Product Overview

Replacement ceramic filters
Grade: Super Sterasyl
Sterasyl ceramic outer shell - Activated carbon core

British Berkefeld filters use the age-old process of micro-porous filtration used by nature coupled with modern state-of-the-art technology and the highest quality materials to produce one of the finest water filtration systems available anywhere. At the core of the sub-micron ceramic filter is the most basic of elements: Diatomaceous Earth. This is the same substance, which artisans refine into exquisite porcelain and pottery. The microscopic pores of the ceramic filter element make it an extremely efficient filter for the reduction of particulate matter, pathogenic bacteria and fine sediment from water. Minute particulate matter will quickly plug media style filters, but the ceramics have the added benefit of being re-cleanable and re-useable. The Super Sterasyl element, used in Berkey systems, utilizes the latest technological advances of ceramic filtration by incorporating pure silver impregnation into the porous ceramic shell to inhibit the growth of bacteria. Furthermore, the Super Sterasyl ceramic filter elements contain activated carbon, which reduces unwanted chemical and organic compounds from the water while also improving taste. Each filter can be cleaned many, many times before needing replacement. If using tap water, the filters will normally only need to be cleaned every 6 months. You will know when your filters need to be cleaned when the filtration rate slows down. To clean, simply rub the filters with a scotch-brite pad under running water.

This filter will fit the following gravity water filter systems:

Big Berkey
Royal Berkey

    This purchase was a gift for my daughter. She has been using the British Berkefeld Water Filter for years, and continues to be satisfied with the filtration system. The replacement filters were easy to order, and are shipped with care. Instructions

    Better than Black Berkey filters.

    Posted by Doug on 1st Feb 2019

    Our Big Berkey came with four Super Sterasyl filters. They lasted close to five years before they simply would no longer flow. We replaced them with the Black Berkey filters, which lasted barely year and a half. Needless to say, we have returned to the Super Sterasyl. Hard to improve on the Original.

    Simply the best

    Posted by Zeke on 22nd Oct 2014

    Had my Big Berkey for close to 10 years now and have yet to find a problem with it. The only problem was with the black filter units. They would not work as promised. Primed and re primed them, but to no avail. Been using the 9" white filters. Filtered all kinds of water and am presently filtering water from my dehumidifier. Be sure to keep an extra set of filters on hand. Sign of the times.

    We love our Big Berkey

    We have city water and depend upon our Berkey filter daily. We fill it maybe 5 or 6 times a day to make sure we have enough drinking and cooking water. We've had it for about 3 years and are very pleased with the results.

    Being we live in the gas drilling area of Pennsylvania we have had problems with our water. I just get out our Big Berkey filter and have no worries about clear pure water.
