Berkey® Water Filters

Berkey® water filters are gravity flow systems that incorporate Berkey® ‘elements’ (filter cartridges) with outstanding water purification capabilities. Berkey® filters require no electricity or pressurized water delivery, making them an exceptional choice for outdoor use and emergency situations as well as for day-to-day use. They can be used to filter both municipally treated water and untreated raw water from sources such as lakes, streams, stagnant ponds and questionable water supplies in foreign countries.

Berkey® durable water purifiers are constructed of easy-to-clean, high quality 304 stainless steel. Compare 6 sizes of stainless water filters to find the one that best meets your needs.

Berkey® replacement filter cartridges are called ‘elements’. They are capable of filtering pathogenic bacteria, and parasite cysts. They can extract harmful chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, VOCs, organic solvents, radon 222 and trihalomethanes. They also reduce nitrates, nitrites and heavy metals such as lead and mercury.  They are so effective that they can remove food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Each purifying element can filter up to 3000 gallons of water!

All Berkey® filtration systems are standard equipped with 2 purification elements (except for the compact Go Berkey® Kit which houses one element only). Most models can incorporate additional elements, if needed, for faster yields of purified water.
