Big Berkey Water Filter

The Big Berkey is the water purification system I recommend to patients.  See the full description and all of the chemicals the Berkey filters out of tap water.

Order the Big Berkey by clicking on the link/picture below and make sure to add the additional fluoride filters.

The Berkey filters are so powerful, they can remove food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Virtually no other filtration element can duplicate this performance.

No need for expensive disposable filters. Berkey purification elements are re-cleanable. When the flow rate decreases simply brush the Black Berkey purification elements with a ScotchBrite pad under running water, reinstall and your system is again ready to purify water. Each durable and efficient purification element will last for up to 3,000 gallons (6,000 gallons per set of two) and provide years of efficient water purification. What’s more, the unique Berkey purification elements are self-sterilizing.  Please use our filter calculator to determine how long the Black Berkey filters will last in your system before needing replacement.

The powerful Berkey purification elements also remove or reduce pathogenic cysts, parasites, harmful or unwanted chemicals such as herbicides and pesticides, VOCs, detergents, organic solvents, trihalomethanes, cloudiness, silt, sediment, nitrites, heavy metals, foul tastes and odors, yet they leave in the healthful and beneficial minerals that your body needs.

Fluoride
Black Berkey filters do not remove fluoride. Berkey makes a fluoride filter called the PF-2 that can be added on to the Black filters.  For more information about the PF-2 fluoride filters, click here.

The Black Berkey purification element formulation has been tested by State & EPA accredited laboratories to exceed NSF/ANSI Standard 53.
