Black Berkey Filter
September 2011, New Millennium Concepts introduced a new improved Black Berkey water filter design. The new design incorporates a new filter base and adhesive that insures a very secure bond, making the new Black Berkey filter more rugged and less likely to separate at the base. All new orders as of September 2011 will ship with the new Black Berkey filter.
Black Berkey filter purification elements are so powerful, they can remove food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Virtually no other filtration element can duplicate this performance.
The powerful Black Berkey filter purification elements also remove or reduce pathogenic cysts, parasites, harmful or unwanted chemicals such as herbicides and pesticides, VOCs, detergents, organic solvents, trihalomethanes, cloudiness, silt, sediment, nitrates, nitrites, heavy metals, foul tastes and odors, yet they leave in the healthful and beneficial minerals that your body needs and....
Because Black Berkey® purification elements fit most gravity flters, existing gravity filtration systems can be upgraded. This vastly improves their ability to remove unwanted contaminates.
