British Berkefeld® / Big Berkey® Water Filters
Please note: Berkey purifier systems (and component parts) are not available for sale to California or Iowa, although the shower filters ARE available. The manufacturer deems certification requirements in those states to be so costly and/or burdensome that meeting them is unworkable. We're as frustrated as you are about this situation. Remedies are being sought but will, at best, take time. Testing by independent laboratories (as well as hundreds of thousands of highly satisfied users) has established that Berkey systems provide superior purification and superior water.

The Ceramic Berkey filter systems are less popular than the Black Filter systems, so if you prefer the older systems, or don't see a Berkey product you would like, please email or call us for details and ordering information.



Big Berkey® Water Filter
with Super Sterasyl Ceramic Filter Elements

Generations of health-conscious people around the world have recognized clean, fresh drinking water as a key foundation of a healthy life and healthy body. No amount of vitamins or supplements can substitute for the vital life-sustaining properties of nourishing, healthful drinking water. Along with nutritious food and clean air, clean water is truly essential to life.

Unfortunately, good tasting, sparkling, wholesome
drinking water isn't as common as it once was. Water is often laced with chlorine, lead, high levels of harmful bacteria, and other unwanted chemicals and contaminants that can threaten health and produce unpleasant tastes and odors. Even expensive bottled water can contain these same contaminants. Distillation deoxygenates water, creating a flat taste. Many water treatment systems don't adequately remove pathogenic bacteria, and many remove the beneficial minerals that your body needs.

Berkey® Systems are the world's standard in economical
gravity water filtration and purification systems, providing incredibly clean, pure water in both normal and hostile environments. Berkey® systems can purify both treated water and untreated raw water from such sources as remote lakes, streams, stagnant ponds, and water supplies in foreign countries with substandard regulations.

Berkey® Water Products are divided into two categories: Filters and Purifiers. The difference between filters and purifiers is defined by the EPA: A filter must be capable of "Log 4" contaminant reduction, and a purifier must be capable of a "Log 7" contaminant reduction. Log 4 (simple filtration) means at least 99.99% of contaminants are removed, leaving no more than 1 part per ten thousand of the original contaminant.

  • The systems shown on this page are equipped with ceramic filter elements and offer the "filtration level" of contaminant reduction. Ceramic filtration is entirely sufficient for many conditions.

  • The higher "purification" reduction of Log 7 means that 99.99999% of contaminants are removed, leaving no more than 1 part per ten million of the original contaminant (1000x the effectiveness of the "filter" specification.) Berkey® Systems using Black Berkey® purifying elements achieve the "purifier level" of performance will provide ultra-pure water not only in normal conditions, but also in circumstances of extreme and highly dangerous contamination.

Berkey® Water Filters in Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is the classic look of Berkey® water systems. Equipped with Super Sterasyl ceramic filtration elements, the stainless steel Berkey® water filter has filtered water for millions of people around the globe for decades. The wide range of available sizes makes a stainless system ideal for many Berkey® users; the most popular size by far is the "Big Berkey®".

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 purify up to 2000 gallons, depending on water turbidity (so using four elements, total gallonage would be up to 8000 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. Filtration rate is 1 gallon per hour for the 4-filter unit and 1/2 gallon per hour for the 2-filter unit. 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!

The SS-4 and SS-2 models are identical except
for the number of filter elements they come with. If you buy an SS-4 you can removed two elements, plugging the holes with the provided rubber plugs, and operate it exactly as if you'd bought the SS-2 (while having two spare filter elements.) Likewise, you can purchase the SS-2 and increase filtration speed later by adding two more elements if you wish. Dimensions are 8"W x 19"H assembled, 8"W x 13.5"H nested for storage. Upper tank holds 1.7 gallons when four of the 9" filter elements are in use, and capacity of the lower tank is 2 gallons (we've seen other capacities claimed; these are our measurements.)

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.

for Berkey Water Filter Systems

Replacement Ceramic Filter Elements for Berkey Water Filters

Super Sterasyl Ceramic Filter Elements are the world's finest ceramic filtration elements, impregnated with pure silver to be self-sterilizing. Flow rate will depend somewhat on which system they are in (Big Berkey, Royal Berkey, Imperial Berkey or Crown Berkey) because the deeper reservoirs of the larger systems create greater water pressure against the ceramic elements. Each element will purify up to 2000 gallons, depending on water turbidity (silt, etc.)
Ceramic Element 9" Single$50.00
Ceramic Element 7" Single$42.00

PF-4 - (MTBE, Fluoride, Arsenic and Lead) Reduction Filters:

These screw onto the underside of the Super Sterasyl® ceramic elements, inside the fresh water tank, and reduce fluoride and arsenic. 2 will typically treat 1000 gallons of water.
Sold as set of four.

Berkey® Shower Filter

Berkey® Shower Filter

The KDF Shower Filter will typically last 10,000 gallons or one year whichever comes first. The shower filter contains KDF 55 granules, which are most effective in removing or reducing chlorine, hydrogen sulfide, microorganisms, scale and water-soluble heavy metals such as lead, mercury, and iron. KDF process media also kill bacteria and inhibit the growth of bacteria, algae, and fungi. As an added benefit, KDF media reduce lime scale, mold, and fungi in your shower. KDF process media are completely safe so the process is not toxic and does not cause any adverse side effects.
