  • 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.

The media within Black Berkey® elements removes contaminants by a surface phenomenon called adsorption, the molecular attraction of substances to the surface of the media. The exclusive purification elements are also impregnated with proprietary media that promote ionic absorption of pollutants within the micro-porous elements. A key reason Berkey systems are so effective in removing contaminants from water is their long contact period. Most systems blast water through their filters at high pressure, which limits contact with their filter media to only a fraction of a second. Water molecules passing through the revolutionary micro-porous structure of the Black Berkey purification elements are drawn gently by gravity and remain in contact with the trapping media for several minutes. This multiplies the Black Berkey filter media's ability to capture contaminants.

  • “I've owned the Berkey System for four years and love how the water tastes. It saves me money since I no longer need to buy bottled water. These Berkey purifier elements last me about two years.”

    – Geneva A., VA

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, 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? 

  • “I would recommend to anyone needing Berkey products, to order through Pleasant Hill Grain.”

    – Audrey R., TX

Black Berkey elements come in one size only. The pair of elements on this page are sold without a Berkey water chamber.

Soft water: The Black Berkey® purification elements are designed to remove heavy metals, but will not remove mineral salts, which are added by a water softener. The salt used to soften water will not be extracted by the Black Berkey® element. We recommend that you use softened water directly from the source rather than running it through the Black Berkey® elements.

Please note: Replacement Black Berkey water purifier elements are available for shipment to all U.S. states.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • One of the best purchases I have ever made
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I bought my Berkey over a year ago and I love it. I used to buy bottled water and so I have saved alot of money since buying the Berkey. I drink a lot of water and the taste of the Berkey water is really good.

  • The only water for me!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    We have funky stuff in our water and I feel great about drinking this water and serving it to others. Hope I never have to be without them. We also have the fluoride filters. Pleasant Hill Grain employees live up to the "Pleasant" name.

  • H2O peace of mind
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Have had a Big Berkey for eight years and I just did its first filter change. Amazing! We have good water but a power outage leaves us with no water. With the Big Berkey I can feel good about getting drinking water from a nearby stream. And, to keep it ready, we filter water daily for our coffee maker (helps keep it clean & the coffee tasty) and our drinking water. Coffee & tea drinks love it! Pleasant Hill's the best!
