Berkey contaminant list
The Berkey black filter was developed to go
beyond what the ceramic Doulton was capable of as
more and more contaminants entered our water supply. The newer black filter not only removes
protozoa and bacteria but at .025 microns, also removes chemicals, viruses, heavy metals, fertilizers
and a long list of additional contaminants from your drinking water including many pharmaceutical
drugs people flush down the sink that end up in the municipal water supply. The Berkey black filters
also flouride, chlorine and and chloramines. I don;t know of any other filters which remove chloramines.
Black Berkey purification elements significantly raised the bar to a level that no other gravity flow water
filters are currently able to attain.
