If I were to make a primitive filter using the black berkley elements, would I be able to take any type of raw water?

Hi Jeremy,

“Any type of water” is a pretty broad question. So the answer would be no. The Black Berkey Purification Elements are the best on the market but they do not filter out salt water and it is possible you may have water with naturally occurring fluoride or arsenic in it so you may need some PF-2 filters as well (see them in the “extras” tab.)

I’ve seen people advertise that you can drink sewage water with the Black Berkey Elements but I wouldn’t unless that was the last possible water source and I was absolutely desperate! ; – ) Even then I’d try to pre-filter and boil and/or chlorinate and use iodide in it before drinking. I’m just funny that way ; – )

If that doesn’t answer your question just give me a call.

All the Best,

Bill

Thanks for the prompt response. I’m looking for some sort of emergency filtration system to have stashed away in our garage if we need it. There is a creek running through our backyard with livestock in the vicinity and id like a system that would be adequate for that purpose. Chemicals and all if necessary.

Hi Jeremy,

You are quite welcome mate… and yes, the Black Berkey Purification Elements do “Purify” water NOT just “filter” it. The white ceramic filters only “filter.”

All of that said… Berkey recommends that if you suspect large amounts of “nasties” in your water that you would be well advised to treat it chemically first then let the Black Berkey Purification Elements take out the “dead bugs” and the chemicals like chlorine etc. You don’t have to do that but it might be a safety precaution worth taking.

I think the next video I make will be of me drinking swamp water with a dead fish in it or something ; – )

All the Best,

Bill
