viruses and purification of water. It works in eliminating cysts, parasites, unwanted chemicals, and pathogenic bacteria to undetectable levels. Berkey was made to remove mercury and lead from contaminated water. It purposefully gets rid of the toxic chemicals and metals yet retains the nutritional elements naturally found in clean water.
A great percentage of the world’s population does not have access to clean water. They do not only lack minerals from food, but are also nutritionally depleted because of contaminated water. You can avoid malnutrition in your own home by using safe and trusted filtering systems. We can make use of all our water sources, but we can only utilize a safe filtration system.
