Berkey Light Gravity-Flow Water Filter


Gravity filters are more effective than other types of water filter, because the water drips slowly through the ceramic elements, and this process removes almost all the contaminants in water. The filters can be cleaned with a toothbrush and last for up to 2,000 gallons. This Berkey filters filter uses Black Berkey elements, and they are self-sterilizing. The Berkey filters remove or reduce pathogenic cysts, parasites, harmful or unwanted chemicals such as herbicides and pesticides, VOC’s, SOC’s detergents, organic solvents, trihalomethanes, cloudiness, silt, sediment, nitrates, nitrites, heavy metals, foul tastes and odors. Yet they leave in beneficial minerals.

  1. I have been researching all kinds of filters, but especially those that do not need any type of external energy so they are still useful when TSHTF events happen. Most filters do not give you any info on lab results as to what bacteriological or viral entities they can filter out. That omission means they either haven’t had lab tests done and hope you are satisfied with better tasting or looking water OR they have had the tests done and didn’t like the results. The best filters used to be the Berkefeld filters that were used in bad conditions all over the world by many famous organizations. They are still good for most water. The best is the Black Berkey filters, and they show their lab tests. I am getting together my survival gear, and that was one of my first purchases – I use it in my home, and it’s portable.
