FAQ- When will Black Berkey Elements be available?

Black Berkey® REPLACEMENT Elements will remain unavailable until Berkey Water Systems reaches a favorable outcome in the court case against the EPA. This could take several weeks or months. (as of April 2024)

As an alternative, Use either our Ultra Sterasyl or Ultra Fluoride water filters by Doulton that perform equally to the Black Berkey Elements. The Doulton water filters will ship from Canada via US Postal System

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION; While the system can
efficiently purify raw untreated water, always use the cleanest, clearest water possible.  As an additional precaution, if using a source of water that you believe might contain extreme viral and bacteriological contamination, it recommended by the CDC, EPA and other organizations that approximately 16 drops of plain bleach (sodium hypochlorite) or iodine per gallon to treat the source water before purifying.

This should kill minute pathogens such as viruses in approximately 30 minutes. The disinfectant will then be removed after cycling the treated water through the Berkey System.
