Black Berkey Filters:

  • Black Berkey® Purification Elements are the leader in gravity-fed water purification, backed by independent testing
  • Powerful enough to remove most biological and chemical contaminants without removing beneficial minerals
  • Includes: Two 9″ Black Berkey® Purification Elements with 2 washers, 2 wing nuts, and 1 priming button
  • Sold as a set of 2 elements
  • You can also purchase one single black berkey filter!
  • Compatibility: Installs in the upper chamber of any Berkey system. Elements can also be used to upgrade most other gravity-fed water filter systems.
  • The Black Berkey® Purification Element formulation has been tested by USA State & EPA accredited laboratories to exceed EPA & ANSI/NSF (Std. 53) protocol.
  • Removes Bacteria, Chlorine, Chloramines, Heavy Metals, Pharmaceuticals and more
  • Each Black Berkey filter set has a filtration life of 22,000 liters 
  • Save money with Berkey! Instead of buying water bottles which would cost over $7,500 (44,000 – 500 ML bottles)
  • The filter is designed to purify approximately 3,000 gallons/11,000 liters (6,000 gallons/22,000 liters per set of two) before needing replacement– Depending on water source quality and usage, provide you with 3-5 years of efficient water purification.
  • That’s retail cost of over $7,500 for bottled water
  • Re-cleanable and self-sterilizing during the life of the element
  • Elements come with a 2-year, pro-rated warranty
  • Re-cleanable and self-sterilizing during the life of the element
  • Durable and efficient
  • Very economical- filters


Black Berkey® Purification Elements are more powerful than any other gravity filter element currently available. In fact, we tested the Black Berkey® purification elements with more than 10,000 times the concentration of pathogens per litre 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 litre (99.99% reduction – the requirement for pathogenic removal). Incredibly the purification elements removed 100%. Absolutely no pathogens were cultured from the effluent or were able to be detected, even under an electron microscope, setting a new standard in water purification.

Black Berkey® purification elements are so powerful, they can remove red food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Virtually no other filtration element can duplicate this performance.Because Black Berkey® purification elements fit most gravity filters, existing gravity filtration systems can be upgraded. This vastly improves their ability to remove unwanted contaminates. No need for expensive disposable filters. Black Berkey® purification elements are re-cleanable. When the flow rate decreases simply brush lightly the Black Berkey® purification elements with a ScotchBrite® pad or a vegetable brush under running water, reinstall and your system is again ready to purify water. Each durable and efficient filter will last for up to 3,000 gallons/11,000 liters (6,000 gallons/22,000 liters per set of two) and provide you with 3-5 years of efficient water purification.


Make an Informed Decision on the Quality of Your Drinking Water

We at Berkey Water Filter Canada want you to be educated about water purification. This will allow you to make an informed decision on something as important as the quality of your drinking water. Since water filtration is a complex science, we try to use familiar terms when possible so the explanation is easier to understand. Several methodologies are used to produce the Black Berkey® purification elements.


The first line of defense is that Berkey® purification elements are composed of a proprietary formulation of more than six different media types, all constructed into a very compact matrix containing millions of microscopic pores. These pores are so small that they produce what we refer to as a “Tortuous Path” that pathogenic bacteria, cysts, parasites, herbicides, pesticides, organic solvents, VOC’s, detergents, cloudiness, silt, sediment and sedimentary minerals, foul tastes and odors must travel through. These paths are so small that these pollutants physically cannot pass through them and become trapped, eliminating them from your drinking water. This process is known as microfiltration.


Secondly, our media formulation uses unique adsorption and absorption properties. Adsorption works to create an ionic barrier similar to surface tension. This barrier is perfectly suited to the micro-porous water filter because it effectively allows the tiny pores to block water contaminants that are smaller than the pore size itself. This blocking process is how the Berkey® water filter is able to remove submicron viruses that other brands of water filters cannot, without the use of obnoxious chemicals like iodine or chlorine. Next, the heavy metals ions (mineral molecules) such as cadmium, chromium, copper, lead, mercury, aluminum, and other dangerous heavy metals are extracted from the water through an Ion exchange process where they are attracted to and transformed by electrically bonding to the media.


Finally, Berkey® systems are so effective at removing contaminants from water because of the extremely long “contact period”. Other filtration systems rely on water pressure that forces water molecules through the elements at 60-90 PSI. These water molecules come into contact with the filter media for a mere fraction of a second. By comparison, water molecules passing through the structure of the Black Berkey®elements are drawn gently by gravity and stay in contact with the media for a long period of time. This allows the filter media to be more efficient in capturing contaminants. This advanced technology was developed, refined, and proven through years of diligent, investigative research and testing performed by water purification specialists, researchers, and engineers. The flow rate or time of exposure through the Black Berkey® purification elements has been calculated to yield the greatest volume of removal of potential contaminants in your water, no matter what the source.


The powerful  Black Berkey® purification elements also remove or reduce viruses, pathogenic bacteria, cysts, parasites, harmful or unwanted chemicals such as herbicides and pesticides, VOCs, detergents, organic solvents, trihalomethanes, cloudiness, silt, sediment, heavy metals, foul tastes, and odours, yet they leave in the healthful and beneficial minerals that your body needs.
