Looking for clearly better water wherever you go? Berkey water filtration systems are among the world’s top-rated water purification systems and are ideal when space is at a premium.
The Berkey water filter uses gravity water filtration technology to remove toxic elements from your drinking water. It also preserves the beneficial minerals naturally present in your water and operates without electricity.
Microfine particulates such as bacteria, viruses, and even food colouring particulate cannot pass through micro-fine pores in the filter. However, much smaller H2O molecules can easily pass through. The Berkey method ensures that viruses and other contaminants are kept out of your drinking water.
Berkey filters use technology that will not remove ionic minerals from the water. The media formulation within the filter does not have an affinity for beneficial minerals such as calcium and magnesium, allowing them to pass through the filter while keeping heavy metals and other contaminants out.
The Berkey filter has been tested to remove different bacteria, heavy metals, pathogens, and viral contaminants from drinking water. You do not have to boil tap water for fresh drinking water after running it through the Berkey system during a boil water advisory or natural disaster.
Yes! Simply wash the lower chamber once per month with soapy dishwater. If your area has hard water, calcium scale might build up upon the chambers and spigot. You can remove it by soaking the affected parts in vinegar or a 50/50 water-vinegar mix for about 15 minutes. Wipe away the calcium scale with a scouring pad or soft brush, then wash the parts with soapy dishwater and rinse.
