About Berkey Filter Systems


Berkey Filter systems & purifiers will now allow you to enjoy the most delicious, freshest, healthiest possible drinking water for just cents a day. In the long run, this will save you money! You will also be helping the environment and reduce plastic waste.

Natural Berkey Water Filter Systems are the ultimate in water purification and the ideal personal protection and traveling companions. Used worldwide for normal, hostile and emergency environments to provide the purest, sparkling clean water possible…

For generations, health-conscious people around the world have recognized that the foundation of a healthy life and healthy body is clean, fresh drinking water. This important essential molecule is the basis for enjoying your longest, healthiest life. Water is the most essential part of human life.

No amount of vitamins or supplements can substitute for the vital, life-sustaining properties found in nourishing, healthful drinking water. It is truly the foundation of life.

Unfortunately, securing your access to good tasting, sparkling, wholesome drinking water can be harder than you might expect. Water is often laced with chlorine, lead, high levels of harmful bacteria and other unwanted chemicals and contaminants. Frequently these produce unpleasant tastes and odors. Even bottled water can contain these same contaminants and moreover bottled water is very expensive. Other filtration systems are inferior. Most do not remove viruses, pathogenic bacteria and many remove the beneficial minerals that your body needs.

Perhaps that’s why Berkey Filter systems have long been regarded in water purification as the ultimate in the world. Almost 200 years ago, this basic, highly effective method of using gravity was invented… and it still produces some of the finest, most nutritious drinking water available.

These powerful Berkey Water Filter systems purify both treated water and untreated raw water from such sources as remote lakes, streams, stagnant ponds and water supplies in foreign countries, where regulations may be substandard at best. Perfect for outdoor activities and a must in hostile environments where electricity, water pressure or treated water may not be available.

Berkey Filter systems remove viruses, pathogenic bacteria, cysts, and parasites while extracting chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, trihalomethanes, volatile organic compounds (VOC’s), organic solvents, detergents, cloudiness, silt, sediment, foul tastes, and odors.
Berkey Filter systems are so powerful they can remove red food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Virtually no other system can duplicate this performance.

How Berkey Filter System Operate


Water is poured into the Berkey Filter system’s upper chamber for use. Gravity pulls this water into the exclusive purification components, where pollutants are extracted and removed from the water on and inside these micro-porous elements. In the lower chamber, the filtered water then accumulates where it can be drawn through the spigot.
What’s more, Berkey elements are cleanable and can be used over and over again. The berkey saves you money 🙂

Can I use the Berkey® system with softened water?


Will a Berkey® system work with a water softener? 

The Black Berkey® purification elements are designed to remove heavy metals, but will not remove mineral salts, which are added by a water softener. The salt used to soften water will not be extracted by the Black Berkey® element. You can use one of our purification systems on a regular basis by bypassing your water softener to get your drinking water. Most water softeners have a bypass valve or way to get water before it passes through your softener. Therefore, we highly recommend that you obtain pre-softened water directly from the source rather than run softened water through your Black Berkey® Elements.
