Note: Not available in Iowa.The purification elements used in Berkey systems are called Black Berkey purification elements. Each Berkey system we sell comes with these elements. However they do need to eventually be replaced and some systems allow you to add additional elements to speed the number of gallons you can purify per hour.
These are the elements that you put into the top canister of your Berkey system. The Fluoride reducing elements, if you choose to add them, are attached to these and are placed in the bottom canister of the system.
These fit the following Berkey systems: GoBerkey, Travel Berkey, Big Berkey, Royal Berkey, Imperial Berkey, Crown Berkey, and Berkey Light.
Black Berkey Purification Elements are more powerful than any other gravity filter element currently available. 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. The powerful Black Berkey purification elements also remove or reduce viruses, pathogenic cysts, parasites, harmful or unwanted chemicals such as herbicides and pesticides, VOCs, detergents, organic solvents, trihalomethanes, cloudiness, silt, sediment, nitrates, nitrites, heavy metals, foul tastes and odors, yet they leave in the healthful and beneficial minerals that your body needs.
