Product Overview

9" 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
Imperial Berkey
Crown Berkey
British Berkefeld
Doulton

    The quality of the Big Berkey water filter is
    second to none. I personally enjoy the delicious taste. I am so pleased that I would not consider even looking for any other filter. The ease and efficiency is priceless and a great quality for the money.
