Many of you have asked how to filter water, without boiling it. The Black Berkey Elements are water purifiers! Here you will find out what I use and how well they work for me. Quick comment, I was asked by a sub, whether the filters needed to be primed? Yes ABSOLUTELY, they come with a rubber gasket that is tan in color, to do the job before you use them for the first time in the Berkey.
From a filtration perspective, the Black Berkey’s filter out the same chemicals and contaminants that the Super Sterasyl Ceramic Filters do, but go above and beyond by removing Lead, MTBE’s, and other heavy metals. In addition, since the Black Berkey’s are water purifiers, they filter out bacteria to a 99.99999% level and viruses to a 99.9999% level. The black Berkeys also filter out Chlorine to undetectable levels, while the ceramic will only remove 90%.
Black Berkeys last approx 6000 gallons per set of 2
Note: My mistake the larger of the two Berkeys I have shown is the Imperial Berkey NOT the Crown Berkey.
