The British Berkefeld water filter shares many characteristics with the Rolls Royce automobile. Both are old marques, both are made in Great Britain, and each, in its respective field, represents the pinnacle of quality. The British Berkefeld water filter uses ceramic "Super Sterasyl" filters to reduce up to 99.99% of particulates, cysts, parasites and pathogenic bacteria including but not limited to E. Coli, Cryptosporidium, Giardia and Salmonella Typhi. These filters will reduce chlorine, rust, sediment and organic chemicals with nominal particulate filtration rating efficiencies of 99.99% filtration at 0.9 microns, 99.9% at 0.5 microns, and 98% at 0.2 microns.
The durable ceramic filter elements can be cleaned many times with a soft brush or Scotch Brite pad. Each element will filter up to 535 gallons, depending on water turbidity (so using four elements, total gallonage would be up to 2140 gallons.) If you're filtering water from a cloudy stream or lake, you'll get somewhat less gallonage before you need to replace the elements, compared to filtering tap or rain water. These filters work by gravity, so no electricity is required. Easy to follow assembly and operating instructions are included. Housing is gleaming, hygienic stainless steel. British Berkefeld water filter design follows the "KISS Principle" of simplicity!
Optional PF-4 Reduction Elements: The optional PF-4 elements are designed to be used in conjunction with the standard filter elements. They reduce MTBE, fluoride, lead and arsenic. They are attached on the underside of the upper (reservoir) tank, directly underneath each of the standard filter elements that are attached inside the reservoir. (To further clarify the PF-4 installation, this means that the PF-4 filter elements are positioned within the filtered-water tank, and when the filtered-water tank is full, the PF-4 elements will be submerged.)
British Berkefeld water filters have previously been distributed under the name "Royal Doulton Water Filter." The filters are functionally identical under either name. For durable, proven, foolproof delivery of extremely pure water, the British Berkefeld water filter has been the ultimate answer for many years, and remains so.
Please note: British Berkefeld water filter systems are not yet available for shipment to Iowa (though they certainly may be used in Iowa.) Some systems can be shipped to California, while others cannot. There are no restrictions on actual use of any British Berkefeld system in any state.
