Black Berkey Replacement Elements BF2 (Set of 2)
Berkey® systems utilize advanced and powerful filters that we call our "Black Berkey® filter elements". The Black Berkey® filters used in all of our systems take water filtration to a whole new level! During testing conducted by independent, EPA-approved laboratories, the Black Berkey® filtered out a long list of water contaminants with never-before-seen results and significantly raised the standard for the water filter industry. As a result, Black Berkey® filters are some of the most efficient filters available on the market. A pair of Black Berkey® Filters comes standard in all of Berkey® Water Filter Systems, including the Big Berkey®.
- POWERFUL PURIFICATION- Berkey systems equipped with Black Berkey Purification Elements purify water—not just filter it—by addressing over 200+ contaminants in tap water or raw, untreated freshwater sources like ponds, rivers and streams.
- ECONOMICAL, LONG-LASTING- A pair of Black Berkey Purification Elements lasts for up to 6,000 gallons before needing replacement. Each additional pair of elements (sold separately) adds an additional 6,000 gallons of purification power to your system. Elements not for use with saltwater sources or softened water.
- INDEPENDENT TESTING- Berkey by NMCL uses several independent third-party labs to test a broad range of potential contaminants, and has conducted Extreme Testing for lead and PFCs in order to show the effectiveness of our Black Berkey Purification Elements.
- AMERICAN PRODUCT- Black Berkey Purification Elements are made and assembled in the USA.
When drinking water that’s been filtered using a Black Berkey® filter, you can rest assured that your water is clean and safe for consumption. In fact, Black Berkey® purifier elements are far more powerful compared to competitors’ water filters. We tested the filters with more than 10,000 times the concentration of harmful pathogens per liter of water than is required by industry-standard test protocols. This concentration of pathogens is so high that the water exiting the filters should be expected to contain a concentration of 100,000 or more pathogens per liter (99.99% reduction — the requirement in order to be classified for pathogenic removal). Incredibly, Black Berkey® water filter elements removed 100% of the pathogens. After using the Black Berkey® filters, absolutely no pathogens were found in the effluent or were able to be detected. This set a new standard, allowing us to classify all systems containing the Black Berkey® filters as purifiers.
The revolutionary Black Berkey® purifier elements are so powerful that they can remove food coloring from water without removing any of the beneficial minerals your body needs.
The Black Berkey® filter element had extensive testing at state- and EPA-accredited laboratories and far exceed EPA and ANSI/NSF (Std. 53) protocol. The Black Berkey® filters have been tested by the University of Phoenix, Spectrum Labs, and the Department of Toxicology and Environmental Science at Louisiana University.
Because the versatile filters fit most other manufacturers’ gravity water filtration systems, off-brand gravity filtration systems can be upgraded to a purifier with little effort simply by replacing original filter elements with Black Berkey® filter elements. This high-quality replacement filter vastly improves other brands’ housings’ ability to remove unwanted water contaminants.
Black Berkey® Filters can be used on almost any water source, however, we do recommend always using the cleanest water source possible. Please note Berkey® filters are not designed to be used with salt or softened water. Using the filters with salt of softened water will drastically shorten their lifespan and void their warranty.
Each Black Berkey® filter element has a life of 3,000 gallons: That’s an incredible 6,000 gallons for a two-filter system (less than 2 cents per gallon of water). This is possible because of the Black Berkey® filter elements’ unique ability to be cleaned up to 100 times using a 3M Scotch-Brite pad.
