Includes two 9" Black Berkey® Purification Elements with two washers, two wing nuts, and one priming button per Black Berkey Element. Installs in the upper chamber of any Berkey system. Elements can also be used to upgrade most other gravity-fed water filter systems. Each Black Berkey Element is designed to purify approximately 3,000 gallons of water before needing replacement. The two elements in a Berkey system will purify approximately 6,000 gallons of water before replacement is recommended.
The Berkey Water Filter System is such a powerful system exactly because of the Black BB9 Berkey Filter elements. All Berkey Water Filter Systems use these Black Berkey Replacement Filters. The Berkey Filter elements has been thoroughly tested in government certified laboratories to NSF 53 and NSF 42 National Water Purity Standards. The test results demonstrate that the Berkey Replacement Filter element is arguably the most powerful gravity water filter on the market.
You can be confident in the quality of the water you drink when it's been filtered through a Black Berkey Filter element. The Black Berkey Filters are more powerful than any other gravity fed filter available. Each Black Berkey Filter is cleanable, just use a nylon scrub pad and rub the surface vigorously (don't worry if you see black... it's designed to be scrubbed hard), re-prime the Berkey Filter and it's ready to go again. Each Black Berkey Filter element will deliver up to 3,000 gallons of pure Berkey Filtered Water.
The powerful Black Berkey Filter elements also remove or reduce a long list of unwanted conatminants including viruses, pathogenic cysts, parasites, chemicals such as herbicides and pesticides, VOCs, detergents, organic solvents, cloudiness, trihalomethanes, silt, sediment, heavy metals, foul tastes and odors, yet they leave in the healthful and beneficial minerals that your body can benefit from.
