Black Berkey filter elements reduce heavy metals, chemical contaminations, pesticides, residues of medicines and chlorine. Also, sediment, san and rust particles are blocked. Bacteria, viruses and Trihalomethanes are reduced by more than 99%. At the same time, Black Berkey filter elements preserve the beneficial minerals in the drinking water.
After the filters have been used for a while, the exterior of the elements may get clogged by sediment and other contaminants from the source water. This will reduce the flow rate. Black Berkey filter elements can be easily cleaned with a scourer sponge to restore their original performance.
Berkey water purifiers provide you with safe drinking water. For optimal results it is important to always use the best source of water that is available. Flowing water from a stream is usually better than still water from a pond. Also, visible contaminants like sand and leaves should be removed before pouring the water into the filter. This way, the filter elements are not unnecessarily stressed.
