About Berkey® Water Filter Systems:
Owning a Berkey® water filter system is a great return on investment. Berkey® water filters will let you enjoy the healthiest, cleanest, delicious, and freshest water for only pennies a day. Berkey® water filters are the ultimate and best in water purification. They are ideal for people who enjoy the outdoors traveling and for everyday personal protection use. Used all over the world for every day, hostile, and sudden emergency situations to provide the healthiest sparkling crystal clear water possible. Generations from the past and health conscious people around the world knew the foundation for a heathy life and healthy body begins with fresh and clean drinking water. Clean and fresh water is important and essential for a long healthy life. No amount of minerals, supplements, and vitamins can substitute the life sustaining properties that are found in healthy and clean drinking water. Water is the basic block foundation of life. Getting access to good, clean, and fresh water is a hard task that many people don’t think of in the daily hassle of today’s fast paced moving world. Water often is coming in filled with lead, bacteria, viruses, chlorine and other harmful chemical and contaminants that are really harmful for your body. These factors all produce many unpleasant smelling odors and unpleasant tastes that you will notice on a regular basis. Many people think that buying bottled water is the solution, but even bottled water can contain the same contaminants. Buying water bottles often is also very hard on the pockets and can be expensive to maintain on a regular basis. Many other filters don’t remove all of the viruses, bacteria, and chemicals that are found in water. Our Berkey® water filtrations systems are much more efficient and superior, because not only do they remove all the harmful chemicals and bacteria found in water, they keep all the beneficial materials that our bodies need to be maintained and functioning at the highest level possible.
Berkey® water filter systems have been long recognized as the world’s ultimate filtration systems in water purification. They can clean the water found in lakes, the water found in ponds, and the water found streams, just to name a few. The technology is quite simple as it was developed more than 210 years ago. The effective method is known as gravity feeding. It still produces the cleanest, finest, and purest fresh water available. Berkey® water filter systems purify both treated and untreated raw water sources in areas such as ponds and foreign, undeveloped countries where water regulations are not always standard and to the level of developed regions. Berkey® water filter systems are a great add-on for outdoor activities where water pressure, treated water, and electricity may not be available. Berkey® water filter systems are so powerful that they can remove red food coloring from the water without removing the beneficial minerals and nutrients our bodies need. They remove chemicals such as pesticides, herbicides, VOC’s (violate organic compounds), organic solvents, silt, odors, sediment, foul tastes, and detergents. They also remove harmful viruses such as cysts, e-coli, parasites, and bacteria.
Berkey® water purification process:
The process of water getting filtered is very complex. Several methods that are well known, are used to products the black Berkey® purification elements. The methods are blended and combines to produce a very unique filter process. Most of these methods are to the likes which most of the world has never seen prior to before. The first line of defense in the Berkey® water filter systems are the elements that re composed of a formulation of more than six different various media types. They are constructed in a very compact matrix shape that contains millions of pores that can only be seen my microscope technology. These pores are so small that they produce a pathway that eliminate bacteria, parasites, cysts, and sedimentary material. These pathways are very small, and all pollutants physical passing cannot enter through them, thus they become trapped and are eliminated from your clean and healthy drinking water. This is known as microfiltration. After the media formulation uses a special absorption and adsorption properties that are very useful in this procedure. Adsorption is the adhesion of atoms, ions, or molecules from a gas, liquid, or dissolved solid to a surface. This process creates a film of the adsorbate on the surface of the adsorbent. Absorption is a physical or chemical phenomenon or a process in which atoms, molecules or ions enter some bulk phase – gas, liquid or solid material. Adsorption works to create an ionic barrier similar to that of surface tension. This works and s suited perfectly to the micro porous water filter because it allows the tiny pores to block harmful water contaminants that are smaller than the pore size itself. This blocking process is why a Berkey® water filter system is the best filter system available in the market today. It is able to remove the harmful viruses that other brands of water filters cannot do, and if they can they use chemical such as chlorine and iodine.
Chlorine is a chemical element with symbol Cl and atomic number 17. The second-lightest of the halogens, it appears between fluorine and bromine in the periodic table and its properties are mostly intermediate between them. The risk of developing cancer is 93% higher in people who drink or are otherwise exposed to chlorinated water². Chlorine is a potential health hazard to both children and adults, and it is an issue that should be taken quite seriously. Iodine is a chemical element with symbol I and atomic number 53. The heaviest of the stable halogens, it exists as a lustrous, purple-black metallic solid at standard conditions that sublimes readily to form a violet gas.
After the heavy metals are extracted and remove from the water through an ion exchange process where they are transformed and attracted by electrically bonding to the media. The water molecules have gravity flow nature so it will take several minutes to pass through the filter elements. Other filters will take seconds thus are much less effective compared to the Berkey® water filter systems. More time between the water particles and filter media provide much more grater removal of harmful and dangerous contaminates that are found in water. This is not possible to do through basic conventional pressurized water filters that use pressure to do their job. This is why the Berkey® water filter systems incorporate several different basic and scientific methods to produce water that is unmatched in taste and quality. This is all done through basic steps and nothing is complex in this process. The only process is to fill your Berkey® water filter system up with water and let the system do its magic. As soon as water is filled in the stainless steel Berkey® water filter system container the process will continue to start and you will be getting your clear, fresh, and tasty water in a matter of time. The Berkey® water filter system will provide you with fresh water for years to come and also for only pennies a gallon/liter. Talk about savings!
How Berkey® water filter systems operate:
To use your system simple pour water in the upper chamber of your Berkey® water filter system. There is no other work to be done. This is because gravity draws the water through the exclusive water purification elements where the harmful bacteria, viruses, and contaminants are captured and stored. The water is separated within the micro porous elements and released into the lower chamber of your Berkey® water filter system where it can be poured through the spigot located in the front. The Berkey® water filter systems are effective and very easy to use. The Berkey® water filter system elements are cleanable and can be used on for years to come to provide you and your family with the fresh and clean you deserve.
