FAQ;  How do British Berkefeld's Ultra Sterasyl ceramic filters compare to Black Berkey elements?

Berkey and British Berkefeld filter claims of performance are comparable..

The main difference between the two, is NSF verified claims by British Berkefeld vs unverified claims by Berkey.

British Berkefeld's ceramic filters are backed by National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) certification. As required by NSF, British Berkefeld filter testing is done on an expired filter (testing at 400 and 800 gallons) So, the test results you see are on expired  Berkefeld filters.

Black Berkey Elements are not backed by NSF certification and testing on Berkey Element's is done by 3rd party labs. Testing is done on new filters (testing to 20 to 100 gallon)
