  • Purifies to incredible 99.99999% standard
  • Doesn't rely on moving parts or electricity
  • Removes contaminents without losing beneficial minerals
  • Each element can purify up to 3000 gallons of water
  • Ideal solution for virus-contaminated water supplies


Black Berkey® purifier elements are the world's most powerful gravity filtering solution, certified to eliminate pathogenic bacteria to the EPA's "7 Log" purification standard of 99.99999% reduction. Elements are easily cleanable with a Scotch Brite® pad under running water, and each element will purify up to 3000 gallons of water (6000 gallons per set of two.) The Black Berkey filter formulation has been tested by state & EPA accredited laboratories.

  • “We have tried out a number of different elements, and feel the Black Berkey filters provide the taste and protection we want from a water filter, and they last a long time.”

    – Lawrence F., TX

In addition to their phenomenal reduction of pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites, the powerful Black Berkey purification elements also remove or reduce harmful or unwanted chemicals such as herbicides and pesticides, VOCs, detergents, organic solvents, trihalomethanes, cloudiness, silt, sediment, nitrates, nitrites, heavy metals, foul tastes and odors. Even viruses are removed, down to 25 nanometers. Yet they leave in the water the healthful and beneficial minerals your body needs.

Order for replacement or upgrade: Each Black Berkey purifier system comes equipped with some number of elements. Please see purifier system descriptions for the number of elements that can be installed in, and the number of elements that are included with, each system. For systems that can accept additional elements, installing more will increase flow rate. Other gravity water purifier systems can also be retrofitted with Black Berkey elements to bring them up to the highest possible standard of contaminant reduction and efficiency. We recommend carrying at least one spare set of Black Berkey elements to assure your supply of clean, safe water.

Clean-ability makes Black Berkey water purifier elements one of the most economical ways to purify your water. Why throw money away on expensive noncleanable elements that have to be pitched frequently, when each set of two Black Berkey elements produces up to 6000 gallons of super pure water? 

  • “Love Berkey and Pleasant Hill Grain Company! Price and process very easy!”

  • Lung infection, must be careful about quality of water I drink. Rate this exceptional!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Can't drink bottled waters or regular tap water. This has been so good for me. It is easy to use, no plug ins, and I try to keep the filters changed 6 mos to a year, but for those who do not have my problem, the filters last longer, I just take extra precaution.

  • Thankful for our Berkey
    By on - Verified Buyer
    The filters only last about a year..... seem kind of pricey but we like the water from the Berkey so we will save up for the yearly investment.

  • I trust my Berkey filtered water
    By on - Verified Buyer
    The way things are these days, I don't use anything but my Berkey filtered water. Have been using the Berkey stainless steel canisters for over ten years now and the entire system has always worked perfectly for me.

  • Black Berkey Water Purifier Elements
    By on - Verified Buyer
    My family has enjoyed our Berkey water purifer for several years now, and I always buy the Black Berkey elements from Pleasant Hill Grain. We need to filter the drinking water we use because of the repeated water breaks our area experiences. I do clean the filters pretty regularly, per the instructions, but the task doesn't take very long. It's hard to drink the tap water at someone else's house, when there is no Berkey sitting out on the counter.

  • Perfect Supplemental Water Purification Source
    By on - Verified Buyer
    We've used the Berkey for at least 7 years now and are very happy with this additional pure water source in our home. I wash a lot of produce & need purified water for the final rinse & the Berkey is perfect. I also use this water for cooking & tea. The elements do last an unbelievably long time.

  • Berkey Black Elements
    By on - Verified Buyer
    These make the best tasting and smelling water I have ever had! I used to hate drinking water, but the pure taste and smoothness of the water, make it my go-to choice for a beverage. Was just on a trip and took Berkey water with me, I simply can't not have it! Highly recommend these to anyone I see.
