Black Berkey vs Ceramic Filters , How do they compare ?
How do Black Berkey Filter and Super Sterasyl Ceramic Filters. ?
- Remove pathogenic bacteria
- Remove cysts
- Reduce organic chemicals
- Reduce chlorine
- Reduce sediment and particulate
However, the Black Berkey goes above and beyond this and also:
- Removes lead
- Removes MTBEs
- Removes other heavy metals
The Black Berkey filters also typically have a much longer lifespan than the ceramic. A pair of the Black Berkey filters is estimated by the manufacturer to last for about 6,000 gallons of water, while a pair of the ceramic filters is estimated to have an approximate lifespan of 1,000 gallons. The Black Berkey elements carry a 2-year prorated manufacturer’s warranty, while the Super Steraysl ceramic filters only carry a 6 month manufacturer’s warranty. Each filter can use a fluoride filter attached to the end of it to remove even more. We sell both and would be happy to help you with any other questions you may have!
