Each set of two Berkey PF-2™ Elements will last for approximately 1,000 gallons of water.
No the Black Berkey® Purification Elements fit into the base of the upper chamber with the threaded stems of the filters protruding through the holes in the base of the upper chamber. The PF-2™ filters screw onto these threaded stems so that the Berkey PF-2™’ Elements hang down into the interior of the lower chamber. The water […]
No, in order to reduce fluoride in your water, you will still need to use post filters that work in conjunction with the filters in your system. We have two types of post filters: the Berkey PF-2™ Elements which are used in conjunction with the Black Berkey® purification elements, and the Berkey PF-4™ Elements that are […]
In the past the Berkey Light® systems were made of food grade polycarbonate that was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration. Some research suggests that polycarbonates have been known to leach BPA (Bisphenol-A) when either exposed to High Strength Industrial Grade Alkaline Detergents or when they are repeatedly exposed to temperatures in excess of […]
No, the unique ceramic filtering system reduces unhealthy organic chemical contaminants and impurities while leaving in most of the beneficial minerals your body needs.
Replace the elements when the carbon has been exhausted or if there is a significant change in diameter of the ceramic after cleaning. Anytime a crack in the ceramic occurs, the integrity has been lost and the filter must be replaced.
If the time it takes for the water to filter into the lower chamber substantially decreases, the flow rate can be easily renewed by cleaning the ceramic filter. Follow these simple steps: Carefully remove the Super Sterasyl™ Element from the upper chamber. Using a soft toothbrush or soft scouring pad (3M Scotch-Brite® or similar), scrub […]
The Super Sterasyl™ Ceramic Shell The Super Sterasyl™ grade ceramic is designed to remove suspended solids and pathogenic bacteria (>99.99%). The filter elements are produced using the latest ceramic techniques to provide a hollow porous ceramic, which is fired at a temperature in excess of 1,000º C. They are designed to operate with water flow going from […]
TECHNICAL INFORMATION In the shower environment, chlorine can either be in liquid or gas state. At higher water temperatures in the enclosed shower stall, free-chlorine moves from the liquid to the gas state, where it vaporizes and subsequently is inhaled. The United States regulates all showerhead flow at 2.5 gallons per minute. Thus, the science […]
